Codemasters is one of the oldest English companies in the gaming industry. Since 2008 the team has been engaged in a line of virtual races GRID. The series has already four games. We know that soon we will see the fifth part of the story. The developers have shown gameplay and announced the release date. The latest news about GRID Legends is collected in this article.
Cars, tracks and multiplayer mode
The developers promised players several passing modes. The main ones are the Driven to Glory storyline and career progression. The campaign covers the events of an international racing tournament. Once the story ends, the user's progress is saved. The player can further accumulate points as they automatically switch to Career. It, in turn, contains more than two hundred challenges. There's no need to get bored.
Codemasters promised that the game would be filled with a variety of content. More than a hundred vehicles will be available to users after the release. These include classic sports cars and transport that was not designed for racing. There will even be electric cars like Tesla and huge hauliers.
We will not have to worry about the lack of highways. The game will feature about a hundred locations. At the gameplay demonstration, Codemasters showed driving in London.
The developers also promised to diversify the multiplayer mode. There will be several types of competitions. And the multiplayer itself will be cross-platform. Not only the owners of PCs but also consoles will be able to take part in the race. A notification will accompany the appearance of your friends in the network.
Multiplayer competition will be possible in several modes. In Drift, players will have to maneuver around tight corners. Elimination is a classic elimination race. Electric Boost mode is exclusive to GRID Legends. We can assume that the test is associated with acceleration and nitro use based on the name.
Special mention should be made of the race constructor. Players will now be able to adjust the races themselves. The sophistication of the road, the number of turns and even the weather conditions are all determined by the user's wishes.
The game will be released for PC, Playstation 4 and 5 and Xbox One and Series. The official release will take place on the twenty-fifth of February.
You can enter the race now. The developers promise to reward buyers for the shown interest generously. With the standard and deluxe edition registration, players open up new content. It includes additional cars, events, banners and more. All of this is included in the Seneca & Ravenwest double gift set.
The expanded deluxe edition will also include new cars and customization kits. The storyline will also expand. Premium GRID Legends owners will receive four sets of add-ons. They include new stories, tracks and modes.
The first game of the series, Race Driver GRID, was released in 2008. Already then, it was adapted for most platforms. Besides PC and consoles, the race appeared on cell phones and arcades. It managed to interest the audience. The demo version of the project was downloaded more than a million times. The overall assessment of the game was predominantly positive. She even grabbed a couple of awards.
The next parts of GRID enjoyed less success. In February next year, it will become clear whether the situation has changed. Either the developers did not consider previous mistakes, or the players will have a new spectacular world-class race.
