Formula 1 and racing game fans are in for a treat this year. Not only is F1 22 racing onto consoles and PC this July, but F1 Manager 2022 is launching later this year. With a wealth of team management options and broadcast-style raceday presentation, F1 Manager 2022 is shaping up to be the ultimate racing management sim.
F1 Manager 2022 will be available on a lot of consoles, including the PlayStation 5. What will the game be like on the next-gen system? We've got everything you need to know right here!
Be the Boss
F1 Manager sees you take on the pressurised role of Team Principal, managing one of the ten official F1 teams. Formula 2 and Formula 3 are also represented, with drivers from the Feeder series available for hire.
As you scout for drivers and staff, manage budgets to keep the board happy, and develop race strategies, your key decisions will affect the success and failure of your team.
Making the right calls
F1 Manager 2022 is accessible to anyone, but those who want to dive deeper can create their own custom strategies that can make the difference between success and failure, from choosing the right tyres according to weather conditions to planning pit stop windows.
You'll need to make the right calls and react to racing incidents that cause red or yellow flags. Experienced players can also develop new car parts and add new components to make your car more competitive and beat the competition.
With detailed driver face scans, faithfully recreated circuits, and broadcast-style presentation with authentic camera angles and replays during races, F1 Manager 2022 will immerse you into the world of F1.
F1 Manager 2022 PS5
As confirmed by the game's announcement trailer, F1 Manager is coming to PlayStation 5. We also know that the release date for F1 Manager is in the Summer of this year. That's the same for every console and all around the world.
Now, as for the gameplay on PS5, we don't know much yet. Typically, games on PS5 can run in full 4K and 60 frames per second. This is most likely going to be the case for the PS5 version as well.
Pre-orders for F1 Manager 2022 aren't live yet, so we don't know the price of the game yet. We also don't know where F1 Manager will be available in terms of retailers. However, we expect these to be the typical places in the UK, such as Amazon, GAME and Epic Games' website.
F1 Manager on PS4
PS5 isn't the only PlayStation that will have F1 Manager though, the PS4 will also get it. Again, we don't know the specs for what this game will be able to achieve. However, we'd expect it to be in 60 frames per second and full 1080p HD.
When it comes to purchasing the PS4 game, we'll probably see though is a similar system to what Gran Turismo 7 has used. This is where a purchase of the PS4 title will get you the PS5 version too, and vice versa. If it's a full triple-A release, that could mean a purchase price of £60 on release date.
