The GRID series kind of, erm, fell off the grid for a while, but it bounced back with a soft reboot in 2019. Now, Codemasters is taking another stab at the sim-cade racer with GRID Legends.
Just announced during EA Play Live, this new racing title's main feature is its live action story mode. Built using a technology called extended reality, the game's narrative will play out with real world actors performing within the digital world. The story will once again place you within the GRID championship, competing against rival team Ravenwest.
Another key point in this entry is its extended range of vehicles. There appear to be more disciplines than ever, and you'll be able to pull them all into one race together; multi-class races including big rigs, open-wheelers, hyper cars, and more.
The game is due out in 2022 for PlayStation 5 and PS4. Are you looking forward to GRID Legends? Pop those helmets on in the comments section below.
If it's just on ps5 yes, if they also release on PS4 as well I'll be boycotting on principal.
I bought my ps5 to play next gen games, not games I could have played on PS4
I was confused for a moment when I read this was announced at EA Play…………………..yeah.
GRID was painfully average. Not holding my breath for this one. Wish they just remade Race Driver: Grid or used the same formula, but Codies are like Dice with Bad Company- they just don't know what made it so great...
Only good thing to come out of that hour! Looking forward to seeing more!!
this extended reality will be needing some extended storage on the ps5
@Marios-love-child If I've got a PS5 by the release date, I'll get it on that.
If I haven't been bothered, I'll be playing the PS4 one on the SSD equipped Pro.
Liked Grid: Autosport on the PS3 (post-PS4 launch) so hopefully this will be similar.
@Marios-love-child it is like it is and it will be like this until 2022/23.
At least until the nee consoles are not regularly available, publishers will drop their games on both gen‘s.
It will limit the games in terms of AI and level/map size but we still get better visuals, higher fps, faster loading times on the Ps5.
Furthermore a racing game won’t be held back so much by the old gen.
@Reeneman Yeah, kinda hard to play PS5 games when your only option is to pay a dirty scalper $1000 for the console! I would've thought they'd had better supply by now, but I guess it did take the Switch like 2 years before you could readily buy one (if we want to use Nintendo as the lowest bar to clear).
Looks cool, but I’ll be waiting for Gran Turismo 7. Only the best of the best for my PS5’s SSD.
@stinkyx I’m sure the availability will improve in 2022.
To be honest the first year of a new gen was always not really spectacular with near than zero „must-have“ titles.
It’s ok. We will see great games and more and more people will get the opportunity it y to buy one of these consoles. All fine.
The "story" looks more like actors in chairs
Damn this looks bad
@Marios-love-child Such a stupid reason there are so little PS5 around. Lets see 100 million plus PS4 players or is it 10 million PS5 already. 🤪
@Marios-love-child Damn, you'll be missing out on so much for the next 3 years.
Good grief, the live actors in NFS are the height of cringe and now we get to suffer them in GRID? Nope!
Welp...it's not Burn out, but I loved the original grid on the 360. This sounds pretty decent....I'm really liking they mentioned something about different routes during a race.
The fmv story...well, you can see EA influence here. Looks corny and bad...hopefully so bad it's good...and not just bad.
@sanderson72 An SSD makes negligible difference on the Pro... weird flex.
@PlayNation5 Sorry but you're wrong there - makes a sizeable difference, thanks in part to the Pro's SATA3 interface. Load times much reduced and the whole system seems to run fast 'n' cool.
Of course I'm not going to pretend that it's anywhere near the speed of the PS5 (be embarrassing for Sony if it was!) but quick enough...
I played through the last Grid. I hope it gets back to be like Race Driver Grid but probably not. It was the only game i knew of at the time that wen you set your audio name to dude. The crew chief and the lady in the menu would call you dude. Turn on the game "welcome back dude"
I really liked the last one did everything great arcade Racer and worked fantastic with my wheel
Just leave theat stupid round the globe trophie out please its the only reason I don't have the platinum lol lol
Definitely looking forward to this, after a fine plat achieved on controller including that awful round the globe trophy, I deleted it and completed it again with an amazing wheel set up, the closest thing to arcade racing I’ve experienced recently, be interesting to see how this one fairs
