Codemasters is inviting gamers to take a "super-secret early game" for a test drive before it's even been announced.
The mystery game, which is expected to be a new racer (and judging by Codemasters' wording possibly a new GRID), will be available to test "soon" by a select group of players. You can register your interest by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details:
- Why you want to come and tell us what we're doing wrong (or right!)
- Very brief racing game experience (emphasis on the Codemasters games but feel free to list others as well)
- Your one sentence review of GRID 2
"We've said before that we're really focussed on getting your feedback about our games," said Codemasters, "well, one of the initiatives we're keen to launch is to get you guys involved at a much earlier stage. Earlier, even, than announcement..."
"We always have various projects on the go at Codemasters, small and big, and whilst we always take into account player feedback, whether through our community channels or other forums or comments stages, and we can assure you that as much of this information as possible is shared and discussed amongst our various teams. Whilst we can’t always act on everything, we do hear it and big projects, like the GRID 2 Demo Derby free DLC release and our first steps into modding support for GRID 2 have genuinely come directly from your suggestions."
It continued: "The more information you can give us the better your chance at being selected, we're looking for the most dedicated racers our there. Together, we can make some great games."
GRID 2 released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC back in May. A next-gen title is expected to release next year.
