    Welcome to the new GRID

    So, team. Anything interesting going on this week? 😉 Hey all - Chris here from the Community Team. It's an absolute pleasure to say that GRID returns with a brand new game, launching this September! http://www.codemasters.com/announcing-grid-coming-september-2019/ As the above news post covers, we're taking the essence and successes of the GRID franchise and bringing it into the modern day. Multiple disciplines and race styles to master; a stunning and broad selection of cars to tame; wheel-to-wheel racing across all corners of the globe. All that and much more is in that news post, including how we're partnering with a certain Spanish motor racing icon... The new GRID trailer was also revealed yesterday on IGN - the world's largest specialist gaming publication: https://www.ign.com/videos/2019/05/21/grid-reveal-trailer Some in-game screenshots are also doing the rounds; I've attached a couple of personal favourites to this post! I'll be handling a lot of the community and social aspects of GRID, and will endeavour to be on the Forums as much as possible to help you guys with information, feedback and jumping on the hype train with you all. As someone who's been obsessed with this franchise ever since a young Nathan McKane rose from a troubled childhood to the top of the motor racing world, it's a massive honour to help you all enjoy the next iteration of the franchise. Having seen and played GRID for a while now, I'm certain it will live up to the name it holds - and then some. Thank you. What are you most excited/interested about with the return of GRID? Let us know! 🙂
  2. The title says it all 😉 post photos and videos from your favourite GRID races, achievements and moments, to show off your style and maybe even feature on GRID socials! Make good use of the Replay options and multiple camera angles to nail that perfect shot 🙂 We're kicking it off by showcasing a couple of our faves so far from @torque99uk 📸
  3. Hey all, Alongside the usual tracking of your feedback regarding in-game content, I'm also keen to see what you'd like added to GRID! Whether it's modes, features, a new option in the menus, or a car/circuit, feel free to drop your suggestions into here, which I'll then collate and regularly run by the GRID team. Obviously no guarantees that the suggestions will turn into in-game additions, but stuff like this really helps us know where to focus our efforts for future GRID content. Thank you 🙂
  4. CREATE. SHARE. DISCOVER. Welcome to Playgrounds. Introducing DIRT 5’s Playgrounds mode – the groundbreaking, brand new feature coming to all versions of DIRT 5, launching from October 16. Playgrounds combines creativity and community for totally new experience for the franchise, as you design, upload, browse and play on player-made racing arenas. Check out the official Playgrounds trailer for DIRT 5 below, featuring some studio-made Playgrounds arenas and a first look at the creation and browsing options: Whether you choose the Arizona desert or the Cape Town Stadium in South Africa, in Playgrounds you are given a blank canvas and a huge suite of tools and objects – from dirt kickers, jumps and platforms, to loops, buses to leap over and rings of fire – to construct the racing arena of your dreams. The possibilities are endless for you to get creative, with three different event types to build your Playgrounds for: Gate Crasher, Gymkhana and Smash Attack. Upload your Playgrounds to DIRT 5’s online roster, where all players can use filters to search through every uploaded design. Find sections dedicated to the highest-rated Playgrounds and studio-chosen designs, and post your best times and scores to a dedicated leaderboard for every single arena. That’s a small summary of this huge new feature, so we’ve created a detailed walkthrough of everything you need to know about Playgrounds before jumping in. “Playgrounds is something we’ve wanted to share for some time. It’s unique for the DIRT franchise and, with endless possibilities, we can’t wait for our players to get creative,” said Robert Karp, DIRT 5 Development Director at Codemasters. “We still have more to come so keep your eyes peeled for more exciting DIRT5 news.” Playgrounds adds an entirely new way to play DIRT 5, alongside the story-based Career mode, four-player split-screen, offline custom event creator, online 12-player action and more features, including a livery editor and photo mode. It’s all set in an amplified off-road racing world, with a vibe that encourages fun and constant action. DIRT 5 launches on October 16 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, followed later this year by next-gen consoles. Players on current-gen consoles are entitled to a FREE upgrade to the Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 version, which include 120fps modes. Pre-order DIRT 5 Amplified Edition for three days early access, exclusive cars and the keys to every single post-launch addition to the game! dirtgame.com/dirt5 Oh, and finally… you did watch the trailer until the end, didn’t you? 😉

