F1 Race Stars gets demo

Filed under News

Codemasters today announced that a demo for F1 Race Stars will be available for download this week ahead of the game’s race into retail on November 16th. In the demo players will experience Formula One powered-up on the F1 Race Stars Germany track in both single-player and up to four-player split-screen. On every straight, hairpin and jump, players will experience the game’s unique brand of super-fast F1 racing as they race through a Bavarian castle, accelerate on the autobahn and fly through a forest.

The demo will be available for download today on the Xbox360. The demo will then be available from Steam for Windows PC worldwide and PS3 on November 7th.

In the demo players can race as Jenson Button, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel or Kimi Räikkönen and compete with other official and fictional Formula One drivers, transformed into heroic caricatures that are bursting with personality.

In the sprint for the chequered flag, gamers can utilise a range of fantasy and Formula One themed power-ups, from calling in Wet Weather to slow the pack, deploying DRS to speed past rivals and using a range of sneaky bubbles to trap other drivers. If their car takes damage, gamers can race through the pit lane to get back up to speed, whilst a variety of different routes, boost pads and shortcuts will all slingshot players ahead.

To celebrate, Codemasters also released a brand new trailer. The trailer shows Formula One stars zooming past giant sumo robots in Japan, racing through a carnival in Brazil and dodging a Truckosaurus in the USA on F1 Race Stars’ unique circuits. In a super-charged sprint for the chequered flag, the trailer shows the drivers using different power-ups – including Safety Car, Teleport and DRS – to gain the advantage on their rivals and race around special Kers corners to get a speedy boost.
