I know with all the Forza Horizon talk it seems like things may have been quiet on the F1 front but today Codemasters made big news by releasing a demo for F1 2012 today on Xbox Live! The demo will allow players to try out the new “Young Driver’s Test” mode as well as some of the challege modes players can do during a season of competition. In addition to the demo Codemasters also dropped a new trailer and screen shots! All of which, can be seen below. If you have a Playstation 3 or your a PC gamer, have no worries as the demo will hit the Playstation Network and PC (via Steam) tomorrow (Sept. 11th 2012). If for some reason you cannot download the trailer, you can still relax because the game will be released in just 8 more days (Sept. 18th 2012)!

Fresh from my inbox I have just recieved word that even though the real-life Circuit Of The Americas in Austin is not completed yet; a finished virtual version of the track will be in Codemasters F1 2012 and be completely playable. Representatives from Codemasters released the first screen shots for the game and those shots show the current crop of F1 cars on the Austin race track. The circuit will actually be playable at E3 (which I will be attending) so if the PR-Ninjas let me I will try to get some gameplay footage for you. In the meantime enjoy the screen shots below and stay tuned for more info!

Just as the 2012 Formula 1 season is about to go underway Codemasters announces the release date (September 2012) of F1 2012as well as announcing that a new game mode “Young Driver’s Test” will be included in the next installment. In the game the Young Driver’s Test seems to combine a tutorial along with career mode. The game will walk the players through a few driving techniques then they will be sent out to earn a spot on a team. It is likely that a players performance during the test will determine what team they will end up on. In the first development diary for F1 2012 game directors Paul Jeal and Stephen Hood visited the real Young Drivers test at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi to see if playing their game helped the drivers with their test. How helpful is the game when compared to the real thing? You will see all that from the young drivers themselves in the video below.
