Codemasters and Electronic Arts supply fans of F1 22 continued sporting authenticity and special items. Based on the references provided by the Formula 1 teams, the game will bring an update to the sports livery on October 31st. All teams, including new FIA Formula 1 Constructors’ World Champion Red Bull, have had various changes made to their cars relating to geometry, bodywork, sponsors and colours, as well as team kit, hospitality areas and garage look. There is also the third update for the in-game driver ratings and special items designed to celebrate Halloween and FORMULA 1 GRAN PREMIO DE LA CIUDAD DE MÉXICO 2022.

In keeping with Halloween, a special limited-time theme inspired by the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland will be incorporated into the game, which is free for all players. The Grin Wrap will be sent via in-game message and can be redeemed between October 31st and December 5th. Supporting the Wonderland narrative and inspired by the character of the Queen of Hearts, fans can purchase the whimsical and customizable Wonderland Heart Set in the Item Shop from November 2nd to November 8th, which includes a wrap, helmet, suit and gloves.
“With every race, F1 teams evolve their cars and designs. This year we’ve worked harder than ever to deliver a wide range of upgrades for every team on the starting line-up to ensure the sports update is our biggest and most authentic yet, bringing our players closer than ever to the reality,” said Paul Jeal, Senior Director F1 Franchise at Codemasters. “We hope fans will also enjoy some of the festive elements we’ve included this time around.”
