Publisher Wired Productions and developer Caged Element have announced the global launch of GRIP: Combat Racing on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC/Steam. The blindingly-fast arcade combat racer is the spiritual successor to the Rollcage games of the late 90s.
Wired is calling on racers around the world to ensure that the game is on shelves “the right way up” by turning boxes upside down at retail. Prizes and rewards will be available via GRIP’s social media throughout launch week. Check out the game’s Twitter and Facebook channels for full details.

Honouring the commitment to bring further tracks to the game free of charge, and in celebration of the launch, the first bonus track has already been released. Joining the 22 unique and gravity-defying tracks already announced, the new course called SAAT Coast will challenge aspiring racers to employ super-human reflexes as they traverse a perilous jungle.
Watch the GRIP: Combat Racing launch trailer below:
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.
The game can be purchased for console (SRP £34.99) and PC (SRP £24.99) – digitally on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store & Steam, or physically, upright and upside-down at select retailers. In addition to its digital release on Xbox One, GRIP: Combat Racing simultaneously joins Xbox Game Pass.
EF Games will have a full GRIP: Combat Racing review for you later this week. Check out the official Wired Productions website for more information on the game.
