Proper gameplay hits the web
Choose your weapon
Onrush isn't your normal arcade racer, mixing together the speedy thrills of genre greats with team-based multiplayer found in shooters and sports games. The new trailer, which we've embedded above, outlines each of the eight vehicle types, taking you through their unique abilities and advantages. Hopefully this gives you a better...
Onrush is a bit of an oddball. An arcade racer with no traditional races, the focus is squarely on contributing towards team-based objectives. There are no laps or checkered flags; this game is gunning for something a little different. By combining the high-speed, high-risk thrills of games like Burnout, Motorstorm, and SSX with...
We were treated to a whole bunch of new coverage concerning Codemasters' upcoming arcade racer, Onrush, recently. It finally gave us a grasp of what the game is gunning for, and this latest trailer emphasises the game's unrelenting, action-focused pace. If you crash, you're put straight back in the thick of it -- no frustrating catching...
Proper gameplay hits the web
A press event was recently held for Onrush, and impressions and videos are beginning to boost online. What's clear from all of them, including the above video from Eurogamer, is that Codemasters' new racing game isn't exactly the Motorstorm clone it initially looked like. This video does a great job of breaking down...
No need to rush
Onrush, the upcoming arcade racer from the minds behind Motorstorm and DriveClub, has been kept tightly under wraps. The last trailer for the game comprised of gameplay, but none of it was from the player's perspective, leaving many people wondering what the racer will look like when they get in the driver's seat. Thankfully, the...
New footage at last
The Onrush social media channels have been teasing new footage of the upcoming arcade racer for what feels like an eternity, but a new video has finally made its way online. Featuring various different courses and vehicle types, this bears more than a passing resemblance to Motorstorm, which is no bad thing in our books. It...
The calm before the stampede
We haven't seen all that much of Onrush, the new game from the talent behind Motorstorm and DriveClub. Details are beginning to trickle out, however; not too long ago, we learned of the game's release date and pre-order bonuses, and now, we have a brand new, albeit brief, video. At only 20 seconds long, it shows only...
Update: 5th June release date confirmed
The official Twitter account for Onrush, the new arcade racer from Codemasters, has announced that the game is now available to pre-order on the PlayStation Store. In case you're wondering, it's a full-priced title - £54.99 for the standard edition, and £64.99 for the Digital Deluxe edition. Pre-ordering...
MotorStorm and Trackmania mash-up?
The new game from the team behind DriveClub – which was folded into Codemasters, you may recall – is named Onrush and it’s coming to the PlayStation 4 next year. This looks like a kind of MotorStorm and Trackmania mash-up, featuring the toy-ish circuits of the latter and the multi-disciplined arcade racing of...
Pedal to the Vettel
It’s the metagame that makes Formula One such a compelling motorsport: the tactical tension of fuel management, the timing of that pivotal pit-stop, and the never-ending research and development going on behind-the-scenes. F1 2017 offers a taste of these additional activities, and it all helps to raise the stakes when you’re...
How the tiny have fallen
It feels like Codemasters has been testing the water for a potential return of its much loved matchbox racing franchise. A few years ago we had Toybox Turbos on PlayStation 3, which was a Micro Machines game in all but name, and a fairly good one at that. More recently, a Micro Machines mobile game popped up, and...
DiRT Rally was a real breath of fresh air when it released on the PlayStation 4 last year. It was celebrated for its razor sharp focus on the sport, as well as its challenging and fulfilling gameplay. Codemasters stripped away the excess and released a lean, mean, and unashamedly hardcore rally game – and it was great. With DiRT...
Where's Christina Aguilera when you need her?
Oh, this is an unexpected surprise: DiRT 4 is coming to the PlayStation 4 this coming June. The sequel – which aims to blend the hardcore simulation of last year's DiRT Rally with the more accessible aspects of the popular PlayStation 3 titles DiRT 2 and DiRT 3 – aims to push the idea of adrenaline...
Micro Machines: World Series already leaked, but now it's confirmed for a 21st April release – well, in Europe at least. The game will repurpose the legendary miniature racing from classic entries, and will once again see you sprinting through a variety of everyday locations, like the garden, kitchen, and workshop. However, a full...
If you prefer breakfast bars to the Nurburgring then Micro Machines: World Series may be right up your alley. The game – not officially announced but still clearly legit – looks to be coming to the PlayStation 4 later this year, but we're going to drop Codemasters a message just to confirm. Word is that it may be a pumped-up version...
