GRID Legends was announced by EA and Codemasters last summer, although the announcement was a little thin on specifics. Thankfully, they’ve now set a release date of February 2022 and provided a hefty 15-minute-plus gameplay video, which you can see for yourself below.
GRID Legends appears to be all about variety, with Codemasters offering over 100 vehicles ranging from F1 cars to huge trucks, 130 courses to race on, and a documentary-style story mode featuring unique staged moments on track. Speaking of which, the game’s Race Creator will allow you to construct your events and moments. Pre-orders for GRID Legends are already available, and they come with the following bonuses.
GRID Legends: Pre-Order Bonus Double Pack
The double pack 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. The following exclusive cars are also included:
- Aston Martin Vantage GT4
- Porsche 962C
- Ginetta G55 GT4
- Koenigsegg Jesko
Of course, there will be a GRID Legends Deluxe Edition for $80, which includes access to post-launch narrative extensions, some extra vehicles, and the “Mechanic Pass,” which will make unlocking improvements for your car simpler.
Players who purchase GRID Legends: Deluxe Edition gets 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.
GRID Legends drifts onto PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and PS5 on February 25 (a week before Gran Turismo 7…bold move, EA).
