- If your idea of "back to the future" is the year 2650, here's your (virtual) car: a DMC DeLorean 2650, part of GRIP: Combat Racing's newest update.
- GRIP: Combat Racing is free to play on Steam from October 17 through 21.
- The gravity-defying cars in this game use more than just speed to win races in single player, multiplayer, or online competitions. And it's available for all the major consoles.
What's up, gamers? GRIP: Combat Racing has added the iconic DMC DeLorean 2650 as part of a purchasable content update. But first, it's free to play on Steam until October 21. GRIP is a racing game involving cars—and we use that term loosely—with giant wheels, wings, and weapons. They can drive on the ceilings and walls of tunnels in a wild chase through tracks across a variety of planets.
The DMC DeLorean 2650 is game developer Caged Element's take on what the 1980s stainless-steel cheese wedge would look like way into the future. Apparently it's a future where race cars can flip upside down and keep racing, an idea that would never fly with the FIA. Unlike the DeLorean with the fuel-injected 130-hp V-6 that C/D tested in 1981, this model has a jet-fuel burning rear-bolted space blaster for the 2650 model year. This likely marks the biggest step in evolution for gullwing-door technology in a very long time.
GRIP was released last year for PC and all the major consoles and has kept players happy with frequent releases of free or purchasable updates and content. The game is very much in the spirit of Mario Kart—except the weapons are bigger, the detailed maps offer beautiful graphics, and now, with this update, Princess Peach can get her hands on a DMC DeLorean from the future.
The DMC DeLorean 2650 can be purchased on Steam, Xbox Games Store, PlayStation Store, Nintendo Switch, or at game retailers for $1.99. GRIP: Combat Racing is available on all major consoles for $39.99 and on PC via Steam for $29.99 after the free days are over.
