The Ultimate AG Racing Sandbox
Glide through futuristic courses at breakneck speeds and eliminate those who stand in your way. BallisticNG is an action packed anti-gravity racer and the ultimate AG modding sandbox, developed as a love letter to the original Wipeout trilogy.
With a laser focused and authentic recreation of the PS1 Wipeout game physics, merging the best of each entries handling into one streamlined experience, BallisticNG returns AG racing to its glory days of technical piloting mechanics that are immensely satisfying to master.
Available for Windows, Linux and MacOS.
Welcome to the AGL
It’s the year 2159. Traditonal motorsport has been pushed to the wayside as AG vehicles takes the center stage. With millitary grade weapons and a lot of capital behind the jet-fighter like ships, AG racing is the most dangerous and exciting sport the world has seen yet.
Only the most daring of pilots make it to the finish line in one piece. Do you have what it takes?
Retro With A Modern Twist
BallisticNG is stylized like a Playstation 1 game but how you remember it, instead of how it was. For a shot of nostalgia we also included options to simulate the limitations of the console, giving you all of the charm that was the vertex wobble and texture warping of early 3D.
The game uses our own custom developed lightmapper to accurately re-create how old games did lighting, while also building in modern features to really let the lighting shine.
Lovingly Handcrafted Tracks
Tropical beaches, dense cities, industrial power plants, precarious ice mountain relays, weather control stations, moon orbiting satilite arrays… it goes on.
BallisticNG boasts a wealthy amount of tracks, even before DLC and mods, in a variety of settings with a touch of sci-fi flare. Every track is hand crafted with love to make every race visually unique and memorable. Most tracks are also playable in reverse at alternative times of day!
Meaningful Ship Selection
Pick a ship that suits your playstyle with a selection of 18 ships from a variety of manufacturers, now also including a C.Y.G.O.N Tempest from GRIP Combat Racing!
Each team has their own handling feel with a focus in different racing technologies. Some focus on combat, some on agility, some on raw speed and some on being good all rounders.
It wouldn’t be anti-gravity without weapons, and BallisticNG provides you with plenty to dish out damage and eliminate those who stand in your way of 1st place.
From mines to a devistating ball of plasma, there is an assortment of deadly offensive and useful defensive pickups to aid you in combat.
With a dedicated campaign mode featuring 122 events of ever increasing difficulty, BallisticNG’s campaign will keep you busy and on your toes with a variety of challenges.
The game also supports custom campaigns through XML files with full support for mods, allowing anybody to build their own challenges and AG racing campaigns!
