Feel the Enduring Spirit in new game mode and on Fuji Speedway for GRID Legends today

From Press Release:

Redwood City, Calif. – October 25, 2022 – Codemasters™ and Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today release Enduring Spirit*, a new multi-class endurance racing game mode for GRID™ Legends. The story-based and cross-platform multiplayer DLC introduces a new game dynamic where drivers compete in a long distance race format putting their skills and endurance to the test. Featuring the iconic Fuji Speedway circuit, players can battle for glory by racing four new cars as they navigate this legendary location and its four new routes.

The new game mode invites players to race as ‘Driven to Glory’ story mode character and prodigy driver Lara Carvalho alongside racing daredevil Yume Tanaka at the inaugural Seneca ‘GRID of Legends’ tournament. The narrative will develop over eight themed story experiences and story events. Enduring the heat, finding balance and harmony are key for players to claim victory.

This mode turns up the excitement and allows players to race for longer and up to five classes at the same time. The four new vehicles joining the eclectic roster include high-powered monsters like the Bentley Speed 8, Bentley Continental GT3 and BMW V12 LMR, and the nimble and agile Autozam AZ-1 Mazdaspeed Kei. Three new sponsored Career Events and a host of icons, liveries and banners for in-game use will also be available in this pack.

“Endurance racing is one of the most challenging and unpredictable motosport formats, and it requires the driver to be at one with the car,” said Paul Lovell, Senior Games Designer at Codemasters. “We are excited to bring this to life in our new DLC, together with the legendary Fuji Speedway circuit. With high-speed straights and technical tight turns, we are confident players will enjoy competing with friends and claiming victory in the foothills of Mount Fuji.”
