Many new features have been added to an already impressive game that promises to provide players with one of the most comprehensive track racing simulation experiences on the market today that players are going to adore, so without any more delays, let us jump right into the details regarding the next game in the popular F1 games series.
F1 23 Release Date List
F1 23 Release Date
The wait for the next installment in this popular race simulation game series is finally over as F1 23 has been released on June 16, 2023.
If you are someone who had pre-ordered the game, several exclusive bonuses were included in it, such as:
- Early access to the game

F1 23 Gameplay Features
One of the major additions to F1 23 is the addition of the Career mode. This particular mode has been completely redesigned, and it now promises to offer players a more immersive and challenging experience.
In this mode, players will start their career as one of the young, up-and-coming drivers, and they’ll need to work their way up through the ranks to become a certified world champion. Along the way, players will need to manage their finances and make strategic career-related decisions, all while dealing with the added pressures of racing at the highest level.
Next up is another exciting new feature added in F1 23, the new handling model. This new model has been completely overhauled, and it promises to deliver a more realistic and challenging driving experience to players who are specifically looking for a game that provides the authentic feeling of actually driving F1 cars on professional tracks all across the world.
Another feature the developers of the game were keen to emphasize when speaking about the game before its release was the introduction of a new 35% race distance mode. This mode comes right in between the two other modes of 25% and 50% and looks to offer players an easier option to complete their races.
This new mode is particularly targeted towards players who either like to complete their races efficiently in a relatively quick manner or enthusiasts looking to implement realistic mechanics in their game like real-life tire degradation and pit stops. For beginners, this gameplay mechanics decides how many laps there will be in a race.
Red Flags are also making a comeback into the F1 games series after a long break, since F1 2014 to be precise, to add a new layer of tension and immersion into the races. Red Flags are used during a state of alarm, usually when there is a big accident or if there is too much rain going on during the races, causing cars to lose control, the official waves the red flag to signal to the racers that they have to pull-up and line up in the pit-stops until the situation is back under control.
Although it may not appear to be much, this is a very prominent feature seen during live races, and we are glad this feature has been reintroduced into the game as it can decide the outcome of closely contested races, giving races an exciting, edge-of-the-seat feel.
Moving on to gameplay features that are making a comeback in F1 23, first up is the new story mode, which, for some strange reason, was unavailable in F1 22.
This returning story mode is called ‘Braking Point’ and it will follow the story of young racers Aiden Jackson and Devon, as they fight for the top spot and prize in F1 23, but instead of being in opposite dugouts, this time they will represent the same team, the Konnersport Butler Global Racing Team.
It is not a revamp of the story, instead, it will pick up from where the first chapter of this sporting rivalry began all the way back in F1 21.
Apart from the two central characters, a new female character by the name of Callie Maye is introduced into the game and is looking to break into F1. The female character is voiced by real-world W-Series Champion, Jamie Chadwick, to add a a more unique level of immersion in their gameplay.
Here, take a look at the recap trailer to get you up-to-speed with the story of ‘Braking Point’ so far:
Moreover, a new multiplayer mode and a new livery editor are added to the game as well, making sure that F1 23 provides its players with one of the most immersive racing experiences seen in a racing game to date.

F1 23 Platforms
The Developers and publishers have not revealed the F1 23 Platforms yet. We can, however, predict the platforms that EA Sports will most likely target. If we talk regarding F1 23 for Playstation, we may be able to play F1 23 on PS 4 or even PS 5.
Next up, as far as F1 23 for Xbox is concerned, EA Sports will most likely target Xbox One. We are almost sure that there will be F1 23 on Windows as well.
We can’t say for sure if the developers will be planning for the game to be released on mobile platforms. There has been only one F1 Racing Game for mobile platforms till now. In total honesty, it is quite unlikely for the F1 23 to be released on IOS or Android Mobile Platforms.
On concluding our analysis, it is safe to say that F1 23 will most likely be released on PS 4, Xbox One & Windows. The intended platforms will be disclosed by EA Sports soon and we will make sure to update them here as soon as the word is out.
F1 23 News & Rumors
The first rumor that had been circulating for a while was undoubtedly regarding the release date of F1 23. Despite receiving no official information on the release date from the developers, the game’s fandom had already narrowed down the game to release somewhere close to July.
There were also rumors among fans regarding the fact that the developers will be looking to bring back the game’s engaging story mode called Braking Point, which was mightily missed by fans as it was surprisingly omitted from F1 22, and now after the game has been released, it is fair to say that the fans were right to demand it. There were also numerous speculations that indicated that the developers may prioritize improving the gameplay mechanics of the upcoming game as the previous version of the game, F1 22, was particularly glitchy.
The one department in which F1 22 excelled was unsurprisingly the cars themselves, and it was anticipated that players may experience even more significant improvement in regards to the cars, their designs, and overall handling. Now, once the game has already been released for some time, the vehicle mechanics were indeed praised by the player base, especially their smooth handling, it is fair to conclude that the rumors about EA working on their vehicle mechanics were relatively right.
