Codemasters has announced that their racing franchise GRID is speeding back into the spotlight when GRID launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 13. There will be an “Ultimate Edition” for the game that will allow players to start playing on September 10.
You can read all about this new GRID below and watch the reveal trailer that IGN got the exclusive reveal of.
Capturing intense moment-to-moment racing action, GRID returns with an all-new experience where every race is the chance to choose your own path, create your own story and define your legacy in the motorsport world.
From the creators of the hugely successful DiRT and F1 series, Codemasters invites you to take your place in the GRID World Series and compete in intense wheel-towheel racing 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 as you achieve your goal of becoming the GRID World Series champion.
