GRID | Update 1.1 Now Available

Codemasters have released a new update for their latest arcade racing adventure - GRID. Version 1.1 comes complete with a number of fixes and improvements for the console and PC racer.

With GRID having gone on public sale to much fanfare back in September, Codemasters have remained hard at work over the following weeks looking to address some of the issues reported by the community, and the latest build release is a solid testament to the hard work the British studio have put into the title in order to bring this new update to both console and PC platforms.

Although still containing a few bugs and issues that always follow new game releases, the latest version of GRID is a rather solid platform indeed - as is to be expected for one of the most well regarded and highest profile arcade racing games of the last few years.

PC users yeah? Suspect there will be many more console players
 
Surprised player numbers are low, even if only on PC. Lots of good feedback / reviews from what I've seen. Tempted to get it on PC myself, rather than PS4...

Dirt Showdown?

It is not that Grid is bad, it is just a mediocre game compared to its heritage.
Also it is fish nor fowl, neither enough arcade nor enough sim.

Imo the best balance was the original 2008 title, Grid 2 with hind sight was the best action, Autosport tries to be the most serious, but without modding the FFB I just hate the feel.

The problem about this game is that you can reach the final five championships after just finishing less than half of the normal ones. After these you get a bunch of Ravenwest liveries and can select Nathan McKane as your teammate, which is cool - but then the whole motivation to play is gone. Also, you got less locations than in the first Grid, I'm sick of driving Sydney Motorsport Park and Brands Hatch in reverse.

Nice graphics, tracks look really good (and cars too).

I like to drive brands hatch and silverstone in reverse. I would like to see that in all racing games.

With a good ffb and less foolish IA it could play in the simracing garden.

Did they say this game will have VR? Just curious.
Just imagine if this was VR with D.R. FFB nd physics.... at least for me it would be spectacular!
  • Awesome Cars/Cae Models
  • Decent Audio
  • Cool tracks (not sure why folks always insist or real tracks... these are good IMHO)
  • Good Gameplay
Too bad the FFB is crap.... not even as good as F1 2017
