A special 4-car Stadia mode in GRID “isn’t possible” on other platforms, its developer has asserted.

Speaking with WCCFTech, Development Director Mark Green praised Stadia’s setup, saving the remote servers it streams from allowed for the 40-car mode.

“Development on any new hardware is always equal parts exciting and interesting,” Green said. “Perhaps the area with the biggest difference was the streaming, but also the ability of Stadia to talk to other Stadia so quickly transforms some ideas around multiplayer – for example developing a whole new mode for GRID Stadia which has 40 cars on track at the same time, something that just isn’t possible with other hardware.”

Green also said that developers have “probably only just scratched the surface of what Stadia is capable of.”

Stadia launches later this month in select countries not including Australia; GRID is one of the twelve launch games on offer and will also be available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
