Codemasters will be using an updated version of their EGO engine for racing game GRID 2. The new screenshots of the game show that this new and improved EGO will deliver some very impressive visuals.

In the screenshots, a group of cars race through a forest and along a canyon wall. The environments are too blurred to evaluate but the cars themselves look gorgeous. You can see reflections of the surrounding countryside on each car's windshield and hood. Small scratches and bumps are also visible along the chassis.

There are trade-offs for these enhanced visuals, though. For example, Codemasters was forced to remove cockpit view from the game. The cockpit cam used too much in-game memory and processing, the developer said, and would've prevented them from pushing the graphics.

GRID 2 is due on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC in 2013. Presumably these shots are from the PC version, so as to maximize their "purty-ness". You might not get this level of detail on the 360 and PS3, in other words.
