Grid 2 (stylised as GRID 2 and known as Race Driver: Grid 2 in Japan) is a racing video game developed and published by Codemasters and is the sequel to 2008's Race Driver: Grid. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 28 May 2013 in North America, 30 May 2013 in Australia, 31 May 2013 in Europe and 25 July 2013 in Japan. On 25 September 2014, Feral Interactive released the GRID 2 Reloaded Edition for Mac.
The game includes numerous real world locations and cities such as Paris. It also includes motor vehicles spanning four decades. In addition, it includes a new handling system that developer Codemasters has dubbed 'TrueFeel', which aims to hit a sweet spot between realism and accessibility. Races do not include a first person cockpit view. The popular gamemode "Drift" was recently shown in a gameplay preview by Codemasters.
Drivers are given certain cars before some race modes, and can unlock others through other vehicle challenges. Car liveries can be customised by the player, using preset graphic designs adapted with colours or varying shades.
World Series Racing
World Series Racing (WSR) is a highly competitive racing event that races on various tracks on various continents around the globe. It also features a mode called "LiveRoutes" where the circuit track dynamically changes with no track map. It features race types including Race, Time Attack, Drift, Eliminator, Checkpoint, Touge, and Vehicle Challenges.
The player assumes the role of a new driver who is enlisted by Patrick Callahan, an investor, to help launch the WSR by challenging drivers of racing clubs. Winning races against drivers in established clubs in North America, Europe and Asia gains more fans for the series, and leads to drivers from those clubs agreeing to join the WSR.
