GRID Release Date Pushed to October 11

GRID, which was originally scheduled to release on September 13, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC has been delayed. According the most recent Codemasters blog, the game will release on October 11.

Fans purchasing the Ultimate Edition, will still receive three days’ early access, to play GRID on October 8. GRID also remains a launch title for the upcoming Google Stadia platform later this year.

GRID’s suite of varied race types accommodates classes of hardcore and casual drivers alike, allowing anyone to tear through corners and trade paint with a nemesis as rivalries form in the heat of the action.

The fourth game in the popular racing series, GRID delivers intense wheel-to-wheel racing action, spanning four continents in some of the world’s most famous city streets and race circuits. Choose cars from GT, Touring, Stock, Muscle, Super-Modified and more classes across race types including Circuit, Street Racing, Ovals, Hot Laps, Point-to-Point and World Time Attack.

GRID strikes the perfect balance, offering risk and reward for every type of racer. Handling is incredibly responsive with a learning curve that appeals to both casual arcade gamers through to the core simulation racers. Progression is rewarded through liveries, player cards, teammates, achievements and driving accolades. AI drivers push the player to their limits to earn a place on the podium and ultimate victory in the GRID World Series Championship. Realistic damage affects both the car’s performance and handling. Make too much contact with the same racer and you will see them emerge as a nemesis who will stop at nothing to get their revenge in the race.

Established as one of the best modern-day drivers across F1®, Endurance and Stock Racing, Fernando Alonso has signed as a Race Consultant and appears in-game. Players enter a series of events against some of Alonso’s Esports driving team ‘FA Racing’, across multiple classes of racing before coming face to face with the former World Champion in his infamous Renault R26 F1® car, in a final showdown event.

  1. Cant wait for this. Grid is the best, most enjoyable racer i've ever played. Nascar Heat is ruined by the online players who deliberately try to wreck you and the Gran Turismo style games are to slow and boring and require way too much grinding.

    I wish Codemasters had released Grid Autosport on the consoles. It was a pretty solid, multi-class racer on the PC. The original GRID on the 360 seemed to be a bit arcadish and wreck dependent to me.

    They did. It's even BC on the X1

    Meh, I wasn't going to buy it anyway.* Now bring out TOCA 3 on the XBox One and I'll be all over it!

    Co-signed 1,000 percent. The GRID series isn't very good, so I'm not sweating this delay.
    Revive TOCA and Project Gotham Racing, and I'll be in perpetual petrolhead bliss!

    Yeah, you're right... I'd bought GRID 2 for the 360, but didn't like the force feedback wheel implementation in it. I thought that GRID Autosport had only come out for the PC. I bought it and was very happy with the force feedback in it, so there's not really a point in buying it for the XBox One X in BC mode. I'd wager that the force feedback implementation on the PC version is better than that of the XBox 360 version anyway. I don't have a console racing game yet, Forza 7 included, in which the force feedback feels better than the same game on the PC.
    Thanks for pointing that out to me though, if it's part of Game Pass, I might download it anyway, just to see how it compares to the PC version.

    I found a copy of this (GRID Autosport XBox 360) in the bargain bin for $3 and figured, what the heck, I'll give it a try. It's absolutely terrible with the force feedback steering wheel. It apparently is only configured for the now obsolete Microsoft Wireless force feedback steering wheel. I tried tweaking the sensitivity, linearity, wheel weight, force, saturation range, deadband for 1 1/2 hours last night and couldn't come up with anything that was remotely playable.
    It's a shame because the same game on the PC delivered a slightly better than average force feedback wheel experience!? It works good with the controller, I guess, but anytime I can do better with a hand held controller than a force feedback wheel, I know the wheel implementation is severely flawed. I flat out suck with a hand held controller in a racing game.
