Codemasters have updated Grid Autosport today with a couple of additional game features and fixes for a selection of bugs. The patch is available now, and should download automatically through Steam.

A Time Trial mode has been added to the game, although only for a limited selection of the available Grid Autosport tracks. Alongside that, the ‘Advanced Controller Options’ should now be available for all devices, not just those that were officially supported at launch. I’m not too familiar with what that means, but I’m going to assume it’s something to do with racing wheels.

The full list of changes is below. My favourite is probably “Removed instances where ghost entrants could appear within RaceNet Challenge Events.” That’s like, afterlife discrimination, man.

  • Feature Addition – Time Trial mode implemented for GRID Autosport.
  • Feature Addition – Advanced controller options made available for all devices, not only devices that are officially supported.
