A new year is here and racers are eagerly awaiting F1 23 PC to see what the new game holds.

Last year was the first time the Codemasters Formula 1 title had official VR support for PC players, but what could be coming this year?


Let's take a look!

F1 23 PC

F1 22 was a good time for PC players, with official VR support featuring as the major upgrade that PC players enjoyed over those on console.

Otherwise, the usual benefits of modding and creativity were huge for PC players, but F1 22 did a good job of delivering the kind of racing PC players have come to expect.

F1 23 should be an evolution of last year's game for PC players.

We expect the F1 23 release date to be around late June/early July and available through Steam and the EA App.


After its successful integration to F1 22, we fully anticipate that VR will once again feature prominently in F1 23.

Whether this extends to PSVR support we don't yet know, but the following VR headsets should be compatible with F1 23.

System requirements

While the full system requirements for F1 23 are not yet known, we doubt they will change much from F1 22s.

As with all things, the better your PC setup the better F1 23 will look and play, but mid-range PCs should still be able to handle F1 23 and provide a good experience.

For reference, we have listed F1 22's system requirements below.
