March 2nd, in the year of our Lord 2017,
Milan – Milestone, one of the leading and longest established
racing game developer in the world, is proud to announce its new
IP dedicated to the 4-wheeled off-road world: GRAVEL. The game
will be available on PS4™ Pro, PS4™, Xbox One® and STEAM™ next
“Gravel is the most extreme off-road challenge. It celebrates off-road racing by taking the player to exotic locations around the world with some of the most exciting vehicles ever created. Thanks to the Unreal Engine 4, Milestone could 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 into the same game the best elements that we could create: photorealistic graphics, dynamic time of day and weather system, accessible physics that can be enjoyed by everybody, breath-taking locations where the player 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, which promises to take the player into an adrenaline-fuelled 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. Offline modes will be in this game as well.
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 which 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.
