Grid 2: Alpha Gameplay Footage Released

Eurogamer Expo 2012 begins tomorrow but developer Codemasters wants us to know today as to what we should expect from their Grid 2 booth in the coming days.

There will be two modes of the game made available to the public for the first time. The first is a racing track set in the streets of Chicago. This stage will have muscle cars going about the city sounding their throaty engines.

The second stage is a car vs car featuring a Boss Mustang and a classic Mustang Mach 1 burning rubber on the California Coast-line.

A video sample of the first stage can be seen below. The trailer is labelled as ‘alpha code’ but it still definitely looks neat with nice rough engine sounds that remind me of the original Grid title.

The action is shown through the ‘hood view’ which might be because the cockpit view has not been included in the alpha stage of the game. However, knowing the developers experience with racing titles, you can rest assure that it will be added to the final game.

Codemasters will also hold a developer session on Saturday which will give us more information about the game.
