Game developer Codemasters has revealed today the first gameplay trailer for the F1 2011 game, the follow up to last year’s F1 2010. The F1 2011 is still under development at Codemasters Birmingham for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC and is now available for pre-order.
The trailer for F1 2011 gives players a look into the video game’s portrayal of Silverstone. It also gives an insight into the enhancements and innovations in the official game of the 2011 FIA F1 World Championship. The video shows the thrilling wheel to wheel racing, which is enchanced by KERS and DRS, and highlights the imporved paddock, garage, pit lane and Parc Fermé cinematics that further immerse the gamer into the Formula One driver’s life.
The development team of the F1 2011 game uses the EGO Game Technology Platform, the proprietary tech of Codemasters that powered the games F1 2010, DiRT 3 and GRID.
The enhanced multiplayer feature lets 16 players compete online, and a split-screen mode that lets you play against your friends. When asked about the possibility of a 24-car online multiplayer feature, lead game designer Stephen Hood said that “the [current] technology can’t handle it.”
Former Formula One driver Anthony Davidson, who also helped develop the racing sim, said: “I found the last game enjoyable and this game is more polished in every sense. It’s got better handling, it’s easier to control, it’s more predictable in where you place the car and is graphically enhanced too.”
