New Multiplayer Video now playing at www.youtube.com/gridgame ahead of GRID 2’s Race into Retail on 31st May
Today Codemasters® released an extended multiplayer GRID 2™ gameplay trailer at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTdAcw3Bppw, showcasing new locations, including the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and features such as vehicle customisation from the game’s extensive and distinct online mode.
The multiplayer video gives gamers the first view of the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway Circuit in-game, the iconic venue which is the world’s largest sporting spectator facility and has been the spiritual home of American motorsport for over a century.
The trailer also reveals the game’s powerful yet simple to use livery editor in action, which features up to six billion different design combinations so players can stamp their own identity online. Game modes including Checkpoint racing in Paris and street racing in Chicago are shown alongside RaceNet’s extensive suite of social features in the video.
GRID 2’s multiplayer game mode will offer an entirely distinct progression system, separate from career mode, offering depth, choice and flexibility powered by RaceNet, (www.racenet.com), the free online extension for Codemasters Racing games. Players will be served regular new objectives, matched with rivals and be rewarded for their progress as the best in modern online gaming comes to the racing genre. RaceNet can be accessed on a player’s desktop, tablet or mobile device and will have dedicated apps set to release around launch.
GRID 2, the long-awaited sequel to the BAFTA-award winning, critically acclaimed Race Driver: GRID™, will race into retail on May 31 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Windows® PC and is available for pre-order now.
