Grip Gets New Tracks and Mode in Free Update

The team behind fast paced racer Grip, Caged Element, have announced a free update to the game this week. As well as four new tracks, there will also be the addition of a new Team Mode.

Chris Mallinson, Grip Game Director said in a statement:

“One of the areas we’ve seen players have a lot of fun in is the arenas. Here it’s full on PvP action with modes like Deathmatch! A few months back, players told us they wanted team modes for the arenas and for classic races… they also told us they wanted a bunch of all new tracks. We heard you and set about bringing in some classic Red vs Blue action, along with creating some of our most outrageous track designs to date! Launching today, as a free update for all players, we’re thrilled to bring the team modes into Grip, alongside four new tracks!”

Team Modes

Team Racing & Team Deathmatch

Players can now join either red or blue teams to battle it out in any racing mode.  This includes Classic Race, Ultimate, Elimination, Deathmatch and Speed Demon! The team with the highest points wins!

New Tracks

Mindbender (Haze reverse) (Orbital Prime) (City)

A highly modified version of Haze reverse. Key sections include a massive jump, tricky S turn and twisting sewer section!

Grip: Combat Racing

Naptha Valley (Jahtra) (Desert)

Quite possibly the most rollercoaster-y track of all.  Set in a resource mining center, key sections include a mineral deposit cave, large stepped curves of terrain and an indoor facility.

Grip: Combat Racing

Hive Horizon (Orbital Prime) (City)

A beautiful, sunset soaked, gravity defying city district.  Key sections include an affluent block of corporate structures, a big ceiling ride to floor jump and an ascending spiral road!

Spin Cycle (Liddo5) (Forest)

Players wanted more tunnels, and this track was designed to let ‘em dig deep! Key sections include an open area with beautiful autumn visuals, tunnel turns perfect for barrel rolls, glass tunnels and an obstacle ridden turn to the finish!

Grip: Combat Racing

We’ve also released new ‘glowing’ garage packs and based on your feedback, raised the level cap! We’re really excited for players to get a grip (pun intended!) of the new content, and although we’re not revealing exactly what is next in the pipeline, know that we have something big on the horizon for the next content drop…”

Grip is available from the Xbox Store and also available to all Game Pass subscribers.  Check out our review of the game HERE.
