Codemasters has lifted the hood on GRID 2's multiplayer today, showing off the video uploading integration and competitive social aspects that come with RaceNet, which is also accessible on mobile devices. Promising a progression system separate from the career mode, GRID 2's multiplayer will offer greater depth, more progression and more rewards for players.

Quick races online for up to 12 players are among the multiplayer options alongside 2-player split-screen, as well as custom races and predefined playlists. Anti-griefing tech also ensures that aggressive players can trade paint together, while cleaner drivers can find similar racers online. There's also up to 6 billion customisation combinations on offer for your rides, with a host of liver creating options and paint jobs.

Game Modes include Race (Including LiveRoutes), Endurance, Drift, Touge, Checkpoint, Face Off, Time Attack, and Global Challenge events that include Overtake and Power Lap, with the ability to forge global rivalries and gain RaceNet followers for additional XP rewards and in-game cash, even when said rivals are offline.

Check out the first multiplayer screenshots below. There's 11 to look at in the gallery. GRID 2 is out on May 28th in North America and May 31st in Europe.

Loved GRID. This was on my to buy list but then got shunted back to the borrow of the brother in law list. Mainly due to no cockpit view. I know it sounds stupid reason but I can't play any racing game well at all unless there is a cockpit view. I was horrendous at GRID until i changed camera to cockpit view then the wins just cam rolling in. Shame really, looks good.

Just hope the option to turn collisions off and make the cars ghosts in order for cleaner races online is available day 1.I remember GRID not having that option and the online MP was utterly horrible since ppl just wanted to wreck you instead of racing.

No cockpit view takes out most of the immersion of any realistic type racing game. It's not needed for straight up arcade racers, but even then, it's nice to have. Like in Midnight Club L.A.
I'll probably just wait until this game is down to $20 or so.

@9 That is not a stupid reason. Cockpit view just made racing feel infinitely more satisfying. As I said in my previous comment(BTW, sorry for double post), it's much more immersive and adds to the fun.
