A new Grid is in the works and it was announced that it would be releasing this year. This would be the fourth game in the Grid series and it is headed to consoles, PC, and Stadia this fall. Check out the trailer below via IGN.

Titled Grid, the game spans four continents with plenty of streets and race circuits to drive. These various locations will feature Circuit, Street Racing, Ovals, Hot Laps, Point-to-Point and World Time Attack.

As many of you must be wondering, ‘What cars are going to be in it?’ Well the official cars havent all been announced but some of cars types include GT, Touring, Stock, Muscle, Super-Modified and more. Codemasters says this outing won’t have a steep learning curve, and the gameplay will appeal to both casual and veteran players. In fact, F1 racer Fernando Alonso signed as a Race Consultant for Grid and also appears in-game. You will go up against him and his Renault R26 F1 car in a final showdown event.

Chris Smith, Grid Game Director at Codemasters says,

“Grid as a racing franchise is revered by our community and we are delighted to bring it to the current generation of consoles. The game offers so much variety and depth, from the number of modern and classic cars through to the locations and race options. Renowned for its handling, the game will appeal to all types of player, from casual drivers who want a lean-in challenge, to sim drivers who want some serious fun.”

Grid, and the Grid Ultimate Edition, are both available for pre-order and the latter provides early access ahead of release. It also comes with Season 1-3 content.

It will be made available on PC, Stadia, PS4, and Xbox One September 13th.
