GRID | Season 1 DLC is Here: Hot Hatch Showdown

Codemasters recently released their first DLC for new racing game GRID - Introducing the 'Hot Hatch Showdown' pack for the game.

Adding four brand new hot hatch cars to the title, alongside a new circuit and over 30 career events in which to participate, the new DLC has a nice amount of content for those who own the Deluxe edition of GRID - although rather curiously, the new DLC isn't available as standalone content at the time of writing...

So, what's in the pack?

Well we've got four new cars in the form of the MINI Hatch JCW, Lancia Delta HF Integrale Super Hatch, Renault S1600, and the AUDI S1 quattro Concept, all old school classics or modern twists on a golden oldies. Oh, they look pretty good too...

With regards to the new circuit, the city of Paris comes back to the franchise in this new update, with the iconic 'city of love' allowing players an opportunity to race around some iconic scenery - and this content addition is free for all players!

Check out the new trailer below:

Cool. The main selling point of the video being "unpredictable" is a little bit strange.

Great game. I really hope it carries on improving over time

As an arcade game it's bloody good, however I will hold out on all the DLc and only buy in a steam sale.

Thanks for the info Paul, but I am holding off on getting the new Grid till I see where they are going with the DLC items. I have the other GRID games which I am content with at the moment and seems to have more than what this game has. Also None of these games have VR, so I look for that feature. I do use VOPRX which enhances the 2D games to 3D and works quite well with these games. Although is is not ture 360 degree VR. So it is a wait and see still for new GRID.
 
The dlc content is bland. Not sure what happened to this game.

it is a fun game but it felt like it’s a wasted potential.
RIght.
I'm very surprised because the season 1 or even the participation of Alonso were very discreet... No so much advertising for these points.

There's a major flaw in the game: Porsche 935 at brands, THREE laps! Do you qualify and risk getting too far up front and have no race. Or start last and try to overtake everyone in just three laps?
Until you can set how many laps, the game is pretty much useless.
I've raised this issue, no response, no remedy.

Rounds increase, but laps don't! It's like here's the game !FLASH! "Did you see it? You'll get another little bit if you click again!

I agree this is the main major issue with the game... and of course the FFB. For me, if it was like DR/DR2 I'd really enjoy it much more.

That's what they did in Dirt Rally 2.0, I'm not surprised.
I completely disagree with the DR analogy. DR season 1-4 was perfect. So many developers leave out the previous tracks. I would pay double if FM7 would add historical tracks from FM4 and FM2 It would suck if we didn't have all the rallies and RX tracks in DR 2. I think the price was fir and it didn't upset the game if you choose not to buy it. So I say, please stop Whining, many of us liked it!

Now back on topic... Grid DLC is not great, but at least they incorporate it into the game's career mode. DR 2.0 did not.
