Codemasters Announce F1 Race Stars, An F1 Kart Racing Game

Later this year Codemasters will be releasing F1 2012 onto the shop shelves and it should be the most accurate representation of the sport yet, providing a chance for all of us mere mortals to experience the thrill of racing a F1 car around Monoco. But what if want a less realistic take on Formula One? While that seems like a bit of a strange idea, Codemasters believe there’s a market for it as they have today announced F1 Race Stars, a kart racing game based around the intense sport.

The new game will release in November and features all the official teams and drivers from the real-life sport, albeit with all of them sporting a slightly different look. All the tracks from the F2 calender will also be featured, but they’ll all be sporting fantastical redesigns that dd in things like jumps and loop-the-loops for some high-speed insanity. And of course the game will also be featuring power-ups, a staple of the kart racing genre.

Codemasters are also promising an extensive career mode that boasts multiple championships, four-player split-screen action and 12-player online mayhem.

Chris Gray, Senior Producer on F1 RACE STARS, had this to say: “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 FORMULA ONE racing experience quite unlike any other.”

F1 Race Stars will be released in November of this year for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.
