GRIP: Combat Racing is very clearly inspired by the fast paced anti-gravity racers from the mid to late 90s that graced the home consoles of the time. The developers cite the 1999 game Rollcage by Attention to Detail – which I can certainly see in the car designs. Fast cars gripping to the curved surfaces of futuristic racing courses also reminds me of the “Xtreme-G” series from the long defunct ACLAIM studios. Vehicle design and anti-gravity mechanics aren’t the only 1990s inspired features: the final release will also include 22 courses and more importantly – four player split screen!
GRIP’s complete soundtrack will include 24 tracks but the following 11 tracks have been licensed for use in the game:
- Battery x Makoto “Submerge”
- Krakota x Urbandawn “Coyote”
- Inja x Pete Cannon “War Games“ (Instrumental)
- Krakota “Citadels”
- Royalston “Diorama”
- Rawtekk “Restless”
- Whiney “Sunday Grunge”
- Whiney “Talisman”
- Lynx “Clap Track”
GRIP: Combat Racing will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC on November 6th.
