GRID 2 Celebrates Indy 500 Weekend With Trailer for Indy DLC/Pre-Order Bonus

GRID 2 Celebrates Indy 500 Weekend With Trailer for Indy DLC/Pre-Order Bonus

The Indy 500 is this weekend along with the Monte Carlo Grand Prix and the Champions League final. Only one of these major sporting events is coming to a game as DLC, that is the Indy 500 which will appear in GRID 2 either as DLC or pre-order content with amazon.co.uk. GAME has a Brands Hatch bonus offer while Steam is going with a pre-order rewards system. It all gets a bit confusing and frankly, to me it this retailer exclusive pre-order bonus content is a bit naff. That’s a rant for another time though as you can just sit back and dream of what might be as you watch an Indy car race around Indianapolis. Beware, GRID 2 isn’t indie.

It is the year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within.

Grid 2 – Hands On

Grid 2 – Hands On

I had no idea what it was going to be like playing a modern racing game with a wheel and pedals until I hit Grid 2 at the Eurogamer Expo. The last time I did was in an ancient beat up SEGA Rally Arcade unit that was gathering dust in my University Students Union. So playing Codemasters’ next big racer with a full wheel and pedal setup was like walking on Mars to me, I didn’t have a clue how things were going to work.

To be honest, it didn’t really work; I spent more time smashing my Ford Mustang into pieces on various trees and rocks than actually driving smoothly on the road in the point-to-point race I was in. This was just one of the demo booths available for Grid 2, the other was a traditional two-lap race with a bunch of AI opponents and an Xbox 360 controller.

Oh my! That is a teaser trailer for Grid 2 from Codemasters and that has really caught my attention. The original was an awesome reboot of the TOCA series and few titles since have quite managed to match it. The teaser promised something else to come, probably the full reveal, next week on the 8th of August. Hell. Yes.
