What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access is a great way for us to connect with gamers, and allow you to help turn GRIP into the type of game you really want to play.

Our team can focus purely on development, getting you the best possible version of the game, and as soon as we make changes.

With every new version, we'll be taking valuable feedback from the community, of which we will then use moving forward.

In our forum there will continue to be polls for users to vote on, regarding all aspects of the game. These polls will give great general feedback from the players, in addition to the in-depth discussion on the rest of our forums (

With your help, we look forward to creating the best possible version of GRIP there can be!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The "final" version of GRIP will be released on November 6th 2018, though with the right support GRIP will never be final, as we hope to be adding new cars, tracks and possibly pick-ups throughout the game's life cycle.

The first version out of early access would be a complete version, or in other words, our vision of the full game as it's outlined in the game design document.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Early access will not have many features at first. Our main goal early on, is perfecting GRIP's core gameplay. We want to make sure the game plays very, very well before we start adding the bulk of the content.

Once the vehicle physics, pick-ups, multiplayer functionality and AI are where we need them to be, we'll start to release new content that can change over time depending on feedback from the community.

For the full version of GRIP, we're wanting to have at least 12 cars (3 classes), 12 tracks (4 planets), 10 pick-ups, a career mode, arcade mode, arena mode (with arenas), carkour mode, elimination mode, multiplayer (online or local LAN and split-screen), mod tools for custom cars, and (depending on funding moving forward) a track editor so players can build their own courses.

This is our ideal version of the final game, but the actual end result could be different from our current vision.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“See the "About this game" section on the store page. It is updated regularly with a current feature list”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we include new content and features, but not by much. However, you will NOT have to pay any more money to receive the final release version, if you've already bought a version of the game in early access, regardless of the price at which you did.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We'd like the community to give feedback on all aspects of the game, whether it be vehicle physics, weapons, power-ups, cars, track designs or overall visuals.

You can give feedback either here in the Steam community, in our official forum, or on our Discord

We look forward to hearing from you!”

GRIP has gone gold!

Yep, GRIP is launching out of early access on PC November 6th.

And speaking of gold, don't forget that all of your early access players get a special gold-plated skin for 3 cars. These are exclusive skins - they will not be attainable anywhere else. Here's a taste:


Also a reminder that your ingame player progress bar will get wiped back to zero upon the game's release. This is to prepare for the various garage unlocks we have in store. There's so much additional content you guys haven't seen. You're gonna love it!


In case you haven't seen, we also announced our relationship with Hospital Records for the GRIP soundtrack. Hospital Records is one of, if not the biggest Drum and Bass record label on the planet, and GRIP will be full of tunes from their artists.

Have a look at the bangin' soundtrack spotlight trailer released recently:

AND we announced a Collector's Edition of the game, which you can have a closer look at below.

It includes a Double vinyl, Classic game manual, Art prints, USB stick, DLC, Decals, Numbered card of authenticity and Branded barf bag

Details here:


Not long now, everyone! Thanks for being a part of our community. We hope you'll love the upcoming content upon release, and after ;)

Be sure to jump on the GRIP Discord server to coordinate multiplayer games, drop bug reports, give feedback and discuss the game!

To all of our players, thank you for supporting us, and we hope you'll like what we've got coming when the game launches November 6th!

We'll have more news about the game including some great additions to the soundtrack, the collector's edition and more as we get closer to release

Some noteworthy issues/bugs with the game are listed below
  • You may experience a crash, but these are very rare. Do let us know if it happens!
  • The player progress bar and level is a placeholder for when we introduce more cars and items in the garage to unlock. You may see a "Item unlocked" popup, but it's a bug. We'll be fixing that one shortly
  • There are still issues with multiplayer UI, especially with custom tournaments
  • Player avatars may not show up in multiplayer lobbies
  • LAN games sometimes do not work
  • You may see textures pop in. For most people this happens very quickly, but may take longer for others

We will be increasing the price of the game later this week to work our way up to the $29.99 USD launch price on November 6th
