The lights are on
Grid 2 has been under wraps at Codemasters for years, and these two new gameplay videos show that the title is hitting the ground running.
The game uses Codemasters' EGO Game Technology Platform, and the title has been in pre-production for two years. Judging by these videos featuring extensive lighting, hood reflections, and plenty of eye candy, the work seems to be paying off.
Codemasters also promises a new car handling model that bridges the gap between sim and arcade racing, as well multiplayer features including offline split-screen and Codemasters' RaceNet community platform.
Grid 2 comes out for the Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3 in 2013.

Looks interesting, but when they said there would be no cockpit camera I decided I wasn't going to purchase it. Its a racing game, and to me a cockpit view is as mandatory as wheels on the car.
Looks good, but I think I'll just get Forza Horizon.
Looks amazing, graphics look sexy for a racing game.
The tracks look dull. I don't think CodeMasters has made any excellent tracks since the first DiRT, and considering how badly they wrecked the DiRT series following the first game, I expect any quality that GRID previously had to be crashed in a similar manner. Guess that's what happens when experienced talent leaves your studio and is replaced with no nothing young'uns who are just gassed to have a job as a game developer. Just a guess, but I'm pretty sure it's on the money. The in depth quality of CM racing games simply vanished shortly after DiRT.
