By Sean Carey,
UPDATE: The new DLC achievements for GRID are now live on-site.

Original Story: Season 3 kicks off in GRID on April 15th and brings with it not only a bunch of new content but nine new DLC achievements worth a total 315 Gamerscore. These achievements relate to Season One, Two and Three, so you're going to need to have purchased each Season or the GRID Ultimate Edition for all of these to be obtainable.


Several new cars and a new track are coming to GRID in Season 3. Players who purchase the third Season or who own the Ultimate Edition can take to the driving seat in the Ferrari FXX-K Evo, Koenigsegg Agera RS, Koenigsegg Jesko, and the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 SuperSport. The Suzuka Circuit is free to all players and features six routes that can be played in all of the nine different weather conditions GRID has to offer.

Two bonus cars will also be made available to all players. The Honda NSX-GT and NISSAN GT-R Racing Car (GT500 Spec) can be purchased by anyone who owns a copy of the game using in-game currency. These cars can be used in Multiplayer and Freeplay Modes.

Season 3 also adds 33 new career event 14 new liveries with six livery patterns. Multiplayer and Freeplay will also see a significant change. The GRID team has been listening to community feedback, and after some rigorous testing, has changed the number of credit rewards received in both modes. Players will now receive up to ten times the previous amount offered.

The new achievements require players to beat lap times with specific cars on individual tracks from each Season. Game designer, Bradley Whelan said that both human and AI testing was used to match the achievement times and their difficulty. "We needed to have a broad range of test results using both human and AI resources.

"For our testing, we gave the track and car combinations to both QA and the development team which included all levels of racer; from the casual player to the hardcore driving enthusiast, to gain an understanding of the range of ability. We then took advantage of our AI by getting some simulated times for matching difficulty levels. This data was then broken down into averages and ranges and analysed by the design team to find the optimum times for each level of achievement. Once done, these times were then checked by QA, and the final tweaks were then made so that they all felt optimal."

For each Season, three new achievements will be added with a total of 105 Gamerscore. In total, the update will add nine achievements worth 315 Gamerscore.
