We've got everything you need to know about F1 24 on PS5 right here!

Latest news: F1 24 officially revealed

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. Not only that, the platforms for F1 have also been announced, and it's good news for PS5 players.

F1 24 will be launching on PS5, meaning current-gen players can hit the grid when the game releases. Speaking of release, the official release date for F1 24 has also been confirmed.

F1 24 will be starting its engines on 31 May 2024, with players preordering the game getting three days early access. This puts them on the grid from 28 May, with plenty of time to learn the new car setups.

F1 24 PS5

F1 24 will be released on all of the next-gen consoles, and this includes the PlayStation 5. The PS5 has arguably the best controller pad in the video gaming realm, as its DualSense controller has revolutionised racing gaming.

The haptic feedback feature of the PS5 controller adds a new level of immersion to racing. You can really feel the surface you're racing on, whether it's the tarmac below the wheels or the gravel trap if you've run wide.

If your TV/ monitor is up to it, the PS5 will be able to play F1 24 in up to 4K and with a refresh rate of 60 frames per second. It'll look absolutely stunning, especially as the graphics get better each year.

F1 24 will be one of only two console games, alongside F1 Manager 2024, that will replicate the official 2024 Formula 1 season. All 20 drivers, ten teams and the full 2024 calendar will be in F1 24.

On top of that, F1 World will continue to evolve and the full 2023 Formula 2 grid, teams and drivers will also be included.

Will F1 24 be coming to PS4?

F1 23 came out on the old-gen systems of the PS4 and Xbox One, but will that be the case for F1 24? Well, despite EA Sports WRC not being released on the last-gen systems in a move that has arguably helped the game, it's still good news for F1 fans.

F1 24 will be launching on PS4, in a move that all but confirms no new engine will be coming to this year's entry. This might disappoint current-gen players, but for those struggling to source a PS5, this keeps Ps4 players in the race.

Where can you buy F1 24 on PS5?

EA are promoting EA Play, and while you can't buy the PS5 version of F1 24 there, there is a benefit to subscribing to the service.

You will be able to pre-order the digital version of F1 24 via the PlayStation Store and being an EA Play subscriber will earn you access to a discount.

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 PS5 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.

Being an EA Play subscriber will also likely earn you a 10% discount when you pre-order the game via the PS Store.
