F1 24 is coming to PC later this year! PC racing gamers will be wondering what specs they'll need to run EA Sports' Formula 1 game, so will your rig be up to the challenge?

So, we'll be bringing you everything you need to know about F1 24 on PC. This includes the minimum and recommended PC specs, as well as where you should be able to buy F1 24.

F1 24 PC

Unlike standardised consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, no two gaming PCs are exactly alike.

This means you have virtually unlimited options when it comes to building your PC, but it also means you need to make sure your rig is up to the task of running your favourite games.

Because of the nature of the ever-evolving yearly franchise like EA Sports' F1 series, that means the yardstick is constantly moving. Just like F1 cars themselves, gaming PCs are constantly being improved and innovated upon.

So, we're bringing you everything that PC gamers can expect from F1 24 when it launches this summer!

Minimum specs

We'll start with the minimum specs for the game, as without a setup that has these capabilities, you won't be able to play F1 24 at all. With the recent reveal of the game, we now have the recommended minimum specs for F1 24.

Therefore we can expect F1 24's minimum PC system requirements to be these values:

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit Version 21H1 or newer
  • Processor: Intel Core i3-2130 | Core i5-9600k (VR) or AMD FX 4300 | Ryzen 5 2600X (VR)
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics card: NVIDIA GTX 1060 (6GB) | GTX 1660Ti (VR) | RTX 2060 (RT) // AMD RX 480 (8GB) | RX 590 (VR) | 6700XT (RT) // Intel Arc A380 (VR/RT)
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Hard-drive space: 100 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
  • VR Support: Keyboard and mouse required

The minimum specs listed are the bare minimum for running F1 24 on PC. To run the game in higher graphics and frame rate settings, you'll need to bump those rookie PC numbers up.

These are the recommended specs for F1 24:

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit Version 21H1 or newer
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-9600k or AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics card: NVIDIA RTX 2070 (+VR) | RTX 3070 (RT) // AMD RX 6600XT | RX 6700XT (VR) | RX 6800 (RT) // Intel Arc A580 (VR/RT)
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Hard-drive space: 100 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
  • VR Support: Keyboard and mouse required

With F1 24 also releasing on last-gen consoles, there's still an upgrade on F1 23, but not a significant one. We still expect F1 24 will push the boundaries of what the PS5, Series X | S and, by extension, the PC can do, however.

Where can I buy F1 24?

Retailers for F1 24 haven't been fully confirmed yet, but like the specs, we can make some educated guesses for what these will be. EA Play has been confirmed, as it is EA's online gaming platform and as F1 24 will be published by EA Sports, it will be on there.

The biggest PC games retailer is Steam, and despite a push towards EA Play for EA Sports games, Steam players still won't miss out on F1 24.

Other major gaming retailers in the UK such as Amazon and GAME will also likely be places to go to pre-order F1 24.

F1 24 editions & prices

F1 23 had two versions of the game which were available to pre-order. These were the "Standard" and "Champions" editions.

Despite the name, there were some pre-order bonuses that came with the Standard version. These were 5,000 PitCoins to spend in-game and a starter pack for F1 World.

This cost £59.99 in the UK and we'd expect a similar price and pre-order extras for the Standard Edition of F1 24 later this year.

The Champions Edition of F1 23 was more expensive at £79.99.

There was a lot more bang for your buck, though, as you'd get the pre-order bonuses of the Standard Edition as well as three days of early access, exclusive Las Vegas and Verstappen content, the F1 World Bumper Pack and 13,000 more PitCoins to spend.

EA has confirmed that players transferring over from F1 23 will receive a loyalty discount on F1 24. This applies to the Champions Edition of the game and is eligible for players who own F1 2021, F1 22, and F1 23.

Release date and trailer

After multiple rumours, teases, and leaks, we finally have an official reveal of F1 24!

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), EA has finally pulled back the curtain on this year's F1 entry. As part of the announcement, the release date for F1 24 has also been confirmed.

F1 24 will be launching on 31 May on all platforms, with three days of early access for players who preorder the game. Preorder bonuses also include exclusive 2024 car liveries, as well as VIP Podium Pass rewards, dependent on which edition of the game is preordered.
