After years of waiting, GRID is back in 2022!
GRID Legends will take the franchise in a new direction, as shown off by the game's E3 reveal trailer. Something else that has been confirmed is that Legends will be coming to the next-gen consoles, including the PlayStation 5.
So, what can we expect from GRID Legends on the PS5? We've got everything you need to know right here!
Latest news - First look at Driven to Glory
We got hands-on with GRID Legends new story mode 'Driven To Glory'. This was along with some more in-depth gameplay opportunities.
Check out what we made of the story mode below!
When GRID Legends was officially revealed, it's fair to say we were caught off guard. We knew that Codemasters was going to reveal a new game, but we didn't know what. It turns out it was GRID Legends, which will be the first GRID game since the series' revival in 2019.
While it's fair to say that GRID 2019 didn't set the world alight, it was a solid entry to build on. We've also now had the news that GRID Legends will launch early next year. 25 February 2022 is the release date, so mark it in your calendars now!
PS5 graphics & sound
As we've come to expect from the PS5 and Codies, the presentation of the game looks gorgeous. When the cars are roaring through tunnels, for example, the reverberation of this noise is very tangible.
GRID Legends will run at a smooth 60 fps and in glorious 4K resolution. Features such as 3D sound haven't been mentioned yet, but headsets like the Pulse 3D are capable of this.
The magic of DualSense
PlayStation 5's incredible DualSense controller pad is nothing short of incredible. The PS5 controller is the biggest leap forward in controller tech in the history of video gaming. One of its best features is the brilliant haptic feedback vibrations.
Haptic feedback not only changes the intensity of the vibrations you feel, but also the type. It's difficult to explain if you haven't experienced it for yourself, but the long and short of haptic feedback is that you get a much better feel for the car. This in turn improves your driving, as you can get back on the throttle more effectively getting out of corners.
Adaptive triggers mean you'll also feel some resistance with braking, and then a loss of it when locking up. All of these make for a more immersive and complete racing experience.
Features and story
GRID Legends has evolved from an arcade racer to one with a proper story mode. Codies aren't messing around either, as top actors like Ncuti Gatwa are onboard to lend their presence to the game.
Without going into too much detail, you'll be battling with rival teams and drivers to win the GRID World Series and experience many flashpoints along the way.
The GRID World Series is just that as well, as you'll be globetrotting to conquer the top motorsport series out there. Locations such as Moscow, London, Paris, and the Italian Alps have all been confirmed for tracks in Legends. You'll also be able to multiclass race too, so if you want to race a truck against a supercar, you can.
