    Milestone have surely been busy in recent weeks, this time showing off a new developer diary from the surprise announcement of 2017, the new arcade racing game - Gravel.

    Based on a Baja style off road racing scene where the player can drive a number of iconic road and racing vehicles from throughout the decades, all in Unreal Engine 4 and across some vast and varied landscapes, Gravel is very much the Milestone answer to the popular SEGA Rally franchise of the 1990's, and a very distinct attempt at breaking into the arcade racing game marketplace.


    If you missed it earlier, check out the first dev diary release HERE.
    Gravel will release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC February 2018.

    I thought this was the Spinal Tap of Racing games until you said they were serious. Love the human caricatures. :thumbsup:

    Great looking game, I love how off-road arcade racing games are making a comeback. That being said the Milestone label still makes me hesitant about being excited over this.

    I know this is probably OT but did anyone hear about the new not-MotorStorm game by ex-Evo Studios devs?

    Love the off road genre and I think we really need one. Good one preferably.
    Jumps are a tad over the top (and over the rainbow I would say) and omg... that blinding sun. :roflmao:
    I always love that, I remember loving the effect in GTR and DL some mod for it but this.... really Milestone guys, is it too late now to take it down, a notch ? :D

    I hope they allow support for multiple usb inputs. I have a TH8 shifter, joystick used for a hand brake, CSW V1.5, CSR Elite pedal base. That is 4 usb inputs. Only milestone games, and one other game do not support multiple usb inputs. Even simcade titles support my set up. So for the love of god please fix this one part in the game and I will be happy.

    Looking at WRC 4 5 6, sab loab rally evo. Not sure all these are milestone's but these are the only games in my library that dont support multiple usb inputs.

    I might get this one... at 90% discount six months later the release when Milestone has just ditched it with no more patches and a plethora of bugs.
