Gravel

A car game where the players drive various off-road vehicles and take part in Offroad Masters competition, visiting various places around the globe – from deep forests and jungles, through deserts and beaches, to snow-covered mountains. Gravel offers four ways to play: Cross Country is based on free exploration and competition to reach check points before others; Wild Rush features races without any rules; Speed Cross is a competition taking place on reconstructions of real-life tracks; and finally Stadium Circuit, taking place on closed arenas filled with obstacles and ramps to jump. The game can be played both solo and with other players, and they can brag about their achievements through online rankings. Gravel is based on Unreal Engine 4 technology, meaning it offers high-quality visuals. Its driving model is a compromise between simulation and arcade, with a physics engine developed by Milestone making sure that the game is quite realistic and each car acts differently.
