It's easy to think that Grid 2 offers more of the same as its predecessor, but that hasn't stopped Codemasters attempting to innovate the genre. Whereas Grid was known for introducing the now obligatory Flashback system to racing games, Grid 2 has its ownquirky trick up its wheel arch: LiveRoutes.
First unveiled in the Eurogamer Expo last year, the unique system will dynamically alter the route of the circuit in real-time, potentially presenting new challenges at every corner and therefore ramp up the intensity with its unpredictability. Unsurprisingly, LiveRoutes will only be seen in specific race events situated in Grid 2's fictional city circuits spanning locations set in Paris, Barcelona, Chicago, Miami and Dubai, where Codemasters have free reign to unleash their creativity.
You can see how it all works for yourself in this newly-released trailer from Codemasters:
