Codemasters and parent company EA Sports have revealed that the next edition of the popular Formula 1 game for Playstation, Xbox, and PC will be released on July 1st.
In F1 2022, a new generation of F1 vehicles, sprint races, the Miami Grand Prix track, and a “redefined race day” experience will be introduced.
Players can now customise their setup with new ‘Immersive’ and ‘Broadcast’ settings that alter formation laps, safety car periods, and pit stops on the redesigned race day.
Select Immersive, and participants will be faced with risk-reward tasks that could determine whether they finish on the podium or outside the points. With controlled and accurate cinematics that keep players near to the action, Broadcast takes the strain off.
F1 2022 incorporates new PC VR functionality via Oculus Rift and HTC Vive for the most immersive experience.
“We look forward to welcoming our players to the new era of Formula 1,” said Lee Mather, F1 Senior Creative Director at Codemasters.
“Alongside the real-world changes, we have updated the physics to accommodate the new aero rules and re-worked the tyre model, making the handling more true to life.”
“With new and updated circuits, Adaptive AI, F1 Life, and expanded gameplay options, there has never been a better time for players to take their seats and live the life of an F1 driver,” he added.
My Team, which allows players to set their starting budget based on three entry points: Newcomer, Challenger, and Front Runner, has also been improved in F1 22. Real-life track upgrades to Australia, Spain, and Abu Dhabi have been added to the game to reflect recent alterations.
F1 22 now includes the critically acclaimed 10-year Career mode, which now includes a two-player option, as well as Multiplayer for epic races versus the rest of the world.