DIVERSE CAR CLASSES DIRT 5’s features trailer shows off an array of off-road cars that you’ll take the wheel of – from iconic rally and modern rallycross machines, to an awe-inspiring rock bouncer, to a frankly bonkers 900bhp sprint car! Earlier this month we gave full details on every car class in DIRT 5 – head here for our extreme showroom tour. OFF-ROAD RACING VARIETY That covers where you’ll be going and what you’ll be driving, but what kind of amplified racing is waiting for you in DIRT 5? Here’s a full breakdown of each event type available in offline play: Ultra Cross — Mixing multiple terrains, unpredictable circuit design and challenging bends, Ultra Cross is your classic rallycross-style event, turned up to 11. Expect close pack racing, crossovers and incredible environments for these action-packed, circuit-based races. Rally Raid —These point-to-point events are classic DIRT – thrilling routes through natural landscapes, where bravery and precision are key, as you’re behind the wheel of machines built for extreme off-road racing. High-speed sections, jumps, route splits and more keep you on your toes from start to finish in every Rally Raid event. Landrush — Circuit-based events that are not for the faint of heart! Rough terrain, jolting jumps and technical sections are the order of the day for Landrush, taking place on either dirt or snow. Expect extreme weather and changing track conditions to mix things up big time in these pack racing events. Ice Breaker – Minimal grip, maximum fun. Ice Breaker challenges you to master short circuits that take place entirely on ice, with flowing turns and idyllic environments. Throttle control, precise drifting and momentum are key to mastering this brand-new experience for the DIRT series. Better get your skates on! Stampede — Hard, unforgiving natural landscapes, built for rough-and-ready machines with suspension and shock absorbers galore, Stampede circuits are tough, to say the least. Unmarked routes with major undulation over mud, sand and plenty more, buckle up for some serious pack racing fun with Stampede Path Finder —You’ve never seen this kind of event before in a DIRT game. Path Finder lays down the gauntlet with some seriously hardcore off-road terrain, steep jumps and rock-strewn paths. Here, it’s not just about speed – it’s about strategy and survival. Use your rock bouncer to overcome these incredible single-car events against the clock. Sprint — Here’s our event type built specifically for DIRT 5’s bonkers sprint car – 900bhp, huge wings, different sizes for all four wheels. Learn to tame this beast on our oval and circular tracks, with constant drift control required as you tear up the track in these unique multi-car races. Gymkhana — It’s back! Jump, drift and donut your way to success in these high-octane stunt arenas, purpose-built for your automotive antics. Get sideways and airborne, and string together your moves to trigger multipliers and hit the target score within the time limit. Need we say more? Time Trial — Feeling extra competitive? Time Trial lets you take any circuit or point-to-point event and make it just you against the track – oh, and everyone else who’s ever raced the same scenario. Lay down your best times in the single-car mode, and rise up that scenario’s global leaderboard. We haven’t even talked about other features in the trailer, such as the livery editor and photo mode, which we’ll dive into more before launch. Then there’s the split-screen action, with local play for up to four players in offline modes, including Career! Make sure you’re caught up on all the details of DIRT 5’s star-studded, story-driven Career with our deep dive.

Whilst we’ve jam-packed the DIRT 5 features trailer with content and details, don’t think for a second that we haven’t got more to reveal between now and October.

  8. Hey all, This is a thread that offers GRID players on Google Stadia a dedicated area to send over feedback - whether it's general thoughts on the game, issues you're experiencing, or suggestions. We'll be tracking this thread very closely from launch (November 19) and look to work closely with Google and, if required, address any concerns players have. Comments/messages from non-Stadia players, or comments not relating to GRID on Stadia, will be removed to help us track feedback. Thank you 🙂
  9. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dVtuX6L2Wo DIRT 5 takes a legendary off-road racing series to new heights in all ways – including its most ambitious Career mode ever, featuring voice acting icons Troy Baker and Nolan North. In this special DIRT 5 video, Baker, North, the in-game podcast hosts from car culture channel Donut Media, and Codemasters’ Dialogue Producer Olly Johnson break down the narrative, characters, storytelling process, and the unique recording approach that brings DIRT 5’s Career mode to life. With our new video also comes to the reveal of October 9 for DIRT 5's launch on current-gen consoles and PC, followed by next-gen consoles later this year!

