EA and Codemasters is preparing to launch its next iteration of the acclaimed F1 series of racing games, and today a new features trailer offers a look at new and returning features to the latest F1 game, launching July 16 for Xbox Series X|S and PS5, alongside PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
In the new trailer, fans of the Formula 1 franchise can look forward to a plethora of gameplay innovations for casual and seasoned racers, including Braking Point, Career Mode, and My Team:

- The expanded two-player Career Mode feature allows racers to go head to head in synchronous online or local play, offering an exciting new way to experience the revered Career mode.
- For My Team competitors, real-world stat updates from F1 racers are updated throughout the season to reflect the action on the track, while Real-Season Start allows players to jump in at any point in the calendar that has already occurred with up-to-date standings.
