    Gravel Pre Order.jpg
    With new Milestone racer Gravel due to release this February, the Italian developers have revealed two "new" Porsche models pre order specials...


    Featuring official licences for some iconic rally cars past and present, various different and unique gameplay options, UE4 graphics and what appears to be a fast and action packed gameplay experience, Gravel looks to be shaping up nicely ahead of its release to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC debut this February 27th.

    To get players in the mood Milestone have confirmed some nice pre order bonus content will be coming to the title, namely the Porsche Rallye Pack DLC, adding the iconic 1981 924 GTS Rallye and the 1986 variant of the 959. Something a bit different and rarely seen in modern racing games.

    To whet the appetite, check out the pre-order release trailer below:


    Gravel is available to pre-order now.

    For more in game footage of the upcoming new Milestone title, check out this footage of the Wild Rush mode in a snowy Montebianco. Fans of 90's era WRC may well be familiar with this little beauty on stage in the below video...


    Gravel will release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC February the 27th, 2018.

    We know this is a kids game with no simulation value, right ?
    Why is it even featured on Racedepartment ?

    After 3 hours trying all sorts of ways to get multiple copies of Sebastian Loeb Rally Evo to work with more than 1 input device I decided that the only way Milestone get me to try anything from them again is if they reimburse me for my 3 hours. No thanks. That game cost me 6 bucks on Steam sale and I refunded it. Not for the money but out of disgust at the time wasted and frustration incurred. I refuse to have that title on my hard drive.

    Although I have not had /played any games from Milestone and will not pre-order as my post above....I would however, have no problem pre-ordering Reiza Studios next Sim, even if they had another crowdfunding scheme, but this time I would get a higher tier amount and give them more money. :D

    Gotta love seeing PCars 2 hate, especially on something not even relating to it.

    I certainly wont be buying it. It looks like a console game, esp. with external view. Don't know if it has cockpit view but, err, a big no.

    It seems like people forgot what is the real fun in racing-related arcade games. Driving like on rails, on any surface and having occasional boom boom with walls/other cars, where is the fun in all that? Looking at gameplay with those rally cars, it looks like it could be any of modern smartphone games, just with better graphics. I see why most of casual people think racing games are boring.

    I mean with all those modern resources, with all this open world that they create for this title. Just bring 1nsane-alike physics and driving model (might be not that advanced as BeamNG, that is over the top), and 1nsane game modes. Like capture the flag, king of the hill, conquer the most amount of the gates first. That is where fun was. Even nowadays I would rather play that title with prehistoric graphics and stuttering on modern pc's, just because the fun factor is waaaaaaaaaay higher. Isn't that what "game" is supposed to be?

    Sometimes I like to be filthy casual, and games like this have a place.

    Although, after my Aliens Colonial Marines experience, I'll never pre order anything again!

    But certainly one to add to the watch list!
