2d ago - Codemasters developer Ben Walke announced today that Grid: Autosport PS3 is coming to PlayStation 3 on June 24th, 2014.

To quote: Hey, PlayStation fans! It's great to be back on the blog, and today I'm incredibly excited to bring you news of our latest game - Grid: Autosport on PS3.

Grid 2 raced off into a more narrative-led world with accessible controls, and it's clear that for many of you that wasn't what you wanted or expected from it. So with Grid: Autosport we had the opportunity to make a much more focused motorsport game, a desire that many of you have expressed directly to us, and a game that in spirit goes back to some of our earlier titles in terms of content and handling.

The Handling

As ever, our handling model has had a lot of effort put into it, and you'll really notice the difference, we think, from Grid 2. For Grid: Autosport, we've gone back to a more authentic handling style. It's definitely not a full simulation - we want it to be authentic, not clinical - but it's more towards that end of the spectrum than before.

If anything, we believe the handling is actually one or two steps further towards simulation than Race Driver: Grid, to give you an idea.
