Codemasters this morning announced one of its most loved franchises, GRID, is making a return when it releases on 13th of September, 2019, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The fourth game in the 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, across race types including Circuit, Street Racing, Ovals, Hot Laps, Point-to-Point, and World Time Attack.
Realistic damage can affect both the car’s performance and handling and too much contact with the same racer will see them emerge as a nemesis that will stop at nothing to get their revenge in the race.
“GRID as a racing franchise is revered by our community and we are delighted to bring it to the current generation of consoles,” said Chris Smith, GRID Game Director at Codemasters. “The game offers so much variety and depth, from the number of modern and classic cars through to the locations and race options. Renowned for its handling, the game will appeal to all types of player, from casual drivers who want a lean-in challenge, to sim drivers who want some serious fun.
Established as one of the most skilled 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.
Fernando Alonso added: “Having competed across F1, Endurance and Stock Racing, GRID remain the ultimate game for me and I’m delighted the studio has added both myself and my racing team into the game. GRID offers so much variety, and I embrace the challenge when players get to line-up against me.”
