F1 22 is almost upon us and as Formula 1 fans – in the real world – prepeare for the inaugural Miami Grand Prix this weekend, we get to watch 10 beautiful minutes of the Miami track in the upcoming F1 22.
F1 22 is the first title under the EA Sports banner since developer Codemaster was acquired by EA and is embracing the spirit of firsts with the new Miami course as well. Thanks to VGC we now also get to see what the new Miami track has in store for Formuala 1 fans ahead of the race on Sunday.
The footage was recorded using an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 at 1080p with High settings using an early preview code provided. It is important to state as well that the title is still two months from final launch and so the quality is indicative of the final build that we will see on launch day.
F1 22 promises to bring Formula 1 fans closer to the action than ever before and while the F1 titles before have always done a marvelous job at doing just that, the introduction of the Miami course is sure to shake things up – both in-game and real life.
EA has also stated that there will be new Immersive and Broadcast options that will affect formation laps, safety car periods, and pit stops. EA and Codemasters have also talked about what we can expect from the upcoming racing title, including current season hybrid cars, the 2022 FIA Formula One World Championship, as well as real-life changes to the Australian, Abu Dhabi, and Spanish tracks.
Lee Mather who is the senior creative director for Codemasters also noted that “alongside the real-world changes, we have updated the physics to accommodate the new aero rules and re-worked the tyre model, making the handling more true to life”. Further are the more accessible menus designed to “get to the action quickly without the need to understand the complexities of the sport”.
The PC version of F1 22 will also support VR capabilities with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
