F1 2011 – TV Ad + Third Developer Diary

Codemasters have released two new videos of their upcoming F1 2011 title that recently reached the gold status and will be out in 15 days time.

The first video is the game’s upcoming TV advert that will run on channels across the globe. The second is the third developer diary which focuses on the brand-new co-op championship mode and includes some new gameplay footage.

In related news, F1 2011 is now available for pre-order on Steam, giving early buyers a 10% discount on the regular price. Using the discount, the PC version sells for 35,99€ instead of 39,99€.

F1 2011 will be released for the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on September 23, right in time for the final races of the real life 2011 Formula One World Championship season. The new title will come with improved graphics & handling, new features such as multiplayer splitscreen, a working safety car as well as a much more extensive career mode.

    Love the AD!! really speaks to me as a SIM  Racer..

  • Marcus Caton

    Like the Ad, why they Never show the In Car View in the Videos is beyond me.

  • Ricoo

    At least they lowered the price compared to F1 2010 50 bucks release price, but it is still a lot too expensive for a patch that should be free… :/

  • Pascal H.

    F1 2011 wikll be more than an update to 2010. It will basicly be a totally different expereicnce.

  • Chris Wright

    Oh wow, I didn’t realize it was $50 bucks – where is that advertised?

  • Ricoo

    In fact it was 50 € what was around 70 $ here. It was Steam price.

  • Raymond Schram

    The only thing that bothers me with thie game is the ride height of the cars, especially Mclaren is way to high off the ground. Onboard this won’t matter much, but the replays will look silly. Not a game braker, but a pretty wierd thing to have ingame.

  • Explosive Face

    Yeah, they should definitely release F1 2011 as a patch. I mean, it only has a new physics engine, new AI, updated graphics, updated rules, new models and new features. Compared to what ISI are doing with rFactor 2, that’s nothing! They’re doing a new physics engine, updated graphics, upda… Oh wait.

  • Ricoo

    We will see if it is so ground breaking, but I doubt seriously, and without a demo it is again impossible to be sure without going the warez road… :/

  • Ricoo

    Guys this is out of subject but I can’t wait for a new subject from Montoya, you need to know that imediately:

    All that worries me is the lack of wheel spin in F1 2010. I read back then about it and a lot of people said its easily to spin the car if you floor the gas out of a corner. But for me, it just wasn’t there…I could floor it without any problem in my first try :s. I hope they have fixed that…because a semi-sim should at least get that right.

    Kunos Simulazioni is celebrating 5 years of netKar-pro, releasing the final version 1.3 at only 14.90€!

    Don’t agree, sorry. A patch would be a correction of the features in the original game.

    Codemasters have, I believe, learned a lot from the mistakes last year and F1 2011 offers a lot more.

    Saying that it should be a free patch is like saying that Dodge should give me a free version of my road car each time a new model comes out.

  • Ricoo

    Chriss you say yourself that Codemasters did mistakes with F1 2010.

    I agree with that, and that’s why I think F1 2011 should be free as a patch for F1 2010 owners to correct those mistakes.

  • the-o-mad

    the F1’s license cost so much.. why should they give you their product for free?
