As the all-new racing experience from Codemasters Studios, creators of Colin McRae: DiRT, Race Driver: GRID is all about the race. Every moment from the adrenalin rush at the start lights to the elation at the chequered flag the tension, pressure, noise, and action.
Featuring only the most powerful race cars current and classic, circuit and drift players will compete to conquer the most prestigious official race tracks and championships and then go beyond to compete in challenging city-based competitions, through to road events and urban street races.
With races crammed with action and incident, high-impact moments will come at you thick and fast, one right after another: engine blows, tyre blow outs, tight overtaking, accidents, opponent cars flipping, spinning, collisions with other cars and trackside objects.
From humble beginnings, earning a few thousand dollars a season, build a feared and respected racing team with a multi-million dollar income and complete at dramatic race locations and dominate a multi-disciplined world of racing.
In Europe, race prestige Marques, including Aston Martin, Koenigsegg and Pagani, on the greatest official race circuits. Enter street competitions and race high-performance V8 muscle cars through iconic U.S. cities including San Francisco, Washington DC and Detroit. In the Far East, Japanese racing culture sets the tone where night races, including Drift racing, take drivers through neon illuminated cities and to outlying mountain roads.
As the antithesis of the box-ticking, plodding single-player race game, Race Driver: GRID delivers a diverse career mode in a persistent world of racing that provides each player with a unique experience as their team writes itself into racing folklore.
Its all about the race says Codemasters about Race Driver GRID, its big summer blockbuster, out on 360, PS3, PC and DS. From the same team that brought you 2007s highly regarded Colin McRae DIRT, GRID aims to capture every moment from the adrenalin rush at the start lights to the elation at the chequered flag - the tension, pressure, noise and action. This stunning looking title focuses on only the most powerful race cars, both past and present, and covering both circuit and drift. Players will get to compete in a contrasting selection of events, from official race tracks and championships, before going on to take part in intense city-based competitions, road events and even urban street racing. Like the three TOCA Race Driver titles before it, variety is high on the agenda, making the game feel like several top-class racing games in one. Focusing on Europe, the U.S. and the Far East, there are familiar cars and tracks to suit every petrol-head fetish imaginable. In Europe, for example, players can compete on the best-loved official tracks in prestige Marques including Aston Martin, Koenigsegg and Pagani. Elsewhere, in the U.S. gamers can race around San Francisco, Washington D.C and Detroit in street racing events that feature V8 Muscle Cars, while the Far East plays host to night races in neon-drenched cities and mountain roads, through back streets and the industrial areas of Yokohama on the fringes of legality. Meanwhile the specifically tailored DS version not only promises stunning visuals, but the most complete pick-up-and-play pocket racing package. As well as boasting extensive multiplayer options that let players compete in four-player online races, the DS version also features an evolution of the exclusive track editor first seen in Race Driver Create and Race last year. With over 60 pieces to choose from, gamers have near-limitless options to design a track of their choice. But whichever format gamers go for, Race Driver GRID sets a new high water mark f
