'Gravel' (ALL) Season Pass And Post-Launch DLC Details

by Rainier on Feb. 9, 2018 @ 2:10 a.m. PST

Gravel is an off-road challenge where you explore exotic locations, drive iconic vehicles in extreme conditions, defy the champions, and become the ultimate Offroad Master.

Gravel will offer an experience unique to its kind: Milestone’s pedigree in simulation is valued here with physics grounded in reality, but fun will be the main focus, among wild drifting on the different terrains, crazy jumps and impossible maneuvers.

Celebrate off-road racing by taking you to exotic locations around the world with some of the most exciting vehicles ever created. The variety of powerful vehicles, from trophy trucks to rally legends, will offer many different approaches to the driving experience, and the wide offer of environments will have you strapped in for an unforgettable world tour.

Unleashing the full power of Unreal Engine 4, Gravel bestows each location with an unprecedented level of detail and makes the competition fun for everyone: photo realistic graphics, dynamic time of day and weather system, accessible physics that can be enjoyed by everybody, breath-taking locations where the player can race at full speed rushing through forests, snowy mountains, dunes, deserts, impressive lighting and particle effects.

Furthermore, thanks to its technical features, Gravel will offer wide open maps and believable physics, although the driving experience will be oriented towards a pure fun approach.

Among deserts, jungles and snowy mountains you will have to shine in each and every discipline, whether it’s the wide open maps of the Cross Country or the narrow tracks of the Speed Cross. Become the ultimate Master or take part in some wild competition in the online game modes: Gravel will always have some fun ready for you!

Milestone announces Gravel Season Pass content which includes 5 premium DLCs, to be released from February until June and gives you a taste of the whole DLC plan.

Season Pass

For those ready to go beyond their limits, Gravel Season Pass will include 5 DLCs, which will give access to additional 12 new vehicles, 10 check point tracks, 4 new Wild Rush circuits and 2 new Off-Road Career Events with the aim of satisfying even the most demanding off-road racing fans.

Gravel Season Pass and Gravel Special Edition, including the Full Game and Season Pass, will be available to pre-order from 27 February 2018 on PS4, Xbox One.

In addition to the DLCs included in the season pass, new content will be available completely free, letting players broaden their car portfolio with new exclusive vehicles. The first two freemium DLCs are Gravel Free car Bowler Bulldog and Gravel Free car Acciona.

Gravel Free car Bowler Bulldog

For all four-wheel enthusiasts, this DLC gives access to the first exclusive free vehicle, available for download from 7 March.

Straight from Great Britain, here's one of Bowler latest creations, the Bulldog, a concentration of power which makes the off-road experience even more thrilling and engaging. The perfect vehicle to prove your true worth!

Gravel Free Car - Acciona

If you think that an electric engine is a limitation, this stunningly powerful vehicle will make you change your mind very quickly.

Acciona, the first and only electric vehicle to compete and finish the toughest official off-road races in the world, shows off with all its "energy" in the Gravel fleet. Acciona will be available to download starting from 21 March.

Details on all other DLCs will be disclosed later on.

Gravel's career mode is developed around the Off-Road Masters, the annual TV show where the best riders in the world compete in races all over the planet, organized by the Gravel Channel, the extreme sports TV channel completely dedicated to off-roading.

The show’s season includes episodes which are made up of one or more races. Each competition is part of a specific discipline: the players will fight against the champion of that discipline, the so-called Off-Road Master, while they proceed in the career. Four champions for four disciplines, Cross Country, Wild Rush, Speed Cross and Stadium Circuit, and each champion mirrors the spirit of their discipline. Players will have to fight to defeat the Off-Road Masters and win their titles. Once the championship is over, players can take part in a definitive challenge to beat the reigning Off-Road Master of all disciplines in the Final League.

There are four disciplines included in the new Milestone IP which promise to take the player into an adrenaline-fueled combination of petrol and dirt:

  • Wild Rush, combative races in wild locations
  • Cross Country, with open maps to explore or to conquer until the last checkpoint
  • Speed Cross, real tracks and races without holding anything back
  • Stadium Circuit, with arenas and spectacular jumps

Become the Master in four exciting disciplines and be part of the greatest off-road competition ever seen, Offroad Masters: will you be able to #StealTheShow?

Many other on and off-line game modes will form an integral part of Gravel and will be announced in the coming weeks.

The game will revolve around the Gravel Channel, which presents the Offroad Masters format, an annual television program that will accompany the player on their way to fame and glory. Through challenges and events that are dedicated to every one of the in-game disciplines, the skilled driver must reach the Final League and challenge the champion from the previous edition, attempting to be crowned as the new Offroad Master. The route will be strewn with increasingly difficult challenges, but also with discipline specialists, real Masters, who will put even the most experienced players to the test.

Gravel will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC, starting February 27th 2018.
