Powered by Unreal Engine 4, GRIP: Combat Racing was a holiday hit in 2018. Since its launch, Wired Productions and Caged Element have released six free tracks, created battle lines with Red Vs Blue team modes and in May 2019, dropped the game changing update ‘AirBlades’ – which introduced anti-grav racers to the track for adrenaline pounding wheel-to-wing action, flipping the title on its head in a first for the genre!
