Codies Weekly Update 08-08-14
We can’t decide on how to update you on this week’s weather; Luke is on the fence and has described it as “mixed” while I think it’s been quite nice. Not entirely sure why I keep opening the weekly update with the weather, should probably get on and start talking about the games…
This week saw the grand final of the Codies League Championship on PC and it was a tense end to the season with Apex Online Racing winning by just one point! We’re going to miss these Wednesday night livestreams. It was great fun hanging out with you all but fear not – The Codies League Championship will return!
In F1 2104 news we’re still taken back by the response from the announcement last week and we’ll have more info on F1 2014 and the next gen F1 game very soon. If you happened to miss all of the news last week you’ll find everything you need to know right here
And finally Caterham F1 Team are running a competition on Twitter where you can win a copy of F1 2014 go follow them for more info.
We released some brand new DLC for GRID Autosport this week featuring four premium sports cars that cut a stylish dash across the track.
- BMW Z4 GT3
- Hyundai Genesis Coupe
- Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
- Nissan 2009 (R35) GT-R Specv
The Coupé Style Car Pack is included for all owners of the Season Pass but can also be picked up separately for $2.99, £2.39 and €2.99 and available now on Xbox Live, the PlayStation Store and Steam.
See this rock ? This is the rock that nearly put the future of the next DiRT game into question. The story goes that while walking though the forest stages at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year a well known Frenchman by the name of Sébastien Loeb came speeding past in his Citroën DS3. In his haste he dislodged said rock from the track and sent it flying towards Chief Game Designer Paul Coleman’s head.
“Stone”bastien Loeb as it has become known now sits on a shelf in studio as a reminder to us all to not get hit by rocks.
