GRID 3 – First Video Teaser

Codemasters have released a first video teaser of the third installment of their GRID franchise.

Codemasters have released a first video teaser of the third installment of their GRID franchise.

While the teaser that comes with some nice sounds does not mention GRID 3 specifically, the fact that it sports the GRID badge and is uploaded to Codemasters’ “GRID” Youtube account should be telling enough.

Codemasters will reveal more details on , it remains to be seen whether the third GRID will cater more towards the needs of fans of realistic racing after GRID 2 dropped most of the more realistic features of GRID 1, including circuit racing and cockpit view.

  • Gulyás Tamás

    We need back cockpit view ! ( I need anyway… 🙂 )

  • joe pineapples

    Well they’ve been keen to emphasize ‘they’ve listened’…’really listened’, so I guess we’ll find out next Tuesday.

  • F1Racer

    I’ll bet anything those sounds aren’t from the game so it’s kind of a nothing teaser really. Plus I reckon if it’s going to be anything it will be just automotive eye candy with better than average crash damage.
    But we’ll see.

  • Bill

    I wouldn’t even try a demo without cockpit view. I’ll be interested in how this develops anyway.

  • Hurdy Hurdy

    I thought was ‘100% Sim Racing News’

    Where does this version of GRID fit in to that category?

    • F1Racer

      Fits into the sim-racing category.

      • Hurdy Hurdy

        In that case, every racing game does then. Even Mario Kart simulates racing.

        Look forward to your Ridge Racer and Out Run reviews, lol.

      • F1Racer

        In all your patronising, you are correct.
        Ridge Racer and Out Run are way too old to review now.

    • MontoyaVR

      We don’t know yet whether it fits 🙂

      New titles are always getting covered if there’s a chance that they’ll offer a realistic racing experience.

      It was the same with GRID 2, I covered it until it became apparent that it is heading very much in the arcade direction. The same will happen here if GRID 3 turns out to be the same…but maybe it won’t 🙂

    • Almacca

      Dunno about you, but I’m interested in pretty much any racing game, and appreciate the viewpoint of connoisseurs, as opposed to leaving it to the likes of the Regular Gaming Press.

  • Ben Lee

    Codies haven’t made a decent racing game since the Colin McRae rally games.

  • Leeman

    The last version of GRID didnt even have a cockpit view. Ugh. I’ll pass. They should go back to making the TOCA series.

    • Steve Shears

      This one does. Cockpit view is back.

  • Pascal

    GRID 1 was best arcade racing game. But GRID 2 was bad.

  • Metal Machine

    A video of red lines. AWESOME, i believe under 1 trilion of people will surely buy it /sarcazm.

  • Me

    Everyone is asking for a cockpit view…maybe they’ll put us in the car with Oculus support? They’ve shown they can bring it in the graphics department, now if they could give us some realistic physics…might be good. We’ll see…

  • ftrracingtv

    please make this TOCA 4

  • Derek Speare

    Cockpit View: Mandatory!
    Proper Three Screen Support: Essential, without question!

    • FatnSlo

      I would be shocked if it had proper triple screen support.

    • Almacca

      Cockpit view, and I daresay triple screen support, is really only any good if you can configure the camera position and field of view, and maybe even turn off the in car wheel. How hard could that be, though? TrackIR support would be a fairly straightforward improvement too.

      Codemasters have never done that in the past, though, leading me to prefer the hood view in their games. Maybe that’s how they got those stats about viewpoint preferences.

  • Hurdy Hurdy

    Whilst it is presumed this is GRID 3, there is some chatter around the net that this will actually be a ‘next gen’ version GRID 2 for the XBOX ONE and PS4.

  • Grant Robinson

    Wow! They have really perfected the physics and car handing judging by the way those red flashes zip across the screen compared to the red flashes of Grid 2 teaser…

  • Mario Strada

    I bought Grid 2 at a Steam sale. I think I paid $6 for it.
    That was too much. The cars are undrivable. You have to drive them like you would a large boat. Plan in advance.

    I thought I would mind the lack of a cockpit view, but hood view is very similar and I don’t mind it. Everything else, the races without a lap of practice, the physics, are the worse I have ever tried.

    I don’t have much hope for Grid 3. As far as I know, Grid 2 sold pretty well, or they would not be making a sequel.
    More power to them, but I won’t buy it even on sale this time.

  • A Lex Ander

    Oh and… THIS is what cockpit games should look like:

  • RKipker

    No Cockpit, N Circuit Tracks, No Money….LOL

  • Voltaic

    All they had to do is add realistic physics, more tracks and updated cars. It would have been an instant hit. The original Grid was a blast!

  • joe pineapples

    Official first details are about now, and looks promising so far.
