GRID 2 is here, and everyone is racing and slamming cars like there's no tomorrow. While that's amazing and all, there's always the desire for just that extra edge, something that puts the experience on another level and also improves those times.
Today, we have a small teaser into our exploration of heavier hardware with the game. We're taking the G27 through the WSR circuit on GRID 2 this summer and showing how with the right investments you can make a significant impact in no time at all.
As you can notice in the cuts, each input has their own twist, the keyboard being a very blunt / throwing gesture; it's not very graceful, and the lack of throttle and braking control into corners causes some issues. The game pad corrects the power control but still lacks in being able to sense the turns properly or maintain them. The G27 ignores those. The tension in the wheel allow players to feel the grip or potential slip early on and greater tire control and times turn around because of that ability to go a bit further to the edge.
We'll have longer installments coming in the future, in the meantime enjoy this teaser during E3 week.
Special thanks to our video editor Victor Campos for his work capturing and editing the footage together for us, while everyone else is prepping for the show.
