Check Out GRID’s First Gameplay Trailer

GRID 496 July 11, 2019 by

Codemasters is continuing the slow reveal of the reborn GRID with this, the first gameplay trailer for the upcoming racer.

In the quick minute of footage, we get a good look at the first 12 confirmed cars, plus new and returning faces. The action quickly jumps from discipline to discipline, giving players a taste of classic muscle, touring cars, and modern GT racers. There’s a Subaru trading paint with the Audi RS3 and VW Golf TCR racers, which is something we haven’t seen before…

The tuner race, taking place through the night-time city streets, also seems to hold a few surprises. The return of fan-favorites like the FD-generation Mazda RX-7 and hawkeye Subaru Impreza is welcome. In addition to those two, there’s what looks like a ’90s Mitsubishi Lancer Evo.

At the half-way point the action switches to stock cars. The fictional Jupiter cars certainly stick to the “rubbing is racing” mentality, resulting in more than a few dramatic wrecks.

The trailer finishes where it started, back on the muscle cars.

GRID suffered a slight setback earlier this month, with a four-week delay pushing it to October for “more exposure”. This trailer peels back another layer of info: with three months to go, expect that to happen more frequently. We’ll have more on GRID in the launch lead-up.
