We’re currently not planning to restrospectively support PSN trophies – it;s not a trivial thing to add to a game.
But I do have some good news for GRID, they have started to announce some of the DLC that will be coming most likely in the upcoming months along with a very special contest
We’ve always said that GRID was going to be supported with post-release Downloadable Content (DLC for short), but we’ve never really allowed ourselves to be drawn on the content itself.
Today, We’re officially announcing the first car to be included, and offering a unique chance to make your mark on it.
That Car, the first of several officially-licensed cars to be included in the pack, the McLaren F1 GTR (for aficionados, that’s the early short-tail version). You’ll be able to read more info on this awesome car here in a new Car Focus article.
Now, to the competition. What we want you to do is design us a livery for the Car- an official “Codemasters Racing Team” livery. You don’t have to be a pixel-pushing whiz, we’re looking for a striking design, making good use of the shape of the car and the sponsor logo. It’s the design that we’re interested in, not necessarily the art skill used to get it across. The base colours are fairly free- you can see that our logo appears in lots of different colours, depending on where it appears.
The winning entry will be made into game art by GRID’s art team and will appear in the game as an official livery for the car.
How do you show us your design? You can download a template image of the car Here. When you’ve created your design (you don’t have to use the template) send it in an email to [email protected] with “livery design” in the subject line.
The closing date for the competition is the 25th of July.
The Prize? In addition to a load of GRID swag, you’ll also get a framed high-resolution render of your car as it will appear in the game. And of course, the privilege of having your design work featured in the world’s greatest racing game. (subject to approval).