  10. During DIRT 5’s reveal in May, we gave you a taste of what to expect in Career mode and promised a star-studded story within a huge mode with player-driven progression. Now, it’s time to tell all. Let’s take a drive through the Career mode of DIRT 5, stopping to check out a few new in-game screenshots along the way… OWN THE SPOTLIGHT In an off-road racing world full of superstars, DIRT 5’s Career tasks with you standing out above the rest, and making sure nobody ever forgets your name. The player is dropped into a world-renowned off-road racing series that delivers constant extreme action, continent to continent, in all manner of amplified events. As you begin to get your feet wet and make a buzz in the racing scene, you catch the eye of Alex Janiček – better known as AJ, voiced by the legendary Troy Baker. An undisputed superstar and fan favourite in the world of DIRT, AJ quickly takes you under his wing, showing you what it takes to rise to the top of the sport he has dominated for years. You’re not the only new racer making a splash, though. Enter Bruno Durand – the ultra-competitive, cold, calculated veteran, voiced by none other than Nolan North. A champion in other off-road disciplines, Bruno’s talent and star power mean a clash with AJ is inevitable, but the fallout from an epic race between these two icons lays the foundation for you to create your own legacy in the sport. The entire story, your journey, and much more are covered in depth by the DIRT Podcast by Donut Media, hosted by James Pumphrey and Nolan Sykes from the Donut crew. Their energy and excitement match the vibe of DIRT’s racing world, and between events they react to all the key moments of your story, with special guests including AJ and Bruno, W Series champion Jamie Chadwick, and gaming and car culture personality SLAPTrain. All of this comes together for a deep, narrative-driven mode that sees you rise from obscurity to infamy in an amplified racing world. Well, only if you’ve got what it takes… CHOOSE YOUR PATH So that’s the story – but how will you experience it? The Career is split into five chapters to cover the key moments in the narrative. Each chapter offers multiple paths for the player to take, meaning you can choose which events you want to participate in through the chapter. If you want, you can still race in everything there is to offer, which is over 130 events across nine different race types, featuring every location in DIRT 5. Complete races to open new events in the chapter; the higher you place, the more Stamps you will earn. A certain amount of Stamps are needed to unlock the Main Event of each chapter, so the better you perform, the quicker you can progress. Main Events are the conclusion of each chapter and a tougher test for the player. Finish third or above to move onto the next chapter. But that’s not all. Complete certain objectives throughout Career events to unlock secret Throwdowns, where you go one-on-one with a fierce challenger in epic events. REPRESENT THE WORLD’S BIGGEST BRANDS To travel the world, race incredible vehicles and be part of this vibe, you’ll need sponsors. As a highly-touted rookie, the world is watching – and there are some major names that would like to speak with you… 20 real-world brands are available to sponsor you in Career mode, including the likes of Monster Energy, Sparco, Michelin, Fatlace and, yours truly, Codemasters. Each sponsor will have unique rewards when you sign with them, including an exclusive livery of that brand, stickers to use in the livery editor, and a currency signing bonus. Each sponsor will have objectives, both long and short-term, that they want you to hit in your Career. Do that and you’ll increase your Reputation Rank, which leads to an ultimate reward once you hit the top rank. Players can switch to a new sponsor whenever they want in Career, though the earlier you leave a sponsor, the less rewards you may receive, especially if you don’t meet your sponsor’s minimum race contract. So, will you stay loyal to one brand, or see what multiple sponsors have to offer along your journey in Career? The choice is yours. SHARE THE JOURNEY Wanna take some of your friends along for the ride? DIRT 5’s split-screen mode for up to four players is included in Career mode! For any of the Career events that feature multiple cars on track, each additional player takes the spot of an AI driver. They’re not just there to cheer you on, either; the highest finishing position of any player is the one that’s counted in Career, meaning you could earn more Stamps, more sponsor bonuses and more currency by teaming up. Whilst those rewards earned only count for the host player, each additional player will receive XP and currency rewards for their own accounts, which they’ll have whenever they next play DIRT 5 as the host player. Finally, the split-screen integration is a drop-in deal – so your pals can jump in or out of your Career journey whenever you want, without it halting your progression. Nice. So: a deep narrative, starring the world’s greatest voice acting talents and real-world car culture names; over 130 events and nine race types, with choice-driven progression and extra-special events; a detailed sponsorship feature with real brands and unique rewards to earn; and split-screen to share the fun with up to three friends. That just about wraps up DIRT 5’s Career – the biggest, boldest Career the franchise has ever seen. Got what it takes to ensure nobody ever forgets your name? DIRT 5 launches from October for Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam, and for Google Stadia in early 2021. Follow @dirtgame on Twitter and Instagram for news and general DIRT debauchery, use #DIRT5 to give us your thoughts, and talk to the team in the official DIRT 5 Discord server.

