Codemasters Community Manager Ben Walke has confirmed today that Grid 2 will be roaring on PlayStation 3 in 2013 with details below, as follows:
Hey there everybody. Back in 2008 the team here at Codemasters released Race Driver: GRID, which set new standards for damage, AI and visuals, and introduced the Flashback rewind feature. All our hard work was recognised the following year when the game went on to win a BAFTA award.
And now it's time to unveil the sequel, due out in Summer 2013. One of the big talking points around the original GRID was the way the cars felt.
We've built on this for the follow-up with our new TrueFeel Handling System, which uses real physics to hit that sweet spot, ensuring that GRID 2 stays true to its predecessor and delivers exceptional handling throughout.
We can't talk about GRID 2 without mentioning the cars - in your garage there will be a selection of handpicked automotive icons spanning four decades and three continents; USA, Europe and Asia so no matter where you race you'll always be behind the wheel of something exceptional.
Talking of locations, you'll be visiting the likes of Paris, Abu Dhabi the California Coast and many more. Whether on beautiful city streets, licensed circuits or knife-edge mountain roads, you'll be experiencing some of the most visceral and exhilarating races imaginable in breath-taking locales.
If multiplayer is your thing, you'll be pleased to hear it will be well represented with an entirely distinct and extensive gameplay component and unique progression system.
At the heart of our multiplayer will be RaceNet, our online community portal for Codemasters Racing Games which will allow you to track your races, rivals and rewards.
We're looking forward to showing you more of GRID 2 over the coming weeks and months, but for now check out the brand new trailer below. Be fast, be famous, be first - this is GRID 2.
