when Electronic Arts Acquires Codemasters Earlier this year, they described it as “the beginning of an exciting new era of racing games and content,” and now they have announced their first foray into that new era. Grid Legend This is the next article in the Codies’ Grid series. Yes, it has all the great features of cars, races, etc. Again, it has a fairly complex story mode in appearance. See the EA Play Live trailer below.
The developers say the new story bit was shot using the same technology as Disney’s Mandalorian Extended Reality (XR). Filmed live-action, actors (such as Ncuti Gatwa, who played Eric Efion in Netflix’s sex education) perform in front of a real screen with the world of the grid behind them. It’s a bit better than the green screen because the actor can feel more absorbed in what he’s actually doing. Plus, it’s very cool to use in games!
This is a little more about what you do Grid Legend website:
“Race, upgrade and customize all of the largest car rosters in grid history, from classic tourers to single-seaters to big rigs. 130 real circuits like Brands Hatch and Indianapolis, historic grid venues, new locations and more. Compete on routes that go beyond, like London and Stadia Alpina. ”
This new grid also has a new mode. The developers mention boost modes and eliminations (although they don’t say exactly what they mean). You can also change the track status and time zone, and play with your friends online.
Grid Legend will be released in 2022 on PC, PlayStation and Xbox.
