EA Sports and Codemasters have published a brand new two-minute video trailer showcasing the new and updated features that will be part of the upcoming F1 22 official FIA Formula One World Championship game.
The redefined race weekend adds excitement and drama the moment the drivers hit the track for the 2022 FIA Formula One World Championship™. Taking control of the revolutionary cars with improved physics to accommodate the new aero rules, players can now experience the F1® Sprint and immersive race day moments such as formation laps, safety car moments, and pit stops. The Pirelli Hot Lap with eight supercars adds a new dimension before the action heats up across this season’s circuits, including updates to Spain, Australia, and Abu Dhabi and the Formula 1 MIAMI GRAND PRIX.
F1 22 allows players to live their Formula 1 fantasies both on and off the track, said Lee Mather, F1® Senior Creative Director at Codemasters. Players are excited to enter the new era of Formula 1 with the introduction of new cars, regulations, and more control of race day moments. F1 22 enables players to be more social with their friends away from the circuit. The personalised space within F1 Life allows players to show off their collection of must-have cars and accessories and be the envy of friends and rivals.
To assist new players, F1® 22 features Adaptive AI, tailoring the experience to their current skill level, enabling competitive racing from the moment they hit the track. With the addition of accessible handling, players can remove the complexities and have the option to increase the difficulty at the end of every race weekend. The improved Practice Programs encourage players to learn the circuit thanks to enhanced on-track visuals, helping to improve lap times ahead of battling for a place on the podium.
F1® Life is the new social hub that allows players to show off their collection of supercars, fashion accessories, and trophies. In-game character personalization extends beyond the track with branded clothes and accessories players can collect through in-game challenges, Podium Pass, brand shop, and the in-game store. Upon entering the game, players begin at their personal hub, which acts as the Multiplayer lobby, allowing access to friends’ avatars and collections.
F1® 22 Champions Edition players also receive new My Team Icons, Jacques Villeneuve, Mark Webber, and Nico Hülkenberg, and two drivable safety cars: the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series and Aston Martin Vantage for use in Time Trial. With improved UI for easier navigation and updated authentic broadcast visuals, including podium sequences and driver video walls, there has never been a better time to take to the grid.
Alongside all the new innovations, including VR for PC players, F1® 22 expands its features for players with the return of My Team, now with three starting points, the acclaimed 10-year Career with two-player functionality, and Multiplayer including offline split-screen.
The latest edition of the official F1 game franchise, now named F1 22 will be released worldwide on July 1 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via the EA App, Origin, Steam, and Epic Store.
Players who pre-ordered the Deluxe Champions Edition will have access three days earlier, on June 28.
