2019 Racing Games

First Gameplay Trailer For GRID


After an absence of five years, GRID is coming back in 2019 with a self-titled sequel…we knew that much, but how does it play? Get a hint with the new gameplay trailer released today by Codemasters.

It’s an impressive-looking trailer, but we can’t describe it quite as eloquently as Codemasters does:

Displaying some of the new race locations, the action builds as the chasing pack hunt down the leaders. From the heat of the Havana streets to the track circuit of Brands Hatch, the driving is both skilled and unpredictable, showcasing the excitement and drama players will experience when the game is released on console and PC on October 11, 2019. The stunning visuals of San Francisco and Zhejiang Circuit put the driver at the heart of the action and give a true sense of speed, as cars look for the smallest window of opportunity to get ahead either by conventional means or by putting a rival into the wall.

The race culminates with the Pontiac Firebird Modified and Chevrolet Camaro SSX Concept going head-to-head on the final corners and long straight of San Francisco. One mistake could be the difference between the sweet taste of victory or the bitter regret of what might have been. Played out to the backdrop of the anthemic ‘The Light’ by Sophie and the Giants, the trailer demonstrates both the risks and the rewards of pushing some of the most iconic racing cars to their absolute limits.

You know by now you’ll get something if you pre-order the game, so what is it? It’s the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 car, which will also be available to anyone who buys the Day One Edition or Ultimate Edition. All first printings will be the Day One Edition, so pre-ordering isn’t really an urgency.

“We set out to create an exhilarating racing experience which is like no other and the new trailer gives our fans a glimpse of what to expect,” says Chris Smith, GRID Game Director at Codemasters. “Players will encounter challenging and combative racing from all the AI drivers and this creates a living, breathing world where anything is possible and finishing positions must be earned. Whether it’s competing in the middle of the pack or going wheel-to-wheel for victory, there are no easy wins and our players will both enjoy and marvel at our most competitive GRID to date.”

The new GRID will be out October 11 for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC.
