XGRA: Extreme G Racing Association is a futuristic racing video game, and the fourth in the Extreme-G series, following Extreme-G 3. This game features more tracks as well as a brand new weapon system.

Overview[edit]

Screenshot of gameplay.

Gameplay is similar to previous games in the series. XGRA features a wide range of riders, tracks and bikes that can accelerate at an incredibly rapid rate, going from 0 to 300 mph in a matter of seconds. A returning feature is the ability to break the sound barrier: upon reaching 750 mph, all sound effects cut out except the item collection sound, other drivers' taunts, the sounds of your own weapons firing, and the in-game music.

XGRA allows players to race for eight different teams, with each team's bike having their own advantages and drawbacks such as speed, handling etc.

"Far Away" by Noise Therapy and "Madskills" by BT was featured in the soundtrack.
