New GRID title announced for September 2019
Codemasters, experts in motorsports titles and the name behind the F1 and DIRT franchises, have announced the comeback of one it other well loved franchises, GRID. The long awaited return will be the fourth in the series, and if the popularity and quality of its previous titles are anything to go by, this should be a great all round motor racing game.
Here’s what the developers had to say:
“GRID delivers intense wheel to wheel racing action, spanning four continents in some of the world’s most famous city streets and race circuits. Choose cars from GT, Touring, Stock, Muscle, Super-Modified and more, across race types including Circuit, Street Racing, Ovals, Hot Laps, Point-to-Point and World Time Attack. GRID strikes the perfect balance, offering risk and reward for every type of racer. Handling is incredibly responsive with a learning curve that appeals to both casual arcade gamers through to the core simulation racers. Progression is rewarded through liveries, player cards, team mates, achievements and driving accolades. AI drivers push the player to their limits to earn a place on the podium and ultimate victory in the GRID World Series Championship. Realistic damage can affect both the car’s performance and handling and too much contact with the same racer will see them emerge as a nemesis who will stop at nothing to get their revenge in the race.”
Motor racing legend Fernando Alonso has been signed up as a Race Consultant, and also appears in game. Players enter a series of events against some of Alonso’s Esports driving team ‘FA Racing’, across multiple classes of racing before coming face to face with the former World Champion in his infamous Renault R26 car, in a final showdown event.
The game is available to pre-order in regular edition or the GRID Ultimate Edition which includes DLC Season 1-3 content and early access. GRID is available on Xbox, Palystation and PC from 13th September.
