Fourth Installment in the Game Franchise is a Reboot

It has been more than a decade now since Codemasters launched the first GRID racing game. Now they have announced that the fourth installment in the series is just on the horizon. Although they are not calling it GRID 4, but simply calling it ‘Grid’ once again. Essentially rebooting the franchise.

IGN has the exclusive reveal trailer which you can see below:

Judging by the teaser trailer, the rewind feature will be back. Just like the original game, it will have a realistically simulated damage system that will affect performance. Although much improved. Furthermore, there will be a “nemesis” system so players can expect AI drivers to take their revenge.

The game is expected to straddle between arcade and sim realism, also offering a “perfect balance between risk and reward”. Grid will feature racing across a range of classes, including GT, Touring, Stock, Muscle, Super-Modified, and a number of different race types.