But you'll have to pay for it
This is one of those news stories with both a good and a bad side: DiRT Rally, the critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 simulation racer from Codemasters, is getting PlayStation VR support – but you'll have to pay for it. An update is due in the coming weeks which will open up virtual reality across the entire...
Codemasters is back, and with real assurance. It had seemed for a while that the once racing game experts had fallen off the wagon so to speak, with European rally turning to American X-Games and Formula One lacking the glitz and glamour of its real-life counterpart. Thankfully, the developer seems to be back on track following the...
Racing aficionados may be excited to learn that F1 2016 will restore some of the features absent from last year's iteration when it deploys on the PlayStation 4 this summer. Chief among those is the safety car and career mode, with the latter allowing you to shepherd your own high-octane avatar through a 10 year career to the top. "F1...
DriveClub dev not going down without a fight
Evolution Studios lives on – kind of! The Runcorn-based outfit, shuttered by Sony last month, has been snapped up by Codemasters, and will continue the legacy that it left off – albeit on a multiformat basis moving forwards. It's unclear whether it will retain the studio name – that doesn't appear...
We rally, rally like it
DiRT Rally is a beast – a beautiful, brilliant, and breath-taking beast that will humble you, drive you mad, and leave you grinning like an idiot once you master it's brutally tough driving challenges. Think Bloodborne but with cars and you'll understand the punishing pleasures awaiting those brave enough to strap in and...
Rally great news
After heavy speculation, DiRT Rally will get dirty starting 5th April on the PlayStation 4. The game – which officially launched on the PC, er, today – will presumably include all of the content released thus far, including the new Winter Wonderland update, which adds some snow-based Swedish stages to the mix. For those that...
Codemasters has proven a shadow of its former self on the PlayStation 4 thus far, shipping F1 2015 and not a whole lot else. Fortunately, while the decision seemed strange at the time, DiRT Rally has proven an enormous success in Early Access – and it looks like the simulation could be taking a long easy right all the way to Sony's new-gen...
On the Button, or in the pits?
After some unfortunate delays, Codemasters finally wheels out its debut F1 game for the current generation of consoles. Fans who have stayed with the series in its many iterations on the PlayStation 3 can now at last spin around Silverstone with the teams and drivers of the new season along with their new machines...
"It's something we should be looking to do"
Codemasters, the firm best known for racing games such as GRID, is a bit of a British institution, so it's positively peculiar that it's still yet to release a PlayStation 4 title. The company will be hitting the new-gen starting grid with F1 2015 a little later this year, but the organisation also seems...
How very evil
Well, if you had your hopes firmly set on a traditional Overlord game on PlayStation 4, you're going to be disappointed with what Codemasters has come up with. The franchise, which typically sees players assume the role of a comically evil tyrant who controls hordes of horrible minions, has been on hiatus for some time, but it's being...
Hoon's going to scratch our gymkhana itch now?
Codemasters' extended emphasis on the PlayStation 3 may be starting to catch up with it, as Eurogamer.net reports that layoffs have hit the legendary British outfit. According to the site, around 50 jobs are being reviewed, with approximately 30 to be made redundant as part of a 30 day consultation...
Stuck in the past
One of the hardest things to achieve in a yearly franchise is a hook to keep people coming back. It’s true of not only sports games, but the sports themselves – after all, no one wants to invest time into something that stays the same every year. For Formula 1, the answer has been the biggest shake-up in a generation, with new...
GRID 2 was largely seen as a disappointment by many of the series’ fans – a step in the wrong direction, lacking the focus and discipline that made the original release such a compelling outing for racing enthusiasts. GRID Autosport, the latest offering from British firm Codemasters, aims to redeem the series – and bar a few...
There will be car-nage
Strange spin-off Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will not be the only major release to skip the PlayStation 4 this year, as Codemasters has confirmed that GRID Autosport will also steer away from Sony’s next-gen system. Due out on 27th June – seriously – the new PlayStation 3 title aims to put an emphasis back on...
Pedal to the Vettel
After an exciting first half to the 2012 season, last year’s Formula One World Championship trudged towards an inevitable third title for Sebastian Vettel, continuing his and Red Bull’s dominance of the sport. The 2013 season was, however, supposed to be more competitive; with stable technical regulations, it was said that...
Codemasters set to announce annual update
Sebastian Vettel may be running away with this year's championship, but that’s not stopping Codemasters from readying F1 2013 for release. The title – which will almost certainly launch later this year – is set to be officially unveiled tomorrow, as teased by an image posted on the franchise’s...
