F1 Manager 2023 will launch on July 31 with managers also able to play the new Race Replay mode.

The follow-up to 2022’s inaugural game by Frontier will be available on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a physical release for all console versions to follow.

The base game will cost  £44.99/$54.99/€54.99, with the deluxe edition available at a suggested retail price of £54.99/$64.99/€64.99.

Players who purchase the deluxe edition will be able to play the game four days early as well as receive an exclusive scenarios pack containing an additional 12 scenarios, on top of the three for pre-ordering.

Frontier has also announced a new game mode called Race Replay which puts managers at the heart of difficult situations and asks them to find a way to glory.

That mode will be split into two different types of challenges with Starting Grid allowing players to take control of a team of their choice in a full race which replicates the track conditions and grid positions from its real-world counterpart.

Race Moments meanwhile will drop managers in part-way through a race and ask them to achieve a set objective before the chequered flag is shown.

New scenarios will be added to the game after every race, allowing team principals to test themselves against their real-world counterparts.

The game will also feature the sporting director role for the first time, allowing fans to carefully train their pit stop crew and make sure they are at full fitness and focus come race day.
