First announced back in July this year, upcoming racing game GRID Legends finally has a solid release date: 25th February 2022.
The latest game in the GRID franchise is only a couple of months away, with a release date now set for 25th February next year. February’s already a busy month; GRID Legends is going to be rubbing shoulders with the likes of Horizon Forbidden West, SIFU and Elden Ring. But if you’re a racing fan, then this will be the one to watch.
GRID Legends promises to have the biggest variety of game modes the franchise has seen yet; it boasts a fully-fledged career mode with over 250 events to take part in, a ‘Driven to Glory’ story mode, all-new Electric Boost racing, and old favourites Drift and Elimination.
We’re particularly interested in the ‘Driven to Glory’ story mode. Developer Codemasters has employed virtual production technology and sequences featuring real actors to tell an engaging story based around the race track. It stars Ncuti Gatwa, an award-winning actor you’ll recognise from Netflix’s Sex Education, and, er, Horrible Histories: The Movie (it was a good film, alright?).
But back to GRID Legends. There’s also a race creator mode, where players can think up their own events, pairing together a mix of vehicle types and changing things like weather conditions and time of day. At launch, it’ll feature over 100 vehicles and a mix of iconic race tracks and city locations to speed around.
Sound like your sort of thing? If you’re a racing game fan, this is definitely one to keep your eye on. GRID Legends is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One and PC with a release date of 25th February.
Tune in next week when we’ll have some hands-on impressions of the game to share. Until then, watch some gameplay in action in the brand new video below:
