F1 2011 cooperative championship mode detailed

Codemasters has provided details of the all-new cooperative championship mode that will make its debut in the new racing game F1 2011.

The online multiplayer mode will allow two friends to compete for the same driving team over the course of a racing season, meaning they will work together to compete for the constructors' championship, while acting as rivals for the individual title.

It will allow players to experience the unique balance of cooperation and competition that exists among real-life Formula One teammates, while offering a more dynamic and personal experience than racing with an AI partner.

Chief game designer Stephen Hood said: "It's about trying to fight to be the leader of a team. It makes for a completely different experience, playing with a friend."

F1 2011 will make its debut on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this month and will be aiming to emulate the chart-topping success of last year's F1 2010.

Handheld versions of the game are also in development for Nintendo 3DS and the new PlayStation Vita.
