Over on the official GRID YouTube channel right now, you can check out a special showcase of new gameplay, event types, locations, cars, and much more, with insight from Creative Director Chris Smith.
 
On February 25, GRID Legends will deliver thrilling action, incredible variety, and innovative ways to enjoy the excitement of motorsport with friends and against the world. Play together with the most social and connected GRID ever, including cross-platform play, to create unique races and battle for bragging rights. Make racing memories with a stunning variety of cars, locations, and event types. Be part of the spectacle of motorsport in a ground-breaking ‘Driven to Glory’ virtual production story, and drive on the edge of your seat through our largest ever Career mode.
 
All that is just the beginning, with plenty more to be revealed in the coming weeks. Combining fun wheel-to-wheel racing with an exhilarating sense of speed, prepare to embrace the sensation and create spectacular motorsport moments in GRID Legends!

 
Release Date
GRID Legends’ release date is February 25, 2022. This is the release date for both the standard game and the Deluxe Edition, which you can find more details on below. Both versions will launch simultaneously.
 
 
GRID Legends: Pre-Order Bonus Double Pack
Head here to secure your GRID Legends pre-order and get access to the ‘GRID Legends: Seneca & Ravenwest Double Pack’. This double pack, available on launch day to players who have pre-ordered either version of the game, unlocks four additional cars to use in Career events:
  • Aston Martin Vantage GT4
  • Porsche 962C
  • Ginetta G55 GT4
  • Koenigsegg Jesko
 
The double pack also features exclusive Career events focused on the infamous Ravenwest Motorsport, along with team icons, liveries, and banners to help you represent either Ravenwest or Seneca on the track. All of the pre-order bonus content will be available immediately on February 25 across all platforms.

 
GRID Legends: Deluxe Edition content on February 25
Players who purchase GRID Legends: Deluxe Edition get access to additional items on launch day, and a huge slate of post-launch content currently in development.
On February 25, Deluxe Edition players will exclusively receive the Voltz Pack, consisting of two cars (Volkswagen Golf GTI, Audi R8 1:1) and team liveries, banners and logos to help you rep Voltz – one of the new teams featured in GRID Legends’ ‘Driven to Glory’ story mode.
 
Also on launch day, Deluxe Edition players get the Mechanic Pass: an add-on that allows players to unlock vehicle upgrades faster. With car upgrades unlocked upon reaching total mileage milestones in a car, the Mechanic Pass multiplies your mileage counter, meaning upgrades are available faster for cars you own and race. Owners of the Deluxe Edition also have access to exclusive Challenges, alongside the Challenges available to all players.
 
 
Post-launch experiences for GRID Legends
That’s just the beginning for GRID Legends: Deluxe Edition players. Post-launch, we will be delivering a massive selection of additional experiences and content – and purchasing the Deluxe Edition ensures you have access to all of it.
 
After February 25, four huge premium DLC packs will be released, all including expansions to Driven to Glory, new cars, circuits, event types, customisation items, and more. Deluxe Edition owners will get instant access to these content packs, whilst players of the standard game can purchase separately.
 
Make sure to follow the official GRID channels on Twitter and Instagram, as well as Codemasters on TikTok, for more GRID Legends news and reveals on the way to launch on February 25.

There is one, they didn't showcase it in the preview though.

Ah yeah?
Any source for that?

I can't find anything on the official website for the game, here in the forum, through Google, nothing.
And the way this presentation was handled, showing three perspectives (front, hood and 3rd person), but not a cockpit view, looks to me they cut that out again, like they did with GRID 2 (2013).

That would be a huge bummer for me, since I don't play racing games without that anymore unless it's some hardcore fast future racer or Burnout or something like that, not a motorsport inspired arcade racer like this.

The London and Moscow-tracks had some PGR3/PGR4-vibes, wich is definitely a good thing, they look absolutely great EXCEPT these ugly animated arrow signs at every corner showing the direction, destroying the landscape a bit.
Always remind me of trashy 90s arcade racers.
Is this really necessary to show wich direction it goes in such a motorsport inspired racing game? Looks terrible.

The cars look like they have pretty simple driving physics, wich doesn't have to be a bad thing, though gets boring quickly for me.
I personally am also not interested in electric vehicles in a racing game, they just sound boring.


And instead of throwing some Pre-Order-Goodies and Deluxe-Editions already at us with such a mediocre presentation, why not actually show something, wich is unique to this game?
Why exactly should I buy this?
What makes it different to all the other is-it-arcade-no-is-it-sim-no-but-what-is-it racing games out there?

Though I saw NOTHING about the story part.
The creator part sounded like you can put some obstacles and ramps on the existing tracks and that's it.
Nothing was really shown. Give some examples?

It's definitely a good looking, action-packed racing game with focus on close racing rather than simulation.
But hopefully the driving physics are not too arcady and there better be a cockpit view.
I definitely have to see more about the career part, online-PvP and creator things are usually not my thing.

I don’t think you have any worries about the cockpit camera, Grid 2019 had both cockpit and dash cam views and would expect that to have been carried over into the new game. 
 

My only real complaints about Grid 2019 were the out the box handling/controller settings which for me needed a lot of fine tuning to get somewhat decent, plus 2019 suffered with a lack of content. 
If Grid Legends can improve both those aspects (and I’m sure this time around there’s a ton more content), then I’ll gladly grab the new game. Just really want to hear if there’s been any handling improvements compared to the 2019 game.

So, you don't know the story of Race Driver: GRID (2008) having a cockpit view, GRID 2 (2013) not having one because of excuses and GRID: Autosport (2014) got the cockpit view back because of complains?

This concern doesn't come from nowhere.
Codemasters and GRID are a combination of several consumer unfriendly decisions.
That was only a glimpse.

I’m sure @ChrisGrovesMCM could help clarify but I’m sure there’s nothing to worry about if this game builds off of Grid 2019 as a foundation.

- Cockpit cam is available for every car in the game 🙂 

- Friday's event just scratches the surface of what we have to show for GRID Legends. As we revealed the release date and pre-orders on that day, it kinda made sense to call out what players could grab, if they'd like to. Plenty more coming between now and February 25 on the story, other modes, new content, and plenty more 🙂

  • Moscow, Russian Federation or Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. (@lastbreath would love this one!)
  • London, United Kingdom or Great Britian
  • Yokohama Docks, Japan
  • Shanghai, China
  • San Francisco, California

For the record, this was the Grid 2019 track list:
Road courses (10):

  • Brands Hatch
  • Crescent Valley
  • Indianapolis Motor Speedway
  • Okutama GP
  • Red Bull Ring
  • Sepang International Circuit
  • Silverstone Circuit
  • Suzuka Circuit
  • Sydney Motorsport Park
  • Zhejiang Circuit

Street tracks (6):

  • Barcelona
  • Havana
  • Okutama Sprint
  • Paris
  • San Francisco
  • Shanghai

So the street tracks aren't all coming back. Assuming all the road courses come back, that leaves us with one missing track. Hopefully it's Spa-Francorchamps.

Ok, cool, cool.
Then it was just a really strange presentation.
Going through several perspectives accept that one was suspicious, but maybe the view isn't ready to show or it was coincidence.
Whatever.

Game is back on my radar.

  • 1 month later...

Dubai and Panorama coming back from Grid Autosport , i noticed on Steam store that the 4 dlc tracks add new locations , thats bad move as in last Grid 19' all tracks added post launch were free for all , so we dont know which of those tracks above will be free at launch and which will be added later as dlc ..

Any confirmation that custom lobbies are in game , and if yes will be at launch? (i remind you Dirt 5 has not got custom lobbies after 15 months of release date)
