PS Plus March shifts gears for PS5 players as F1 24 season begins

Though we're still a few months out from the F1 24 game launch date, PS4 and PS5 players can at least get into P1 ahead of Bahrain thanks to F1 23 on PS Plus.

It’s a new month, and a fresh quartet of PS Plus games have arrived on PlayStation’s subscription service. As a special treat for racing fans eagerly waiting for the F1 2024 season to begin in Bahrain, as well as the new F1 24 game to drop this May, you can get behind the wheel of F1 23 on PS4 and PS5 until Monday, April 1, 2024, with a valid sub.

As one of the best sports games out there, F1 23 still holds up despite the turn of the new season. In our F1 23 review, we hail it as “one of the best racing games” veteran developer Codemasters has ever released, scoring it an excellent 9/10 overall.

“With more content than ever before and new ways to engage, F1 23 is Codemasters’ best Formula One game to date,” we write. “New mechanics and car physics make this game a joy to play and F1 World is shaping up to be a fantastic addition to the series moving forward.”

Though most F1 fans outside those supporting Red Bull would rather forget about the 2023 season, at least you’ll be able to alter the course of history in-game. We’re still a few months away from the F1 24 release date, which was recently confirmed for Friday, May 31, 2024, by EA. As such, this is still the most up-to-date F1 experience you can get your gloved hands on.
