Braking Point 2:
“Braking Point” story mode is back with an all-new thrilling chapter featuring new rivalries and even more drama in F1® 23.
Konnersport Butler F1 Racing Team
The story focuses on Konnersport Butler F1® Racing Team – a new fictional team on the grid – and spans the 2022 and 2023 F1® seasons. Rising young star Aiden Jackson is at odds with his bold and arrogant veteran teammate Devon Butler. When one of their futures is threatened by a personal issue, Devon’s sister and recent F2® Champion, Callie Mayer enters the picture. To bring Callie’s story to life, the narrative team tapped British motorsport racing driver Jamie Chadwick and SkySports F1® reporter Natalie Pinkham. Team Principal Casper Akkerman has to negotiate team and family dynamics, and the manipulations of Devon and Callie’s father (and key sponsor of the team, Davidoff Butler). As your point of view varies among different characters, the story progresses via gameplay and cinematic cutscenes, and is driven by your choices throughout.

Upgrade your F1® World car all season with a new Tech Level progression system. Complete challenges, compete online, and play events updated throughout the season to earn upgrades via gameplay to increase your Tech Level, which represents the performance of your F1® World car. As your Tech Level increases, your car’s performance increases and you get the ability to compete in more challenging events. You can still enter events above your Tech Level, but the challenge will be higher as a result. Better players will be able to outperform their car’s Tech Level, but only to a certain degree.
Earn upgrades and spend time tinkering in the Garage to customize and develop your F1® World car to be faster and more powerful as you progress. Upgrades in F1® World are split into two categories – Car Parts and Team Member upgrades. Car Parts boost your car’s gameplay performance. Team Member upgrades can be boosted via a contract system for extra “equip-able” items to further buff your performance.
A new Crafting system in F1® World allows you to apply Resources to Blueprints to craft various upgrades, plus craft contracts to equip for gameplay mods, new stickers that you can collect and add to your Compendium, and more.
A new license system promotes clean racing throughout F1® World, and rewards players for respectful driving.
Revamped Ranked Multiplayer
F1® World introduces the revamped ranked multiplayer mode with a new division-based ranking system, F1® 23’s Esports series, and a new Goals system that makes Podium Pass progress more efficient. Play to earn points, rise up the ranks from Bronze to Elite with weekly promotions, and earn prizes and upgrades you can apply to your Tech Level.
As you complete challenges on your F1® World journey, commemorate your progress with a new Compendium, which is your virtual sticker album that celebrates everything to do with Formula 1®, past and present. Play the game, earn stickers, place them into the Compendium, and complete images to earn more rewards and prizes.
Refined handling, better racing
For more predictable behavior on track, new vehicle physics give F1® cars better traction when braking, accelerating, and turning. Real F1® team feedback has been incorporated into balance adjustments between aerodynamic grip and tyre grip, resulting in a more realistic feel and more fluid racing. With improved engine torque and inertia changes, throttle response is more authentic and easier to adjust.
Precision Drive™ controller technology
Race wheel-to-wheel with more control, precision, and finesse enabled by a controller tech rewrite that delivers more confidence for controller players in crucial moments.
The new Red Flag feature adds an authentic strategy element to every F1® 23 race day.
35% Race Distance
A new 35% Race Distance option allows for realistic race strategy and setup where tyre wear remains a key factor without committing too much time to every race.
