Electronic Arts has announced that it is bringing back Braking Point for the upcoming EA Sports F1 23, which was originally introduced in F1 21 and was absent in last year’s Formula One racer.
In addition, the publishing powerhouse revealed that the Standard Edition of F1 23 will feature cover stars Lewis Hamilton, Lando Norris, and Charles Leclerc. Meanwhile, the digital-exclusive Champions Edition will feature Max Verstappen,
That’s not all for F1 23 either. Codemasters revealed that the development team is making use of real-life F1 team feedback to overhaul vehicle physics, allowing for “a greater balance between aerodynamics and tyre grip results in a more realistic feel.”
Codemasters’ Lee Mather commented:
The return of Braking Point allows players to immerse themselves in a racing story, which provides a unique look at F1 alongside the authentic race features our players know and love. Our close relationship with the teams has allowed us to refine our handling model, adding greater realism to pad-play, and implementing a new colour encoding system used in film and TV creates a more true-to-life experience.
More details on EA Sports F1 23 will be revealed on May 3 at 4.00pm BST
