Rollcage Spiritual Successor “GRIP” Now Available for PC, Consoles

GRIP: Combat Racing, a spiritual successor to 1999’s Rollcage by Caged Element and Wired Productions, is now available on PC and consoles.

The fast and arcade-y racing game is now available on Windows PC (via Steam and the Humble Store), PS4, Switch, and Xbox One for $29.99. It should be noted that the Xbox One version is also currently part of Xbox Game Pass.

The high speed, gravity-defying combat racer turned to Early Access back in 2016 after a failed Kickstarter campaign. The game’s heavily armed and armored cars can reach speeds of nearly 800 mph, and can scale walls and ceilings as players race through absurd, futuristic tracks. You can check out the launch trailer above.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

Harnessing gravity defying physics alongside a bristling arsenal of outlandish weapons, GRIP delivers the fastest, most competitive racing experience ever.
