Grid: Autosport Discussion [PS3]

A new racing game to be released on PS3, X360 and PC

Grid Autosport

"Codemasters has announced Grid Autosport, a new standalone title that's coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on 27th June - and a game that puts the emphasis firmly back on motorsport for the series.

Developed in Codemasters' main studio, Grid Autosport is a response to some of the feedback received after the release of Grid 2 last year, and an attempt to placate some of the series' traditional fans.

To that end there is now more authentic motorsport racing, with open-wheel cars ranging from F3 to IndyCar, tin-top action plus GT and endurance action as well as returning drift and supercar content. Like in the original Grid, the campaign is structured around the running of a team, with the player able to acquire sponsors and teammates as they work across five separate disciplines included in Grid Autosport.

While the name - which is shared with a long-running motorsport magazine - doesn't mark an official partnership, the editorial staff at Autosport have lent their expertise to the game, alongside racing drivers such as BTCC contenders Matt Neal and Andrew Jordan"

Yeah I'm looking forward to this if it's a return to what the original GRID was, I enjoyed 2 but still much prefer 1.

Something quite telling in the interview regarding next gen I noticed was the reason that they are still working hard on the next gen engine at the moment. So I see why it's not hitting next gen but it concerns me....

Will F1 be ready for next gen or do we have to deal with a limited f1 game this year based on their 8 year old EGO engine I really hope not as that engine is to old to produce a brilliant racing game in the current climate.

Doubt we will find out anything about the new F1 game till June at the earliest

Maybe they should stop hashing out the GRID name now. The first game was good, but the second was apparently lacking a certain something. That being said, I immensely enjoyed racing on the original GRID.

I don't think the BTCC was announced but there's a good chance with the likes of f3 being in this game.

Personally I think the crew will be fantastic in think it will take the social aspect far beyond what need for speed rivals did and I think it will handle much better than GRID

This for me was codes pinnacle. I played this game for years, even after the ps2 was launched. Absolutely brilliant game. The full BTCC calendar and all the cars. I even stopped playing GT and GT2 when this came out.

Since this game all codies efforts have fallen short imo. They've gone to American, sold there sole to the devil.

Good to see Codemasters return to more of a classic racer, at least they are listening   <ns>
It does show how thinly they are stretched though, in my opinion. As CG suggests, it does put serious question marks over F1 on PS4 this year.
