Codemasters’ 2013 racer Grid 2 is a reasonably geriatric entry within the car-wot-goes-fast pantheon – so outdated that RPS’s prior protection of it was written by the impossibly historical likes of Rossignol, J. and Smith, A. – however we sure did like it again then.
I’ve simply been again in and, yeah, it nonetheless seems and feels dang good for a non-car-gonk like me. Its cheeseball mix of arcadey racing, ludicrous injury modelling, time-rewinding, Chosen One storytelling and hilariously of-the-time achievement titles together with “Here’s My Number, Call Me Maybe?” holds up remarkably effectively. I’d fortunately play that each one day lengthy. And free, as it’s so is as long as you snag earlier than the tip of the weekend, is doubly arduous to argue with.
Humble are offering Grid 2 up gratis to anybody who indicators up their electronic mail publication (electronic mail newsletters are all the fad once more lately – even we’ve got one, and, not like the primary time we tried doing that, it’s truly common). You’ll must get in earlier than 3am UK / 10am PT this Sunday, March 17.
That trailer is fiddled-with advertising fluff, after all, however the screenshots above and under present how the factor truly seems working maxed-out at 3440×1440 on my PC right this moment. Pretty, fairly good, all issues thought-about.
If you do, you’ll get despatched Steam keys for the bottom game and the Bathurst and Spa-Francorchamps observe packs – which it’s essential redeem by March 21, otherwise you’ll by no means get to listen to such recent, modern soundbites as “I couldn’t keep track of the number of camera phones focused on you”.
