The racing game will stretch itself on Google’s new platform.
Codemasters rebooted the GRID franchise earlier in the year. The racing title came back in a big and bold way to consoles and PC, but a Google Stadia version is on the horizon. While it doesn’t seem to have made the list of launch titles, it will be coming to service sometimes before the end of the year. And the developers are using the power of Stadia to give the game a near exclusive feature.
In an interview with Wccftech, Mark Green, Development Director, said that they will be using the computing aspect of Stadia to deliver a better simulation of the big world. He seems pretty excited about it, and as he was mulling over he mentioned the Stadia version of GRID would have an exclusive mode that features 40 cars.
“Development on any new hardware is always equal parts exciting and interesting. Perhaps the area with the biggest difference was the streaming, but also the ability of Stadia to talk to other Stadia so quickly transforms some ideas around multiplayer – for example developing a whole new mode for GRID Stadia which has 40 cars on track at the same time, something that just isn’t possible with other hardware.”
GRID is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with the Stadia version coming by the year’s end. For our review of the game, take a look through here.
