Codemasters’ Grid 2 is one of the most ambitious racings games in some time. Today, the company released a new trailer and also revealed some information about the game’s race modes.
In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Codemasters’ Ben Walke wrote about three of the game’s race modes:
Well, GRID 2 isn’t a driving game, it’s a racing game. That’s an important distinction. So it goes without saying that one of the game modes within GRID 2 will be Race. You know the deal, start fast, finish first and take home the glory. GRID 2 introduces a lot of new modes and features, but ultimately, we’re determined to make the best in-game racing experience whenever you’re behind the wheel and straight up racing is the heartbeat of the game.
Eliminator is a constant fight for position. As the event unfolds, any racer that is in last position when the time runs out is eliminated from the race and the winner is the racer who survives all eliminations. Keep up with the pack or you’re all but guaranteed to be eliminated, but careful as you trade paint with your competitors as one false move can have catastrophic results…
Checkpoint is all about how you perform under pressure as you aim to cover as much distance as possible before the timer expires. You’ll have limited time to make it to the next checkpoint, so you’ll be expected to hit the apexes and find the right braking points to shave precious seconds off your time.
Stay tuned, there are more modes to come.
He also teased a few of the game’s real-world race locations, including Brands Hatch, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Red Bull Ring, and Yas Marina. These are in addition to real-world cities like Chicago, Paris, and Barcelona.
Grid 2 releases on May 28.
