There are times when GRID Legends is a bombastic, panel-rubbing, adrenaline shot, and there are times when it feels like a re-heated takeaway.
The repurposed content and vehicle handling can feel a little old-hat to those who have played the previous GRID games, but if you haven’t, then here’s a fun, accessible, racing game best served with a DualSense controller.
There’s a story to play through, as Seneca Racing take on the evil might of Ravenwest, plus a lengthy single-player career with car upgrades and cross-platform online multiplayer to dive into once complete.
There’s a cool selection of licenced real-world racing cars too, think Renault Laguna touring car and Lotus GT1, a race creator that allows you to add ramps to a street circuit, at night, in the snow. Just don’t try to take it seriously, okay?
GRID Legends can be downloaded by those who subscribe to even the entry-level PlayStation Plus subscription tier – needed for online gameplay – on either PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 from Tuesday 2nd May until Tuesday 6th June 2023.
Chivalry 2 and downhill mountain-biking racer Descenders will also be part of the line-up. GRID Legends is already part of the separate EA Play subscription on PlayStation, which in turn is included in the top tiers of Xbox’s Game Pass service.
