F1 2010 weather effects

Codemasters released a new dev diary focusing on F1 2010's weather effects. It was about time the British publisher decided to bring back the rain in one of their racing games.

Day one buy for me. First F1 game on Xbox 360, let's hope it delivers...

This could look so bloody awesome without the piss filter and framerate drops.

That's why I'm buying the PC version. framerates won't be an issue and you can mod out the brown filter.

very very cool, surprised that they still have 09 cars though, by now I thought they would have changed them.

Man, that rain looks good. and its awesome that the cars dry the track where they drive, creating different traction and tire wear characteristics. For true F1, this might be better than GT5, which (reportedly) has no weather effects.

The tires have so much detail. I might get this! (not because of the tires, mind you)

Shit or i mean shift was about driver effect this will be rain/heat game. No game comes close to my favourite. Looks like the destiny is clear - no real driving simulator this year, besides GT ofcourse.

There is no excuse for a simulation racing game to have poor frame rates after Forza 3 released. Not only does Forza 3 have a very demanding physics engine it also runs at 60 fps solidly.

Don't think they can beat or even come close to gp3's rain model

It looks good. Their all racing games have been 30fps and all have looked great. Hopefully this is more sim as it is supposed to be

Impressive tech. Too bad I'm not an F1 fan.

cannot wait seem more of this, also hope it has co-op for team play in season

I hope they they upgrade to 60FPS on F1 2011, it would really help the flow of the gameplay(they already nailed the graphics).

That was really impressive, I will be buying this game at some point

As good as it looks I could never get excited about F1... It's just NASCAR with more turns =P I like to see bigger car and tuning variety
