Codemasters releases hotfix for F1 22

It's rare that Codemasters drops patches out of the blue, but that's what has happened with a new F1 22 hotfix!

With most of us eagerly awaiting the F1 Esports race, Codemasters dropped a patch for the new Formula 1 game addressing several pressing conserns.

So what is in the patch?

F1 22 hotfix

The hotfix, as you would expect, doesn't contain much and is only 243 MB on Steam.

The official notes for it are as follows:

  • Addresses corrupted savegame files for some players
  • Addresses excessive force feedback during collisions
  • Addresses non-functioning Steam invites with cross-play

Those are pretty key issues! It doesn't say if previously corrupted savegame files are now recoverable. We certainly hope so.
