Grid 2 multiplayer modes detailed
A variety of modes in the online feature set for upcoming racing title
Codemasters has revealed new details about GRID 2's multiplayer features.
GRID 2 promises a multiplayer experience that revolves around the gamer’s play style and choices. Multiplayer game modes can be played with up to 12 participants, including custom races based on player preferences and choosing from pre-defined playlists. Players can modify their cars with upgrades and customization.
New anti-griefing technology includes player grouping, so gamers who like to trade paint will be brought together online whilst clean racers are more likely to find similar drivers in their online sessions.
Game modes will include Race (including LiveRoutes), Endurance, Drift, Touge, Checkpoint, Face Off, Time Attack. Global Challenge events also includes Overtake and Power Lap.
RaceNet, Codemasters’ free online browser-based extension which tracks players’ races, rivals and rewards, launches fully with GRID 2. RaceNet will provide players with new objectives, rivals and rewards for progress. Players can also track community stats, leaderboards and participate in weekly Global Challenge events.
GRID 2 will race into retail on May 28 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.
