For those wondering what the feature is and how it works, here's a breakdown of the team radio system in F1 Manager 2022.
F1 Manager 2022 Team Radio: What is it?
Back in June, a 24-second clip of someone playing the unreleased game went viral as it demonstrated its pretty impressive dedication to realism.
As seen in the clip, players will hear real-world team radio messages, swears included, from all 20 drivers and 20 engineers on the 2022 F1 grid as they issue commands to their team during a race weekend or as drivers react to significant moments.
The system is said to consist of over 50,000 files — something developer Frontier Developments feels is "ripe for further development on future titles."
"When it comes to our game," F1 Manager 2022 senior dialogue designer Robbie Mann said in a dev blog, "we wanted the player to feel like they were communicating with their drivers and to have some sort of tangible feedback when issuing driver commands or reacting to events throughout the race. As a dialogue team, we’re incredibly excited to help provide a truly unique experience and perspective of running an F1 team, and we’re even more excited to continue developing and growing these aspects of our game."
F1 Manager 2022 is set to release for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Windows PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store) on Aug. 30, 2022. Those who pre-order the game digitally will have early access to the game starting on Aug. 25.
