Along with a snappy trailer, Electronic Arts and Codemasters now have F1 23 announced for PS5 and Xbox Series X. Release is June 16 and the full info drone has the accompanying press release:
With the return of story mode, so is Braking Point F1 23 home to all teams, drivers and tracks for the 2023 season, including the Las Vegas Grand Prix and the Losail International Circuit in Qatar. Building on the new partnership with Max Verstappen, who now wears EA SPORTS branding on the chin of his helmet, the twotime world champion is the cover star for the digital exclusive F1 23 Champions edition confirmed.
“The return of Braking Point allows us to dive into a racing story that offers a unique take on Formula 1 alongside the authentic racing features our players know and love,” said Lee Mather, Senior Creative Director at Codemasters. “Working closely with the teams has allowed us to finetune the control model and make pad play even more realistic, and the implementation of a new color coding system used in film and television provides an even more realistic experience.”
Braking Point returns with a new chapter, following the careers of young upstart Aiden Jackson and protagonist Devon Butler, who are now teammates of the Konnersport Racing Team, a fledgling organization hoping to beat current F1 teams and drivers. With a host of new characters, new rivalries and racing challenges, both aim to take their careers to the next level, but there are twists and pitfalls along the way.
The driving behavior of F1 23 has been improved from last season and provides more predictable behavior. The new vehicle physics gives the cars more grip when braking, accelerating and cornering. By incorporating feedback from the F1 team, a better balance between aerodynamics and tire grip is achieved, resulting in a more realistic driving experience. Improvements in engine torque and inertia also mean that throttle control is more authentic and provides a better connection to the car. In addition to these improvements, the controller technology “Precision Drive” gives the pad players more control and safety in the decisive race moments.
Based on community feedback, the 35% race distance makes its debut and offers the perfect compromise between the previous short and long race options. In addition, red flags add a new level of strategy, and the ability to react quickly can change the outcome of a race for better or worse. In addition to the full 2023 season calendar, which has been expanded to include Las Vegas and Losail, the game also includes three old circuits: Paul Ricard (France), Shanghai (China) and Portimão (Portugal) have been confirmed for launch.
The launch of the F1 World hub offers a new experience with content inspired by the realworld calendar. F1 World introduces players to the complex world of Formula 1 and brings together multiple game modes, including Time Trial and Grand Prix, offering a new way to play the game. A new progression system allows players to level up by completing challenges to unlock car upgrades, new liveries, racing suits and helmets. A new safety rating system bridges online and offline play and encourages drivers to race cleanly. This system also helps link likeminded people more efficiently to improve online races.
The digital exclusive F1 23 Champions Edition includes Las Vegas Limited Time Content*, Max Verstappen Race Wear Pack, Braking Point 2 Icons and Vanity Item Pack, Dual Entitlement**, four new My Team Icons, an XP Boost, F1 World Bumper Pack, 18,000 PitCoin and three days of early access starting June 13. A physical and digital Standard Edition featuring EA SPORTS Ambassador Charles Leclerc alongside Lewis Hamilton and Lando Norris will be available for preorder from June 16, along with the F1 World Starter Pack and 5,000 PitCoin.