Five years in the pit lane
The racing genre is divided between arcade and simulation fans. While other genres have fairly interchangeable skill sets, what works in an arcade racer will send you straight to the hospital in a racing sim; the no holds barred action of Need for Speed caters to the former, while Gran Turismo appeals to the latter. But...
Caught in the slipstream
Codemasters’ stylish racer GRID 2 has secured a second week atop the UK charts, despite a 50 per cent drop in sales. The slick driving experience managed to accelerate beyond FIFA 13 and Remember Me, the latter of which managed a respectable debut in third position. That doesn’t look like a bad performance for the title,...
Legendary Ratchet & Clank developer Insomniac Games has suffered an intolerable introduction to the world of multiplatform games, with its uninspiring third-person shooter Fuse entering the UK sales charts at a dreadful 37th. Ted Price, the head of the Burbank-based studio, recently noted that the company is planning more...
Codemasters blazing trails on current hardware
Social may be the big hook of the PlayStation 4, but Codemasters is delivering on the promise on current generation hardware. This brand new GRID 2 trailer offers a good look at the impending racer’s multiplayer suite, and it includes community-driven features such as video sharing and dynamic...
Ask any racing fan what their favourite gaming experience has been over the past five years, and there’s a good chance that Codemasters’ Race Driver: GRID will rank at the sharp end of their list. Since its release in 2008, GRID has developed something of a cult following, thanks in part to its strong racing heart and fine damage...
Fans of fast cars and chequered flags will be treated to an F1 2012 demo this week, Codemasters has announced. Those that download the taster will be able to sample two of racer’s new modes: Young Driver Test and Season Challenge. The former takes “inspiration” from real-life examinations, and will teach you how to get to grips with...
Codemasters has confirmed what we’d already figured out – that GRID 2 is set to drift onto the PlayStation 3 next year. The hotly anticipated sequel has been in development for two years, and will take advantage of the most recent version of Codemasters’ excellent EGO Engine. The game’s debut trailer – embedded below – includes...
Have you got what it takes?
Identifying that its F1 series can be a bit intense at times, Codemasters has announced a new quick play option for the upcoming F1 2012. Dubbed the Champions Mode, the feature will allow you to jump into a host of individual race scenarios against former champions. Think International Superstar Soccer’s challenge mode...
Wheely good surprise
We’d heard rumours that a sequel to Codemasters’ massively popular GRID series was in development, but we never actually expected it to be announced this morning. Out of nowhere, the British publisher has released a short teaser trailer with the slogan “the race returns”. All will be revealed on 8th August according to...
Over the top
If you don’t know your KERS from your DRS, then Codemasters has announced a brand new racer that just might just tickle your fancy. The brilliantly cartoony F1 Race Stars promises to transform all of your favourite drivers into adorable bobble-heads and pit them against each other on tracks that would be deemed too exciting for the...
Ready to race
Despite launching over four years ago, Codemasters’ Race Driver: GRID remains many gamers’ favourite PlayStation 3 racing game. So it’s exciting to learn that a successor to the title is rumoured to be in development right now. The news comes courtesy of – whisper it – Official Xbox Magazine, which claims that details about...
What does that even mean?
If you’re still not entirely sure what DiRT Showdown actually is, this trailer should set the scene. It’s got loud music, flashing lights and exaggerated American voiceovers. It’s essentially the game Codemasters has been itching to make for the past three years. Totally rad, dude. Cowabunga. Word. You can read our...
Bruised and broken
You’ll be able to quench your thirst for crumpled bonnets today, when Codemasters smashes a demo for the upcoming DiRT Showdown onto the PlayStation Store. The teaser will feature two events, including a solo single-player race and a “devastating” multiplayer demolition derby event. The single-player race will see you...
Hooning is not a crime
Those of you obsessed with bent bumpers and scratched paint work will probably want to pick up a copy of DiRT Showdown when it releases on 25th May in the UK and 29th May in the US. The title steers the traditionally serious rallying series in a more raucous direction, focusing on arcade thrills and vehicle wrecking spills. If...
Given the affection PlayStation fans still have for Destruction Derby, it’s surprising no one’s attempted to recreate the smash-heavy vehicular formula on PS3. It may be late to the party, but DiRT Showdown is exactly that: a game that can’t be pitched without referencing Psygnosis’ 1995 hit, like its inspiration it’s hard to...
