Leading up to a February release, Codemasters has released another trailer, this time featuring gameplay from the story mode.
GRID Legends is scheduled to be released on February 25th, and Codemasters is offering the public an advanced look at gameplay from the story mode.
GRID Legends will offer players the chance to play the Driven to Glory story mode, which puts you in the role of Driver 22, who signs on as the second driver for the Seneca Racing team. You'll need to build your reputation by performing well on track. The plot is described as a "classic underdog tale".
This plot seems quite close to the story offered in F1 2021's Braking Point, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, since Braking Point was a highlight of last year's F1 game.
The most recent preview offered by Codemasters shows how the actors playing the central characters in the story will be shown in mixed reality cutscenes rather than animation. Much of the story seems to focus around the paddock and offices of the Seneca racing team, which should be a great way for players to immerse themselves in the many facets of auto racing.
There is also a lot of gameplay shown, which seems similar to the previous GRID installment. The racing action seems to favour high amounts of action rather than a pure focus on realism, which is an approach that should appease the existing fanbase for the series.
