Indie developer Caged Element has announced that the futuristic combat-focused arcade racer GRIP will not only be releasing on PC as expected but will also be arriving on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch platforms sometime in 2018.
As with any self-respecting announcement, the development team has shared a new trailer which can be seen below.
GRIP is inspired by the Rollcage games of the 90’s therefore you can expect to get to grips with gravity-defying physics, fast-paced gameplay and a delightfully evil arsenal of weaponry. GRIP also features destructible environments and vehicle customisation to complete an impressively sized package.
“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, said Chris Mallinson, Game Director at Caged Element. "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 is set to make its US debut this week at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, in South Hall, Booth #1023 (in the UKIE area of the show). Consumers can play the title at PAX East, Booth #20031 (Boston, USA) and EGX Rezzed (London, UK).
GRIP is currently available in Early Access on Steam, with a release planned for PC, Xbox One, Switch and PlayStation 4 later this year.
