Today, Frontier Developments revealed their second behind-the-scenes video for F1 Manager 2022, the major new officially licensed F1 management simulation game. F1 Manager 2022 will launch on August 30 (August 25 for players who pre-order) on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Steam, and the Epic Games Store.
In ‘Episode 2 – People Power’, Frontier CEO and Founder, David Braben, and Art Director, Matt Dickinson, discuss Frontier’s commitment to delivering a truly authentic Formula 1 experience in F1 Manager 2022. In the game, players will take charge of their chosen 2022 F1 constructor, creating their ultimate driver pairing, choosing from the full roster of 2022 F1, F2, and F3 drivers.
In exclusive footage, players can delve into the in-depth process of capturing drivers for the game as they join two of Frontier’s facial scan capture sessions, featuring Williams Racing driver, Alexander Albon, and Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN’s Zhou Guanyu. An impressive 200 camera lenses work to create intricate 3D facial models, bringing each driver to life in-game in breath-taking detail. Each driver also has a data profile, created using a wealth of real historical data points, in order to accurately reflect their behaviors and driving style.
This commitment to realism is shared across the entirety of the game. Working closely with Formula 1, the development team has been able to access a vast archive of historical data and broadcast footage, in order to create an immersive simulation experience that is true-to-life. Prospective Team Principals will be able to use authentic data to guide their decisions, reacting to realistic tire degradation, changing weather conditions, and safety car and red flag incidents.
Players should keep one ear to their team radio for future behind-the-scenes content and further news on F1 Manager 2022 ahead of launch.
