One of the most requested features in GRID Legends missing at launch is a Photo Mode. Over the last week, Codemasters has teased a Photo Mode is coming in an upcoming update. That update arrives today, adding a Photo Mode to GRID Legends for the first time in the franchise.
Photo Mode now available in GRID Legends
The GRID Legends Photo Mode is available now in a free update, allowing virtual photographers to capture picture-moment shots of the best moments of the race. It can be accessed in a variety of game modes including Race Creator.
Photos can be tweaked with a variety of options such as camera roll, depth of field, zoom, motion blur, and shutter speed to get the perfect shot. Numerous effects can also be applied such as filters, contrast, and saturation to create artistic shots. You can even adjust the lighting by changing the position of the sun.
The Photo Mode update arrives after the fan-favourite demolition derby mode returned to GRID Legends with the Classic Car-Nage Pack DLC.
To celebrate the new Photo Mode, Codemasters has partnered with Porsche, Fordzilla, The London Eye, Xite, and more to launch the GRID Legends Photo Challenge.
Running from 8 July to 7 August, new challenges will launch every two days getting players to snap shots of cars, liveries, and iconic locations. The best community images will be shared on Codemasters’ website and possibly in-game.
