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

    KORNdog @alimokrane: didn't you buy quantum break? Eurogamer didn't like that much either. (4 minutes ago)

    alimokrane Besides, I didnt say it was a bad game (5 minutes ago)

    alimokrane @GriftGFX: Eurogamer is a website I trust more than the hundred of useless websites these days. (7 minutes ago)

    MrWhite @GriftGFX: Nor, I but it is a nice solution in VR when there's no hand tracking built in from the ground up. I found it adds to the tension too when you struggle to keep yourself calm for a headshot. (41 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I wish people would just go with what they feel. If a game looks awesome to you, and it makes you look forward to playing it, then just fucking buy the thing and enjoy stop listing to prats on the net (42 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I don't like the "aim where you look" VR controls but I guess that's better than aiming with an analog stick. (43 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: indicative of modern internet review culture, sadly. (44 minutes ago)
