First Look In-Game VR Gameplay Featuring Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll Here

Redwood City, Calif. – June 17, 2022 – Today, Codemasters® and Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) released the first look at EA SPORTS F1® 22 gameplay captured in VR ahead of this weekend’s FORMULA 1 AWS GRAND PRIX DU CANADA 2022. Exclusive to the PC platform, VR is just one of the many innovations that await players when the game releases on July 1. Featuring local hero Lance Stroll in the Aston Martin AMR22, the immersive gameplay demonstrates the claustrophobic feel of sitting in the cockpit. Players will experience the thrill of racing in the pinnacle of motorsport like never before throughout the 4.361km Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in Montreal. F1® 22 will also be available for PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, and Xbox One.

“VR revolutionises F1 22 on PC and takes the race weekend to an entirely new level,” said Lee Mather, F1® Senior Creative Director at Codemasters. "From the claustrophobia of sitting in the cockpit to the intensity of lights out as 20 cars accelerate towards the first corner. This is as close to Formula 1 racing as you can get without being on the actual grid.”

Available for F1®, F2, and supercars as part of F1® Life, players will finally be able to experience the race weekend from an entirely new perspective. Starting in the garage, watch the team work tirelessly before heading to the grid. Marvel at the intricate detail of the environment and feel the intensity and speed whilst fighting for the racing line in this season’s revolutionary new cars, complete with new physics and handling models.  

F1® 22 will release July 1 2022, for PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin, and Steam. Players can pre-order the digital-only F1® 22 Champions Edition for additional content and three days of early access*.
