We are delighted to share that GRIP: Combat Racing, the ferociously fast, futuristic arcade combat racer, – will speed onto the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC (via Steam) on November 6, 2018!
Developing GRIP: Combat Racing has been no easy feat. Starting from scratch and with a team, unconventionally, working as a satellite studio has made an interesting development cycle. From principal programmer Rob Baker battling power cuts in his very remote home (with only 4g connection!) to the team relying on skype and then discord to communicate and share updates, made it hard work to bring the team together, and even harder to keep development running smoothly. But after watching the release date trailer we think you'll agree... they nailed it!

GRIP: Combat Racing will see racers hurtling their way around 22 breath-taking tracks across a variety of hostile and foreign worlds, driving one of 15 armoured cars - some swift and agile, while others are brutish and heavily armoured. Players must be merciless; deploying a bristling arsenal of 9 outlandish weapons and power-ups to give them the advantage to take the lead against other fierce competitors. These weapons will allow players to not only target other cars, but also the destructible environments surrounding them.
Inspired by the Rollcage games of the late 90s and backed by a highly-skilled and accomplished team, which includes Rollcage programming veteran, Robert Baker, GRIP: Combat Racing celebrates the re-emergence of blindingly fast arcade combat racers, offering a true, wheel-gripping racing experience - where utter destruction serves one true purpose: be the first to cross the finish line.
Taking full advantage of the current generation of gaming hardware – and benefiting from the potential that comes with building on Unreal® Engine 4, the game accelerates ahead of the racing crowd by offering players gravity-defying physics reaching speeds of over 767 mph - making it the fastest racing game on four wheels. Along with the breakneck speeds and intense action, players will generate countless unforgettable gaming moments – online or offline – with split- screen races and tournaments. Born of the age of street racing, and losing none of its cut-throat nature, it’s not enough to just cross the line in GRIP: Combat Racing; more important is how you got there and how much destruction you have unleashed upon your rivals along the way.
Those wanting to grip the wheel now can play GRIP: Combat Racing via early access on Steam.
