The Free Play weekend in F1 22 begins tomorrow, October 20 and continues until Monday, October 24. During this time, a free trial of F1 22 will be available on PlayStation and Xbox consoles as well as PC via Steam.

“With the Circuit of the Americas just around the corner, we wanted to do something special and allow as many players as possible to experience the new era of Formula 1,” said Paul Jeal, Senior Director of the F1 Franchise at Codemasters. “During this free weekend trial, anyone can experience the thrill of Formula 1 for a limited time and we couldn’t have asked for a better coach to show us around the circuit than Daniel Ricciardo.”

F1 22 players can also receive new US-inspired items in-game simply by logging in anytime between now until November 7. Head over to the F1 22 website for more details.
