If you’re after the chance to take in some intense racing action that is like no other, are ready for some unpredictable racing, and want to check out some new cars, new settings and more, then the rebooted GRID is going to be the game for you. Today Codemasters have released the very first gameplay trailer for GRID on Xbox One, PS4 and PC and you can be sure that the sparks will be found flying.
Gearing up for release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC in October, the new GRID will see Codemasters attempting to deliver something very special. And if we take the first gameplay trailer as a hint of what is to come, it’s going to be a great time to be a racing fan.
As the lights turn green, cars jostle for the lead as they hurtle towards the first corner in the long-awaited return of the much-loved racing franchise, and if you’re liking what you see in the trailer below, will be delighted to discover that those who pre-order GRID, buy the Day One Edition or splash the cash on the Ultimate Edition will get the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 as bonus content.
Displaying some of the new race locations, the action in the trailer builds as the chasing pack hunt down the leaders. From the heat of the Havana streets to the track circuit of Brands Hatch, the driving is both skilled and unpredictable, showcasing the excitement and drama players will experience when the game is released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC come October 11th 2019.
The stunning visuals of San Francisco and Zhejiang Circuit put the driver at the heart of the action and give a true sense of speed, as cars look for the smallest window of opportunity to get ahead either by conventional means or by putting a rival into the wall. This all sees the racing culminate with the Pontiac Firebird Modified and Chevrolet Camaro SSX Concept going head-to-head on the final corners and long straight of San Francisco. One mistake could be the difference between the sweet taste of victory or the bitter regret of what might have been.
Take it all in below, as the gameplay is played out to the backdrop of the anthemic ‘The Light’ by Sophie and the Giants, with the trailer demonstrating both the risks and the rewards of pushing some of the most iconic racing cars to their absolute limits.
“The response to the GRID announcement has been incredible and there is genuine excitement for us to reveal much more of the game,” said Chris Smith, GRID Game Director at Codemasters. “We set out to create an exhilarating racing experience which is like no other and the new trailer gives our fans a glimpse of what to expect. Players will encounter challenging and combative racing from all the AI drivers and this creates a living, breathing world where anything is possible and finishing positions must be earned. Whether it’s competing in the middle of the pack or going wheel-to-wheel for victory, there are no easy wins and our players will both enjoy and marvel at our most competitive GRID to date.”
