GRID – Get Your Heart Racing
With just three weeks left until the new GRID game launches, Codemasters have released another trailer to get our hearts racing!
The video shows us some of the variety of cars and circuits that GRID is going to offer. From Destruction Derby bangers, to the latest Prototypes there’s something for everyone. And that is a key focus for Codemasters and the GRID team. Choice. Players of GRID will be able to play the way they want to play.
As a team, we wanted to capture the essence of the original GRID which, in its day, innovated the racing genre with best-in-class handling and the introduction of Flashback. We want to build on GRID’s legacy and create a game that focuses on three core pillars of choice & accessibility, motorsport stories and racing for glory, all of which are captured in the trailer.
Accessibility and Choice allows players to race their way with handling options for both the core sim racer and casual players. Secondly, it’s about Glory and Prestige. We want players to feel excited no matter where they finish – whether that’s in first place or coming out on top against your arch nemesis. Lastly, it’s about the unpredictable stories that happen in Motorsport; it’s why we watch motorsport on TV. It’s the drama and those the key moments that get you sitting on the edge of your seat. GRID isn’t about a procession of cars. It’s tight overtakes, bumper-to-bumper scrapes and competitive racing action. We want everything including the car to be able to tell a story at the end of the race through its bumps and scrapes. GRID gives players drama, excitement and unique motorsport stories in every race.Chris Smith, GRID Game Director at Codemasters
GRID releases on PS4, the Xbox One family of consoles, and PC on October the 11th. Our hearts are racing, but Mike’s taken his medication, so it’s fine!
