The graphics engine used on the development is an upgraded version of the NEON engine, which was also used on the first title and Grid; albeit with the name EGO. The replay features will be enhanced with new “tricks” and real life professional drivers such as Travis Pastrana and Ken Block will make their appearance in the single player career.
