Watford, United Kingdom and Toronto, Canada, March 20, 2018 – Wired Productions Ltd., a leading independent video games publisher, and ground-breaking developer Caged Element Inc. are thrilled to announce that GRIP – the ferociously fast, futuristic combat racer – is set to arrive on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft, Nintendo Switch™ and Windows PC via Steam in 2018.

Fully enhanced for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, GRIP was inspired by the Rollcage games of the late 90’s and backed by a highly-skilled and accomplished team. Harnessing the power of Unreal® Engine 4 to deliver gravity defying physics alongside a bristling arsenal of outlandish weapons, GRIP delivers the fastest, most competitive racing experience ever. Featuring a killer soundtrack, furious speeds and intense action, GRIP is guaranteed to generate unforgettable gaming moments – online or offline – with nail-biting split screen racing and tournaments.

Evolved from the age of street racing, the world of GRIP is brutal and cut-throat to the core. To win the race is never enough, greatness comes from the journey and the trail of merciless destruction you unleash upon your rivals along the way.

Scale walls, ceilings and anything else you can get your tires on to… as you master tantalizing tracks, tricks and perform mind-blowing stunts to race your way across the cosmos. Customize your vehicle, utilize devastating weapons and exploit a destructible environment to ensure not only victory, but the complete annihilation of your opponents.

GRIP will 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) and will be available for consumers to get hands on for the first time at PAX East, Booth #20031 (Boston, USA) and EGX Rezzed (London, UK).

GRIP is currently available in early access on Steam, with a fully tuned release planned for PlayStation 4, Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch and PC later this year.
