Friday November 16 sees the release of F1 Race Stars from Codemasters Racing, the home of the BAFTA-awarding winning series of official Formula One games.

F1 Race Stars is a fast-to-the-fun arcade racing game that the whole family can play together and features the official Formula One teams, circuits and cars as they’ve never been seen before.

On every straight, hairpin and barrel roll, players will experience F1 Race Stars’ unique brand of superfast Formula One racing as they race with all the official Formula One drivers, transformed into heroic caricatures bursting with personality.

In the sprint for the chequered flag, gamers can pick and choose from a range of fantasy and Formula One themed power-ups, from calling in Wet Weather to slow the pack, deploying DRS to speed past rivals and using a range of sneaky bubbles to trap other drivers. If their car takes damage, gamers can race through the pit lane to get back up to speed, whilst a variety of different routes, boost pads and shortcuts will all slingshot players ahead.

To preview the game, you can visit www.F1RaceStars.com and click ‘Game Info’ to view the gameplay video to see the cast of F1 Race Stars speed through loop-the-loops, soar through the sky making huge jumps and charge through tunnels whilst collecting and using a range of fun power-ups to boost ahead or slow down their rivals.

From battling for position beneath a neon-lit Ferris wheel in Singapore and dodging a Truckasaurus in the USA, the video reveals how each circuit in the game turns into a fantastical stage of Formula One fun. Packed with audacious overtaking moves, cheeky taunts and speedy boosts, see the F1 Race Stars speed through castles, forests and more.

Designed to share the fun with friends and family, F1 Race Stars includes four-player split-screen racing, which can be combined online for 12 player multiplayer gaming.

F1 Race Stars is available for Xbox 360®, PS3™ and Windows PC. To purchase visit the F1 Store.
