GRID Legends: GRID With A Need For Speed-ish Story [VIDEO]

Le nouveau jeu de Codemasters, GRID Legends, a un fort parfum d’Electronic Arts : il a une histoire, si bien qu’on pourrait confondre les “légendes de la grille” avec un Need For Speed.


GRID Legends was another title that was revEAled (pardon the pun…) during EA Play Live, and it already popped up on Amazon yesterday as Project C. „GRID Legends combines everything our players love and adds more exhilarating race features, including our new epic story mode.

We’re giving players more variety and choice, whether that’s creating their ultimate races using our race creator or bringing back the community-requested Drift mode. This is just the start of the journey, and we can’t wait to reveal more in the coming months,” said GRID Legends director Chris Smith in a press release.

Here’s the game’s overview that feels a bit like Need For Speed: „GRID Legends is a high-stakes driving experience that combines thrilling motorsport action, incredible race variety and an immersive story that puts the player at the heart of the action. Featuring the series’ renowned race handling, GRID Legends delivers exciting, unpredictable racing across traditional race tracks and city circuits. The game also boasts a race creator that will enable players to select mixed-class vehicles and battle across all circuits, including new city locations, London and Moscow.

The legendary GRID World Series returns and, this year, players are front and centre in a fly-on-the-wall documentary that captures every moment on and off the track. Drivers encounter fierce personalities, internal team politics and the infamous Ravenwest Motorsport, which hopes to take a sixth World Championship. Developed using innovative virtual production, which brings players closer to the action, the underdog tale features an eclectic cast, including award-winning British actor Ncuti Gatwa.

GRID Legends delivers drama across every inch of the track. Unique driver personality AI creates unpredictable racing as cars jostle for a place on the podium. Compete on over 130 routes, including real-life tracks such as Brands Hatch and Indianapolis, to iconic GRID city circuits like San Francisco, Paris, and more. Race and upgrade over 100 vehicles from classic touring cars to big rigs, single-seaters, to stadium trucks. With the inclusion of the race creator, players can take their favourite mixed-class rides onto the track and battle it out online,” Electronic Arts wrote.

If they have to mention variety this often, we suspect that they have problems with that aspect. Also, if they use the term exciting, they might abuse rubberbanding. You know, when the AI blasts past you with speed neither of you were meant to ever reach, only to make your job harder… but we’ll see.

GRID Legends will launch next year on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Steam, Origin, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
