GRID Autosport coming this summer
New entry in the racing franchise teams up with magazine
Codemasters have revealed the next racing game in the GRID series as GRID Autosport.
GRID Autosport promises the experience of becoming a professional racing driver in a new world of contemporary and classic motorsport. Racing alongside a teammate, players must overcome key rivals and satisfy team sponsors. In career mode, gamers will specialise in their favourite racing discipline or conquer them all; Touring, Endurance, Open-Wheel, Tuner, and Street.
Each category features series dedicated to different classes, including Touring Cars, Hypercars, Endurance GT Cars, Prototypes, Single-Seaters, Super Modified vehicles, Drift cars and more. The game features over 100 routes across 22 locations.
GRID Autosport's features have been shaped through consultation with the GRID community, professional racing drivers and AUTOSPORT magazine. This includes the return of an in-car view and more authentic handling. Multiplayer racing is extended by RaceNet, which will deliver new challenges every week from launch and sees the introduction of RaceNet Racing Clubs for online, clan-style team competition. Party modes, Demolition Derby and competitive split-screen modes are also offered.
GRID Autosport also promises to thrive on PC. On high-performance set ups, GRID Autosport offers 4K textures, 4K output support and delivers a 1080P, 60 frames per second. However, the game has also been optimised for performance on a wide range of hardware.
GRID Autosport will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
