Codemasters have announced the release date for their next racer – GRID 2. The game will be out on PS3, PC and 360 on May 31st. Alongside the regular purchase of the game, there’s also going to be a Special Edition which includes extra content that you can redeem online.
In addition, in the UK, if you pre-order the game at GAME there’s the Brands Hatch Edition, which includes two additional content packs. The first pack will unlock a McLaren MP4-12C GT3 and two new routes around Brands hatch; the second pack is the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 GT and in-game discounts for the Upgrade Store.
The cars are shown below:
We really liked GRID 2 when we played it recently, with our man Stefan saying the game felt “accessible and arcadey” in spite of the game’s TrueSkill system that adapts to the player. The game uses the latest generation of Codemasters’ EGO engine, which offers 60fps on PC and a rock solid 30fps on current-gen consoles.
