It’s been the big comeback for F1 for 1 month and fans were able to discover the new circuit in Miami this weekend. Among the news, these will be served today with the latest information on the official simulation of Codemasters and EA Sports, F1 22. Between the new animations, F1 Life or Supercars, an overview of the title scheduled for July 1st.

Conditions for preview

We were invited to discover the first details of the F1 22 through a presentation video conference and a question-and-answer session. Lee Mather, Creative Director of Codemasters, hosted the hour-long session, supported by Social Manager James Bralant. Then we received a PC code to test a preview version with Grand Prix and Time Trial modes and circuits in Imola, Austria, Silverstone, Texas and Miami’s new track.

Monegasque or American accent for F1 22?

While the 2021 season featured a play and an epic ending that crowned Dutchman Max Verstappen in front of historic champion Lewis Hamilton, most observers saw a remake of the match between Mercedes and Red Bull. This was without counting the worries about the silver arrows from Mercedes and the two missed Grand Prix by Verstappen. Charles Leclerc and Ferrari took the opportunity to take the best two races out of five, with the last one taking place this weekend with the victory for the outgoing champion in Miami. A new American circuit, obviously present in the future game.

To notice it Sprint races will be present in the software. They are available in Imola, Austria and Brazil and are used to define the order of the starting grid. A sprint race takes place over a limited period of time and its starting order is determined by a classic qualifying session. A great alternative, available in career or MyTeam mode. Used to the comments from Canal +, know that too Jacques Villeneuve will be presentten played this year, as well as Jean-Eric Vergne (no details on their role). Marc Priestley, the former McLaren engineer, will vote the engineer in the English version.

“F1 22, F1 for everyone”

Now under the EA Sports fold and aware that new F1 fans are popping up (especially during the launch of the Netflix series Drive to Survive), Lee Mather trusted that the next episode of the saga will be very accessible F1 22 is an inviting game designed for anyone who wants to follow and get involved in the F1 world. Word therefore for contemplation first, the design of the single seats will be redesigned and the rendering of the flywheels revised to match the movements of reality. The level of the teams is homogenized so that the winners of the races are not always from Ferrari, Mercedes or Red Bull. In this spirit, the artificial intelligence of the opponents has been redesigned to better match the different types of difficulty (a feature called “Adaptive AI”), and the intermediate sequences returned to be more immersive. A data that we can fully judge at the end.

Main modes, career and MyTeam mode were covered during the presentation. No revolution, only small confirmations and adjustments that can be expected with 3 degrees of difficulty, a section called “event” devoted to your choices to participate in interviews, challenges, technical choices as a driver or team leader, or new features not yet explained in the rivalry system. As for the story mode similar to “Breaking Point” from last season, F1 22 will skip this seasonLee Mather has confirmed that a condition of this type is renewed every two years.

Without a doubt the most important thing for the saga’s regulars, the gameplay. This was refined at several points during the race days, with more additions expected. The formation round is adjusted before the start of a race, a warm-up round where the individual seats do not overtake and take their place on the starting grid. You can then position your vehicle defensively or offensively. Pit stops have also been revised, first recaptured to be more realistic, but will also depend on the strength of your team in this area and a good position of your car when stopping in the pit. A point that you can improve in career mode to win or lose less time in the race.

In the other additions or improvements, Lee Mather announces that the Safety Car, a car that regulates the speed of the race by standing in front of the first single seats in the event of a yellow flag and an accident, has been improved in the presentation of its arrival on the track. . The training program available during the trials has also been expanded with new features (eg post-session movement cards of the player). Finally who says F1 for everyone, says VR. PC gamers will be able to play F1 22 with a VR headset to drive single seats overlooking the cockpit.

F1 life

But the biggest content novelty is called F1 Life and announced at the end of the presentation. Marked with the EA Sports paw, this is the Hub where players will share their trophies, their creations in the form of single-seater liveries, Supercars (see below), their apartment and their fully customizable player looks. It’s also the multiplayer lobby that definitely wants more cachet and soul than in previous games. Supercars are now popping up in an F1 game to overshadow the single seats. The latter, Ferrari, Mercedes, Aston Martin or McLaren cars will be able to be played in career events (Pirelli Hot Lap), but also in other challenges and time trials. One more step to become more accessible, and the first to compete with giants like Gran Turismo or Forza?
