The First Official Trailer for 'GRID Autosport' Has Been Released, and It Looks Incredible in Motion

While yesterday's Apple Keynote had a relatively strong mobile gaming presence, with the exclusive reveal of Sky from thatgamecompany and some impressive ARKit experiments showing the full capabilities of this exciting new technology, I came out of the conference feeling a little disappointed. Those amongst our lively Discord community will have seen me repeatedly predict that GRID Autosport, Feral Interactive's stunning racing simulator, would make an appearance. After all, if there ever was a game to show off the ridiculous capabilities of the shiny new iPhone X, it'd be GRID Autosport. Thankfully, the developer has numbed the pain somewhat by releasing their first official trailer for their highly anticipated racing title, and I can't help but feel that GRID Autosport could the premium driving simulator that the App Store has desperately needed for so many years...

I've been eagerly following the development of GRID Autosport over the past few months, and early glimpses of Feral Interactive's mobile port of the beloved Codemasters console racer suggest that it could be the next essential racing simulator on the App Store. Alpha preview footage emerged back in June, and it was pretty stunning to see such a detail-rich game look so refined on a smartphone, even at this incredibly early stage. However, all of the gameplay focused purely on an first-person, outside-the-car perspective, and many racing game enthusiasts on our forum thread and Discord server wondered whether a cockpit view would be in the final game. In response to this feedback, Feral have released a gif on their Twitter account that shows some additional in-game footage, most notably with a new cockpit camera configuration that should appease fans wanting a realistic racing experience on iOS...




'GRID Autosport' Developer Feral Interactive Teases Game Codenamed 'Lionheart', Coming 'Quite Soon' to iOS

Feral Interactive have struck a rich vein of form lately, with the ports of the classic Rome: Total War [$9.99 (HD)] strategy series bringing some true in-depth tactical action to the iPad. Furthermore, despite some sadly necessary delays in development, the first early glimpses of the mobile iteration of GRID Autosport have looked stunning, as the British developers look to emphasise their pedigree in porting titles to the App Store. You'd think with all this going on that the developers wouldn't have time for any other projects, however a cryptic tweet on their official Twitter account somehow suggests otherwise. In a similar style to their previous teases on social media, Feral Interactive have announced that a new game codenamed 'Lionheart' is on the way to the App Store, with a vague release date of 'quite soon'...

Here's the Stunning First Footage From the Mobile Port of 'GRID Autosport'

A few weeks ago, the unfortunate news broke that Feral Interactive's port of the classic Codemasters racing title GRID Autosport had been delayed to Autumn. While this was obviously a disappointing move, the developers asserted their commitment to what will be a major 2017 App Store release, and promised that the delay would mean a more polished and better quality title when the Autumn date eventually rolls around. To satiate excited fans of the series, Feral have today released a glimpse of Alpha footage from GRID Autosport, and all I can really say is wow...

'GRID Autosport' Has Been Delayed to Autumn for iOS, With an Android Version Launching Later This Year

The App Store port of Codemaster's premium console racer GRID Autosport has been one of the most eagerly anticipated titles on our Upcoming Games forum, and rightfully so. With the promise of the 'complete experience' of the 2014 iteration of the TOCA series, the forum thread for GRID Autosport has almost reached one hundred posts in a matter of months, and has garnered over 30,000 views from eager gamers wanting to get behind the wheel in the next big-budget racing release. However, the initial Spring release date came and went, and many have been asking when the game would finally be available on iOS, let alone whether it would launch at all on the Google Play store. Today, Feral Interactive have brought some clarification to the issue of the game's release date - as many had expected, GRID Autosport has been delayed to Autumn so more work can be done on the UI and performance. However, the developers have also confirmed that the racing title will also be making its way to 'select Android devices' later this year...

Codemasters' Console Racer 'GRID Autosport' Is Driving Onto iOS Later This Year

Over the past few months, Feral Interactive have put together an impressive run of converting premium console releases to the smaller screen of the iPhone and iPad. Rome: Total War [$9.99 (HD)] brought the cult classic strategic conquering action to the App Store, and the sequel-cum-expansion Rome: Total War - Barbarian Invasion is set to launch on the iPad later this month. Despite this pedigree in the strategy genre, Feral are taking a sharp left turn with their next iOS port - today the London-based developers announced that Codemasters' GRID Autosport would be making the transition to mobile, as the complete experience from the previous PC and console release in 2014...

'ROME: Total War – Alexander' Arriving on iPad Next Thursday, July 27th

Last November Feral Interactive made a lot of fans happy when they brought their critically-acclaimed PC strategy game Rome: Total War [$9.99 (HD)] to the iPad. Strategy gamers had been asking for a mobile port for quite some time, and their iPad version delivered the goods. Of course, Rome: Total War on PC has received some meaty expansions since the original game's release in 2004, and since the original game was now on iPad the next question strategy gamers had was would those expansions follow? If you give a mouse a cookie and all that. Well, Feral delivered there too when they released Rome: Total War - Barbarian Invasion [$4.99 (HD)] as a standalone app for the iPad at the end of March. With that out of the way, you can probably guess what happened next. Yes, fans were now hoping that the second expansion, Rome: Total War - Alexander would be coming to the iPad too, and earlier this month Feral confirmed that it indeed was. Today they've gone one step further and stamped an official release date on the expansion, and it's set to arrive next Thursday, July 27th...
