The upcoming console and PC game F1 2010 looks to raise the bar in environmental dynamics, as this work-in-progress promo video describes. Any video game driving simulator will be judged by how realistic the interaction with the environment is. Some games do provide changes in the game’s algorithms to account for the differences in traction a wet track affords, but it looks like F1 2010 will take that to a whole new level.
Now, when it’s too wet to race in real life, you can still get your rain tire groove on in the virtual world. Just remember a finger squeegee to keep your mask clear.
