Featuring exclusively in GRID 2, LiveRoutes is the ground-breaking new system that dynamically changes the course of a race track on the fly. Today Codemasters revealed the technology in action with a new video, which you can see (and probably have already seen before readin this) above. Offering millions of route possibilities, LiveRoutes comes into play for specific events in the game’s city environments – Paris, Barcelona, Chicago, Miami and Dubai. Junctions on LiveRoutes circuits can switch the track up to six different ways, as LiveRoutes randomly selects a route through the city.
“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. “In a LiveRoutes event, you don’t know what’s coming next and it turns each race into a test of your racecraft, car handling and reactions on circuits that cannot be learnt. In both career mode and online, LiveRoutes offers near limitless possibilities in every race and it’s a great leveller, even for the most experienced racing game players.”
