As of right now, we know of a few features and modes that Codemasters is adding to GRID Legends. The headline new feature is the game’s reimagined story mode, which will feature diverse locations, powered by Extended Reality (xR) technology which is being used in many of Disney’s Star Wars projects.
This story mode is called Driven To Glory and will include racers played by well-known actors, with the first being played by Sex Education star Ncuti Gatwa, who will take part in a “classic underdog tale”.
Hopefully we will get a better look at how this new Story Mode will work in the near future.
