GRID 2019’s first gameplay has been released

Yesterday, Codemasters announced that their GRID series was getting rebooted, returning the game to PC and console platforms on September 13th 2019. The game will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and on PC, via Steam, spanning 4 continents and across a mixture of the world’s most famous city streets and racing circuits. Today is the first time that gamers will be able to see this title in action. 

Fans of the series will be glad to know that that a wide range of racing disciplines and vehicle types will remain within the game, with Circuit, Street Racing, Ovals, Hot Laps, Point-to-Point and World Time Attack race types being available. GT, Touring, Stock, Muscle, Super-Modified and more car types will be available within the game. 

GRID aims to satisfy both arcade and simulation racers, packing responsive controls and a learning curve which will rewards players for taking risks and pushing their racing skills to the next level. A realistic damage system will see vehicle performance and handling degrade if things become too violent, and repeated pain trading with specific drivers will see them emerge as a nemesis, who will stop at nothing to get their revenge as races progress. 

Codemasters has confirmed that Fernando Alonso will act as a Race Consultant for the game, and will appear within the game. Alonso’s Esports driving team “FA Racing” will also appear within GRID 2019, and players will be able to challenge the former World Champion inside his Renault R26 F1 car. 

Below is a section of gameplay for GRID 2019. More gameplay is available on the title’s Steam page. 


GRID 2019 is currently available to pre-order on Steam for £44.99, with the game’s “Ultimate Edition” granting PC gamers three days of early access gaming and the game’s first three seasons of additional content for £64.99.
