Gravel Unleashes Off-Road Badassery Upon the World
Famed racing game developer Milestone, has announced Gravel, its new title dedicated to the 4-wheeled off-road world. The game will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Pro, Xbox One and Windows PC next summer.
“Gravel is only racing title on the market to pack a holistic off-road experience into a single game… It celebrates off-road racing by taking players to exotic locations around the world with some of the most exciting vehicles ever created,” says Irvin Zonca, head of Milestone. “Thanks to the Unreal Engine 4, Milestone can finally unleash its creativity by tackling the arcade-genre with the most ambitious off-road racing game ever created. Bearing in mind the concepts of fun, competition, speed and adrenaline, we had the chance to think big by putting the best elements into the same game that we could create: photorealistic graphics, a dynamic time of day and weather system, accessible physics that can be enjoyed by everybody, breath-taking locations where players can race at full speed rushing through forests, snowy mountains, dunes and deserts. We love the way Gravel is shaping up and we believe that the players will be amazed by how funny and fresh this game will be.”
There are four disciplines included in the new Milestone, which the developer promises will take the player into an adrenaline-fueled combination of petrol and dirt:
- Wild Rush, combative races in wild locations
- Cross Country, with open maps to explore or to conquer until the last checkpoint
- Speed Cross, real tracks and races without holding anything back
- Stadium Circuit, with arenas and spectacular jumps
Many other on and off-line game modes will form an integral part of Gravel, and will be announced in the coming weeks.
The game will also revolve around the Gravel Channel, which presents Off-Road Masters, an annual television program that will accompany the player on their way to fame and glory. Through challenges and events that are dedicated to every one of the in-game disciplines, platyers must reach the Final League and challenge the champion from the previous edition, attempting to be crowned the new Off-Road Master. The route will not only be scattered with increasingly difficult challenges, but also with discipline specialists and real masters, who will put even the most experienced players to the test.
Gravel is the first Milestone game created with Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4. This engine ensures incredible visual quality, with realistic, impressive lighting and particle effects. Furthermore, thanks to its technical features, we can approach new game modes, including, for example, the management of open spaces and completely redesigned physics.
