Codemasters and EA have dropped a new trailer for GRID Legends, introducing one of the upcoming racer’s cast in the form of driver Valentin Manzi.
Manzi is the lead driver for the Voltz Racing team, one of several you’ll encounter during the game’s Driven to Glory story mode. Playing him is Sex Education star Ncuti Gatwa, and has been a great addition to the cast according to Codemasters’ John Merchant. “It was a pleasure to work with Ncuti. His portrayal of Valentin Manzi has taken our story mode, Driven to Glory, to another level, and we know his followers will enjoy racing alongside him.”
The drivers aren’t the only focus of the game, of course – it’s about the cars too. That’s why the trailer also gives us a brief look at the Tushek TS 900 Racer Pro. It’s the first time the manufacturer has appeared in a racing game, and it’s entering with a splash. It even gets a quote of its own, to accompany the gameplay footage in the video.
“With only 12 physical cars worldwide, this exclusive hybrid will become a fan favourite thanks to its handling, performance, and 380kmh top speed. The TS 900 Racer Pro is the lightest hybrid hypercar available, with every component designed to reduce weight and deliver the ultimate racing experience. The in-game TS 900 Racer Pro provides all the thrills players expect from a hypercar and will challenge the most accomplished driver across city circuits and traditional racetracks.”
GRID Legends arrives on February 25 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.
