Recent updates added a photo mode, while demolition derby returned to the GRID series in the Classic Car-Nage DLC pack. The latest GRID Legends patch update (update 3.3) has arrived on all platforms, bringing a long-requested feature to Race Creator.

Multi-Round Events

One of the most requested features is the ability to create online and offline Multi-Round Events in the Race Creator. Now you can do that in the latest update.

In Race Creator, you can now select up to four events to play consecutively. Before, you had to return to the main menu and start a new event.

The first highlighted event dictates which Car Class and Options will be used for all of the events in a Multi-Round Event. From here, the location, route, and time of day can be changed in events two, three, and four, but the Car Class from the first event stays the same.

Players are randomly paired into teams in Multi-Round Events, with points awarded based on finishing positions in each event. This means if you don’t perform well in the first event, you still have a chance to win overall.

New Fordzilla event

A new Fordzilla event has also been added to GRID Legends. If you’re at Gamescom, you can try GRID Legends in the TFZ-P1 simulator for a chance to win prize. The limited-time Fordzilla event in Barcelona can also be found at the in-game Dynamic Events.
