Ok, so California was previously governed by an Austrian man who acted as the world's most terrifying robot assassin, but it's a serious place: if independent from the USA, it would rank among the world's foremost economies.

And it's got some serious roads too; proper twisty, challenging, sun-kissed prime coastal highway begging for a decent car and a good driver. Step forward Grid 2, the upcoming game from Codemasters that can provide the ‘good car' and ‘good roads' bit. The rest is up to you.

The game's developers have revealed a new video showing proper gameplay footage: not some overly-rendered trailer, but work-in-progress stuff you'll actually be able to replicate. The gameplay takes place along the California coast, where a new Boss Mustang - a car we actually admire - takes on a classic Mustang Mach 1.

The game's slated for a summer 2013 release, and promises a new ‘TrueFeel' handling system that uses actual physics. This is frightening, but if the result is anything as good as Grid 1 - which won a BAFTA - good times are ahead. You'll race across three continents using cars spanning four decades, so there'll be at least one car you can guarantee to like, and will be released on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.

Have a gander at the video below and let us know if you're interested...
