Codemasters showcases LiveRoutes system for Grid 2
| by Shunal Doke |
Grid 2 is shaping up to be one of the most interesting racing games in a long time. According to Eurogamer, the game will debut a new system called LiveRoutes. It will be an optional feature in the game used to change the routes on race courses on a lap-by-lap basis. During the demo of the game at the weekend’s Eurogamer Expo, the system was shown off on the Chicago race circuit. Over two laps, one of the sections had changed in the second lap – a straight road was replaced by a left-right switchback.
Back in August, Codemasters had released an announcement trailer for the game. The trailer had shown off some bits of the new EGO Engine 3.0. The original game, Grid is still counted as one of the best arcade racing games ever. Many racing games have tried to attain the fine balance between arcade and simulation, but none of them did it as well as Grid. It was one of the first games outside the Dirt franchise to employ the EGO engine, showcasing stunning visuals and bone crunching crashes in urban and circuit environments.
