Semi-classic racer Grid 2 is free for keepsiesMar 15, 2019 - Rock, Paper, ShotgunCodemasters’ 2013 racer Grid 2 is a fairly geriatric entry in the car-wot-goes-fast pantheon – so old that RPS’s prior coverage of it was written by the impossibly ancient likes of Rossignol, J. and Smith, A. – but we sure did like it back then. I’ve just been back in and, yeah, it still looks and feels dang good for a non-car-gonk like me. Its cheeseball blend of arcadey racing, ludicrous damage modelling, time-rewinding, Chosen One storytelling and hilariously of-the-time achievement titles including “Here’s My Number, Call Me Maybe?” holds up remarkably well. I’d happily play that all day long. And free, as it is so is so long as you snag before the end of the weekend, is doubly hard to argue with. (more…) Grid 2 and a pair of track packs are free on the Humble Store until SundayMar 14, 2019 - PC GamerThe Codemasters racing game Grid 2 is an oldie but a goodie, earning 82/100 in our 2013 review. "More fun than a sim," we said, and "spectacular to look at," with challenging AI, plenty to do, and smooth performance on a mid-range rig. It's a testament to the game's durability that six years after release, it's still selling for $30 at regular price. For the next three days on the Humble Store, however, it is free.  And not just Grid 2, but also the Bathurst and Spa-Francorchamps track packs, each with new tracks to tear up and new cars to do it with. Just click the "Get the Game" button and follow the subsequent instructions, and Steam keys for all will be delivered unto you. Take note that the keys themselves are time-limited, and must be redeemed on Steam by 10 am PT on March 21, or they will expire and you will be left with nothing.  The Humble Store Grid 2 freebie will be available until 10 am PT on March 17, or while supplies last. Since that does actually happen—a limited number of codes are available for each giveaway—you probably shouldn't dawdle.  GRID Franchise is now Today's Steam Deal!Apr 28, 2017 - Community AnnouncementsGRID Franchise is now Today's Steam Deal!Daily Deal - GRID Franchise, 75% OffApr 27, 2017 - AnnouncementToday's Deal: Save 75% on the GRID Franchise!* Look for the deals each day on the front page of Steam.

Introducing GRID AutosportApr 22, 2014 - Community AnnouncementsWe’re very pleased today to announce GRID Autosport, the next game in the GRID series and descendant of TOCA Touring Cars. GRID Autosport aims to move the series back in line as a more authentic racing game and below you’ll be finding out some of the ways we’ll be doing that. Hopefully, you’ll be seeing plenty of news, shiny screenshots and video on your favourite websites and in magazines on our announcement, but we thought it’d be a good time to talk directly to you about what the game is, why we’ve done it and the direction we’re headed in. Particularly as this game is, at its heart, inspired by you guys, our core community. On release of GRID 2, I think it’s fair to say that through listening to you guys and a after a substantial amount of reflection, we hadn’t quite achieved everything we set out to do. We’re proud of the game, really delighted with some of the great reviews for it, but we’re not above admitting that we made a few decisions that perhaps we shouldn’t have, and perhaps moved some of the aspects of the game too far away from our core fanbase. Read more about it over on the blog To TOCA: GRID Autosport AnnouncedApr 22, 2014 - Rock, Paper, ShotgunI liked GRID 2 quite a lot but I’m some kind of racing simulation heathen who has no qualms incorporating a little bump and grind into the art of the automobile. Codemasters manage to avoid the phrase ‘going back to our roots’ when describing the newly announced follow-up, GRID Autosport, but a lengthy and informative blogpost suggests that’s exactly what they aim to do. On release of GRID 2, I think it s fair to say that through listening to you guys and a after a substantial amount of reflection, we hadn t quite achieved everything we set out to do…we re not above admitting that we made a few decisions that perhaps we shouldn t have, and perhaps moved some of the aspects of the game too far away from our core fanbase.
