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.
