The developers of GRIP: Combat Racing have dropped a new trailer today as part of a soundtrack announcement. They have just acquired eleven new tracks from the label, Hospital Records. This brings the total number of songs to 24.
Both sides of the agreement are very pleased. In a statement from Hospital Records, Megan Bean, the Head of Business Affairs & Sync, said, “We’re excited to have our producers featured on the awesome new GRIP: Combat Racing game”. GRIP’s director, Chris Mallinson, was equally complimentary. He said, “We’re super excited to have Hospital Records on board, bringing their industry-leading line-up to GRIP: Combat Racing and joining forces with the rest of our great soundtrack roster. We think players will love pumping the huge tunes we’ve got in the game”.
Here are some of the tracks. I don’t need to know who they are to enjoy them at several hundred miles an hour, but you cool kids will probably recognize a few of the names.
- Battery x Makoto “Submerge”
- Krakota x Urbandawn “Coyote”
- Inja x Pete Cannon “War Games“ (Instrumental)
- Krakota “Citadels”
- Royalston “Diorama”
- Rawtekk “Restless”
- Whiney “Sunday Grunge”
- Whiney “Talisman”
- Lynx “Clap Track”
You can check out a sample in the trailer at the top of the article. If you buy the collector’s edition of the game, you will receive the soundtrack in three different forms, perfect for multiple generations. You will receive an MP3 version, a CD, and a double vinyl version. They don’t list whether that is 180g, but you can check out the full list of items in the collector’s edition here. You will pick up some art, DLC, a USB drive, cards, and an actual paper manual among other things. That double vinyl is still the star of the collection that runs $100.99 or £76.66, and it is limited to 300.
Music is critical in games, and racing games need to blend the rhythms and melodies to keep your heart thumping as you round that curve. If you like what you hear, GRIP: Combat Racing will release on November 6th.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
