CODEMASTERS® ANNOUNCES CHAMPIONS MODE FOR F1 2012TM
New gameplay video reveals new game mode that lets you take on six FORMULA ONETM WORLD CHAMPIONS
August 6th, 10:00 – London, UK – Codemasters today announced a brand new game mode for F1 2012. ‘Champions Mode’ will enable players to take on each of the six FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONS competing in the 2012 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™ in individual race scenarios designed for quick play and instant action.
F1 2012’s Champions Mode will challenge players to take on each of the six champions in turn, starting with Kimi Räikkönen, followed by Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso and then Michael Schumacher. Each champion has his own race scenario where the player must beat that driver in order to unlock the next challenge.
The Kimi Räikkönen challenge sees the player join a race as Kimi’s teammate at Spa Francorchamps. The player has just pitted and is on new tyres while the rest of the pack is on worn rubber with three laps to go until the end of the race. In order to complete the scenario the player has to race through the pack and overtake Kimi before the end of the race.
Champions Mode will be playable for the first time at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany from August 15th to 19th on the NamcoBandai booth in Hall 9, Booth C11.
F1 2012 will launch in September for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION ®3 computer entertainment system and PC. F1 2012 will feature all of the official teams, drivers and circuits from the 2012 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, including the debut of the 2012 FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX at Austin, Texas and the return of Germany’s famous Hockenheim circuit to the calendar.
F1 2012 is in development at Codemasters Birmingham and is available for pre-order ahead of its September worldwide release. To get all the news straight from the studio, race over to www.facebook.com/formula1game or follow the team on twitter at www.twitter.com/formula1game
Not on Xbox? Odd, since FFXV is coming to it. (2 minutes ago)
FF7R probably won't end up on Xbox. Tetsuya already said they have no plans for a port. "The play it first on PS4" thing could simply mean PC after, but no guarantee of that either. (1 Hour ago)
@alimokrane: Yep definitely a shame. But i guess there wasnt any profit for games like the 360 JRPGs? (3 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: I alway have at the back of my mind that Unreal Engine makes it a lot easier to port that's all :D (4 Hours ago)
And there are other economic factors beyond that too.. guess we can only wait and see. (4 Hours ago)
or the Luminous engine as thats multiplatform too. [url] (4 Hours ago)
The portability of UE4 games is a factor but it's not like a one-button process :D (4 Hours ago)