Race for life
In order to celebrate this weekend’s Chinese Grand Prix, Codemasters has announced that it is temporarily slashing the price of the Vita version of F1 2011 to an affordable £19.99. The discount is scheduled for this weekend only, so you’ll need to be nimble like a race car to take advantage of the reduction. For more information...
Try and feign some excitement,anything, because Codemasters has announced – wait for it – F1 2012. That’s right, the latest title in the annual Jenson Button simulator will arrive in September on PlayStation 3 (and noticeably not on PS Vita). Codemasters’ timing is impeccable as we’re just a few hours away from the start of the 2012...
Even with Twisted Metal fresh in our memories, we’re really looking forward to DiRT Showdown. While the spin-off racer might not have any weapon pick-ups or explosives, it does have giant dome like arenas – which means there’s plenty of potential for bent metal and knackered paint jobs. Check out this brand new trailer to see what...
Muddy good value
Get ready to don your helmet and clean those mud-flaps, as Codemasters has announced the DiRT 3: Complete Edition is heading to PlayStation 3. The expanded re-release of last year’s off-road favourite bundles £20 worth of bonus content on top of the already bulging main campaign. Expect to take your specced out Ford Fiesta to...
The best track in PSone classic, Destruction Derby, was the figure-eight course named Crossover
The ten-lap race was anchored around a crossover point in the middle which nearly always resulted in spectacular crashes. It seems like that's something Codemasters has been inspired by for its upcoming spin-off racer, DiRT Showdown. The title's first in-game video focuses on the Nevada 8-Ball and,..
Purists, hold onto your hats
Codemasters has announced the latest instalment in its off-road rally series, DiRT Showdown, and it's heading in a different direction to what you might be familiar with. The game's pitched as "an arcade-style spin-off" that takes the extreme-sports elements from DiRT 2, layers on the Gymkhana events from DiRT 3, and stirs in a helping of Destruction Derby..
Remember Dizzy? The egg-shaped platforming mascot of yesteryear? It looks like Codemasters is teasing a comeback
Rumours started circling when Codies PR head Rich Eddy revealed that "Eggmergence Day" is coming. A teaser website named EggcitingNews.com has since been discovered asking "Guess Who's Back?". It accompanies a cryptic...
Start your engines
Racing fans will be well catered-for at the launch of PlayStation Vita: as well as Ridge Racer, Codemasters has announced it'll have F1 2011 ready for release on launch day too. The officially licensed and critically well-received racer lands in Europe on Vita launch day — that's 22nd February 2012, of course — with a new...
Fans of speeding cars and Nicole Scherzinger should start doing backflips right about now -- Codemasters has confirmed that F1 2011 will release alongside the PlayStation Vita in Europe and North America
The game will include many of the features from its big-brother PlayStation 3 alternative, allowing you to live the life of a superstar racer. Minus the glamour model girlfriend, of course..
Who ever thought cars going around a track in slow-motion could be so dramatic? Codemasters obviously, as its the style the British publisher's chosen for its F1 2011 launch trailer
The game's certain to tear up the charts when it launches later this week.
Codemasters has released the first trailer for F1 2011 running on PlayStation Vita
It's pretty much what you'd expect — showing F1 cars racing around a track from first-person. The trailer is keen on pointing out that the game's a work in progress, and it certainly shows. The game, honestly, looks a bit disappointing in the visual department. But Codemasters still has a few months to clean things..
Codemasters has announced its closing down its Guildford studio, the team responsible for Bodycount
The closure will affect 66 employees, who were informed today the news. "As we look to take greater leadership in the racing category, Codemasters is proposing a studio structure that adds resource and strengthens our best-in-class racing teams," the company said in a statement. Those..
Codemasters has released the fourth and final video in Bodycount's "Behind The Bullets" documentary series
The video focuses on Bodycount's competitive and co-0perative online multiplayer, which is built upon the same explosive foundations as the game's single-player campaign. In addition to competitive Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch for up to...
If you've not been keeping up with the F1 this year, Codemasters has got your back
Its latest trailer for the upcoming F1 2011 handily kills two birds with one stone, replaying all the major events from this year's season in addition to showing off a variety of new gameplay features in the upcoming game. Did someone say "safety car"?
In terms of traditional gameplay experiences, we're really excited about the potential for racing games on the PlayStation Vita
With Sony's new handheld packing some serious power, there's no need for any compromise in physics or visuals anymore, and thus we imagine the system will play host to some great racing experiences in the coming years. F1 2011 is one of the first racing games to be..
