Grid 2 trailer boasts millions of dynamically altered race tracks

A new trailer from Codemasters shows off Grid 2's LiveRoutes technology, which aims to ensure that some races are never run on the same track twice.

As previously reported by Polygon, LiveRoutes dynamically streams in entirely different parts of the track ahead of the player, changing the turns and everything off the road, like crowds and signage. Not every track supports LiveRoutes, but those that do seek to test a racer's reaction time rather than his or her ability to memorize a path.

Grid 2 hits Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC on May 28.
