F1 23 Cross-platform game and dual permissions details

In addition to an updated method for collecting multiplayer safety ratings and a closed beta to test functionality, F1 23 will continue to offer a wealth of online modes and features.

Is F1 23 enabled cross platform?

Yes, F1 23 game features online cross-platform multiplayer for PC, PlayStation and Xbox. This also includes cross-generational multiplayer between PS4 and PS5 or Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Additionally, those on PC can play on Steam with those who purchased through Epic or EA’s own storefront.

This is handled through the built-in EA Friends List feature and an EA Account.

You must link an EA Account, which is free to sign up for, to your gaming platform account and add cross-platform friends through the EA Friends List.

F1 22 also featured an option to disable cross-platform online play if that’s what you prefer, and we expect F1 23 to include the same feature.

Does F1 23 come with a free console upgrade?

The Standard Edition of F1 23 does not include a next-gen console upgrade or Smart Delivery. The Champions Edition includes what EA calls Dual Entitlement for an additional fee, and that includes both versions.

F1 23 Standard Edition, no dual permission

For example, if you buy the PS4 version and later buy a PS5, your PS5 will play the PS4 version via backwards compatibility, but you’ll need to buy the PS5-specific version for F1 23 to get the most out of your new system.

The same goes for Xbox too.

For example, if you buy the Xbox One version and later buy an Xbox Series X|S, your Series X|S will play the Xbox One version via backwards compatibility, but you need to buy the Series X|S specific version for F1 23, to get the most out of your new system. Smart Delivery is not enabled.

F1 23 Champions Edition, includes double entitlement

The Champions Edition of F1 23 includes both versions of the console generation, but this is a digital-only version.

If you buy the Champions Edition on PlayStation, you can always download both the PS4 and PS5 versions.

If you buy the Champions Edition on Xbox, you can always download both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S versions.

The Champions Edition also includes the following digital bonuses, but is more expensive than the Standard Edition:

  • Three-day early access
  • Las Vegas Limited-Time Content (Pre-order before May 31, 2023)
  • Max Verstappen Racewear Pack
  • Braking Point 2 Icons and Vanity Item Pack
  • Double Permission
