It is already being used in the new Formula 1 game under development from Codemasters.

Codemasters Chief Designer Stephen Hood revealed this information in an interview with the leading gaming site IGN. The interview was really about a new weather system that’s beeing adapted into the new F1 2010 game that is scheduled for release in September this year.

But Stephen Hoods also hints that the new weather system will be part of the new DiRT 3 game.

IGN: And will this new weather system be making its way into future Codemasters’ games?

Stephen Hood: One of the added benefits is that the weather system we’ve developed will now become part of the EGO engine so it can feed into all of our future projects such as DiRT 3.

You can see for yourself how this new system will effect the gaming experience in this video:
