The upcoming GRID reboot from Codemasters was originally due to hit shelves this September, however, the release has now been delayed to give “added exposure” to the title.
The delay will see the racer launch on October 11, some four weeks later than originally planned.
Codemasters have stated that buyers of the Ultimate Edition will still receive the title three days earlier, October 8. Furthermore, the development team has confirmed GRID will remain a launch title for Google Stadia later in the year.
GRID features some of the world’s most famous city streets and race circuits and gives players the chance to get behind a range of different racing cars from categories such as GT, Touring, Stock, Muscle, Super-Modified and more.
GRID’s single-player career mode will take some cues from Project CARS with its accolades system. Players can progress through the career mode by acquiring cards, beating other opponents and reaching specific milestones along the way.
The career mode climaxes with a head-to-head battle against Fernando Alonso in his championship-winning Renault R26 Formula One car. Alonso’s FA Racing Esports team will also feature in GRID, the iconic racing driver will also assist the development of the title as a “race consultant”.
GRID will release on October 11 2019, across the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Ultimate Edition buyers will receive the title on October 8, 2019.
