A fourth entry in the GRID series will be released this September on PC and consoles, developer Codemasters has announced.
The fourth game in the series, simply called GRID, will let players get behind the wheel of more than 70 vehicles and race in 12 locations around the round, including China, Japan, the U.K., the U.S.A., Spain, Australia, and more. There’s also a progression system in the game which will reward players with new liveries, player cards, teammates, achievements, and more.
The developer also announced that Fernando Alonso has assisted with the game’s development as a Race Consultant and will also appear in-game. In GRID, players will enter a series of events against members of FA Racing, Alonso’s Esports driving team, and will eventually come face-to-face with the man himself in his Renault R26 Formula One car.
“GRID as a racing franchise is revered by our community and we are delighted to bring it to the current generation of consoles,” Chris Smith, GRID Game Director at Codemasters, said. “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.
“We are also delighted to work alongside Fernando Alonso who is arguably one of the world’s greatest ever drivers. His experience and knowledge has enabled us to make improvements to both the performance and handling of our cars. We could not be more proud to have signed him both in-game and as a Race Consultant. We can’t wait for our players to experience the final version when it comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this September.”
GRID launches September 13th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
