Excitement is building for the release of F1 23, the newest addition to the FIA Formula 1 World Championship. Electronic Arts recently made a promise of a “new beginning” with a first teaser image, mentioning PlayStation, Xbox, and Steam. Though no specific details have been announced, EA has revealed the covers for the Formula 1 game for 2023.
The F1 2022 game was highly competitive despite the change in regulations that occurred in Formula 1. Now, it’s time to focus on the drivers who will be featured on the covers of F1 23, which EA has recently unveiled.
The official game of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship will have two covers featuring multiple world champions. Max Verstappen will grace the cover of the F1 23 Champions Exclusive edition for digital devices. The Dutch driver is capitalizing on his exciting new partnership with EA Sports and has the EA Sports brand on his helmet.
For the F1 23 Standard Edition, Scuderia Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc returns as the cover star for the second year in a row. This time, he’s joined by seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton and British McLaren star Lando Norris. Each driver appears in their respective spaces, which go from left to right in the image: Mercedes, Ferrari, and McLaren.
The F1 23 world premiere trailer will be available to fans on May 3 at 5 p.m. (Spanish time). Although the game’s release date has been leaked earlier than usual, EA has yet to make an official confirmation.
While we await further details, we can’t help but wonder if the covers of F1 23 are to everyone’s taste. Regardless, fans can sign up for the F1 23 Closed Beta to test the game months before its release. With all of the new updates and features yet to be revealed, we can’t wait to see what F1 23 has in store for us.
