GRID Reboot — First Gameplay Video

July 11, 2019

We haven't had a GRID game since 2014's GRID Autosport. An evolution of Codemaster's TOCA series, 2008 saw Race Driver: GRID and 2013 its sequel GRID 2.

The player got to build a career in motorsport with all the fun and games surrounding it. The racing itself was high quality and pitched somewhere between full-on arcade racing and the more commonplace sims we have today. Perhaps the best thing the series brought us was the flashback mechanic, allowing you to reset yourself and go again if you had a problem. Like a totalled car, for instance. This particular mechanic can be seen in many racing — and other games — since.

Anyway, we have a reboot/sequel coming October 11th 2019. And we now have the first gameplay video for you all to watch. First though, how about some words from the developers?

“The response to the GRID announcement has been incredible and there is genuine excitement for us to reveal much more of the game,” said Chris Smith, GRID Game Director at Codemasters.
“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. 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.”
