Codies Weekly Update 22-08-14



August 22, 2014

What’s better than a normal weekend..? Yup that’s right, a three-day weekend! To get things kicked off we’ve got a jam-packed Codies Weekly Update and it starts right now!

Formula 1

This week we’re showing off F1 2014’s Red Bull Ring, a circuit that’s new to the series and one we can’t stop playing in the office! This fast, undulating circuit has four flat out stretches and really is a great addition to the game.

To cap off the week we’ve also released our Spa Hot Lap which see’s Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg tackle the mighty Eau Rouge:

And to celebrate the return of Formula 1 after the mid-season break we’ve doubled the XP you can earn and knocked 50% off Williams drivers in the store for this weekend only. That’s not to mention the 10 free gems you can unlock for playing on Sunday too.



This week signals the start of the Intel Challenge, an event that will take place over two weeks with the fastest drivers on all three platforms (PC, PS3 and Xbox 360) being awarded prizes based on their final standings.

Taking part is easy, simply fire up GRID Autosport, head into the RaceNet Challenge section within Multiplayer and enter the events located within the Party Mode section.
