Publisher Wired Productions and developer Caged Element announced today that GRIP – the ferociously fast, futuristic combat racer – is set to arrive on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam in 2018. You can check the breathtaking, adrenaline fuelled announcement trailer below.
Fully enhanced for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, GRIP was inspired by the Rollcage games of the late 90’s and backed by a highly-skilled and accomplished team. Harnessing the power of Unreal Engine 4 to deliver gravity defying physics alongside a bristling arsenal of outlandish weapons, GRIP delivers the fastest, most competitive racing experience ever. Featuring a killer soundtrack, furious speeds and intense action, GRIP is guaranteed to generate unforgettable gaming moments - online or offline - with nail-biting split screen racing and tournaments.
Evolved from the age of street racing, the world of GRIP is brutal and cut-throat to the core. Scale walls, ceilings and anything else you can get your tyres on to... as you master tantalising tracks, tricks and perform mind-blowing stunts to race your way across the cosmos. You can customise your vehicle, utilise devastating weapons and exploit a destructible environment to ensure not only victory, but the complete annihilation of your opponents.
We’re very excited to finally announce our partnership with Wired Productions today. GRIP began as a passion project paying tribute to the great Rollcage games and racers of a past era, but it’s now truly transformed into a fully-fledged, futuristic combat racer fit for this generation. We’re extremely proud of the game and can’t wait to unleash it later this year on all platforms. Combat racing is back, baby.
GRIP will make its US debut this week at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, and will be available for consumers to get hands on for the first time at PAX East, Booth #20031 (Boston, USA) and EGX Rezzed (London, UK). GRIP is currently available in early access on Steam.
