    Hey all, Wanted to let you know that the first patch, or 'hotfix' for GRID has rolled out today on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Below in italics are the official patch notes: This patch consists of visual improvements and some fixes, including: Multiplayer Resolved issue of players starting races early, or not at the same time Resolved issue of player losing control in Quick Match – Time Attack events Visuals Fix for HDR rendering, causing grading to work incorrectly General Resolved issues that were causing game crashes, including from the live results screen As I mentioned last week, this is the first of multiple steps we're taking to make some in-game tweaks and improvements, a lot of which is based on feedback from you, the players. A new patch is in the works that aims to cover more community-reported topics, so as soon as we have the confirmed patch notes for that, I'll pass them on. Thank you 🙂

    Bad news... another 6 years with copy paste games, not fixing important issues, ignoring their customers

    ok, lets talk honestly and frankly. I don't want to be rude but this game is the worst of the GRID serie. To me, it's the most disappointing game since a very long time. I was expecting A LOT (and I guess, I can speak for everyone) for this game. Can we talk about the poor reviews on this game on Steam ? More negative reviews on Metacritic. I don't understand why there is such a gap between press media reviews and players reviews. Everything is missing in this game You can't tune your car whatever you want You can't paint your car whatever you want (seriously, same decals from GRID2) You can't choose your sponsors you can't paint the rims you can't choose the race length Top tiers cars / low tiers cars > means that only few cars are useful (basically, on every races, players will choose the same OP cars) Nemesis thing is useless AI is terrible, even more terrible in MP. AI cuts you, rams you and you get out of the track. single player is atrocious, no real team management Car selection is slow and tends to bug Easy, Normal and Hard are way too easy Very Hard is someday too easy, someday way to hard No drift Ridiculous amount of cars Cars handling is terrible (the R26 omg 😐). Some cars are way too drifty You can't tune your cars between online races (seriously ..?) No tire/fuel management (who cares since there are only 3 laps lel) race commentators are useless (and their voices in the french version.. omg please make them shut) Im still waiting the super awesome crash from AI. They just drive in straight line ... No custom online races (+AI in MP), MP is a joke Im surely missing other things. What were you thinking CM seriously ? this game is still in beta, but a beta sold full price. Do you seriously think that your game can compet against Forza, GT, Project Cars, NFS ? You guys planned updates on the game. OK. Why not .. but these updates will be contents that you should already be in the game. it's a shame. It's a shame coming from a company well known for their racing games. I'll just wait until NFS Heat (preordered it as well) is out and I'll put this GRID game somewhere and pretend it never exists.

    Hey all 🙂 Quick update on the status of the next patch: it's currently going through tests internally ahead of submission, and I'm putting together the official patch notes with the team as we speak. From super-minor stuff to plenty of community-reported topics, the team have managed to create a huge number of tweaks and improvements for the patch, so I'll deliver the notes as soon as they're 100% confirmed. Thanks 🙂

    October 29 was the initial expected date, however we've adjusted that as we're awaiting final sign-off from first-parties. Our update process is simultaneous across all titles (because of things like cross-platform Leaderboards etc.). We're still aiming to release this week however 👍🏻

    it just feels right, great handling, great FFB, in ya face action, it's fast... it's realistic, oh the graphics are decent to. DR 2.0 feels dry, slow and tedious? been playing WRC 8 more than DR far more rewarding in every sense. Although i do enjoy a blast on DR 2.0 i find WRC 8 is more thrilling.

    Tension seems to be running high in the Gossip thread, I suspect due to the lack of actual gossip. Probably best if you defuse the situation with some season 5 news @PJTierney...

    Chris I know you know this and it has been logged. But I'll repeat it again for this thread and anyone reading: Please remove ai from quickmatch. That is the biggest problem by far with the game. It is not only killing off the online community of players that have purchased the game but also causing potential customers to avoid this title. No one wants to see that. This is a must have fix as soon as possible. It should never have released like this. You cannot have multiplayer without players. The usual CM custom public lobbies are also sorely needed so players can play what they want. Same as every previous GRID and DiRT title. Thanks again. ps. Once decent online is implemented we need cross play. Xbox, PS4, PC and Stadia! More players = more longevity = more $$ = selling future titles too! If the game stays as is it will die and CM will lose even hardcore GRID fans for good. It has been hugely disappointing so far.

    No. 30 FPS is always pretty bad.

    I'm sure that air atmospherics are simulated in this and other major driving games or else the cars will not be able to move through the ether and downforce will not work and tail pipes will not combust nor will we get kick plate sparks or rain for that matter. I recall when Playground Games made FH2 there was much talk about earth atmospherics being a major part of the construct of the that game. One of the devs even discussed the emulation of "Rayleigh scattering" being responsible for the color of the sky. So I'm thinking that the composition of air ( 78.09% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, 0.04% carbon dioxide, and small amounts of other gases) is simulated in this game and that changing the composition of it for Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez due to its elevated sea level would be second nature. Wind and air atmospherics should definitely be part of this game, if isn't already, which I'm kind of sure it is.

    That's why I think these things should always be an option. I remember how Grand Prix 2 in the 90's had an option for random mechanical problems for the player. While Codemasters won't do it because "not everyone likes that" 🙄

    It shouldn't have taken literally 4 months to get an option to disable the mid-season transfers (or AI transfers outright). 🤣 Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to actually have the ability to play the game I bought in June now the way I'd like, but it's a bit like congratulating someone for buying you sugar from the shop... that you asked for two weeks ago. It's a bit late for it now.

    Sure everyone knows this but judging by the thread, I guess I need to reiterate: - Abusive, disrespectful, personal comments towards other members of the Forums (including Codies staff) is not accepted; warnings and bans can be (and have been) issued for this behaviour. Said it from the start: there's simply no tolerance for it here. It's totally unnecessary. - Just as importantly: ALL feedback on the game (positive, negative, everything in between) is not just welcomed - it's encouraged. We need that feedback to know where to focus our efforts and make improvements where needed. A quick glance of the Forums will tell you that we don't shut down negativity. Whatever your thoughts are, please keep them coming - in a manner that, again, respects all others and is as constructive as possible. Thank you - just about to check in again with the GRID team with the latest community feedback round-up, and get an update on the upcoming patch 🙂

    Absolutely top class Gossip thread material there Matty, A*

    I'm not so sure on free content specifics from the gossip and hints i've seen - i would say there might be some more proper DLC coming, Coley was back recording stuff and so was Phil Mills, i think we've got something coming after S4 🙂
