    Overview

    Developed by Codemasters Southam based in the United Kingdom, GRID 2 is the sequel to the "reboot" of the TOCA Race Driver series, GRID. GRID 2 employs the EGO 3.0 engine, the same engine in the previous Codemaster game Dirt 3 and features a new handling system 'TrueFeel', which tries to improve the balance in racing games between accessibility and realism.

    GRID 2 has races in a variety of locales influenced by the Formula 1 calender such as Abu Dhabi, Chicago, the California Coast and Paris. They also did not include a dashboard view claiming that "only 5% ever use it". The game was released on May 28, 2013 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

    TrueFeel aims to create a balance between the accessibility of arcade racing games with the realism of simulation racing games. Codemaster does this by collecting around 75 sets of technical data per-vehicle. The aim is to create a racing game that's handling can be learned within a few laps but offers depth past those first races after that.

    Multiplayer

    GRID 2 has a customization multiplayer progression system powered by RaceNet. By competing with rivals and completing objectives, GRID 2 rewards the player for their progress similar to the progression system found in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. GRID 2 multiplayer also features fully customizable championships and a dynamic ranking system.
