While PlayStation's Gran Turismo 7 will be getting a lot of attention in the coming weeks, Xbox is getting a new closed circuit racer this month. GRID Legends has been in development at Codemasters since 2019's GRID, and out of nowhere, its release has creeped up on us. To celebrate launch month, the developer has broken down some of the game's core features.
The 'Driven to Glory' story mode is a big deal for Codemasters, who seems to be taking inspiration from its own F1 series. There's a strong focus on following drivers around the globe, as they compete to come out on top in the GRID World Series.
However, it's the on-track action we really care about and Legends seems to building on the foundations of 2019's GRID. There's a less serious approach this time out, as the developer is bringing back drift events from older games, and adding ramps and speed boosts to existing circuits.
GRID Legends doesn't follow Gran Turismo's laser focus on realism then, but it looks like fun, closed circuit chaos nonetheless. Hopefully this one will tie us over until Turn 10 unveils its plans for the next instalment of Forza Motorsport.
Will GRID Legends hit the spot for track racing fans on Xbox this month? Let us know your thoughts below.
