Codemasters has officially revealed the next part in the GRID series, called GRID: Autosport. According to the Codies, GRID Autosport aims to move the series back in line as a more authentic racing game. The game has been improved, will feature a better handling system, and will sport two cockpit views.
“For GRID Autosport we’ve gone back to a more authentic handling style. It’s definitely not a full simulation – we want it to be authentic, not clinical – but it’s more towards that end of the spectrum than before. If anything, we believe the handling is actually one or two steps further towards simulation than Race Driver: GRID, to give you an idea.“
As noted, the single player career in GRID Autosport will allow you to ‘become a professional racing driver and as you make progress you’ll be able to join and switch teams, fulfil sponsor demands and beat rivals.’
In GRID: Autosport, players can use a teammate to defend them or attack a car ahead. And as you’d expect, the Multiplayer mode of GRID: Autosport will be powered by RaceNet.
GRID: Autosport is currently scheduled for a June 27th release on PC, X360 and PS3.
