share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

GRID Legends was released nearly two weeks ago. While it was a huge improvement over the 2019 reboot and arguably the best game in the series since the first Race Driver GRID, GRID Legends has been largely overshadowed by GT7. It wasn’t great timing as GT7 released just one week later.

Available to download now on PlayStation, Xbox and PC, update v1.06 features a long list of updates that improve the experience. One of the main improvements is the ability to disable vehicle upgrades in Race Creator if you want competitors to be more evenly matched.
