Codemasters and Electronic Arts have announced that in EA Sports F1 22 cross-play will be added, arriving later this month. Prior to full integration at the end of August, players can compete with friends on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (Steam and Origin) in two separate trials that will run from 5 to 7 and from 12 to 14 August in the Social Race and Two-player Career modes. “Cross-play brings all of our players together and allows them to determine who is the best driver across all platforms,” ​​said Lee Mather, Senior Creative Director of F1 at Codemasters. “Cross-play also allows us to create better matchmaking opportunities, so that players can compete against rival drivers with similar characteristics.” The integration of cross-play will improve multiplayer and allow friends to meet regardless of platform. It is also possible to disable cross-play for those who wish to compete only against opponents from the same device family. Session organizers can invite friends on other platforms via the “Invite Friends” option in the game lobby. Players can review and accept requests during the match by pausing the game and visiting the “Invitations and Requests” option.
