Formula 1 games in two stages

Codemasters have been talking to IGN about the new Formula 1 games they’ve got in the pipeline.

Formula 1 2009 will be first, out in the autumn for just Wii and PSP. It’s sounding reasonably comprehensive: KERS, strategy calls and weather systems during races, a three-year career mode, smaller challenges, multiplayer – all that. Importantly, the game will adjust to the player’s skill, which is always a good thing.

Exactly how it’s going to work on Wii isn’t clear yet. Neither is it clear how the unpredictable 2009 season is going to be handled – but I’ve written more about that elsewhere.

A fuller career mode seems to be lined up for Formula 1 2010, which will be released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next year – because it’s going to take longer to develop than the Wii and PSP interpretation. Nothing much is being said about that game at the moment though.


Jake has been here since the beginning, with hundreds of reviews and countless other guff to his name. These days, not so consistent.
