Extreme racing arcade, which allows you to try out the most amazing tracks in the wild corners of the planet. In the game, four disciplines cross-country and off-road transport, suitable for any race conditions.
Gravel is a tour of a wide range of extreme racing tracks, where the most powerful cars compete in speed and dust the carbon brake discs. The score here is excitement, fun and pure adrenaline: no "realistic" control schemes, nitro and correct trajectories - only your reaction and the strength of the suspension will determine the winner.
Unlike other rally simulators, where races are held on paved trails, and the fight goes for seconds, Gravel offers a treacherous and unpredictable landscape, as well as the ability to perform various tricks, not particularly worried about the safety of transport. Terms of victory here are also somewhat different - compete game and win, and you will be challenged by four Maestros - the best off-road racers who will not be easy to defeat.
The technical side of the game is based on the Unreal Engine 4 toolkit, which draws a very bright and beautiful picture of impassability and various corners of the planet: mountain peaks, tropical islands, modern cities, mamumba, deserts and juicy mud of spring Japan. The models of cars boast of excellent body painting and the elaboration of the salons, which makes driving pleasant to the eye. The physics of game control here is simplified and ideal for an undemanding driver.
Competitive experience can be obtained in races for 12 players, for example, in races with checkpoints or free research without borders. Particularly worth noting the battle in the arena - here players compete in agility and show various tricks, along the way trying to knock the enemy off the track. There are a number of real tracks in the game, on which the traditional rules of races operate.
Gravel has earned an excellent press and feedback from the players - beautiful graphics, unpredictable landscapes, iconic cars and a cheerful soundtrack. Spoils the picture of the complete lack of localization and some problems with optimization.
