It is the tenth title in the TOCA series.[1] It is also the fourth GRID title in the TOCA series, as well as a reboot of the Grid series.

Gameplay[edit]

Nemesis System[edit]

One of the key mechanics is the Nemesis System where AI drivers will become aggressive towards the player if they hit them too hard or too often, as part of this there are 400 unique AI drivers, each with their own racing style.[4]

Fernando Alonso appears in this game as a "Racing Consultant", with a player facing them in the single-player campaign's final event.[5]

The game also features in-game commentary from Alex as a play-by-play, along with former 2-time World Time Attack Champion from Australia, named Kristen as an analyst during the race.

Development[edit]

GRID was announced on 21 May 2019[2] as a reboot of the GRID series. On 7 July 2019 it was announced that GRID would be delayed by several weeks from its initial release date, with the game eventually releasing on October 11th 2019.
