F1 2011 Walkthrough
A True Formula One Experience
F1 2011 is the sequel to the BAFTA winning Formula One video game from Codemasters, the developer and publisher of award-winning racing games. Developed under Codemasters’ exclusive worldwide agreement with Formula One World Championship Limited, F1 2011 comes complete with all the official drivers, teams and circuits featuring in the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship.
A New Focus on Multiplayer Gaming
F1 2011 builds extensively on the multiplayer options from F1 2010. Split-screen racing is included for the first time in a high-definition Formula One title. Competitive online racing is extended with 16 players going head-to-head in Grand Prix with up to 8 AI drivers added to simulate the full grid of 24 drivers. An innovative new co-op Championship enables two players to lead their favorite Formula One team to Driver and Constructor glory across the course of a Formula One season. These enhancements are complimented by additional quick fire modes including Time Attack.
New Circuits for 2011
Two stunning new additions to the race calendar extend the number of circuits to feature in F1 2011 to 19. Players will be able to debut ahead of the drivers on the Buddh International Circuit, the home of the first Formula 1 Grand Prix of India and players will be able to test themselves on the iconic Nürburging circuit for the first time in High Definition, as this legendary track returns for the 2011 season.
Be the Driver, Live the Life
From the paddock to the track, F1 2011 takes players closer to the experience of being a Formula One driver than ever before. A new Parc Ferme area, an expanded and revamped Paddock, new Pit Lane, celebration and reaction cinematics and an enhanced media interaction system fully immerse players in the glamour, pressure and excitement of being a Formula One driver. Players progress from rookie to FIA Formula One Drivers’ World Champion in an extensive career mode where gamers fight to become priority driver and shape the development of the car by performing well in races and earning performance upgrades.
All the Cars, All the Stars
Fully licensed, F1 2011 features all the drivers set to contest the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship, including Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso, Michael Schumacher and Jenson Button. All 2011 teams are represented including Ferrari, Red Rull Racing, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes and Lotus Renault GP in their iconic black and gold livery.
KERS, DRS and More
F1 2011 includes all the new rule changes set to make this year’s season the most exciting yet. F1 2011 debuts DRS (Drag Reduction System) – the new system which enables drivers to adjust the rear wing on the car to give a boost of up to 10km. KERS also returns, giving players an extra 80BHP for up to 6.67 seconds, enabling drivers to blast past rivals. Combined, these systems encourage close wheel-to-wheel racing with new options for both defense and attack. This season’s new Pirelli tires are faithfully simulated in the game, and if players push their car too hard they may experience a range of authentic new damage failures.
Day and Night Racing
The 2011 Formula 1 Ethiad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix comes alive with a full day/night transition which recreates the special atmosphere at this unique track. Every one of the existing circuits from the 2010 roster has been given a complete visual overhaul. New atmospheric effects, including dynamic clouds, compliment a weather system which features an advanced rain model that affects on-track grip. Powered by the EGO Game Technology Platforms, F1 2011 pushes forward the graphical standard of what can be achieved in a racing game.
