Codemasters have released another trailer for their upcoming GRID 2, thankfully not another short teaser as this one is the first proper gameplay trailer since the game was announced last year. The video shows off some of the locations that’ll be present in the game, including Paris, Barcelona, Chicago, California and the Red Bull Ring.
It looks like the game is split into Street Racing, Track Racing and Open Road Racing – the section showing off the Chicago night racing is a particular highlight, but it’s looking pretty good all round.
The game will also feature World Series Racing. “It’s a new motorsport series that starts from the grassroots and grows into a huge Prime Time competition,” says Codemasters’ Ben Walke, “Racers from different disciplines – street racers, drifters, track racers and more – all come together in one global series, with each driver moving in and out of their comfort zone.”
Three modes have been revealed today. Race: “you know the deal, start fast, finish first and take home the glory”, Eliminator: “any racer that is in last position when the time runs out is eliminated from the race and the winner is the racer who survives”, and Checkpoint: “all about how you perform under pressure as you aim to cover as much distance as possible before the timer expires.”
The game is out at the end of May.
