Italian developer Milestone is best known for their simulation racing games, but their next title will be an arcade racer. Called Gravel, it has a focus on off-road racing. Not much gameplay has been shown for the game, but Milestone recently uploaded some new footage of it in action over on their YouTube channel.
View the new Stadium at night gameplay footage below to get a better look at how Gravel will play:
This isn’t the only footage they’ve shown off, as a look at Australia during dusk was released last week. Check out that trailer below:
I recently got to go hands-on with Gravel at PAX West 2017. Here’s what I had to say about Milestone’s upcoming racing title in our Gravel preview:
One part of the game that I didn’t get to go hands-on with was its story mode. Called the Gravel Channel, the mode is presented as a web television series. Players have to work their way through the ranks and eventually challenge several “Off-Road Masters,” who look to be the douchiest drivers alive. It’s definitely a different spin on a career mode, so I’m looking forward to checking it out when Gravel releases next year.
It’s definitely cool to see Milestone trying something different within the racing genre. They’re showing a lot of unique ideas in Gravel, and I had a great time in the 30-minutes I spent with their upcoming arcade racer. It’s definitely not the in-depth simulation that fans are used to receiving from them, but it might be their most fun title yet.
Gravel is set to release in “early 2018” for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
