First details emerge for F1 2012

Codemasters has revealed the first details for F1 2012, the latest entry in its official Formula One racing series, which will debut in September 2012.

The new Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC game aims to be the most fully-featured instalment to date, with improved visuals, refined gameplay and the inclusion of all the official teams, drivers and circuits from the 2012 F1 season.

This will include the debut of the Formula One United States Grand Prix in Austin, as well as the reintroduction of Germany's iconic Hockenheim circuit.

Meanwhile, F1 2012 will also introduce a new Young Driver Test mode, an ultra-authentic series of tutorials that will coach players on how to get the best out of their racing machines before earning their place on a team.

Up-and-coming British F1 racer said: "I think Codemasters have done a super job of giving regular people a proper insight into what a Formula One car is like."

Codemasters recently extended its deal to continue making its acclaimed official F1 games for the next few years, with a brand new racing game designed especially for younger players set to be revealed soon.
