Driving simulators such as Forza Motorsport, Gran Turismo and Need for Speed are well-known--and well-loved--here at Motor Authority. However, there is a new title in the works that may upset these video game heavyweights, and that’s GRID 2 from Codemasters.
The sequel to 2008’s GRID, the focus of the new game is having arcade-style fun rather than creating a totally realistic driving experience. Nevertheless, the graphics are still as realistic as that of any of the rival games and the lineup of cars looks promising.
The list includes the likes of the Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang, McLaren MP4-12C and the Pagani Huayra. The game’s creators say the total list of cars spans four decades and three continents.
GRID 2 will be released in time for summer 2013 and will be available for the Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360 and PC.
