Namco Bandai has set the A/NZ release of Grid 2 for May 30.
Developed by Codemasters, the Grid series has been out of the spotlight since the debut of 2008’s Race Driver: Grid, as the studio instead focused on its rally themed Dirt series.
As in the previous title, GRID 2 puts the player behind the wheel of high performance vehicles spanning four decades.
The player takes part in motorsport championships held on city streets, licensed circuits and mountain roads in locations ranging from Paris to Abu Dhabi, Chicago, California and more.
In addition to a single player career mode, Grid 2 has a multiplayer component that connects to RaceNet, the online community portal for Codemasters Racing games.
The multiplayer mode makes use of a unique progression system that contains deep customisation options and integration, tracking player’s races, rewards and rivals.
Depending on the retailer Grid 2 is sold at, the game will come with pre-order bonus items and extra content, redeemable via download on PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and on PC.
The game will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
