The development team behind F1 23 has recently released a detailed list of issues that are supposed to be fixed with the upcoming update. The patch will be released in the week starting on July 24.
Issues to be sorted by the upcoming F1 23 patch
The development team at Electronic Arts is ready to fix the following issues faced by players of the popular motorsport sim. Players unable to connect to a LAN lobby will have a greater success doing so after the next patch. Access to the ‘Rival Telemetry’, which currently appears greyed out in Time Trials section, will be made available. The incorrect timings in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain Grand Prix races will also be fixed.
Furthermore, AI difficulty, even at the highest levels such as 101 to 110, which players have reported as easier than expected, will be fixed and upgraded to offer more competitive experience. On the other hand, players’ complaint of qualifying practice programs being unrealistically hard in the Career Mode is also set to be resolved. Some players that have a large number of online friends have also mentioned that their EA friends list is shown empty at times. This issue is set to be fixed in the next F1 23 patch.
F1 23 devs are also fixing the unavailability of hard tyre after sprint races in the game’s two-player career mode. Apart from that, timer issues while spectating the qualifying sessions will also be resolved.
General issues currently under investigation by F1 23 devs
Players have reported that at times, the options such as lens flare, saturation, contrast, and brightness are not working for them in the game’s photo mode. Apart from that, the developers are also working on removing the jagged or pixelated texture effect seen on Halo (the protective barrier that prevents debris entering the cockpit of Formula 1 racing cars) in night races. Furthermore, the developers are also fixing the problem faced by players trying to turn off the equal performance in the LAN mode.
Some of the other general issues being fixed include fixing the framerate drop experienced by players while driving through smoke. The F1 23 devs are also hard at work to fix various types of Force Feedback issues faced by players using different types of platforms. The most notable among them are players with Thrustmaster T300 on PC, and Logitech wheels on all platforms.
PS5 and Xbox issues under investigation
Some PS5 players have reported that the display is too dark after turning on HDR mode for certain in-game menus. Furthermore, for both Xbox and PS5 users, certain sponsor boards in matches taking place in Singapore remained unlit in night races. These issues are also anticipated to be sorted with the next update. The development team has also mentioned that they are working on making the Logitech True Force available for players using Xbox consoles.
