F1 2011 – Two New Videos

With the Gamescom Expo being wrapped up, the last bits of F1 2011 material is here as Codemasters have finally released the latest video trailer of their upcoming Formula One title.

The trailer first surfaced four days ago, being filmed off a screen at the expo. Now, the HD version is available, allowing us to check out plenty of racing action and the atmospheric parc ferme & paddock sequences.

Furthermore, a new gameplay video of the showfloor demo is available, showing an action-packed race at Abu Dhabi in Michael Schumacher’s Mercedes.

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.

    The graphics are awesome, the best I have ever seen!!! If the physics were the same as iRacing has this would be an awesome sim! I was very very disappointed by F1 2010, so I hope they get the physics done right this time, but I am afraid that this will be another arcade only game to be played with a gamepad while lying on the couch.

    I wonder if the AI in this game also use the KERS and DRS in orderto try and pass the player and each other. 
    Also if they know where the most efficient places or moments are to use the KERS in a given circumstance.

    Cos in offline mode, if its only the player thats able to take advantage or these 2 devices, it kinds spoils the experience.

    AI was way smarter? I dont see it. AI still takes dumb lines and overtakes are only done by just divebombing.

  • F1Racer

    What are you referring to when you say “AI was way smarter” ?   “was?”    Confused. *DONT_KNOW*

    nice to see they’ve kept the dog-barking-yelp sounds for the downshifts. 
    what a load of garbage. clinging on for rfactor2…

    It’s definitely not a sim, what are your expectations, guys ?

    Codemasters will never make simulators, they are an arcade games company. Always have been, always will be. And they are the best at what they do : arcade racing games.
    Unless you start to appreciate their work for what it is, you’ll never enjoy Codie’s amazing work !

    As I’m not into F1 seasons, I much prefer iRacing’s FW31 over F1 201X as physics are more important to me at that level of driving concentrations, but boy do I enjoy the DiRT series for some great fun !
