F1 2011 revving up Sept. 20

Codemasters' sequel hitting the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC this fall; UK release set for September 23; 3DS and NGP versions announced, not dated.


Just last week, Codemasters' racing game F1 2010 took home the British Academy of Film and Television Arts' top award for a sports game, beating out juggernauts FIFA 11 and Gran Turismo 5. Now, the developer--on the heels of the strong debut of the original--has announced and dated the next game in the series.

F1 2011 will arrive in North America for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on September 20. In the UK, the game will ship on September 23.

Additionally, Codemasters sent word that versions of the game for Nintendo's 3DS and Sony's Next Generation Portable (NGP) are in development and will sport features unique to the systems.

Like its predecessor, F1 2011 will include every circuit, team, and driver from the forthcoming 2011 FIA Formula One Championship, including Sebastian Vettel, current World Champion.

Additionally, F1 2011 will premiere the 2011 Formula One Grand Prix of India, raced at Delhi's Jaypee International Race Circuit, as well as the German track Nurburgring.
