The F1 22 release date is here! The game is out now and you should be able to jump into it as soon as you've got it downloaded.


Check out our F1 22 review to see what we thought of the game, which will boast the full F1 22 track list as well as a bunch of supercars and fun new challenges.

Despite being planned for the future, one thing that you won't see at launch is F1 22 crossplay, and don't go expecting an F1 22 story mode either (there's no Braking Point sequel this year, which might sadden Drive to Survive).

We've also posted our video review for the game, and you can check that out here:

So, whether you're planning to buy the game outright or just fancy checking out the F1 22 Game Pass trial, keep on reading as we run through the key details of the game's launch.
