EA’s F1 racing series will return in July with the launch of F1 2022, which will include new hybrid cars, revised rules and F1 Life, a customizable hub that will allow players to showcase their cars, apparel, accessories and other racing gear. .
F1 2021 The excellent Career Mode is back with “new features” – more phone calls from your mother, perhaps – along with the My Team mode, which allows players to start and manage their own F1 team as a newcomer, challenger or leader. According to EA and Codemasters, casual drivers can take advantage of F1 22’s new “adaptive AI” and accessible controls and menus to stay competitive (reasonably, anyway) behind the wheel right away, while more experienced gamers who want something closer to the real deal can tweak the settings for a more technically demanding experience.
The new Broadcast and Immersive modes are said to further extend the “fun versus technical” aspect of the game, allowing players to opt for more realistic or cinematic modes for formation laps, safety car periods and pit stops. Multiplayer racing will be supported via two-player split-screen and online racing, while VR driving will be available on the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets.
“Along with real-world changes, we’ve updated the physics to accommodate the new aerodynamic rules and reworked the tire model, making handling more realistic,” said Codemasters Senior Creative Director Lee Mathers. “With new and updated circuits, adaptive AI, F1 Life and expanded gameplay options, there has never been a better time for gamers to sit back and live the life of an F1 driver.”
