Continue reading the article to know everything about F1 22 VR mode.
How VR works in F1 22?
If you’re playing F1 22 in VR, the camera is restricted to the cockpit view for many reasons to make the simulation more immersive and replicate the feel of an actual car that players control. Unlike the standard version of F1 2022, you have more control of the car like being able to freely look left and right from the cockpit and is the first F1 game to integrate VR.
The weather effects also look nice and add a lot to enhance the atmosphere whether it be daytime, nighttime or raining, it also affects the gameplay, and players have to adjust to those conditions. There’s also realistic handling and if you don’t properly time your turns, your car will end up out of control and crash. These factors alone make it much more enjoyable than standard racing games on market. Keep in mind that F1 2022 VR is only available on PC at the moment.
Difference between the standard and VR version of the game
There are two versions of F1 2022, which is the standard one, and the championship edition which includes additional bonus content. If you’re willing to spend more, you can opt for the championship edition for the sweet additional content. There are a few bugs in the VR version, but nothing game-breaking that hampers the experience, and it is expected that Codemasters will release patches that’ll fix the bugs that are present in the game.
