GRID 2 gameplay trailer races through YouTube, gets pre-order bonuses

It’s like I can smell the burning rubber… since when did YouTube introduce Smell-O-Vision?

Bad jokes aside, Codemasters decided today was the day to their gameplay trailer for GRID 2 on their YouTube Channel to rekindle your love with the world of motorsports. Oh, will you be mine, McLaren MP4-12C?

This trailer is pretty tight, as these graphics make me think racing has never looked this good. Have to say major props for adding Chicago to the list of places to race. Great to see the Marina City Towers (or as I like to call them, the Wilco Towers) lit up while incredibly fast cars race through the heart of downtown Chicago.

GRID 2 will be available May 31st for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Those of you wanting to pre-order the game will get some extra goodies to go with it.
