Charles Leclerc, Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen and a host of other stars feature on the F1 2022 cover

Codemasters and EA Sports have revealed the official covers for the F1 2022 game and it can’t get any better! The standard edition cover features Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc, McLaren’s Lando Norris, and Mercedes’ George Russell. The champions edition cover features Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen, Fernando Alonso, and Sebastian Vettel. The game is set to be officially launched on July 1.

The new edition of the game comes with several modifications. It includes the new Miami circuit besides layout changes to the likes of Australia and Abu Dhabi, F1 Sprint events, and the new era of Formula 1 cars with overhauled rules. It will also include PC VR functionality via Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

Players have a chance to step further into the glamourous world of F1 with ‘F1 Life’ – a customizable hub to show off supercars, clothing, and accessories earned via gameplay, Podium Pass, and the in-game store.

F1 2022 is now available to pre-order

Users can now pre-order the game a month before it’s officially released. By pre-ordering the Champions Edition before May 16, players will get three days of early access and a time-limited Miami-inspired content pack. Codemasters has a history of launching new games in July but it’s generally the second week of July. The early release this time on July 1 comes as a pleasant surprise for the players.

Pre-orders also bring exciting bonus packs. This edition of the F1 official game sees the return of ‘My Team’ and ‘Career Mode’ with slight modifications. In the ‘My Team’ section of the game, players are now given a choice of starting budget and three entry scenarios. The 10-year career mode also returns as does the two-player career option and the epic online multiplayer mode.

We certainly can’t wait to get our hands on the new edition!
