Challenging players to become the number one race driver in a new world of exhilarating
motorsport, Race Driver: GRID will take players on a tour like never before to beautifully
realised racing locations through Europe, the U.S., Japan and beyond. Race Driver: GRID will
feature the most extensive range of events in the series, combining official circuit-based
championships with Race Driver: GRIDs road races and urban street competitions.
Travel the world as a race driver in GRID where the emphasis is on the racing. Get behind the
wheel in Europe, the US and Japan with distinct racing styles for each venue. European courses
are track based, US courses take you through population centers and the Japanese put on drift
and other underground-style events. GT and Touring cars are your mounts of choice in Europe
while muscle cars are kings of the road in America and you'll be sliding through urban race
courses in tricked-out sports cars in the Land of the Rising Sun and open-wheel racing in
multiple locations. As a driver, you'll be out to earn money – by winning, being part of a
winning team, sponsorship bonuses and taking on the courses at higher difficulty levels. Your
winnings will go towards purchasing vehicles new or by in-game online auctions.
As you twist and turn through the incredibly realistic courses, your AI opponents will happily
smash you against the wall with damage affecting how your car handles. Head-on collisions will
put you completely out of the race, but the flashback rewind option lets you go back and avoid
danger. A driver's position in the pack will also determine whether they challenge you for the
lead, or simply hold back and wait for you to make a mistake. The AI drivers aren't immune to
making mistakes as they jockey for position and each racing team has distinct driving styles.
All of the racing events – plus a demolition derby – can be played with up to a dozen players
either online or on a network. Are you ready to get behind the wheel?
