Race in the moment
But hey, that’s for the future. We’re ready to give you more details right now on what makes Grid Legends a truly unique racing experience – starting with a simple question. When playing an exciting and enjoyable game, what do you remember the most? Usually these are the ones that are unforgettable moments – those magical moments when drama kicks in, danger builds up and the element of surprise creates something you want to tell the world about.
The beauty of Grid Legends is that it is designed to deliver these amazing moments race after race, day in and day out. Of course, you’ll play your part in those moments – getting behind the wheel of over 100 of the world’s greatest machines and battling for glory against 21 other drivers, on over 130 breathtaking routes. Intense pack races are the raison d’être of the Grid franchise, and Grid Legends takes it a step further. That, however, is just the beginning of how this runner consistently delivers those epic moments.
Thanks to hundreds of AI personalities, each with their own nuances and differences, and a race choreographer working behind the scenes to conjure up shocks, you’ll never know what to expect in Grid Legends.

Look for aggressive AI figures who intend to get a head start on you after trading paint with them earlier. Everywhere you look in a Grid Legends race, there is unpredictability and drama unfolding. That means more surprises and more of those unforgettable racing moments.
