GRAVEL features 'licensed tracks including rallycross circuits'

Kevin Dooley On April 19, 2017

Earlier this year, Italian developer Milestone raised a few eyebrows by announcing a new off-road arcade racer called GRAVEL which is set to release this summer for the PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.

GRAVEL looks like a mesh up of racers such as Forza Horizon 3, Sega Rally and Milestone's own Screamer title. With the announcement, we learned that GRAVEL will feature tracks set in 18 exotic locations which play host to over 200 events in the main career mode.

Speaking with Red Bull recently, head of game design Irvin Zonca went into more detail regarding these environments (which we can expect to learn more about as we get ever closer to launch) and then confirmed some real-world circuits will appear, “we also feature real and licensed tracks including rallycross circuits, which are perfect for door handle-banging competitions”, said Zonca.

Zonca also confirmed the various style of locations we can expect to see in GRAVEL. “Regarding the tracks, we feature more than 18 different locations split into four groups: open maps, where the player races in huge and photorealistic environments, wild rushes, which are exotic locations set up for hosting racing competitions, American stadiums and real rallycross circuits.”

GRAVEL features four disciplines: Wild Rush centers on combative races in wild locations; Cross Country has checkpoint-based open maps to explore; Speed Cross is based on real tracks whilst Stadium Circuit focuses its attention on arenas and spectacular jumps.


 
Over 50 vehicles will feature which represent several decades starting from the '70s. Four classes will be included (presumably to match the four aforementioned disciplines): Cross Circuit, Cross Country, Trophy Trucks and Extreme Racing.

GRAVEL will be arriving to the PC, Xbox One an PlayStation 4 at some point this summer, expect more on the off-road title very shortly.
