VR mode only compatible with certain PC headsets
Of course, it is also possible to only listen to the music in the menu and to rely entirely on the engine sound & Co. in the racing car. If you play on PC, you can also play in VR with a compatible VR headset. Here, F1 22 automatically switches to the cockpit view and you can look around directly in the car. In addition, the garage on the racetrack can be explored in virtual reality. According to Codemasters, the VR mode was brought to the slopes together with the developers of Dirt Rally. VR can be used in online multiplayer modes as well as in all single player modes. However – at the time of release – only the Valve Index, Oculus Quest 2, Oculus Rift S, HTC Vive and HTC Vive Cosmos are supported. Other VR headsets are not compatible with F1 22 for now.
The F1 Life game mode, which publisher EA advertises as a social hub, is new. In this multiplayer lobby, other players can see what you’ve accomplished. Here players can present their collected trophies as well as their supercars and fashion accessories. Virtual items such as clothing for the player, the furnishings in his living room can be purchased in the shop with pitcoins or as a reward for mastered challenges. Supercars such as the safety cars Mercedes-AMG GT and Aston Martin Vantage can be presented in F1 Life and driven on the F1 racetracks in Pirelli Hot Laps.
