It's following EA's naming scheme now, so it's called "F1 22," not F1 2022.

F1 Life added. That didn't take long for EA to ruin this franchise.

EA and Codemasters have revealed the first F1 22 in-engine trailer featuring the brand-new Miami International Autodrome track...

I'm gonna wait on reviews for this one. 21 had lots of issues compared to 20 and they never got around to fixing most of them.

At this point and with EA in charge don't have many expectations.

My nephew pre ordered this so I may pick it up to play with him. Enjoying Dirt Rally 2 when we get the time to mess about in that but he's more into the F1 stuff and with VR this may be a lot of fun... but hard to pick between VR and ultrawide lol.

Been playing it for a couple weeks and VR is pretty much unplayable for me on CV1 with low fps and choppyness. I'm sticking to ultrawide until it's been dealt with.
Overall some improvements but needs alot of patching up to fix alot of issues.

I read the general impressions and also realized I barely play ‘21 so I held off buying. If I have a chance to actually play ‘21 and like it I might try ‘22 for the VR but it sounds like it needs work.

Thew newest drivers from Nvidia fixed the VR problem for me. I'm running Super Sampling 1.5 on oculus debug and it runs silky smooth now.
Overall, the driving physics has been updated since last year and for the better. You better watch out going on rumble strips this year, far less forgiving compared to 21.

F1 22 can be fun in both VR and ultrawide so if you buy it for just one of the two, it won't disappoint.
I switch on and off between the two, so its a pretty good overall experience on both sides.

I hear this is a nice looking game...the Flight Simulator 2020 of car racing sims...the latest Nvidia 526.47 drivers released today bring DLSS 3 support

F1 22 features immersive ray-traced opaque reflections, shadows, transparent reflections, ambient occlusion and more...

The F1 Codemasters games have always looked good. It still has that kind of glossy veneer to it that prevents it from looking realistic, though. It's too clean.

I see it’s 50% off, is it worth it at that price? The Steam reviews aren’t very kind, but for half price I can maybe ignore some glaring weaknesses.

depends if you're into racing games...F1 22 seems like a combo sim and arcade

I am, I played 21 a bit and it was fun but it seems like every year more and more people hate the series.

To those that own it does the VR work well? Steam people say it doesn’t but who knows what type of system they were trying it with.

When it came out the AI was very broken and there were issues with parts of the sim. People blame EA for the poor quality compared to prior releases, but I'm not so sure. The series is really a mixed bag looking over its 13-year history.

Fantastic entries: 2011, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2020
Okay entries: 2012, 2015, 2018, 2019, 2021
Poor entries: 2009, 2010, 2016, 22

Thanks, most people say to get 2020 and mod it, I guess that was the last great entry.

I’ll probably give 22 a try anyway.

what does modding do for it? better graphics? I've been thinking of getting a wheel and pedals. I love driving but there's no twisty roads where I live.

Modding it for the 2022 season (driver lineup, liveries, performance, etc.).

for a fast-paced racing game like this I'm not sure that the ray-tracing features would even be noticeable during normal gameplay...I was thinking about picking this up but changed my mind as the closed tracks all look very same-y...I prefer the open world racing of a game like Forza Horizon

Modern safety requirements make new circuits all look similar from the cockpit. There also seems to be a rash of temporary street circuits being added. I guess they're cheaper than purpose-built circuits. Old circuits like Spa are more exciting, but there are some modern ones that are fun. I blame Hermann Tilke for sucking a lot of the fun out of modern circuit design. Zandvoort, Silverstone, and Singapore are my favorite more modern circuit layouts, and the environments they take place in couldn't be more different from each other. I absolutely hate Abu Dhabi, Baku, and Mexico City.

Just bought the F1 SF1000 wheel addon and wow, such a huge improvement for this game alone.

nice monitor. have you tried VR to compare? I've read racing in VR is pretty amazing but you can't do it for long periods of time. also, the graphics look way worse in VR I believe.

I really wish they would fix the VR for this game.

They compensated on performance by making everything at a distance blurry. So stupid.... just leave it in focus and we can turn the settings down if need be

The 15th post on this thread is where I recorded in VR. It's not the best looking game in VR, but adding supersampling 1.5 does the trick for decent visuals.

Imo, racing in VR doesn't make me sick because you're always moving forward. It's FPS games that make me sick in VR by moving in every direction.
Other's may have a different tolerance, but that's how I feel when playing VR games.

Yea it does look stretched when recording from a monitor, but in the VR headset, it looks perfectly fine without the stretched look.

In F1, I like both VR and monitor. Sometimes I'm just too lazy to hook up the VR peripherals that I just stick to monitor.

Other games like American Truck Simulator, I only play in VR. It's just a way better overall experience.
Imo, you can have fun in both VR and monitor both ways.
