F1 2022: EA add real-world track updates to latest edition

Track changes to Spain in F1 22.

The developers of F1 22 are set to add in the all-new track updates on the real-life Formula 1 calendar.

EA and Codemasters are teaming up for the second time since reuniting in their elusive gaming partnership, where this title will focus on the new regulations and updated circuits.

Three tracks have been given a makeover for the 2022 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, one of which actually took effect during an epic climax in 2021 between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen.

That being said, F1 2021 did not implement all of the changes to particular circuits that were made, which was a mix of short-notice cancellations due to COVID-19 and developmental reasons.

Despite this, those updates are set to be addressed this summer in what is one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of the year so far.
