Milestone announces its new IP dedicated to the 4-wheeled off-road world: Gravel. The game will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, the 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. 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”, says Irvin Zonca, Head of Game Design Milestone.
There are four disciplines included in the new Milestone IP:
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 be announced in the coming weeks.
THE TV SHOW:
The game will revolve around the GRAVEL CHANNEL, which presents the OFFROAD MASTERS format, 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, the skilled driver must reach the FINAL LEAGUE and challenge the champion from the previous edition, attempting to be crowned as the new OFFROAD MASTER. The route will be strewn with increasingly difficult challenges, but also with discipline specialists, real MASTERS, who will put even the most experienced players to the test.
Gravel will be available summer 2018.
