It's not uncommon for racing games to have limited edition releases with exclusive cars or other incentives. Grid Autosport is no exception, as Codemasters has announced the a limited Black Edition which does just that. And no, it's not a coincidence the extra car is a Mercedes Black Edition.
Fortunately, Codemasters has certainly learned their lesson this time: Grid 2 was confusing cocktail of retailer-specific pre-order bonuses, meaning you could never own all the content available in one definitive release. Grid Autosport Black Edition is a much more simple proposition, however.
"One of the key bits of feedback we took from GRID 2 was that you didn’t care for a wide spread of pre-order bonuses, you wanted something more simple, tracks were a no-go and most importantly, you wanted something that wouldn’t fragment the Community itself" Community Manager Ben Walke wrote.
"All these thoughts were taken into account when devising the GRID Autosport pre-order offering, so, with this in mind we’d like to introduce you to the Black Edition."
As such, the Grid Autosport Black Edition will net you the following bonus content:
- Exclusive Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Coupé Black Series car
- Exclusive Black Edition white Ravenwest liveries for Black Edition cars
- Online premium sponsors
- 20 extra ‘Black Edition’ online livery patterns
- 10 new sponsors with objectives
