F1 Online: The Game – Update Introduces News Features & New Circuit
In recent weeks the news from Codemasters has mainly focused on the numerous patches released by the F1 2012 development team however this week Codemasters announced a range of new features and a brand-new circuit that is now available in their free-to-play model title F1 Online: The Game.
F1 Online: The Game, currently in open Beta, today adds three new circuits in Japan which can be raced with up to 24 players online. Complimenting the existing licensed circuits and expanding the fictional environments to six, the new Japan routes are inspired by Tokyo and offer three different street racing challenges. ‘Kitamachi Kaido’ offers a short sprint through a financial district with aggressive corners, the ‘Higashi Kokado’ is a high-speed sprint through docklands and includes a dramatic elevated expressway and the ‘Ryokuen Route’ is an extensive race in which players speed through parks and past Imperial Palaces.
In addition to those updates was the introduction of all-new High-Performance A-Class components, new Team headquarters upgrades and a Friends system which will enable players to invite friends to a race. A range of new Team Objectives extend the game further and players will now be able to sign-up and login to the game via Facebook.
