Its Formula 1 with a unique twist, as Codemasters announce F1 Race Stars, a brand new intellectual property set for release in November for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The reveal trailer below showcases Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel take to the track; a U-turn ahead lifts into the sky, forcing the drivers to accelerate.
It’s an interesting take on Formula 1 styled racing, including 4-player split-screen, 12 player online play and a range of power ups to collect and deploy. It seems that F1 Race Stars is trying to take pole position from MarioKart.
“We’re really excited to bring the whole cast of FORMULA ONE into a fun new world of racing. We’ve really let our Art and Design teams off the leash to bring F1 stars’ personalities alive in a new way and create a game where racing fans of all ages can jump into all-action solo, split-screen and online multiplayer races. It’s the game we’ve wanted to create for a long time and, building on our strong relationship with Formula One Management Limited, we’re now able to bring Codemasters’ long-standing expertise in track design and AI to create a F1 racing experience quite unlike any other.”
