Codemasters’ Free-to-Play F1 Race Stars Hits iOS Today, Screenshots and Trailer

In a press release sent to us this morning by Codemasters, the developer announced that free-to-play F1 Race Stars will hit iOS today and will be made available through the App Store.

Here is what the developer had to say about the game:

F1 RACE STARS features a deep, content-rich single-player game, including five different game modes. Gamers can compete against FORMULA ONE drivers, including Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso, or race as a fantasy driver – each with their own unique special abilities – including Robot, Ninja, Secret Agent and many more. Players can also collect and combine hundreds of upgrades to improve and customise their on-track performance. The single player game is further extended with local multiplayer racing available via Bluetooth for two-players and over WiFi for up to four players.

Gary Rowe, VP Digital Business, Codemasters, said,

F1 RACE STARS is a hugely exciting project for us. Combining our experience in delivering award-winning FORMULA 1 videogames with the next leap forward with our in-house technology, F1 RACE STARS delivers racing fans of all ages the gameplay, visuals and content expected of a full console release, free-to-play on iOS.”
“This is an all-new F1 RACE STARS development for iOS. It retains the depth of a console experience, but has been designed from the ground up for portable play. The handling is easy to pick up and features a new powerslide mechanic for building boosts as you race around each of our fast and furious new circuits. The game is packed with content, including different race modes, power-ups and upgrades and the rich single player experience is complemented by local multiplayer modes,” said Chris Gray, Senior Producer, Codemasters.
“By using our latest EGO technology, we’re able to deliver console-quality visuals on smart devices, including High Dynamic Range rendering with bloom, an extensive range of full screen post process effects, such as blur, anti-aliasing, dynamic weather, and much more. Basically, it looks amazing and is really impressive on a big screen thanks to its native TV out support, especially when played with a game controller.”
