Grid 2 'Community Patch' adds mod support

Codemasters is adding a little something extra to Grid 2's Community Patch for PC players: mod support.


Codemasters has already promised a ton of new content in the upcoming Community Patch for Grid 2, including the Demo Derby mode, Hardcore online playlist, and an increased level cap. But it turns out there's yet another feature slated for this big update: mod support.

"We understand that there's a talented, vibrant and creative modding community out there working on our past and current titles, whether it’s new custom liveries or various colors of tire smoke and other creative endeavors, all accomplished without official support," Codemasters wrote on their blog (via Videogamer). "These things don't go unnoticed at Codies and the whole team enjoy seeing what you guys come up with."

The Community Patch will feature basic support for mods and a feature that creates a separate save file when using them. This represents somewhat of a change from Codemasters' previous philosophy of preventing mods, as a defense against cheaters. In that same spirit, online play, leaderboards, achievements, and RaceNet functionality will be disabled while using a modded save file. Modding is a feature that will only be included in the PC version of Grid 2.

There's no solid deployment date for Grid 2's free Community Patch, but Codemasters notes that "significant movement" should begin in the next week.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
