Codemasters and Electronic Arts release the Winter Bash expansion, which is the fourth and final content update for GRID Legends.
GRID Legends‘ new snow-themed premium content pack is now available for purchase. The Winter Bash DLC is the game’s fourth and final planned content update.
GRID Legends is the fifth game in the popular GRID racing series. It features over 130 racing tracks and over 100 vehicles. Besides being able to drive around beautiful cities such as Paris or Moscow, players are also able to design their own races with unique course layouts and challenges. Furthermore, for the first time ever in the franchise, GRID Legends includes a drama-filled story mode named Driven to Glory. Much to the delight of the franchise’s fans, Codemasters and Electronic Arts have been constantly adding content to the racing game for over a year. Alas, the time has come for its last update to arrive.
The Winter Bash DLC contains eight new exciting story events as gamers will rejoin Valentin Manzi and participate in lightning-fast races under snowy weather conditions. Three brand-new automobiles are also added to the game: the classic BMW 2002 TII Race Car, the blue-colored Bugatti Bolide hypercar, and a “Drift Tuned” version of the SRT Viper GTS-R. Drifting fans will be able to take on the slippery surfaces and rack up more points in five fresh Okutama Sprint drift races. Additionally, boost gates and ramps have been added in 45 Race Creator tracks, in order to spice up the gameplay.
Moreover, passionate drivers are now able to complete some extra sponsor objectives, unlock 10 more achievements/trophies and equip a plethora of additional customizable icons, wraps, and banners. To make the GRID community happy, a much-requested visual feature is now available in-game. Gamers can select between a Vintage 2002 Race Driver or a Vintage 2008 GRID graphical style to play the game in.
GRID Legends’ Winter Bash DLC is included in the GRID Legends Deluxe Edition of the game or can be purchased separately from the Microsoft Store, PlayStation Store, or Steam for $9.99. Deluxe Edition owners are able to invite friends to play for free, as long as both players are online at the same time.
The release of the DLC serves as a bittersweet moment for the game’s fans. Even though GRID Legends will no longer have content updates, players are excited to celebrate the winter season with the massive Winter Bash update. While it has been an incredible journey, filled with countless hours of fast-paced driving action, it will be interesting to see what comes next in the GRID franchise.
GRID Legends is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
