GRID Legends is the forthcoming sequel to one of the best racing games to release in the 2000s, GRID. The racing game features great track racing, along with solid car destruction physics and an epic crash camera. While that game is rather old, it has not stopped the franchise from returning in a good way with GRID Legends.
While GRID Legends was revealed several moons ago, it appears EA has got a great update to share today. GRID Legends release date is coming on February 25, 2022. And that is not all! It appears there is a new GRID Legends gameplay trailer showcasing some new content.
GRID Legends release date
Prior to the freshly announced GRID Legends release date, we knew that the game was due to release in 2022. Well, it turns out the game is closer to launch than we first thought. GRID legends release date is on February 25. The game is expected to launch with action racer style gameplay, along with a variety of modes. The gameplay includes a deep career mode with plenty of events, races, tracks, and other content to get involved with.
The other good news is that car fans can expect quite a lot of content when the GRID Legends release date arrives. The game is confirmed to have over 100 cars at launch, though, it is no Forza Horizon 5 car launch list.
Grid Legends Gameplay
Grid Legends is confirmed to have new and exciting game modes make a return to the game. The fan-requested mode of the drift mode is going to make an appearance at launch, along with Elimination mode. As you can imagine, Drift mode is about performing some incredible drifts, while Elimination mode pits players against each other in destruction, with players dropping out. It is basically a last car standing mode.
If you’re more of a creative person, you’ll be pleased to know a race creator mode is coming out. It is not quite a unique race creator, more like a Halo Forge type deal, rather than TrackMania or GTA V levels of race customization. You should be able to modify pre-existing tracks, adding in new props, booster gates, ramps and other items, along with modifying the weather effects.
If you’re interested in the campaign, GRID Legends gameplay comes with a campaign called Driven to Glory. Driven to Glory has a narrative to it, along with the usual racing career path. You take part in the GRID World Series, a mega tournament that takes you all over the world as you can in F1 or MotoGP. Expect to see motion capture, cinematics and other realistic effects. Think of it like a FIFA career mode but for racing.
GRID Legends trailer
The GRID Legends announcement came with a brand new trailer, showcasing 17 minutes of new footage. If you’re interested in the various game modes and features listed above, you can check out the YouTube video.
Grid Legends Crossplay

The game supports hop-in and out multiplayer, offering any players across these platforms the opportunity to play the game together.
