With the Canadian Grand Prix getting underway this weekend, the Frontier Developments teams wanted to clarify a number of points about their upcoming game: F1 Manager 2022. They have therefore shared a lot of information on their Discord, which provided some clarifications on the players’ questions.
An unlimited career mode but with some limitations
The studio wanted to remind you of that at first F1 Manager 2022 was a pure single player game with no multiplayer component. Also, we already knew that creating your own team would be impossible as the choices were limited to the ten existing teams in the official championship. From a technical point of view, it will not be possible to play with the keyboard-mouse combo on PC, since the developers have done everything to make the game suitable for the controller. As already confirmed, we can accelerate the game time up to 16 times the normal speed or experience it in real time. One of the most important decisions during the season will be which engine to use if your team isn’t developing one, and voting on rule changes.
A lot of clarifications have been made to the heart of the gameplay. The red flags will of course be there as they account for a large part of the impact an accident can have on the strategy to be followed in the race. The number of seasons for the same save is completely unlimited. However, a team change in the event of a dismissal is not possible. Then either is required:
- Back to the last save point
- Step back five beats
- Restart the current season
- Create a new backup
According to Community Manager, we won’t even be able to switch teams manually. If the game specifications indicate the use of licenses formula 2 and formula 3, It will not be possible to follow these championships, only the development of the pilots. The reserve players of the main teams also become part of the list from which you can select your stable’s competitors. New pilots and staff are generated throughout the season, including women in all roles.
F1 manager 22 will be released on Xbox One, Xbox Series, Playstation consoles and PC. It can be pre-ordered from the Microsoft Store for €49.49. The gameplay trailer can be seen below:
