GRID 2 Takes Live Routes, Drifts onto Consoles Next Week
GRID 2 releases next week, May 28th, on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, bringing live routes, drifts and much more to the gameplay. GRID 2 introduces LiveRoutes, a new system that offers many route possibilities by changing up the course of a race track. LiveRoutes randomly selects a new route through each city in the game by changing it up in six different ways, every time you race.
“In a LiveRoutes event, you don’t know what’s coming next and it turns each race into a test of your racecraft, car handling and reactions on circuits that cannot be learnt. In both career mode and online, LiveRoutes offers near limitless possibilities in every race and it’s a great leveller, even for the most experienced racing game players.” said Clive Moody, senior executive producer for GRID 2, in a press release.
Check out the LiveRoutes video below as it shows how the roads change on different play-throughs.
GRID 2 also features drift events, having players challenge for high scores in the single player campaign and online. The drift events have players earning points for speed, style, and form as they drive along steep mountain roads full of sharp corners and hairpin turns.
Who’s looking forward to racing next week? I sure am!
