Codemasters announced today that a demo for F1 RACE STARS will be available for download this week ahead of the game’s race into retail on November 16th. In the demo players will experience FORMULA ONE powered-up on the F1 RACE STARS Germany track in both single-player and up to four-player split-screen.
The F1 RACE STARS demo will be available for download today for the X360 in Europe and North America. The demo will then be available from Steam for Windows PC worldwide and PS3 in Europe on Wednesday, November 7th; the demo will arrive for PlayStation 3 in North America on Tuesday, November 13th.
In the demo players can race as Jenson Button, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel or Kimi Räikkönen and compete with other official and fictional FORMULA ONE drivers, transformed into heroic caricatures that are bursting with personality.
In the sprint for the chequered flag, gamers can utilise 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.
Codemasters has also released a new trailer for its upcoming racer that can be viewed below.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
