When playing a strategy or role-playing game, random map generation is basically a given. Making the map dynamic helps mitigate the monotony of playing the same map over and over again, and since in racing games you’re typically driving the same tracks over and over again, it makes sense to randomize the course.
In Grid 2, a new challenge event called LiveRoutes will change the course of the track each time you race it, so you can’t count on having the track memorized to get ahead.
“LiveRoutes is the new challenge event that we’re most proud of in GRID 2. It’s as fresh to racing games as Flashback was when we introduced it as a mechanic in the original GRID,” said Clive Moody, Senior Executive Producer for GRID 2 at Codemasters.
Grid 2 may have randomly generated tracks, but its release is a set course – the game comes to PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 on May 28th.
