Powered by Unreal® Engine 4, GRIP: Combat Racing was first released in 2018. Since its launch, Developer 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!
