    There has been no specific mention of the drifting mode... I hope this is still in

    Yes, it's in. Pretty tricky at present but the 'drift closer to the bollard for a bigger multiplier' mechanic is a nice touch. Took me several attempts to nail a first place on that one!

    No destruction derby? Well that's a downer-WAIT, SQUIRRELS? :D Anyway, the idea about splitting reckless drivers from the rest sounds nice, but I can see that not working out properly. How does the game tell the shunter from the shunted? Penalties never seem to get given out effectively.

    I don't doubt their system will be able to separate people regularly involved in collisions from those not. It'd be nice to know the "rules" that codemasters goes by in identifying those driving poorly and how they avoid penalising those who are just racing a little aggressively. I'd like to know if things like the relative speed of the collision or the force or the frequency of collisions has anything to do with penalties, just so that if I were being punished I could understand exactly what I did wrong to avoid it in the future and improve my racing, instead of being chucked in with the rabble with no idea why. Depending on how the system works it might be hard to get out of the more aggressive races because you keep getting involved in collisions.

    Also, there will be no cockpit view. At all.

    Cockpit - what Lewis Hamilton calls his girlfriend.

    Odds on Destruction Derby mode being brought in as DLC?
  • GR_JustinTowell - May 1, 2013 8:35 a.m.

    Now there's a thought! I'm not sure - the rest of the game feels relatively serious, but then so did GRID and that suddenly chucked you into a figure-8 track with ramps on the crossover! Basically, they would sell a lot of that DLC so I'm sure they'll be considering it :)

    I guess if there is enough demand they will make it. Might have to smash other players in online races and encourage others to join in the smashy fun to make Codemasters take notice. *fingers crossed* By the way, was there any preview of the PS3 version and how it compares to other versions?
  • GR_JustinTowell - May 1, 2013 9:27 a.m.

    There's no need to encourage people to get smash-happy online :P As for PS3, the preview events have only shown the PC version (at reveal) and then 360 subsequently. However, I asked them about the difference between the two versions a while back and they said the two machines each had their strengths and weaknesses but that they were happy they were achieving the desired results on both consoles. F1 2012 was way better than 2011 on PS3 and as-near-as-dammit to the 360 version so that bodes well.

    Oh, cool. Thanks.
