While the game will of course feature (simulated) racing action, you won’t be driving any of the vehicles. Instead, you’re behind the scenes, plotting strategies and aiming to secure a win by calling the shots — when to pit, what tyres to use, which drivers and teammates to hire, etc. The gameplay looks pretty intense, presenting you with a huge amount of data while races play out.
This summer, we’ll be treated to not one but two Formula One games, each of which takes a unique approach to the beloved sport. F1 22 is Codemasters’ annual racing game that puts players in the driver’s seat. F1 Manager 2022, on the other hand, is a completely new management simulation that puts you in the shoes of the team principle. Frontier Developments has recently released a new trailer, which you can see above.
So, if you’re more into charts and tactics than racing the cars yourself, it might be worth giving this a look. F1 Manager 2022 comes to PS5 and PS4 on 30th August, but if you pre-order, you’ll be able to start playing from the 25th August. Are you keen for this management sim?
