Our PC videos of GRID Autosport

Our PC videos of GRID Autosport

GRID: Autosport will be available in a few hours in North America but thanks to the kindness of Codemasters' Comunity Manager Ben Walke, we were able to get a review copy of the PC version of the game in advance. Unfortunately, since we had some unexpected technical problems, we couldn't write a full review, so you'll only have these beautiful 1080p/60fps videos to enjoy this time. The good news is that we worked like the devil to propose a whole lot of them in time. Just so you know, yesterday evening at 11, we still had nothing. Hopefully, you 'll forgive the careless driving from time to time as we didn't have much time to practice, especially Driftwood who was not supposed to help me with the game in the first place as he was busy with another one that's coming later today. Enjoy!

Still using PS3 but not going to get this. Looks good on PC though

Graphics are good. I'm a huge Grid fan, ever since the original one went $8 on Steam, I've been loving this series. The gameplay is really good. I can only hope for this one to live up to the expectations.

Thanks for taking the time and effort to record and upload all the these videos. Looks pretty good to me. I wonder how much better it will look with the 4k texture pack.

There's no background music while racing? or is it off?

Music is only menus and replays, in the settings can change the volume of each separately.

Alt-tab, hit play in your MP3 player ;)

No thanks, I like the soundtrack that the dev choose for the game, something like Cyberspeed, Motorhead, Forza 4, Ridge Racer Unbounded, Split Second, MotorStorm: Apocalypse etc.., it makes the game more interesting, sound effects only are boring.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (25 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (27 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (9 Hours ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (13 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (16 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I deciced to upgrade my Netflix to 4K, was curious. Gotta be honest, watched episodes of Better call Saul, House of Cards and so on, i have a very hard time seeing a difference at all. Disappointing. (16 Hours ago)
