Codemasters has announced that Grid 2, the long awaited sequel to Race Driver: Grid, is set for a 2013 launch.
“Grid’s back and we’re going to make street, track and road racing exciting again,” said Clive Moody, executive producer.
“The core design philosophy for Grid 2 is that we treat the race as a character, not a consequence of simply putting cars on tracks. Everything that goes into the game impacts on that second-to-second, in the moment, blockbuster drama – the feel and personality of the race.”
The game will feature a handpicked selection of cars over four decades and tracks from Paris, Miami and Abu Dhabi.
Grid 2’s single and multiplayer modes will be independent from one another. Career mode will span three continents, whilst multiplayer mode is a progression system for players.
Codemasters has released a snazzy new trailer for Grid 2, featuring tracks from Paris and Chicago.
Grid 2 has been in development for two years and is built using the latest version of Codemasters Racing’s Ego engine. The game will be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and of course PC.
