we got to test the brand new Miami track!

We were able to test the Miami circuit on the latest F1 22 as a preview. Here are our impressions of the new Formula 1 game!

This week, nearly 2 months before the game’s official release, the editors ofAutoPlus.fr could see a demo version of the brand new title of Code masters. It is about F1 22!

Like every year, all players who are fans of formula 1 impatiently waiting for the new title developed by the British studio, bought last year by Electronic art. And, the first small change, the game publisher has the numbering slightly shortened to match the names of other EA sports simulations, such as: FIFA 21 for example.

Formalized on April 22, the new game F1 22 will therefore come true July 1, 2022 on many media: computerPS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox One† And this year, PC players can even enjoy an immersion in VR!

The F1 game takes over the novelties of the 2022 season

With all the changes made for this new Formula 1 season 2022, he had even more work this year for the developers of the Codemasters teams. Among them, of course, we find all the work on the new single seaters of their respective stables, the design of which has been thoroughly revised, following the entry into force of the new regulations reintroducing the ground effect.

Only two modes are available for this demo. We find the mode championship classic and finally a size against the watch. The first just allows ride in one of 10 single-seaters and put yourself in the shoes of an F1 team driver. Only that…

And given the visual and sound immersion, it’s almost like!

Head to Florida with the Miami Circuit in the spotlight!

Aboard our single seater Ferrari F1-75all dressed in matte red, we’re in the skin of Charles Leclerc. And we’re not just standing on a starting grid… This is the very last F1 circuit, that of Miami

From the cockpit we look first to the right and then to the left. Ahead of us, the lights begin to line up and the motors run at optimum speed. Then the last Led turns green and the 10 single-seaters go into a delicious roar on the asphalt.

After several laps and a fierce battle (with certain aids and driver assistance activated) we manage to climb to first place with a long straight and the DRS activated. On the wire we manage to overtake Verstappen, who was the race leader. Victory!

As you will understand, the new Miami circuit will therefore be honored in this new opus of the EA Sports game. The new layout, which revolves around the stadium of the Dolphins, the American football team, will be widely promoted as it will serve as a framework for the skill test players.

And of course it is no coincidence that this Miami International Autodrome will be presented to the specialized press this week via a demo of the next flagship game of Formula 1. Indeed, on the latter it says takes place on Sunday 8 May the next Formula 1 Grand Prix!

As a reminder, this new 5.412 km route has 19 turns and three DRS zones. The full race is 57 laps for a total of 308,326 km.

High-quality graphics for total immersion

The game works perfectly on the tested demo version. Small disappointment though, the ? Miami track is tested in cloudy weather. A bit of a shame when you imagine driving under the Florida sun, with the palm trees artificially planted near the tracks and reproduced for the needs of the game.

Once on track, everything is very smooth. There are no noticeable delays or delays. The developers of Codemasters, who graphics engine house for several years, have optimized their game to maximize performance. Based on the company’s internal graphics engine (called EGO), the game runs only via DirectX 12 for the PC versions since the previous version.

On our setup (GTX 1080, i7 7700k and 16GB RAM) the game runs like clockwork and rarely drops below 120 fps with all options automatically set to “ultra high”. Our machine, which is almost 5 years old, has no trouble running the new EA Sports opus.

As mentioned before, single-seaters are: extremely well modeled† The F1 fans will be pleased to see every detail on the bodywork is there and nothing is missing, not even the sponsor labels stuck to the F1 cars.

Finally, the work doesn’t stop there: the environments are also unbeatable, pushing the details even from the stands to the audience. At the start and end of races, pit lanes and even paddocks are modeled with numerous mechanics and team members. Everything is done to promote the most complete immersion, and it works. A pleasure. We almost believe it…!

Appointment on July 1st next to play F1 22 secure computerPS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox One!
