F1 23’s Release Date, Editions And New Features Have Been Officially Revealed

I still haven't played the other 122 F games!

Update: Following earlier leaks, the release date and first details for F1 23 have been officially confirmed, as well as the first big reveal trailer for the game.

F1 23 is set to launch on June 16th for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC with a Champions Edition coming that includes three days early access for a June 13th release.

As previously leaked, the game will see the return of the Braking Point story mode, which was missing in last year’s entry. It’ll also introduce two new circuits with the Las Vegas Street Circuit in Nevada, USA and the Losail International Circuit in Doha, Qatar. New gameplay tweaks and handling upgrades will be present, and a new F1 World mode is being introduced to tie together multiple game modes and the online multiplayer component to create a new season-based progression ecosystem.

EA Sports and Codemasters’ next entry in the F1 racing series was teased early last month, but without much more than a barren website with some jazzy graphics and a new logo.

Thanks in combination to frequent leakers, @billbil-kun as well as Insider Gaming though, we now potentially know a little more about the game ahead of an impending full reveal.

F1 23 will reportedly be released on June 16th, 2023 for regular purchases and will also launch three days earlier on June 13th for those who pre-order a special F1 23 Champions Edition.

Two pre-launch playtests will reportedly also be happening with one this weekend from April 28th – May 1st and the other on May 19th – May 22nd.

The game will apparently feature a new “F1 World” online hub, as well as a new car upgrade system where players will earn new parts and upgrade points through gameplay challenges and race wins.

Braking Point is supposedly making its return from F1 2021, giving players of this year’s title a narrative-driven story mode to play through. Circuit-wise, Insider Gaming reports that Las Vegas will be available to players at launch along with Qatar, and that both Portimao and China are likely to be featured as well.

Elsewhere, Supercars are back, livery customisation won’t be a thing, the HUD and on-screen displays are reportedly designed to more represent F1 TV broadcasts, and the game will also include a new “license” system that dynamically tracks how clean your driving is and what assists you use and offers rewards accordingly.

Provided that all of the above proves to be factual, and given the close timing with the reported upcoming beta test, it’s easy to assume we’ll be seeing official word on a lot of this and many other F1 23 details direct from the publisher and developer in the coming days.
