GRID Season 2 Coming February 12 - Track Day Supercars

Recommended Posts

Hey team - we've kept you waiting long enough to find out what's coming to Season 2 for GRID, so let's jump straight in, shall we?

GRID’s next slate of post-launch content takes things up a gear, with Season 2 and the Track Day Supercars pack, launching February 12 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Six new cars, built for both beauty and speed, drop into GRID, alongside another Career mode expansion and the addition of a world-renowned circuit. Ultimate Edition players receive the full slate of content, and there’s plenty of additions that are free for all players, too.

So, let’s take a look at what’s coming next to GRID...

Track Day Supercars - Four New Cars

Season 2’s line-up of new cars is a stunning selection of exotic, powerful, ground-breaking machines, crafted by the world’s most famous manufacturers.

Ultimate Edition players receive access to the Ferrari FXX, Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro, Brabham BT62, and the Pagani Zonda Revolución. In Multiplayer, the Pagani Zonda will be available to race as a loan car for all players.

Two Bonus Cars

But that’s not all – the Track Day Supercar pack includes two more cars, available to everyone. Good luck taming the Ferrari 599XX Evo, and the Ford GT Heritage Edition – two more automotive monsters that dominate both the road and the racetrack.

New Circuit: Red Bull Ring

We’re once again adding to GRID’s list of circuits in Season 2, with a venue that’s been a staple of world motorsport championships for 50 years. This is Austria, and this is the Red Bull Ring.

With its relatively unchanged layout since 1996, the Red Bull Ring is known for creating dramatic racing, with huge braking zones and overtaking opportunities galore. Find the uphill apex at the Niki Lauda Curve, soar up the mountainside, and dare to brake later than the rest into the intimidating Turn 2.

Infield, shorter, and reverse routes of the Red Bull Ring are also included, with each route playable in all weather conditions. The new circuit is available to all GRID players in Career, Free Play, and Multiplayer.

New Career Expansion

Finally, Season 2 brings a further expansion to Career mode, with an extra 33 events using the Red Bull Ring and four Track Day Supercars. Ultimate Edition players can find the events in the new tab, from the Career menu. Experience our hand-picked selection of races, with two new threads, fresh Showdown events, and the latest Ravenwest Motorsport challenge.

As always, with a new season for GRID comes more technical improvements and community-requested additions. The headline in this area for Season 2 is the option to extend the length of races in Career mode - full details on this addition, available for all players, is on the Codemasters Forums. This follows the recent free addition of Session Search to Multiplayer - a public lobbies system that allows players to search and enter sessions created by others.

Sound like enough to Get Your Heart Racing? Be a GRID Ultimate Edition player to receive not just all of Season 2 and the Track Day Supercars, but all Season 1 – Hot Hatch Showdown content, and any future additions to GRID. The Track Day Supercars pack, consisting of the four exclusive cars and 33 Career events, will also be available to purchase separately on the Steam, Xbox and Microsoft stores. Finally, Season 2 will also be coming to Google Stadia at a later date - follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay up to date on that and much more.

For now though, get ready for six new supercars, a world-famous circuit, and much more with Season 2 of GRID.

I'm a bit confused about the cars.

Why you keep mentioning that there are 4 supercars and then 6, and the 4 again?

What's the deal with those 2 extra cars? 

All the six cars are in the seasons -> supercars category ?

@ChrisGrovesMCM are you going to ger rid of that terribe tone mapping, when everything is overbrighted or overtinted? Or this is an artistic vision too?

Also, are you going to improve LOD and add high option for it? Noone likes to see popping-up shadows and LOD changing right before his car in 2020...

I wanted to ask about trees too, but I guess this is enough for today. Thanks.

It's all explained in the text: 

- Track Day Supercars pack is the first four cars mentioned, for Ultimate Edition players 

- Then there are two bonus cars, available for everyone to use 

 

It's the same as Season 1. We just wanted to get in two more cars and make them playable for everyone. 🙂

These cars, extra Career events, really cool. But Red Bull Ring??? Seriously? Third time just like Paris? Codies, WHY??? Couldn't you add some tracks from Racedriver GRID or GRID Autosport, which featured the series once, for example Milan (Racedriver GRID) or Hockenheimring (GRID Autosport)? And whic track you are going to add in Season 3? Yas Marina? Or maybe Chicago? 👎

At least tracks are free.

Looks nice, how much extra was the Ultimate Edition again?

I cannot wait until the 9 track pack lands in Season 3 with all the new textures

We mainly need tracks. Here are my ideas. This may be long. (Based off the categories of DLC career)

Street Pack - 4 tracks: (Street packs from the past GRID games)

  • Milan - Italy (Iconic Cathedral and twisty turns)
  • Dubai - United Arab Emirates (High speeds give way to unforgiving turns)
  • Washington - United States (Perfect for Touring Cars)
  • Chicago - United States (Grid based city, with 90 Degree Turns)

Professional Racing Pack - 4 tracks: (Tracks used in the Highest levels of Auto Racing)

  • Yas Marina Circuit - United Arab Emirates (Formula One)
  • Daytona International Speedway - United States (Daytona 500 and Rolex 24)
  • Circuit Paul Ricard - France (Formula One and GT World Challenge Europe)
  • Mount Panorama - Australia (Bathurst 12 hour and V8 Enduro Round)

Classic Track Pack - 3 Tracks: (Tracks that have existed a long time ago and are still active)

  • Oulton Park - United Kingdom (1953 to Present)
  • Nurburgring - Germany (1927 to Present)
  • Autodromo Internationale Monza - Italy (1922 to Present)

Modern Track Pack - 3 Tracks: (Tracks made in Contemporary times with the best grade materials)

  • Bahrain International Circuit - Bahrain (Has FIA Grade 1 plus FIA Institute Centre of Excellence award)
  • Circuit of The Americas - United States (Used in WEC, INDYCAR, and Pirelli World Challenge)
  • Marina Bay - Singapore (Used in Formula One, and is very complex to navigate)

WOW, that was long, and more will be to come once Season 3 is announced!

So all 6 cars belong to the same category, and all can race each other?

That's what I wanted to know.

I saddly have to say this game is very very boring now 😞 It has sooo much Potential but a big patch for each Season is not enough 😞

AI is still to slow

No Drift

NO Splitscreen, I played it very often with my friend on my computer in grid autosport

Not enough Tracks, always the same Tracks

Let's hope they will Update this game very soon with a lot of Patches

Dirt Rally 2.0 is a very good game I love it, F1 2019 was also very cool but this was saddly the baddest game last year from you 😞

You can so much more, you can see it in your other games (Toca, DTM Race Driver, Dirt Series, F1 Series)

Dark Side? No I am not at the dark side but I am on the very Dissapointed Side, This game came out at October 11th and now it is February and we only get the big Updates with each new Season, this is in my opinion very sad.... If the big issues like AI and more are still not fixed in the Season 2 Update, I think I will never play this game again and play Dirt Rally 2.0 from the same developer, this is amazing and very good and all issues are fixed, also the AI from f1 2019 is just incredible, this is what a AI should be.

Exactly. I also prefer 'DiRT Rally 2.0' much more from 'GRID'. 'GRID' has got to many issues and 'holes' in content and releasing only Season content, which actually adds copied content doesn't help the game. It is not an improvement. I would even say that it is nonsense to release Season 3. But if it has got to be released, then I hope this is the last Season and their next step will be 'Racedriver GRID' remastered or maybe 'GRID Autosport 2', which would be more in line with the original GRID in every single aspect of the game.

Let it be their last time they release such GRID game like the latest one.
