    UPDATE: Download the demo: click here

    Codemasters has released the first images of Race Driver: Grid (Formerly known as Race Drive One).

    It's a complete turnover of the RD-series and is focused on what's going on between the starting grid and the finish, according to Ralph Fulton (Head Games Design at Codemasters). Fulton also said that there's no place for designing race outfits and collecting cars.

    Race Driver Grid will use the Colin McRae: DiRT engine with an increased damage model: "Damage as small as screws of the car that stay on the track, thus influencing the gameplay."

    Gamers can race on official European circuits in cars made by Aston Martin, Koenigsegg, Pagani and many more. In the cities of Detroit, Washington DC and San Francisco there are street races. Japanese cities provide the opportunity to race in neon-lighted streets.

    Race Driver: Grid is being developed for PC, PS3 and XBOX360 and is planned for the 2nd quarter of 2008.

    Thanks for the announcement Sven. I am sure C-masters will produce a good looking product again. But they wont see me in their games as long as it handles like TOCA 3.

    Any change this will be a simulator?

    well since it's based on the CMR: DiRT Engine, it will handle liek it also I guess... Neve had the time to check CMR:DiRT out so I can't judge !

    But they probably will try to implement simulation as best as possible. But knowing CM, that won't be quite succesfull tbh.

    Absolutly a big no.
    The realism is far from realistic.
    Way to mutch comparison with the movie the fast and the furious.
    The first 3 rd game`s where at theire realease date very good.
    But this ............no no no.

    All that you cans ee at the Eau Rouge part are BMWs and Chevys... Maybe the Seat's are in the back of the field... (There goes the realism :))
