Codemasters’ F1 2022 is slated for release in a couple of days, on 28 June 2022. Aside from being able to experience the new Miami Circuit in the series for the first time, there are also various new tidbits and features that the series will feature for the first time. The game was hotly anticipated because of the regulation changes for this season, and fans will be excited to learn how the cars feel, virtually.
For the first time in the series, the game will feature its own customized soundtrack like EA’s football ‘FIFA’ series does, and it features songs from artists such as Alesso, Marshmello, Charli XCX, Deadmau5, Diplo and Kavinsky. There are 29 songs in total.
If you’re on a PC, you will also be able to use a VR (Virtual Reality) headset to put yourself in the cockpit, which is also a first for the series. If you possess a VR headset and have a powerful enough PC, this will definitely be a feeling you would be chasing. With the new regulations – the tire model has been completed revamped, and will now handle differently. Post-launch, the game will also add cross-platform multiplayer.
