Fan Favorite Racing Game GRID Returns to the Tracks After Five Years

Time to burn rubber.

Codemasters is reviving one of its most popular racing franchises later this year with GRID. The last proper GRID game hasn't been seen since 2014 when Grid Autosport was released on PS3 and Xbox 360.

GRID is latest racing game from the developers behind other popular auto titles like DiRT and the F1 games. Rather than limit themselves to just one type of car or racing style, GRID will have races in GT, Touring, Muscle, Stock, and Super Modifiers set in iconic racing locations.

There will be a career path in six of the main racing classes, plus something called The Fernando Alonso Challenge. F1 driver Fernando Alonso joins GRID and Codemasters as a racing consultant for the title, and it looks like he'll have his own set of unique challenges that can be completed for a reward.

Despite the hyper realistic graphics, Codemasters seems to be promoting the game's moment-to-moment action. "Incidents come one right after the other – tight overtakes, bumper-to-bumper scrapes and competitive collisions – all heightened by rivalries, team-mates and a nemesis driver who will either try to help or hinder your progress as you achieve your goal of becoming the GRID World Series champion."

IGN has the exclusive reveal trailer for GRID which you can check out below.

GRID will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 13. The Ultimate Edition will include early access and will launch on September 10. The last game in the series, GRID Autosport is also coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year as a port.
