There's a lot of asphalt waiting for you on the disc - the streets of Dubai and Paris, sweeping open roads on the California Coast, tight and twisty ribbons on mountains in Japan, and apexes to nail on circuits like Brands Hatch, Red Bull Ring and the Algarve International Circuit.

Codemasters on Taking the Race Online with GRID 2's Multiplayer

53w ago - Codemasters Ben Walke shared details today on taking the race online with GRID 2's multiplayer.

To quote: We've talked previously about World Series Racing and the single player experience of GRID 2 - now it's time to talk multiplayer.

Multiplayer in GRID 2 is big. Bigger than anything we've done before. More depth, more choice, more progression... but before we get to the BIG details, we'll just chuck in a little reminder that you can play in two-player split-screen across our game modes. It's old school, and we love it.

GRID 2 utilizes a multiplayer system that is completely separate to the single player portion of the game. We want to bring the best of online gaming to the racing genre and a dedicated, distinct game is the only way we could achieve what we wanted.

As you progress you'll be able to earn XP and cash, which will allow you to purchase cars and upgrades, and you'll constantly have new challenges and rivals.

You'll also be able to showcase your individuality by customising and modifying your cars. With over six billion possible combinations to choose from, you'll certainly stand out on the grid.

The Clean vs. The Dirty

Naturally these two types of racers don't get on very well, it's the Cats vs. Dogs of the racing...
