Wired Productions and developer Caged Element have announced the all-formats release of GRIP, a fast-paced combat racer for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch due out later this year.
Inspired by the likes of Rollcage and other classic car combat titles, GRIP is currently available on Steam Early Access where it got a lot of attention, now the full release will receive an enhanced version sometime in 2018.
As you can see in the trailer below, GRIP is a fast, competitive, action-orientated shooter/racer, which currently has a "Very Positive" rating on Steam - and that's not the final version. It's got customizable vehicles, is available to play online or offline, and even has destructible environments. Chris Mallinson, Game Director at developer Caged Element, had this to say:
"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."
Leo Zullo, Managing Director at Wired Productions, adds:
As long-standing fans of Rollcage and the combat racing genre, we’re delighted to sign GRIP and to build our partnership with the incredible team at Caged Element. Born from passion and nostalgia, driven by great minds and taking full advantage of the latest capabilities in both engine and hardware, GRIP is a racer with limitless horsepower and the title to keep your eye on this year."
You can get a taste of GRIP now on Steam Early Access, and the greatly improved final version will release later this year.
