Grid Legends: Edge-Of-Your-Seat Motorsport Action

Okay, that’s the big news and official stuff out of the way. What we really wanted to tell you about is exactly what separates Grid Legends from the pack. For nearly 25 years, all the way back to the days of TOCA Touring Cars, the Grid series has excelled on the track. We’re all about delivering instant thrills and iconic racing moments for anyone who wants to jump in an amazing car and hit the loud pedal. With Grid Legends, we believe that approach isn’t just maintained – it’s taken up another notch.

Embrace the sensation of racing at the highest speeds, in the world’s most incredible cars, through stunning locations, with action and drama everywhere you look. Every race in Grid Legends comes ready with jaw-dropping moments and gameplay designed to constantly deliver that intoxicating thrill of motorsport. Whether it’s a huge collision to dodge, a daring overtake through a night-time storm, jumping off a ramp in a huge truck, or trading paint with a Nemesis, Grid Legends lives by memorable moments on the track. Race on the edge, forge new rivalries, battle for glory, and bask in the atmosphere of exhilarating racing.

More Racing Variety than Ever

Nailing that racing experience comes with the types of racing you can compete in, and the variety of vehicles at your fingertips. In Grid Legends, we’ve expanded both of these areas to deliver even more choice and unpredictability. Your traditional circuit and point-to-point races are joined by new and returning modes that turn up the drama and action – like Elimination, where the slowest drivers are gradually removed from the race until one driver is left standing (or, well, racing). We’re introducing Boost races for all-electric car classes, where drivers can pass through ‘gates’ on the track to earn a surge of power, for players to tactically deploy. Dedicated drift events also return, challenging you to get seriously sideways and chain those slides together to rack up a huge score.

To make those events really sing, you need a large, yet carefully crafted roster of cars – and that’s exactly what Grid Legends is bringing. Spread across nine defined categories and well over half a century of racing, our selection of machines is a thrill-seeker’s dream. From modern motorsport champions, to classic American muscle and JDM tuners, single-seaters, big rigs, trucks, electric hypercars, legendary prototypes, and so much more, the Grid Legends car list is all killer, no filler. Upgrade, visually customise, and tune them all to create a dream garage of racers, ready for any of the incredible events we throw at you. 

Grid Legends Race Creator: Design the Ultimate Race

Indeed, there will be hundreds of bespoke events to take on in multiple modes – but we know that this simply isn’t enough. Using Grid Legends’ Race Creator, players can design their dream motorsport event, with all of the cars, classes, event types, and locations at their disposal.

Set the weather conditions, race distance, and number of cars on track, and pit different categories of car against each other for some truly wild racing. If you want hot hatchbacks against big rigs, in the snow, through the streets of London, for 50 laps, go for it! Create something truly unique and save it so you jump back in at any time – or use the randomizer and see what chaotic events get drawn up.

The races you create are not just for you to enjoy, either. Take your custom events online and set up races with your friends, or the rest of the world, to see if they can defeat you on your creation. With online cross-play enabled across consoles and PC, you’ll have more potential opponents to race with than ever before – and near-unlimited possibilities with the events you’ll do battle in.

Keep an eye on the official Grid Twitter and Instagram channels over the next few days for a very first look at Grid Legends work-in-progress gameplay, giving you a taste of the thrilling motorsport coming your way on February 25. We’ll also have more details in the coming weeks on more features and modes, including Career, new online innovations, and the ground-breaking virtual production story mode. Buckle up tight, racers – we’re just getting started!
