Codemasters has just formally unveiled F1 2010 for PS3, 360 and Games for Windows, along with a September release date.

The game is the first HD Formula One game to appear since F1: Championship Edition for PS3 back in 2007.

It’ll be built around the upcoming 2010 season that kicks off in Bahrain this weekend, including the all new South Korean GP and the return of seven time world-champion, Mercedes driver Michael Schumacher.

As well as that, it’ll have all the driver changes to other teams from last season, like Ferrari new boy Fernando Alonso and the back-to-back world championship winning duo at McLaren, Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.

The first screenshots were also released of the game as well, which you can find below with the PR.
