F1 2022, developed by Codemasters, is just under 1 month away from its release and the anticipation for the game’s arrival is high.
In order to anticipate part of these expectations, a little more was revealed about the “new” gameplay of F1 2022.
It's already on the 1st of July that the new game in the F1 series by Electronic Arts comes out and is in development by the inevitable Codemasters.
F1 2022 (see here or here) proves to be a project full of ambition, and now it has received a new statement from Codemasters and Electronic Arts, revealing a trailer that demonstrates the new features of the game.
F1 2022 is generating strong expectations and the countdown has begun. Don't forget that the game is scheduled to hit the market on July 1st for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
"F1 22 allows players to live out their Formula 1 fantasies on and off the track", said Lee Mather, Senior Creative Director, F1 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 times. F1 22 allows players to be more social with friends away from the circuit. The custom space within F1 Life allows players to showcase their collection of must-see cars and accessories and be the envy of friends and rivals."
Among the novelties that are expected, one can anticipate the inclusion of, as we had the opportunity to see here, the Miami Grand Prix. The rookie North American track that was purpose-built for the competition, will be present in F1 2022 being one of the great news that players will want to explore, certainly.
There has also been an improvement in the aerodynamics of the cars, to accommodate the new aero rules, and Codemasters revealed that the suspension system has also been fine-tuned. In addition, the behavior of the wheels against the ground, weather conditions and driving style have also been revised. It's about the game trying to keep up with the evolution of real-life tire technology.
Players will be able to experience the F1 Sprint and immersive race day moments such as formation laps, safety car moments and pit stops. On the other hand, the Pirelli Hot Lap with eight supercars adds a new dimension before the action heats up on circuits this season.
Also noteworthy is the AI Adaptive system that F1 2022 implements and that will help players get into the shoes of their virtual drivers. This system adapts the game experience to the player's skill level, creating competitive races compatible with their skill. On the other hand, Practice Programs have been improved, encouraging players to get to know the circuits better and learn to master them.
F1 Life is the new social hub that allows players to showcase their collection of supercars, accessories, gear and trophies. In-game character customization extends beyond the track with branded clothing and accessories that players can collect through in-game challenges, Podium Pass, Brand Shop and Play Store. Upon entering the game, players start at their personal hub, which doubles as the multiplayer lobby, allowing access to their friends' avatars and collections.
F1 2022 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 the Aston Martin Vantage for use in the Time Trial.
Thanks to the Immersive and Broadcast modes on race day, players will be able to have a rawer or more cinematic experience of the race, pleasing both players who want all the detail and effort associated, or players who prefer a more cinematic experience.
Returning in F1 2022, there will also be Career Mode with the possibility of creating our reign in Formula 1, over 10 years, with two-player functionality.
Also noteworthy is the inclusion of VR for PC players and multiplayer including offline split-screen.
