F1 2011 - Developer Diary #4

Codemasters have released the 4th and final developer diary video of their upcoming F1 2011 racing game. This video features all new gameplay footage and reveals the all-new Safety Car in action alongside a range of season updates that make the game feel completely different.

"Safety car - a lot of people have been asking us for it. We'd always said we'd only do it when it was absolutely right, so now it's available in single player and multiplayer," said Stephen Hood, Chief Games Designer.

All of the rule changes from the 2011 FIA FORMULA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP are included to give players the authentic Formula 1 experience. KERS - Kinetic Energy Recovery System - gives players an acceleration boost to launch out of corners. DRS - Drag Reduction System - adds acceleration for overtaking in specified zones around each circuit and the new Pirelli tires affect performance and handling of the cars on track, changing qualifying and racing strategy. "These three things alone make the game feel completely different," added Stephen Hood.

F1 2011 launches for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC Games For Windows on September 23rd in the UK.
