After a rather safe entry in the franchise last year, Codemasters’ F1 23 promises several changes to go with some new features. It sees the return of Braking Point, the cinematic story mode from F1 2021, and adds new characters and mechanics.
Fans can also look forward to updated cars, two new Circuits, the return of Red Flags after years and the addition of 35% Race Distance for shorter sessions. Even F1 Life, which felt like a throwaway last year, is back as F1 World, properly guiding players through various modes while offering different challenges.
F1 23 releases on June 16th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC, retailing for $70. Here’s what you should know before picking it up.
