Grid 2 – Two McLarens Go Head-to-Head In Live Action Video
This week Codemasters released an exciting new video for Grid 2 showing both dramatic live action and stunning in-game footage of two equally gorgeous 592bhp McLaren MP4-12c’s racing at the great Brands Hatch Circuit.
Set for release this summer Grid 2 will be available this summer for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Windows PC. In the latest action video part one of three motoring journalist Chris Harris gives an insight into the car handling and vehicle selection for the game. In the video, Chris throws his McLaren around the famous circuit in pursuit of McLaren test driver Mat Jackson and uses in-game expertise from GRID 2 and Codemasters staff to gain the advantage. The video shows how Brands Hatch is created in-game and features stunning real life footage of the stunning McLarens power-sliding around some of the most iconic corners in racing.
“I’m thoroughly enjoying working on these videos for GRID 2, and adding a few pointers to help develop the handling on some of the key cars in the game. It’s a great opportunity to explore the ever-closer relationship between real driving and the virtual world,” said Chris Harris. “As someone who spends so much time in the latest supercars, it’s been fascinating seeing the intricacies of the Codemasters development process used to create these virtual machines, and the accuracy of the results is mind-bending!”
