GRID 2 – Release Date and Pre-order Details


Codemasters Racing will be releasing a sequel to its 2008 game which was everyone except the US knew as Race Driver: Grid. This time round everyone is in the same proverbial boat as this time round it is simply called Grid 2 and it’ll be hitting store shelves on May 31st in the UK and May 28th in North America. As per usual with games, there will be pre-order editions, see below.

Codemasters Racing say “We’re pleased to confirm that pre-orders for GRID 2 should now be available at your favorite retailer. Furthermore, if you like a little extra with your GRID 2, ask your local retailer about the special pre-order packs that are available. Which one are you going to get?”

Now the first game had an interesting feature called the Flashback which allowed you to rewind time, saving you from a crippling crash. A mode which has been used in various games since. Let’s just hope this game can bring something new and defining to make it stand out from the somewhat saturated crowd. Now all I have to do is decide which pre-order pack to get in May?
