GRID Multiplayer Revealed

Codemasters unveiled the multiplayer featuers of Race Driver: GRID today, coming to the PLAYSTATION 3, Xbox 360, and PC on May 30, 2008.

GRID is set feature 32 online race events taking in 80 circuits overall. It will support 12-player online races along with a ranking system that rewards your speed-demon skills.

You will get these points for winning races against higher-ranked opponents, as well as other things.

The online leaderboards track progress on every track in every car class, with the best performances being recorded as ghosts. You can download them and race against in Test Drive mode. We are guessing they are called ghost because they are so fast, you cannot see them.

The damge is one highly noticable thing in the online mode and in the gaem. Chief game designer Ralph Fulton describes the game’s damage as “incident-packed, aggressive, wheel-to-wheel racing”.

“Our wide range of motorsport disciplines, stunning locations and full damage 12-player races make for a uniquely spectacular race experience and our immersive new ranking system rewards player skill and deepens the challenge online,” he added.

GRID is shaping up to be one hell of a racer that I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting the first week it comes out. Meet me online when the day comes on May 30, 2008.
