Codemasters today released a new trailer for the upcoming GRID Autosport. Street racing discipline is just one of five new modes in the game’s world of professional motorsport. The above video shows the cars that are going to be available in the street discipline racing wheel-to-wheel.
Also in the above trailer, members of Piston Heads will no doubt recognise Dan Trent and Matt Burton explaining street racing. Dan Trent explains what it feels like to race on street circuits, saying, “driving on a tight circuit with no run off is very, very different from driving on the circuits. [With] Tracks with closed fences by the sides, narrow tracks, you get a heightened sense of speed. Everything is ramped up – the fear factor, the excitement, the adrenaline, everything is magnified. You just know that you can’t afford to make any kind of mistake.”
Matt Burton comments on the unique experience of racing supercars as featured in GRID Autosport, “it’s the relentlessness of the acceleration. The exciting thing with a supercar is having that much power that it never quite feels like it’s tailing off. There’s nothing better really when you’re a car fan. It’s like nothing else.”
GRID Autosport is set for release June 24th in the USA and release on June 27th in Europe for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Windows PC and for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
