GRID Legends v1.09 update improves steering wheel compatibility

Version 1.09 for GRID Legends was released on Thursday (21st April) with further improvements for the latest game in the GRID franchise.

One of the biggest additions in the patch includes further wheel support for GRID players using the Thrustmaster T248 and the Fanatec CSL DD.

Aston Martin Vantage GT4 GRID Legends

Particularly for the T248, both the PlayStation and Xbox editions of the wheel have been given native presets. With the CSL DD, well now the wheel is properly recognized for racers on PC and on Xbox too.

Another refinement is enabling the ability to capture screenshots, record footage and stream when HDR is switched on. The Nemesis performance of your rivals should now also be more logical, with them not becoming in that state for now clear reason.

As it stands, some users are still reporting issues with Sponsor Objectives, a strange quirk that has been present since launch.

The previous patch, v1.08, which was released just a few days ago on 19th April 2022, included the option to purchase the Seneca and Ravenwest Double Pack, which was a pre-order bonus when the game was initially released. The pack includes:

  • Aston Martin Vantage GT4
  • Porsche 962C
  • Ginetta G55 GT4
  • Koenigsegg Jesko
  • Exclusive Ravenwest-focused career events
  • Exclusive Seneca and Ravenwest team icons, liveries and banners
