UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif.– Dec. 11, 2009– FORMULA ONE™ fans will soon be able to experience the exhilaration of FORMULA ONE™ on the iPhone and iPod Touch as Codemasters brings F1 2009 to the mobile platform. Players will be able to step into the racing boots of their heroes such as 2009 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONS™ Jenson Button, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.
Coming soon to the Apple App Store, F1 2009 features all 10 teams, 20 drivers and 17 circuits from the thrilling 2009 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™. F1 2009 offers stunning visuals and a totally authentic FORMULA ONE experience on the iPhone and iPod. Players will be able to tackle the stunning Eau Rouge at Spa Francorchamps, master the unique challenge set by Becketts at Silverstone and experience the claustrophobic streets of Monaco where one mistake can end with a crash. F1 2009 also features the iconic Singapore night race and the beautiful Yas Marina circuit in the United Arab Emirates.
F1 2009 on the iPhone and iPod pits the player against the clock and supports two different game modes: Time Trial and Endurance. Time Trial is all about setting the ultimate flying lap at a circuit of the player’s choice while playing as one’s favorite driver. Endurance is a challenge of both speed and consistency as players tackle either six, nine or 12 laps looking to set the best average lap time. Players’ flying lap or average lap times can then be uploaded to the global AGON Online Social Platform Leaderboard to see where they rank amongst the world’s best.
F1 2009 is also available to buy now on the Nintendo Wii™ and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable).
