GRID 2 – First Trailer & Previews
Codemasters have released first previews and a first video trailer of their GRID 2 title that was officially announced a few days ago.
The trailer does show plenty of racing action in various cars, showing several fictional circuits as well as the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. Also visible is a first peek at the title’s damage system, one of the core features of the GRID series.
However, the trailer does not show any licensed race cars with real liveries yet. GRID came with several cars from series such as the Le Mans Series & WTCC, it remains to be seen whether GRID 2 will go down the same route.
Alongside the previews, ComputerAndVideogames has released a first preview as the guys had the chance to give an early version a try. The article mentions that GRID 2 has retained its successors sim-aracde handling model as GRID 2 doesn’t aim to be a realistic simulation, lacking some fundamental sim features like cockpit view.
The article also contains great news for PC players as Codemasters seems to be pushing the limits of current PCs with their graphics engine instead of porting the console version back to the PC like many multi-platform titles do.
GRID 2 will be released for the PC and gaming consoles in summer 2013.
