GRID 2: LiveRoutes Trailer

Making us even more excited for the release of GRID 2, Codemasters today revealed another new feature; LiveRoutes, which will feature exclusively in GRID 2.

Offering millions of route possibilities, LiveRoutes comes into play for specific events in the game’s city environments – Paris, Barcelona, Chicago, Miami and Dubai. Junctions on LiveRoutes circuits can switch the track up to six different ways, as LiveRoutes randomly selects a route through the city.

LiveRoutes is the new challenge event that we’re most proud of in GRID 2. It’s as fresh to racing games as Flashback was when we introduced it as a mechanic in the original GRID.

said Clive Moody, Senior Executive Producer for GRID 2 at Codemasters.

In a LiveRoutes event, you don’t know what’s coming next and it turns each race into a test of your racecraft, car handling and reactions on circuits that cannot be learnt. In both career mode and online, LiveRoutes offers near limitless possibilities in every race and it’s a great leveller, even for the most experienced racing game players.

So there have it, LiveRoutes sounds like a great new features. The new LiveRoutes video (below) shows how the road changes ahead dynamically on different play-throughs, creating new routes through GRID 2’s Paris Street Racing environment. Let us know your thoughts below.
