Catch A Glimpse Of GRID 2

Today marks the release of Codemasters’ first full-length gameplay trailer for its much-anticipated racer, GRID 2. However, while the video is certainly impressive and appreciated, the term ‘full-length’ is used rather loosely here. In reality, the actual gameplay content is short and sweet, coming in at less than a minute in length. Then again, at least it’s something, giving us a short glimpse at what could end up being 2013’s best racing game.

GRID 2 will release on May 28th, for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Read on for more information regarding this visceral automotive experience, including its retailer exclusive pre-order bonuses.
