Codemasters and EA will deliver more F1 22 special items that reflect the upcoming Formula 1 season including the new McLaren Racing livery, which will debut at the Singapore and Japanese Grands Prix. On October 11, the Future Mode livery will replace the standard McLaren Racing livery within Podium Pass Series 3, which will be free to download for all players.
Singapore and Japan’s futuristic and innovative landscapes inspire Future Mode which features bright neon colors dominating a 3D graphic style. After its limited time expires, players will be able to permanently download the McLaren livery and use it as a player car. Additionally, the new livery will be used by the McLaren Shadow Team in the F1 Esports Series between October 12 and 14.
To better reflect individual performance, the team released its second Driver Ratings update in collaboration with Formula 1 experts David Croft, Alex Jacques, and Anthony Davidson.
