    New Gravel Trailer.jpg
    Introducing the latest trailer release from 2018's Milestone developed Gravel Videogame.

    Announced, hyped then ignored, Gravel has had a topsy turvy start to life since coming to public attention back in March. Since then the game has been delayed to sometime in 2018 and many have been left wondering exactly what is happening with this new off road arcade racer from Milstone.

    Thankfully signs of life over at the Italian studio have begun to surface in recent weeks, with a kick started 'Developer Diary' series shedding some light onto the inner workings of what looks to be a half decent lightweight fun racer, and now to whet the appetite yet further we have ourselves a brand new trailer, which can be viewed in all of it's Unreal 4 glory below:

    Released in time for the Gamescom video game industry event, the new one minute plus trailer allows us yet another peak at the varied types of racing and landscape due to come to this Forza Horizon esq racing game.

    Using Unreal 4 as the base game engine it is in no doubt that Gravel will be a visually appealing title when it eventually releases next year, and with some pretty decent licences already alluded too by the developers (hearing Porsche are in the game amongst others), perhaps it might just be too soon to write this off as an off brand Forza Horizon type experience, and embrace the potential for Milestone to have produced a potentially rather solid arcade style off road racing game.

    Stay tuned for more information on the development progress of Gravel as and when it becomes available..

    I mean, maybe it'll be a good arcade racer? Doubt it, but would be nice if it was, if it is any good I wish for splitscreen, seams like a perfect game for that.

    Looks like Milestone are finally accepting that simulation just isn't their strong side. Could be a decent fun racer.
