Game News F1 22: F1 Life, Miami, sprint races… New features to come for EA Sports’ Formula 1 simulation

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

Preview Terms

We were invited to discover the first details of 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. We then received a PC code to test a preview version with Grand Prix and Time Trial modes and the circuits of Imola, Austria, Silverstone, Texas and Miami’s new course.

Monegasque or American accent for F1 22?

While the 2021 season offered us a spectacle and an epic finish, crowning Dutchman Max Verstappen ahead of historic champion Lewis Hamilton, most observers saw a remake of the fight between Mercedes and Red Bull. This was without counting the worries of the silver arrows of Mercedes and the two missed Grand Prix of Verstappen. Charles Leclerc and Ferrari took the opportunity to take the best two races out of five, the last having taken place this weekend with the victory of the outgoing champion in Miami. A new American circuit, obviously present in the future game.

To note that Sprint races will be present in the software. Available in Imola, Austria and Brazil, they 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 set by a classic qualifying session. A nice alternative, available in Career or MyTeam mode. Accustomed to the comments of Canal +, also know that Jacques Villeneuve will be presentt in the game this year, as well as Jean-Eric Vergne (no details on their role). Marc Priestley, the former McLaren engineer will voice the engineer in the English version.

“F1 22, F1 for everyone”

Now under the fold of EA Sports, and aware that new F1 fans are appearing (notably under the impetus of the Netflix series Drive to Survive), Lee Mather confided that the next episode of the saga will be very accessible F1 22 is a welcoming game designed for anyone who wants to follow and get involved in the world of F1. Word therefore to immersion at first, the design of the single-seaters will be redesigned and the rendering of the flywheels revised to match the movements of reality. The level of the teams will be 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 difficulties (a feature called “Adaptive AI”), and the cutscenes returned to be more immersive. A data that we can fully judge at the exit.

Main modes, Career and MyTeam mode were covered during the presentation. No revolution, just small confirmations and adjustments to be expected with 3 levels of difficulty, a department 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 having confirmed that a mode of this type is renewed every two years.

Undoubtedly the most important for regulars of the saga, the gameplay. This was refined on several points during the race days, with several additions expected. The formation lap is tweaked before the start of a race, a warm-up lap where the single-seaters 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 power of your team in this area and a good position of your car when you stop in the pit. A point that you can improve in career mode in order to win, or lose less time in the race.

In the other additions or improvements, Lee Mather announces that the Safety Car, a car which regulates the speed of the race by putting itself in front of the first single-seater 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 (the player’s movement map after the session, for example). Finally who says F1 for all, says VR. PC gamers will be able to play F1 22 with a VR headset to drive single-seaters with the cockpit view.

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 terms of single-seater liveries, Supercars (see below), their apartment and their fully customizable player appearance. It is also the multiplayer lobby, which will certainly have more cachet and soul than in previous games. Supercars are now appearing in an F1 game to overshadow the single-seaters. The latter, Ferrari, Mercedes, Aston Martin or McLaren cars will be playable in Career events (Pirelli Hot Lap), but also in other challenges and time trials. Another step to be more accessible, and a first to compete with behemoths like Gran Turismo or Forza?
