Codemaster’s have taken the wraps off of Grid 2, their next racing game, due out in 2013. The sequel to 2009’s breakout racing hit puts players in the role of unnamed character. This time around it is not simply about collecting cars, sponsorships and unlocking tracks but about following a player character as they progress through the world of sponsored racing. Grid 2 is set for release on PS3, PC and Xbox 360 sometime next year, jam packed with a more expansive career mode and online multiplayer.
Right now Codemasters is running a promotion through RaceNet, their online news portal. By liking their page on either facebook or twitter you can help unlock special rewards tied to Grid 2. Some of the perks include in game screenshots, trailers and more.
If you’re looking for something a little substantial why not check out the debut trailer. Watch as multiple cars take to the racetrack, bumping and grinding against each other. Just like the first game there’s some crazy physics action in play as cars spin out of control fly off the course into piles of wreckage. Combined with the cinematic camera angles and dramatic music that defined the first game, we can’t wait to see more!
