Codemasters has announced that GRID will be making a return this fall, as a new GRID game will be released for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, as well as for PC, this fall.
New GRID Game
After five years, the newest GRID game, simply entitled GRID, will be releasing on September 13. The game, which will be GRID’s fourth installment, will deliver “intense wheel to wheel racing action, spanning four continents in some of the world’s most famous city streets and race circuits.” Gamers will be able to choose from GT, Muscle, Stock, Touring cars and more and compete in a variety of different races, such as circuit and street races.
Codemasters promise that this installment will bring “incredibly responsive” handling, progression through player cards, achievements and driving accolades, that “realistic damage” will affect your car’s performance, and that too much contact with one driver will lead to them becoming your rival “who will stop at nothing to get their revenge in the race.”
GRID Gaming Director Chris Smith told Codemasters that he is delighted to be able to bring GRID to the current generation of consoles. “The game offers so much variety and depth, from the number of modern and classic cars through to the locations and race options. Renowned for its handling, the game will appeal to all types of player, from casual drivers who want a lean-in challenge, to sim drivers who want some serious fun.”
Former F1 Driver Fernando Alonso is a consultant for the upcoming GRID game. Alonso will appear in-game, and GRID players will compete against his eSports driving team FA Gaming in a variety of races across multiple classes before facing Alonso in his Renault R26 F1® car in the final showdown race.
On consulting for the game, Alonso told Codemasters, “Having competed across F1®, Endurance and Stock Racing, GRID is the perfect game for me and I’m delighted the studio has added both myself and my racing team into the game. GRID offers so much variety and I welcome the challenge when players get to line-up against me.”
