Get ready to defy gravity again.

A new game mode and content update was released today for GRIP: Combat Racing. The update introduces new anti-gravity racers called "AirBlades" to the game. AirBlades utilize the "Element 115 anti-grav engine" that allows them to operate more like the ships from Wipeout than the vehicles from Rollcage. Both vehicle types can still flip on any side as they choose their own path around the track.

AirBlades are available on all of the original tracks that shipped with GRIP. They also have special levels set in the far reaches of space.

This update is free to everyone and can be downloaded for Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The Nintendo Switch version will get the update "later in May." GRIP: Combat Racing is available on those platforms starting at $29.99.

Bringing a whole new vehicle class, and uniting two genres from the 90’s together for the first time, anti-grav racers called ‘AirBlades’, powered by an Element 115 anti-grav engine, fight against the aggressive wheel based mechanical monsters called Rollers, that launched with GRIP: Combat Racing, with both classes able to flip on any side, and choose their own path, not defined by the laws of gravity.

AirBlades is available on all the original race tracks that launched with GRIP: Combat Racing, plus all new levels set in out of space and is a completely free update for players. The inclusion of this latest update adds a robust new set of features sure to thrill fans and adrenaline junkies. GRIP: Combat Racing is now two games in one, giving racers the choice of how and where they drive!

"I’m pretty sure if WipeOut and Rollcage hooked up, this is the baby they’d pop out.’ said Leo Zullo, Managing Director of Wired Productions. “It’s beyond exciting to finally be able to reveal AirBlades, as we see it as a true game-changer and industry first. GRIP: Combat Racing is a fantastic game and, thanks to the mighty talented team at Caged Element with their visionary idea and commitment, gamers are now able to experience an even more truly amazing and unique experience that helps to redefine the racing genre."
