Well its about bloody time!

 

http://www.gametrailers.com/games/1uatf0/grid-2/videos-trailers

 

Theres a few interviews.

 

No cockpit view or driving assists (Except Auto Gears) Liking the no assists tbh.

Not sure on the no cockpit view though, ive never used it but it was still nice to have a quick look inside some of the more exotic cars. 

 

Also found out that its going to be playable at Eurogamer in september, im not able to go this year, gutted now this is going to be there.

 

Summer 2013 cant come quick enough!

Missing the cockpit view is a real bummer, always used that.

But, gaining splitscreen more than makes up for it.

 

I just hope they realise individual drift events, are the most boring game modes to taint racing games this generation.

Grid2 - Lead image


Thanks TP, and now we have reached Feb 14th so it's time for the next big look!

Let's start of with talking about the variety of events in Grid 2.

Race

Well, GRID isn’t a driving game, it’s a racing game. It’s an important distinction. So it goes without saying that one of the game modes within GRID 2 will be Race. You know the deal, start fast, finish first and take home the glory.

 

 

Eliminator

Eliminator is a constant fight for position. As the event unfolds, 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 all eliminations. Keep up with the pack or you’re all but guaranteed to be eliminated, but careful as you trade paint with your competitors as one false move can have catastrophic results…

GRID 2 on PS3


Checkpoint


Checkpoint is all about how you handle under pressure as you aim to cover as much distance before the timer expires. You’ll only have a limited time to make it to the next checkpoint so you’ll be expected to hit the apexes and find the right braking points to shave precious seconds off your time.

 

Locations


Variety is the name of the game when it comes to the racing locations in GRID 2.  With three broad stages of racing – Street Racing, Track Racing and Open Road Racing. You’ll be pleased to know Codemasters have recently confirmed the addition of two new circuits, Brands Hatch and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, two famous motorsport Meccas which join the previously announced Red Bull Ring and Yas Marina.

Away from these tracks you’ll be able to race around cities such as Chicago, Paris and Barcelona as well as being able to take to the road along the California Coast.

 

Still to come

We’re hurtling down the track and that May 31st release date is getting ever closer. Fear not though, because between now and then we’ve still got lots of exciting news left to share with you all. We’ve got new locations to reveal, new cars and game features… and we’ll have a whole loads of videos coming too.

Patrick Callahan outlines his plans for a new motorsports series and introduces players to two key racing clubs he needs to recruit as in-game footage showcases some of GRID 2's American locations, including Street Racing in Chicago, Track Racing at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Road Racing at the dramatic California Coast. It's Callahan's intention to bring the best drivers from different disciplines and styles from all over the world together to compete in one unified league and find the ultimate driving superstar. But to set up a new motorsports series, and get the rewards he craves, he needs a star.

It was great, I especially liked the drift :D Nothing like some close contact touring car racing around europe though, not ramming but some nice little touches in the rear which you return the favour of on the next corner :D

 

If you have an xbox the servers are still on I think.
