Electronic Arts is seemingly teasing the return of the Braking Point story mode for F1 23.
Starring protagonist Aiden Jackson and antagonist Devon Butler, Braking Point debuted in F1 2021 before being omitted from last year’s series entry.
In the video below, which replicates the style of an F1 pre-season car reveal, Butler is confirmed as the headline driver for new team Konnersport Racing Butler Global.
Based on F1 23 teasers this week, content creator Aarav speculates that the game’s story mode could see former rivals Butler and Jackson cast as teammates in the new game.
We should find out more when F1 23’s official reveal begins on Monday, May 1.
Under the terms of the deal, the Oracle Red Bull Racing driver will collaborate with EA Sports to create content across its portfolio.
Verstappen is also being sponsored by the game publisher, with EA Sports branding appearing on the chin of his race helmet during the F1 2023 season, which started in March.
