Codies Weekly Update 09-05-14
Another busy few days here at Codemasters and we have loads going on: we held our first Community Media day, the GRID team are working through the night to make GRID Autosport extra awesome, bunnies are hopping on the lawn and there is caramel and chocolate covered shortbread on the biscuit table. It’s been a good week.
Another week brings another stack of details on GRID Autosport, here’s a recap of all the latest news.
For anyone who’s been to a motorsport event, one thing that is very clear is the sights, smells and atmosphere around the track. Something we pride ourselves on here at Codemasters is the ability to bring our tracks and environments to life.
Since we announced GRID Autosport one of the most common questions that’s been popping up has been in relation to wheel and controller support. We’re pleased to confirm the full list of supported wheels and controllers, for all platforms here; PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
With GRID Autosport going for a more authentic feel, we’ve added several new features to our mechanical damage, as well as improving existing features. As a result of this, the impact of mechanical damage in the game is much more severe than in previous GRID titles.
One of the key bits of feedback we took from GRID 2 was that you didn’t care for a wide spread of pre-order bonuses, you wanted something more simple, tracks were a no-go and most importantly, you wanted something that wouldn’t fragment the Community itself…

Last week’s DiRT Rally Championship got off to a flying start and was pretty close at the top but congratulations are in order for StuntmanMike24 who finished ahead of the field with a total time of 7:24.483. The next round is now live and it’s time for a safari!

We had the caption, we had the photo, but the timing was never quite right. Then it was May 4th and it seemed like the perfect opportunity.
