Video game developer Codemasters has revealed that F1 2012 will launch in North America on Sept. 18, 2012 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The title is the next entry into Codemasters' Formula One racing video game series as part of an exclusive multi-year deal with Formula One World Championship Limited.
A new video developer diary has been made available as well. It details several of F1 2012's new features. These features include the Young Driver Test, which will act as the game's tutorial mode, teaching the player about the nuances of racing a Formula One car.
"The aim for the 2012 game is to make more of a complete Forumula One experience," commented F1 2012's Creative Director Stephen Hood. "[The Young Driver Test] gives those up and coming drivers track time to showcase their talents and it's wonderful that we are able to copy the elements that happen on those real Young Driver Test sessions in the game."
F1 2012 has been rated "E for Everybody" by the ESRB.
