GRID Legends Releases Last Major DLC "Winter Bash" + 6.0 Patch Notes


The festive season may have ended, but that doesn't stop GRID Legends from going all in on winter racing, though.

8 new story events featured in the event featuring familiar faces from the GRID story. Predictably, most of these events will take place in snowy surroundings.

Furthermore, 3 new vehicle are added to GRID Legends car roster:
  • SRT Viper GTS-R
  • BMW 2002 TII Race Car - "Drift Tuned"
  • Bugatti Bolide

The update further includes 5 new Okutama Sprint drift routes and 45 existing routes to be edited in the race creator.

In addition, 10 new achievements can now be unlocked as well as a set of new sponsor objectives, liveries, icons and banners for customisation. Team liveries from the "Driven to Glory" story mode will also be available to be equipped regardless of the GRID Legends version the player owns.

If you own the Deluxe Edition of GRID Legends, Winter Bash will be included for free. It can also be purchased separately.

the only issue is the AI. They are too much easy,, Dirt 5 had an AI update last year, and it's very challenging, but not grid.
 
I wonder what kind of tobacco smoke those kids....maybe they could named "winter trash" Bmw 2002 from Pcars2 jumping?...Bugatti Bolide on ice? what more? a dragon flying over buildings?...this game must be great for children from 0 to 5 years, they are far far far away from what simracing communities are demanding...so sad seeing those great 3D models cars for use by this way.... they will sell a great number of this DLC on a psychiatric

I would like to apologise to anyone with an interest in motor racing games who comes here looking for information or community and read this level of trash.

Gatekeeping has a negative effect on all communities and this reflects poorly on us all.

Sim racing is a bit like the book, " If you give a mouse a cookie" I started out getting Forza motorsport on the xbox and decided to get a wheel and pedals so I could drive. SO I go and get a great deal on the G920. I soon realized If I had a wheel and pedals, I needed a chair and table to bolt it too. Then it became clear I needed a...... then a ....... and now I need.....:):):)

I wonder if the pure sim racer has really some fun...
Yes, I do...have this game installed for that something completely different and less stressful to play;)

I mainly purchased it for screenshoting as the graphics look great, sadly I 'Crash to Desktop' everytime I go into 'Photo Mode' when moving the camera into position:(...even though this has supposed to be fixed, so can not really compose any decent screenshots.

My TSXW with the Ferrari SF1000 Steering Wheel does not register with the controls so I have to use a TM TX profile and while it works it has quite spongy / floaty FFB...this game is clearly not aimed at Sim Racers

So it's only a pick up and play very rearly now.;)

Grid Legends is so fun, is a great sim, trucks racing together with karts and GT3, or jumping with a 2002 on ice muahaha, as real as real races, in the future when u will be an adult, search for true simracing experiences with Rf2, ACC, Ac, Ams2, until that you could use this Game or Pocoyo Racing game, muahaha
 
GRID was one of the series that made me love racing games, but the last 2 installments were the complete opposite.
I love arcade games, but no good arcade game has come out recently. Clunky driving physics, buggy games, useless features, and the list goes on.
I now mostly play simulators because the physics is easier to understand, more intuitive and fun than modern arcade games.

Codemasters boasts about super complex simulations on their arcade games, but all cars end up feeling the same, and terrible at that.
It's over-engineering for the sake of having buzz words on their press material, meanwhile their older simpler games feel 10x better and potentially even more realistic.
