Excitement is building among sim racers worldwide as Codemasters prepares to launch the latest instalment of their annual F1 series, F1 23. With a teaser image already causing a stir on social media, it looks like the wait for this highly anticipated racing game is almost over.
Fresh Start on the Horizon
EA Sports recently shared a sneak peek of F1 23 on social media ahead of the opening Bahrain Grand Prix. The teaser image of a bare carbon-fibre 2023 F1 car, accompanied by the caption “New season, fresh start,” hints at a complete overhaul for the series. Fans eagerly anticipate what radical changes Codemasters has in store for this latest instalment.
Game Engine Overhaul
Introduced in F1 22, F1 Life mode was a divisive addition to the series, with its driveable supercars, customizable player spaces, and microtransactions for clothing items. For F1 23, however, Codemasters promises an even more exciting experience, with hints of a complete graphics and physics engine overhaul. Fans can’t wait to see what’s in store.
Breaking Point Returns
One of the most exciting developments for F1 23 is the return of Breaking Point, which is expected to be a headline feature of the game. Fans are eagerly anticipating whether the story of Aiden Jackson will continue or if new characters will be introduced.
Two New Tracks on the Horizon
F1 23 represents the 2023 F1 season and will therefore feature the Losail International Circuit and the Las Vegas Street Circuit. Fans can expect these tracks to be faithfully replicated in the game, but whether they will be available on day one or added post-launch remains to be seen.
Release Date Still Unknown
There’s no official word yet on when F1 23 will hit the shelves. While F1 22 was released in July, the teaser suggests F1 23 could be available even earlier, possibly in June. Fans are eagerly awaiting the official reveal to get a confirmed release date.
The F1 sim racing community is buzzing with excitement as they await the release of F1 23. With a fresh start on the horizon, an overhauled F1 Life mode, the return of Breaking Point, and two new tracks, this latest instalment promises to be one of the most exciting in the series yet. Stay tuned for more information as the release date approaches.
