EA Sports knows what you did last summer. If you’re an avid Formula 1 fan, they know you stayed up late to watch Max Verstappen win under the lights at Saudi Arabia. They know you canceled your Netflix subscription after bingeing an entire season of Formula 1: Drive to Survive in a single weekend. And they also know you want to see this just-released reveal trailer for this year’s new F1 23 video game, coming to Sony PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC, hoping you’ll give it a try this summer on June 16.
F1 23 puts gamers in the seat of their favorite F1 team again this year, but this time, the game’s physics engine has been tuned with the help of the people it portrays, as if someone from Red Bull stuck a hard drive in the wind tunnel. EA Sports says the racing feels more real than ever, emphasizing engine torque, inertia, and more realistic tire grip that should have folks white-knuckling their wireless controllers or racing wheels. This year, a new Precision Drive controller technology arrives to help players use sticks and buttons instead of wheels and pedals to put up a stronger fight across the virtual curbing.
After a grandstand of feedback from its players, the new F1 23 is also making some specific changes to how it delivers the drama of simulating the latest Formula 1 season. F1 2021′s Braking Point career story mode is back. A new 35 percent race distance creates a race that’s neither too short or real-time. There are even red flags now, which could make for some interesting strategic headaches, similar to the ones that plagued team principals in actual F1 races.
New additions to the 2023 F1 racing schedule are reflected in its video game. November’s Las Vegas Grand Prix is coming to F1 23, as well as Lusail International Circuit and three legacy circuits, France’s Paul Ricard, China’s Shanghai, and Portugal’s Portimão. A new progression system also gives players a chance at unlocking car upgrades, fancy liveries, and new helmets and racing suites by completing challenges. There’s a new safety rating for drivers, online multiplayer, and single player, in hopes of corraling a more serious field of racers to minimize lobbies with the infamous Turn 1 wrecking ball.
F1 23 is available for pre-order today on PlayStation Store, Microsoft’s Xbox Store, Epic Games, and Steam. The digital-exclusive F1 23 Champions Edition comes with Las Vegas content (must preorder by May 31), Max Verstappen Race Wear Pack, Braking Point 2 Icons and Vanity Item Pack, Dual Entitlement (available on PlayStation 4 and 5 and Xbox Series X and S only), four new My Team Icons, an XP Boost, F1 World Bumper Pack, and 18,000 PitCoin, as well as early access to the game three days ahead of launch. The World Starter Pack and 5000 PitCoins accompany pre-order sales of the standard-edition F1 23 game.
EA Sports has been serving up virtual F1 racing since new games were available on the Game Boy Color back in 2000. Now, 23 years later, they’re here to help celebrate the revival in popularity of F1 racing in the United States.

Yes, he’s still working on the 1986 Nissan 300ZX Turbo project car he started in high school, and no, it’s not for sale yet. Austin Irwin was born and raised in Michigan, and, despite getting shelled by hockey pucks during a not-so-successful goaltending career through high school and college, still has all of his teeth. He loves cars from the 1980s and Bleu, his Great Pyrenees, and is an active member of the Buffalo Wild Wings community. When Austin isn’t working on his own cars, he’s likely on the side of the highway helping someone else fix theirs.
