Well, this is a nice surprise. Codemasters announced that it will be bringing mod support to GRID 2 via its upcoming Community Patch. This is the first time that a Codemasters racing title will be officially supporting mods. Yes, we’ve got some brilliant mods for Codies’ previous racing games, but now they will be officially supported. So that’s good news all around.
As Codemasters stated:
“This is our first step into supporting mods and it’ll be a learning process for us. So we’ll be looking to get your feedback along the way and we’ll make improvements over time where possible. When the tools are at your disposal, do let us know what you think. Above all else we look forward to seeing what you create.”
Here is the changelog for this upcoming Community patch. No ETA has been given as of yet!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