    GRID development team insight

    Happy Tuesday team! Whilst we're hard at work with the new GRID, I wanted to point you in the direction of some other cool content that went live towards the end of last week. Game Director Chris Smith sat down with IGN a short while ago to discuss all things GRID: the ethos, the features, the style, the influences, the lot. You can check out a written piece here: https://uk.ign.com/articles/2019/05/23/how-codemasters-new-grid-is-going-back-to-its-roots And a video piece with Chris here: https://uk.ign.com/articles/2019/05/24/the-5-key-features-that-make-grid-unique As well as some broader takes on the concept of the new GRID, there's also plenty of interesting snippets in there regarding in-game features and modes. Take a look, then tell us what you think! As I said, we're all full steam ahead with GRID work, but I'm responding to any queries on here that we have a concrete answer to. Two of the big questions we've got answers to at this point are: - YES, you can play offline. An internet connection is not required for single-player modes - The new GRID is a reboot of the franchise. We're taking plenty of inspiration, features and locations which make the GRID series so special, but it's not a remaster. This is a brand new game to sink your teeth into 😉

Our first trailer gives you a first glimpse at what you’ll take the wheel of, from extreme machines like the Ariel Nomad, to racing icons like the Lancia Stratos and modern off-road masters like the Citroen C3 R5. Oh, and each car will be visually customisable through DIRT 5’s nuanced livery editor, with more editing options than any previous DIRT game. Once you’re done designing, snap your greatest moments with a dedicated Photo Mode, capturing ever jump, scrape and slide. It’s all set in that amplified off-road world, dripping in style and giving license for you to express yourself, on and off the track. With a backdrop of infectious atmosphere and an unforgettable soundtrack, everything you do in DIRT 5 adds to the vibe. So, what will you bring to the table?

