Swap between various Game Modes

Your racing experience in GRID Legends isn't confined as you can choose from three sets of major game modes, namely Story, Career, and Social. While the Story mode gives you a taste of everything the game has to offer, you can improve your driving skills in Career races.

The Driven to Glory documentary-style campaign has 36 missions that introduce you to the motorsport scenario. On the other hand, Social allows you to play multiplayer races against real-world players and your friends.

Change the Difficulty Level

If you are new to the GRID franchise and finding the gameplay unfavorable, try changing the difficulty settings to Easy or Medium. This allows you to grasp the game's key support features, such as Assists, Flashbacks, Racing Line, and Damage Level.

Modify the Controls

While the default in-game controls for controller devices are suitable for most players, keyboard controls aren't great at all. You can change the input to your preference in the Options menu.

Use the Race Creator

Although Story, Career, and Social modes are sufficient to keep you engaged for a long time, Race Creator in GRID Legends allows you push the game's limits. Here, you can create your own race by hand-picking your favorite car classes, location, conditions, modifiers, and much more.

Complete Objectives and Sponsorship Events

Objectives are certain in-game challenges that you need to complete in order to unlock items, which can be anything from new cars to new to new race formats. For instance, the Opel Astra V8 Coupe car can be unlocked by completing the TC-G Event 1.

Furthermore, Sponsorships available in the Team menu can be utilized to achieve even more rewards. Track and complete a sponsor's objectives to unlock their sponsored race under GRID Challenges in the Career menu. Participating in these races will grant you unique in-game items.

Upgrade your Teammate and Mechanic Skills

Teammate Development and Mechanic Development are the two upgradable skill trees available in the Team menu. Spending money on these skills improves your race performance, earnings, and XP gains.
