News Weekly Racing Video Game News: Back on the GRID

Posted on

In this week's Weekly Racing Video Game News round-up, Codemasters get back on the grid with GRID Autosport, a spin-off that aims to rectify everything wrong with Grid 2. Expect motorsport to be back at the forefront, an improved authentic handling model and not one, but two cockpit cameras. You can't say Codemasters don't listen to their community. The catch? It's coming soon to a PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 near you only. 

In contrast, one game that is being designed with next-gen in mind is Project CARS, and we were treated to the first official trailer as it gears up for launch in November. Don't worry, it's okay to drool. Just mind the paintwork.

Project CARS is even making a splash on Wii U, which is something of a novelty considering the platform isn't exactly overrun with must-have racing games. That is all about to change however with the release of Mario Kart 8. There's just one problem: chances are you probably don't own a Wii U, since its sales figures are somewhat dismal. What you need, then, is the convenient Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle.

Elsewhere, iRacing has had a monumental content update, as will Assetto Corsa with an upcoming multiplayer update and we also have a host of new in-game car announcements.

All this and more can be found in your Weekly Racing Video Game News round-up. Links to all articles discussed in the video can be found below.