  13. Update: More progress has been made this evening regarding connection issues and most players are experiencing no issues. We'll keep working hard to further reduce connectivity errors for everyone. Thank you again for your patience on this 👍
  14. Hey all, wanted to drop something here to keep you updated on the current server/connection issues with DiRT Rally 2.0 👇 The news is similar to last night: we're continuing to see steady improvement and more players connecting in the game, but there's still work to be done. We've got multiple departments working through another evening to keep improving the situation. For anyone still unable to connect in the game, we apologise. It sucks. We'll keep pushing this forward and working hard to get more players smoothly into all areas of the game. Keep giving us your feedback as it's invaluable for us as we assess the impact of changes we make. Thank you 🙂
  15. Thank you for your patience on the connectivity issues we're seeing right now. Latest update for you: - Progress is being made and we're seeing the majority of players connect to servers - If your account is showing as having 0 Credits, these are not lost and will appear when you next connect to the server - We're still working hard and will keep you updated on DiRT channels Thanks again 🙂
  16. Confirmed: players will not lose Credits due to the current situation. If your Credits show as 0, it's a temporary error caused by the connection. Your Credits return when connected 🙂
  17. Appreciate the feedback, all, and apologies for the inconvenience. We have teams working all evening on a solution and will keep at it. We're seeing progress. Thanks again 👍
  18. Lots of work going on from multiple departments. Numbers-wise we're still seeing improvements and stabilisation but there's clearly more to be done. On the topic of Credits - anecdotally we're seeing that once you can re-connect fully, your Credits return. On my side my Credits were breifly at zero, but once I was briefly able to connect, that hard-earned moolah was back. Chasing confirmation that this is the same for all players
  19. Hi all, Chris here from the Community Team 🙂 Quick update to say that we're seeing some possible progress with the current situation. Active users is steadily rising. If anyone here does try to jump in, please let us know how you get on here, so we have more info to work on. Thank you 🙂
  20. Hey everyone, Whilst Season 2 for GRID has only just hit the track, we’re already looking towards the future – and looking at how to keep up the pace with GRID by listening to you, the players. On top of headline-grabbing content like new cars and circuits, we’ve continuously made tweaks and additions to the game that directly address hot topics within our community. Ahead of the next Season of content will be a free update for GRID. Alongside the usual technical tweaks and optimisations, we’re adding a clutch of new features that are the result of feedback and requests for players. First up, in the next update we’ll be adding an area in GRID’s profile section, that allows each player to view their own in-game statistics and accolades. Included in this area will be the total distance you have driven in the game – something that’ll come in handy to track that infamous ‘Around The Globe’ Achievement/Trophy we devilishly included… Next up: Cleaning your car. Whilst all cars in GRID are intentionally slightly scuffed and scratched in areas, to show their battle scars and the game’s action-packed nature, we’ve heard the requests to give your garage a squeaky-clean look. So, before each race event in the vehicle select menu, you’ll have the option to clean your car, if you wish. We’ve also spoken to plenty of GRID racers about the game’s car tuning options. Whilst the feedback around the variety and accessibility of the tuning system has been great, players have asked to have this option in Multiplayer, as well as the single-player modes. From the next update, all players will now be able to adjust their car’s tuning setup, whenever they’re in Skirmish. It’s another way for all players to prove their worth against the world and adds some more depth into the Multiplayer experience. Speaking of Achievements and Trophies, we have some more good news. We’ve heard the requests from players to add more of these based around post-launch content, and are working hard to add extra Achievements/Trophies to GRID, for all platforms, when the next Season of content drops. These new achievements would be split up to cover all three of GRID’s Seasons, so you’ll have scenarios and objectives to hit based around the new cars and circuits added to the game since launch. Closer to the new Season’s drop, we’ll have full details on this addition. Each of these additions are the continuation of prioritising player feedback to further improve GRID – the driving factor behind other new features, such as Session Search the option to extend race lengths in Career mode. That’s alongside 10 cars, two circuits, and other new additions since launch. Let us know what you think of the additions! 🙂
  21. Before posting - Please take a little look and see if there is already a recent thread about your issue or question. If there is, please add your comments there. If there isn’t a recent thread, then please make a new one. Duplicate threads may be closed or merged with any main threads. We may also update thread titles if needed. Please keep in mind two key points when submitting feedback/bugs/reports: - Any correct information you can provide is useful and welcomed. If something cannot be reproduced internally, it cannot be fixed, so any extra info is always welcome. - Please submit your feedback and communicate with everyone on the Forums in a polite, constructive manner. Disrespectful language or abusive behaviour is not tolerated, not acceptable, and just not necessary in any way. Let's work together to fix what you're experiencing 🙂 When making a bug report, please use the following template and with a descriptive thread title, including any pertinent information in square brackets. For Example, if it is a Multiplayer bug put [multiplayer] in the title, followed by a descriptive title. If it is a PS4 issue about audio, put [PS4][audio] followed by a descriptive title; A short description of the problem: Platform you’re on (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia): Game Version (if applicable): Game Mode, including if it was Single Player or Multiplayer (Time Trial, Career, Custom Game, etc): If in Multiplayer, how many players and how many AI?: What happened in the lead up to the problem?: If you get an error message, the exact wording of the error message you're receiving: Any accessories you are using (wheel, pad, etc): If you have any videos or screenshots, please share them. If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears: We may request more information while trying to track down bugs. If the information we request is not included in your post, we may not be able to help you further. Only one issue per thread - When there’s more than one issue in a thread it can create more work for the team, especially if we’ve already got threads about one of the issues. Please make sure that you only have one bug per thread. Any that have more than one issue may be closed with the request to create separate threads or to post in any already available. Codes appearing in the thread titles - To help the team coordinate and sort the bugs and feedback that you’re posting, we will be updating certain thread titles with codes. You don’t need to worry yourself with them, they are for the teams information only. We request that the thread owners do not remove or change the tags. Don’t worry if your thread doesn’t get a code either, we are still reading all of them.
  22. Hey all, Season 2 for GRID is rolling out globally right now for Xbox One, PS4 and PC 🙂 Xbox is already live globally; PS4 is currently live in Europe and will be global by the end of today; on Steam the Ultimate Edition upgrade is live with Season 2 in the Ultimate Edition, and will be available as a separate purchase later today. To whet the appetite even more, then awesome Don Joewon Song has put together a stunning video covering everything you'll find in Season 2... As always, once you've jumped into Season 2, let us know your thoughts!
  23. Hey all, This is just a quick message to say that we're switching things up a little in terms of the Community team's responsibilities for GRID. From now, instead of myself, @CMTGK will be your main point of contact for GRID queries, questions and feedback 🙂 This is because I'm moving onto an exciting new Codemasters project which I can't wait to reveal more on. Nothing's changing with the focus or priority of GRID; we're just moving some things around. I'll still be around and assisting with GRID where needed, and you'll certainly see me online in race lobbies! It's been a blast bringing you the news and updates on GRID, and then working with you to guide the direction of GRID post-launch. 🙂
