One of my most anticipated titles of this year is GRID from Codemasters. As a huge racing game fan I was always interested in the reboot of the franchise. However, with no Forza entry arriving this year, I’m sure I’m not the only one hoping that this will fill that void. GRID is actually an appropriate replacement for Forza Motorsport. It was originally a spinoff of the DiRT franchise with a focus on track-based motorsport as opposed to the off-road shenanigans of that series. Well, it appears that we will have to wait just a little longer as the game has been delayed by a month. GRID was originally scheduled to launch in September but will now see the lights turn green on 11th October. At least we won’t have to wait too much longer. If you are really desperate to get your hands on it, then you’ll be interested to know that the Ultimate Edition of the game will crant you three days early access.
If you’re unfamiliar with GRID here’s the trailer as well as the official description of the game –
GRID is a racing experience like no other. Offering unrivalled moment-to-moment racing, GRID returns with an all-new experience where every race is the chance to choose your own path, create your own story and conquer the world of motorsport. Take your place in the GRID World Series and fight in thrilling wheel-to-wheel battles with the most iconic and desirable race cars – current and classic, from GT through Touring and Muscle to Stock and Super Modifieds – and in some of the world’s most iconic locations. GRID captures every moment of the race, from the adrenaline rush of lights-out to the elation at the chequered flag – and in-between, it’s all action too. Incidents come one right after the other – tight overtakes, bumper-to bumper scrapes and competitive collisions – all heightened by rivalries, team-mates and a nemesis driver who will all either try to help or hinder your progress.
