Developer Codemasters has released a new trailer for the upcoming racing game GRID Autosport, which showcases its Endurance racing.
“You can never win a race from the first corner,” member of the Oman Racing Team Ahmad Al Harthy said in the trailer, which includes both gameplay footage and interviews with professional drivers. In working on Endurance racing, Codemasters said it has consulted with professional drivers and experts at Autosport magazine to “distil the experience into scalable races, whether online or in career mode.”
The game’s extended races in Endurance events will challenge players to manage tire wear, which will affect their performance and handling, and in career mode, Endurance events are also set at night to provide an extra challenge.
In Endurance events, you’ll be able to drive contemporary and classic cars including the Aston Martin N24 V12 Zagato, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3, McLaren 12C GT3, Audi R8 LMS Ultra, Lola B12/80, Shelby Cobra “Daytona” Coupe, Ford GT40 MK1 and more on race circuits like Yas Marina, Sepang and Hockenheimring.
GRID Autosport is due to launch June 24 in the U.S. (June 27 for Europe) for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. It’s not coming to Xbox One or PlayStation 4, and that’s because Codemasters did not want to “rush” it.
