Codemasters has announced a reboot of sorts for its GRID Racedriver series. Trimming the name down to simply ‘GRID’, the new simulation racer will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 13th, 2019.

Officially the fourth installment in the series, GRID provides players with four different continents to race in, offering both street and circuit races as well as a choice of GT, Touring, Stock, Muscle, Super-Modified cars, and more.

Former F1 world champion Fernando Alonso is lending his expertise to GRID, with him and his team acting as consultants as regards the game’s card handling. "Since I have driven in F1, Endurance and Stock Racing, GRID is the ideal game for me, and I am very happy that the studio has added me and my team,” says Alonso. “GRID offers a lot of variety, and I can not wait to see the players come to me."

It sounds as if there’s going to be a great deal of flexibility in how players can race in GRID, with the ability to tune the game towards arcade or simulation racing depending on your preferences. There’s also going to be full simulated damage models, a rarity in some racing games these days, as well as ongoing nemesis relationships if you crunch into a rival driver once too often.

"GRID is a series that our community loves, and we're very excited to bring it to the next-generation consoles," says Chris Smith, GRID game director at Codemasters. "The game offers a lot of variety and depth, with many modern or legendary cars to drive in different locations and in different racing formats. Renowned for its grip, the game will appeal to all types of players, whether they are just there to have fun or they are fans of more serious simulations.”

GRID launches on September 13th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Is it just me or this Trailer is kinda similar to NFS Shift 2's first Trailer. Even the DVD cover is similar :D

Grid is my favorite racing franchise, if it has the customizability of Race Driver: Grid and abit of team management too that would be perfect.

Just today was going through a list of all racing games I could remember and was wondering why there were so few good ones in recent times. So glad to hear this !

If it's similar to GRID(2008) then I might consider this. The last 2 release were kinda disappointing...

Grid autosport was actually pretty good, especially playing it online.
