Race Driver: GRID gets Reloaded
Codemasters have informed us that they will be releasing a premium edition of Race Driver: GRID – including a raft of additional goodies – for the very reasonable sum of £24.99. Interested? Then read on.
Released in 2008, Race Driver: GRID came out of leftfield and completely bowled people over. Featuring sublime graphics, impressive car deformation and an interesting ‘rewind’ feature, it made other more established racers feel more Chevette than Corvette.
Fast forward two years, and the game still stands toe to toe with the latest batch of racing games. Codemasters want to remind us of this, and are bringing out Race Driver: GRID Reloaded on March 11th for PAL regions, and March 12th for the UK – Sorry America but this isn’t for you, although you will be able to buy the DLC on the PSN.
So what’s included? Feast your eyes on this;
“Further extending the original, two DLC codes will be included in Race Driver: GRID Reloaded and enable players to download the ‘Prestige’ and ‘8-ball’ DLC packs, adding 18 cars, new multiplayer modes and a new circuit to the game.
The new Prestige Pack introduces the beautifully realised, legendary Australian Bathurst circuit and 10 of the planet’s most desirable cars, including the Ferrari F430 GTC, Bugatti Veyron and Ferrari F575 GTC. Gamers can also get behind the wheel of the Mercedes SLR McLaren 722, Lotus 2-Eleven, Lamborghini Gallardo GT, Mazda Furai, Jaguar XKR GT3, Honda Integra Type-R (DC5) and Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4.
The 8 Ball Pack delivers eight superb high performance new cars to drive in the game’s ‘Race Day’ mode and online races. New featured cars include the McLaren F1 GTR, TVR Cerbera Speed 12, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, Honda S2000, Nissan GT-R (S-G2008), VW Nardo, Pontiac Firebird and the Volvo C30. The 8 Ball pack also comes complete with two new multiplayer events to compete in set on existing circuits from across Race Driver: GRID’s three continents and designed to test drivers to their very limit online.”
So what do you think? Is this worth getting, or will you be saving that £24.99 to put towards Gran Turismo 5, Split/Second: Velocity or Blur?