We're not particularly keen on the over-produced style of these Bodycount developer diaries, but at least the content is rock-solid
With so little information about Codemasters' destructive shooter readily available, it's nice to see the PR machine hit over-drive in anticipation for the game's release later in the month. This latest developer diary focuses on the game's art direction and enemy..
While the PlayStation 3 version of F1 2011 has only just got its first trailer, Codemasters has also revealed some fresh details about the PlayStation Vita version of the game
According to Dealspwn, the handheld racing game will be comparable to the full console release, with full seasons and complete race distances. "It's not a straight port, obviously, because you can't have things like..
Who said racing games can't be epic? Codemasters' debut trailer for F1 2011 is suitably extravagant, depicting some of the sequel's hot new features, such as enhanced racing and improved pit-lane cinematics
The game looks seriously pretty. It's due out September 23rd on PS3. Check out the trailer after the jump.
Codemasters has put up a new trailer for Black, the explosive shooter previously headed up by former Black creator, err, Stuart Black
The outspoken Black may have left Codies some time ago, but the Guildford team has seen out Stuart's explosive vision. "This isnt just another shooter; this is a gun centrefold that gives you amazingly satisfying guns that you will never forget,"..
DiRT 3 currently commands a MetaCritic of 88
That's right up there with L.A. Noire. Codemasters has just sent us a note to remind you all that the game is out today. You should probably do the sensible thing and buy it.</em>
We played DiRT 2 through to completion and then some last year
One thing we always lamented about the game was a serious lack of DLC. We would have happily splashed out on more tracks and cars, but the content never really came. Thankfully, the brilliant DiRT 3 will not fall to the same fate. A bunch of trophy leaks have revealed four new DLC packs...
DiRT 3's pretty hot on this gymkhana malarkey
We still haven't quite got a grip on what the activity entails, but it seems to focus pretty heavily on doing ridiculous things in a rally car. While we'd probably burst into tears at the prospect of driving an expensive car so recklessly in real-life, we can bask in the glory of professional driver Ken Block going crazy in the embedded YouTube video..
Man, if we had a super-expensive rally car and an empty car-park, we'd totally start doing stunts in it too
We're not so sure we'd like to share the action with a friend though. Things look a bit scary when the cars are like millimetres away from colliding. We suppose that's what makes Gymkhana so extreeeeeme. In short: DiRT 3 continues to look proper amazing.
Upcoming rally-racer DiRT 3 is a game after our own heart
It totally knows how to party. Screw nightclubs and supermodels, we're all about rally cars and cardboard robots. DiRT 3 gets what's up, yo. According to Rock Paper Shotgun, DiRT 3 will boast a multiplayer party mode consisting of three unique mini-games. On the agenda is Invasion, where you'll smash up robot shaped cardboard cut-outs in..
We played DiRT 2 for an outrageous amount of time
When we got the platinum trophy, we'd probably put in close to 40 hours with the rally title. To be honest, despite absolutely adoring the previous entry, DiRT 3's been bubbling under our radar a bit. Well it had been. Now Codemasters has released this amazing slow-motion trailer showing off Group B rallying. Hype levels rising... Rising...
MCV's dropped the first details on F1 2011's release date, slapping a September 23rd time-frame on the hotly anticipated racing game sequel
The racer will initially launch on PlayStation 3, but an NGP version is in development too. Presumably that will follow around the system's launch date.</em>
A report on Nintendo-Universe (we know
) suggests that a version of F1 2011 is currently in development for the NGP. The news comes via the official Twitter account for Codemasters Benelux, which cites the NGP version of the game via a retweet from a Dutch journalist. Assuming F1 2011 is due during late Summer on other platforms, the confirmation serves as a good omen for a European launch of..
We loved DiRT 2
The game's combination of simulation and arcade rally racing was perfect, leaving us gagging for more after seriously prolonged sessions behind the wheel. Naturally, we're a little bit hyped for DiRT 3, which has just been given a May 24th worldwide release window. Codemasters reckons that DiRT 3 will have double the track content than its predecessor, with an emphasis on more..
Codemasters' top noggin has added further fuel to the "PSP2 is super powerful" bonfire
Ironically speaking at the 3DS event in Amsterdam last week, Rod Cousens told Eurogamer that rumours about Sony's next handheld are true. It is indeed a bit of beast. In portable areas youre going to have statements, which already out in the press, saying PlayStation Portable 2 is as powerful as the..
