With less than a month to go until the release of Codemasters and Deep Silver’s GRID, we have a load of screens and videos for you to enjoy!
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.Chris Smith, GRID Game Director
From what we’ve seen so far, GRID is definitely more arcade than serious sim. It’s hard to judge the handling of a game from a video, but as you can see, with the scoring popping up for things like two-wheeled driving, it looks like they have aimed for accessibility more than realism. What we’ve seen recently, however, is that racers that take themselves less seriously can actually be a lot more fun than their stiff-upper-lip counterparts.
Hopefully, the high frame rate seen in the video is carried over to the console versions. We’ve seen some great racers this year, with notable games Wreckfest and WRC 8 delivering excellent gameplay, and beautiful graphics, hampered by a 30 fps frame rate. It didn’t make them any less fun or playable, but it was certainly noticeable and, as is the case with the internet, subject to much trolling from certain circles of gamer.
GRID releases on 11th October 2019, for Xbox One, Playstation 4, Google Stadia, and Windows PC.
