F1 2010 – Two New Previews & Release Date Confirmation

As announced yesterday, Codemasters has just released two brand new screenshots of their upcoming Formula One 2010 game for the PC, the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3.

The shots show a full field of Formula One cars racing in the Bahrainian desert and in the rain at Malaysia. As with the first previews in the Official Xbox Magazine, the shots sport the 2009 season cars as placeholders as the current field is still in development.

Furthermore, Codemasters has confirmed the release date rumors as Formula One 2010 is scheduled to be released in September 2010. As the title will be released with the real F1 season still going on, players will be able to drive on the brand new Korean Grand Prix circuit even before the real drivers do.

Following their maiden Formula One title that was released only for the Playstation Portable and the Nintendo Wii, Codemasters will be bringing the 2010 Formula One season to the PC, the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3. F1 2010 has been confirmed to be released in September 2010.

    There’s two of them, Oran Park LiDAR and Eastern Creek.

    Indeed. Eastern Creek was the one I forgot about.

    C) is it so hard to believe? every CM game using this engine has this problem and for the looks of this pics they still didn’t fixed it.

    Siggs:
    Bloom and colour palette is not a problem, it’s the other elements of the graphics I’m interested in. Look here;http://www.nogripracing.com/forum/showthread.php?t=190078g

    So… formation lap is fun? I can’t really see anything fun in it. Besides, what purpose gameplay-wise would it serve? The only thing that could happen is crashing when trying to heat up the tires, engine stalling (Minardi, where are you? We need more break downs during formation lap!) or stopping in the wrong start bracket.

    I take it I’m not a sim racer as, given the option, one of the first things I’d do would be scrap the formation lap, I’ve got better things to do than waste 3 virtual minutes.

  • rstratton

    im not expecting much from this game. prolly gonna fail like operation failpoint dragon failure

    Its a fair point about the formation lap. The option is in rFactor but I virtually never use it.

    Although on the flip side of that, if you are going to make a full F1 sim…

    Agreed! Maybe for leagues that race once a week, but I wouldn’t want to waste my time with a formation lap either. Just start rolling 5 secs before you cross the s/f line is plenty of time.

    felipe:
    first interesting to see Rob allowing this kinda of stuff here it’s getting lower everyday in here.And yes Power to the Keyboard Warrior warrrrrrrr!!!!

    Oh no….i hurt poor little felipe’s feelings…do you need mommy because the big bad man swore at you on the internet?

    Get over yourself.

  • Siggs

    Well, there was absolutely no need to swear, I think is what the problem was. Civility costs nothing.

  • moppenheimer

    When has he ever been civil? and wth do i care if people find swearing ON THE INTERNET offensive… :roll:

  • moppenheimer

    Pressed submit too soon, so ill finish here Because i cant edit.

    Ill drop it. Ill just give felipe the rope and he can hang himself from now on.

    Rob, if you find my swear word anymore offensive than the excessive unmoderated trolling that felipe partakes in, then go ahead and remove my post please.

    The thing is that “trolling” is something no one can do anything about.

    If felipe thinks everything but Gran Turismo is rubbish then he’s free to voice his opinion. God knows I don’t agree with him but not agreeing is part of having a discussion.

    Anyways, I try to keep these comments as little moderated as possible as I know that many people hate forums that are strictly moderated.

    But when it comes to swearing, a line is crossed. That does not add anything to the conversion but just upsets some people. So please discuss and argue but keep it civil…don’t post anything that you wouldn’t want your own kids (if you have any) to read here….

    F1Racer…good reasoned post. I love iRacings Laser scanned tracks which are extremely accurate (both on track and off), but it’s not absolutely necessary for a ‘study’ sim like an F1 model. I would only hope for reasonably accurate tracks along the line of many old GTR level products.

    Since I don’t really drive classic ‘arcade’ type racing games, I really want to see a decent effort at an F1 simulation and can’t really be optimistic about what I’ve recently read about this. But hey, if they delivered it would be a pleasant surprise.

    I don’t like the pictures. So sick already of that sepia “nextgen” coloring . We see this “style” in almost every genre now . A something that looks like a medieval watercolor found in a dusty loft. Why just not do it like it is in reality without any visual style applied. Nature is so beautiful and there is absolutely no need to cripple it with any kind of coloring. Even the rainy picture looks like had been taken during WW2 on a kind of dull early color film.
