F1 2021 PS5 update removes the Ray Tracing feature for now.

Launched less than a week earlier, F1 2021 is the latest entry from the series and the first entry under the supervision of Electronic Arts. The game received mostly favorable reviews similar to its predecessor, which makes it still the best Formula 1 title in the market.

If you are playing the game on PS5, there is a new update for you that unfortunately disables the Ray Tracing feature, but it’s for good. Apparently, a number of players have been facing instability issues in the game, and Codemasters had no choice but turning off the feature until fixing the problem.


F1 2021 Update 1.04 Patch Notes

  • Addressed an issue where users would experience a corrupt save if they edited their vehicle’s livery from within the MyTeam HQ. Saves that were previously corrupted as a result of this bug will be able to be resumed after applying the patch.
  • PlayStation 5 only: We are aware of some instability within the game for a limited number of users on PS5 relating to Ray Tracing. As such, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily disable it to aid stability. We aim to re-enable this as quickly as possible, and we will provide an update in due course.

Hopefully, this is new update will be followed by a hotfix for PS5 owners as soon as possible to fix the performance issue and enable the Ray Tracing feature again.

F1 2021 is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. If you are an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or EA Play subscriber, you can play it for 10 hours for free. The game is expected to launch fully on EA Play in 2022.
