GRID 2 pre-purchase bonuses open on Steam

Tuesday, 23rd April 2013 11:37 GMT By Dave Cook

GRID 2 developer Codemasters has opened Steam pre-purchase incentives for its incoming racer. If you get your order down before May 27 you can get a boot-load of bonus extras.

You can place your order now over on the GRID 2 Steam hub at a limited price of £26.99 – usually £29.99.

Early buyers may be able to get a Headstart DLC pack for free, and a raft of other rewards such as a GRID 2 McLaren Racing Pack, a free copy of the first GRID, as well as IndyCar and GTR Racing packs. I say *may* as there’s a catch, because these unlock tiers will only become available as more and more people pre-purchase the game.

So what are you waiting for? If you want the free swag you have until May 27 at 4PM Pacific Time to unlock the goodies.

What do you think of the deals above?

    I can dig Codemaster’s pricing model on the PC – 35.99€ is a bargain.
    If only they could put their games out as downloadables on consoles with similar pricing.

    I’ll be keeping an eye on this, even though I’m still bummed about the scratched cockpit view. This year should be banner for racing fans: Rumors of a new Forza and PGR, both Gran Turismo and Drive Club possibly releasing this year and third party racers like Project CARS and GRID 2 on the way… there’s a lot to be excited about.

    Not buying Grid 2. Like alot of racers today it is too damn fast, too twitchy, and you spend more time fighting the physics engine then actualy racing bumper to bumper. I would rather play a Sonic Racing game if it means having a better, tighter racing experience. And it does.

    I have spent more then a few years behind the wheel on real tracks. Most racing games are all about the “Game” and less about the racing. Hard to explain. But I only enjoy a small handful of racers today, most of them don’t take themselves too seriously, and most of what I play are older and for the PC. Like the Dirt Track Racing series from Ratbag.

    Most consoles racers cover up poor AI with faster then possible reaction times where even thinking about a thumb spasem sends you off the track(or a slight bump from said AI).

    Ima pass.

    I bought Grid, btw. Not interested in this one.

    Didn’t you just describe practically almost every other game out there? Not just racing game, most game nowadays rely on you being able to react quickly.
    What you just described is applicable to most shooters, action games, and fighters.

    So what? You only play turn-based RPGs and turn-based strategies then?
