Codemasters has announced that registration for F1 Online: The Game’s closed beta is now open. To register for a chance to enter the beta, go here.
F1 Online is described as a “free-to-play racing and management game” where players will be able to create and manage their own F1 team, as well as be the driver and take part in race events, such as Grand Prix races & Time Trials.
“Players will have the opportunity to create their own racing team and become immersed in a world of FORMULA ONE™ on a grand scale; choosing their team name, designing a livery and leading the development of a personal franchise. As racer and team boss, they will manage the commercial, research, production and race crew functions required for success on track”
Those who successfully get into the beta will have a chance to unlock items for when the game goes live, which should be sometime in Q1 2012. The trailer for F1 Online: The Game and some screenshots can be viewed below.