The most fun thing about DiRT 2 (aside from its lavish presentation and addictive progression) was the way the cars handled
It wasn't a simulation game, nor it was it an arcade game — it was somewhere in between. That made sliding around corners ridiculously satisfying. Codemasters clearly understands the strength of its drift mechanic, with this DiRT 3 trailer focusing on a "trick..
Codemaster's generally put out super pretty games
Codemaster's DiRT franchise in particular looks pretty great. Is it any real surprise that first shots of DiRT 3 are amazing, then? Not really no. </em>
By all accounts, F1 2010 is rather good
Sensational in fact. It might just fill that racing void until Gran Turismo 5 drops in November. As such, we thought you readers would appreciate this Eurogamer exclusive trailer of the game's night-time events. It includes music which might get your head nodding. The game's out soon.
Codemasters has released some footage from F1 2010
The game's due out at the end of next month. As you'd imagine, it involves fast cars that go "vwoooooooom". It actually looks proper good too. Aswell as showing off some of the driving, this gameplay sizzle shows a cross-section of the campaign extras. In order to get the full experience, you'll have to take part in post-race interviews..
Codemasters has committed to a UK release date of September 24th for F1 2010
The date's revealed at the end of a video for the game over on the Formula One website. The game's being made just up the road from us (sort of). Naturally we feel rather excited about it. Thankfully, it's not just our location that's getting us excited — the game actually looks fantastic. Should be a lovely warm-up for..
Do you know what's better than DiRT 2? DiRT 2 in the rain, or, more efficiently, DiRT 3
That's right valued readers, Codies' new racer will feature brand-new weather effects. This target render of a rainy route shows some of Codemasters' ambition with the new title, while other screens show off snow and dusty tracks. But rain! Look, it's raining! Slippy-slidey.
We can appreciate what the Operation Flashpoint franchise is trying to do -- create a simulator-like recreation of modern combat
We just can't find any fun in the formula. That's fine, because we hate Starcraft too; but plenty of people love it. Y'know, apples and oranges. Whatever. Seeing as it's our job, we're going to tell you about Operation Flashpoint: Red River — the latest entry in..
Codemasters released the first trailer for DiRT 3 over the weekend, and have followed up the reveal with a blow-out in this month's EDGE magazine
In the issue, Codies game designer Matt Horsman describes it as "the biggest rally game ever made". They're not aiming small, then. Critically, the magazine notes that the festival setting of the last game has been removed. Hopefully the..
As promised, Codemasters has released the first trailer for DiRT 3
It doesn't really reveal much about the game, but it does have us totally pumped. The trailer shows a Ford driving through a number of different environments, before drifting beneath an exploding truck. We're hyped as we loved DiRT 2. How about you guys?
That, right there, presented in glistening digital format, is your first look at Codemasters' DIRT 3
We've known that the rally franchise was getting a sequel for some time, but we're about to get a better idea about the game's direction this weekend. The game's set to air its debut trailer on ESPN during the X-Games. No doubt it'll be on YouTube within minutes. Until then, you'll just have to..

Welcome to bizarre-o-world
After months of slagging off various PlayStation shooters, and tipping the upcoming Bodycount as the next big-thing, Codemasters has confirmed that Stuart Black - the dude behind the PS2 shooter Black - will be leaving the company in October. Bodycount, which was seen by many as a spiritual successor to Black, will not release until early next year. "Having created a..
We're not really sure why Codemasters have decided to show Bodycount so early
When you have to put a little disclaimer at the bottom of your footage, something is clearly wrong. From what the trailer shows, the concept for Bodycount look pretty solid — you shoot things and they blow up. But the feedback from the weapons looks all kinda wrong. Yes, it's early. But then, why show it? Hopefully..
The producer of F1 2010, Paul Jeal, has revealed the very first tid-bits of information regarding the online component of the upcoming racer
Jeal confirmed that there will be three gameplay types for the racer, including Quick Race (a three lap slice of action), Endurance Race (a longer, eight lap race with mandatory pit-stops) and Custom Race (where players can set certain criteria and go). Jeal..
Codemasters has released a video which contains some footage from their upcoming F1 2010 game
The video features a number of key dudes from the game's development talking about the game and cars and stuff. It's also got that famous "niaaaaaaaaooooow" sound a lot. Looks like Codies have nailed it.
Codemaster's VP Gavin Cheshire has had a right rant at the PSP and its younger sibling the PSPgo in the latest issue of EDGE magazine

From the..

OXM UK's revealed that the top-secret shooter Codemasters shooter from Black developer Stuart Black is
