GRID Autosport has just been announced by Codemasters

A new addition to Codemasters’ racing franchise has been announced today by the developers themselves. GRID Autosport aims to give the series a more authentic racing game feel and it’s all thanks to the community. Codemasters claims they have taken player feedback into consideration following the release of GRID 2 and have developed this new title with the fans wishes in mind.  The third title in the series will be a more focused motorsport game and will feature a more realistic handling system but the company states that it will definitely not feel like a simulator.

One of the core features of GRID Autosport will be its new discipline system, which consists of five unique types of racing. Touring, Endurance, Open-Wheel, Street Race and Drift will have their own style and feeling with the player having to consider a different approach for each of them. The game takes place across 22 locations, including Hockenheim, Sepang, San Francisco, Jarama and Yas Marina, and will feature more than 100 routes. Codemasters tells us that there will be more circuits in GRID Autosport than there are in Race Driver: Grid and Grid 2 combined.

The single player career mode will be an open one, this means that you are not required to compete in all the racing disciplines. Career will also bring back teammate racing and will allow you to tell your partner to attack the cars ahead or defend their position, with this feature you can also request information from your team engineer. Multiplayer will feature the RaceNet system which gives players the option of creating their own Racing Clubs and it will also regularly provide new challenges on a weekly basis.

As an end note, Codemasters mentioned that “We’re incredibly excited to lift the lid on GRID Autosport and we’re looking forward to the coming weeks and months. We’ve got a regular flow of new information and content coming your way and all of it starts tomorrow when we reveal our first team which sees the return of some old friends…” GRID Autosport will be released on June 27 for PS3, Xbox 360 and the PC.
