There’s nothing more frustrating than playing your favorite game online and having to wait and wait for the loading screen as everyone presses ‘done’ or because there aren’t enough people to start a game. That can really spoil the fun. In grid legends, we seek to create a seamless multiplayer experience, with less waiting and more time spent on what really matters: racing! Find it in the Microsoft Store (Argentina, chili, Colombia Y Mexico).
There are three features in particular that we are very proud of in the multiplayer mode of grid legends: Hop-in, Race Creator and cross-platform.
Hop-in does exactly what it promises. Let’s say you see your best friend online and you want to start the competition instantly. All you have to do is select that person from your friends list and choose the option to jump right into their race, taking control of a randomly selected AI driver. You’ll also be able to earn XP and rewards just like you would in standard multiplayer, just with the added bonus of bragging all you want if you finish first in the competition.
Up to 21 additional players can join the same race. This function not only applies to regular multiplayer events, you can also open the Race mode of grid legends to allow Hop-in action. With over 250 career events available, there are plenty of competitions you can enter on your own to play against dynamic AI or against friends.
Race Creator allows you to create the best racing matchups of your dreams. Ever wanted to race Hypercars against Tuners on the streets of London? How about a 99-lap marathon around Mount Panorama in classic touring cars during a storm? With over a million different combinations to choose from like ramps, lift gates, weather conditions and time of day, your only limit is your imagination.
Did you find the perfect match? Simply save that event to one of four save slots so you can come back as many times as you like.
What’s more, grid legends introduces its cross-platform multiplayer. Whether you want to show off your new Race Creator event straight out of your imagination or show all your friends your Drifting skills, no matter where you play, you can connect with your friends with the help of a single button.
Get ready for the launch of grid legends on February 25! Along with the other awesome features we’ve already talked about like the hit Story Mode: Driven to Glory – over 100 cars at launch, 22 locations and over 130 routes, you can look forward to some action-packed racing fun. See you in a couple of weeks! Find it in the Microsoft Store (Argentina, chili, Colombia Y Mexico).
