F1 22 patch 1.08 is available on all platforms fixing the AI straight line speed after slow corners. This update to rebalance the AI performance in Career mode will apply to current and existing saves.
After this patch, please anticipate an average decrease in Career difficulty by five. You may need to alter your save game settings for the best experience.
F1 22 developers continue to update the status of what is currently being investigated along with fixes that will be addressed in upcoming patches. Several larger updates are expected later this year, including the Sports Update, cross-play and additional F1 22 tracks.
Speaking of cross-play, for those of you that missed out on the F1 22 cross-play beta this past weekend, you get another shot starting Friday August 12 through August 14.
Players will be able to race with friends across PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam and Origin in Social Race and Two-Player Career modes.
“Cross-play brings all our players together and allows them to settle the score of who is the best driver across all platforms,” said Lee Mather, F1 Senior Creative Director at Codemasters. “Cross-play also allows us to create better matchmaking opportunities so players can compete against rival racers with similar attributes.”
The cross-play integration feature will improve matchmaking and allow friends to come together regardless of platform. Those who wish to compete exclusively against devices from the same family of devices also have the option to disable cross-play. By using the ‘Invite Friends’ option in the game lobby, session hosts can invite friends on other platforms. Players can view and accept requests while racing by pausing the game and clicking the ‘Invitations and Requests’ option.
As a reminder, China’s Shanghai International Circuit is scheduled to arrive on September 12. Just like Portimao, the circuit will be available in Time Trial, Grand Prix and Multiplayer modes.
