Which sports will we be playing tomorrow? The day after? What about in 200 years? It’s hard to predict, but fortunately for us, video game designers have been busy inventing the new sports of tomorrow… and reinventing the sports of today! Here, Blacknut has put together a selection of the five most futuristic sports out there!
The motorsports of the future will be a little bit different from the ones we have today. Amazing technological advances will mean that the biggest speed freaks out there will have the kit they need to ignore the rules of gravity, thermodynamics, and fair play all at once. This game lets you race along the ceiling at 250mph as you scream past your competitors: welcome to GRIP Combat Racing! In this fast-paced 3D racing game, you’ll be at the wheel of a powerful futuristic ride kitted out with huge off-road tyres and a souped-up engine. Your racing battles will take place on post-apocalyptic tracks through ruined factories and industrial wastelands, which gives you a good idea of how serious the race organisers take their sport. The race drivers of today can just be thankful that arena deathmatches and brutal carkour challenges have not made it onto the racing circuit just yet!

Forget about scaling buildings, jumping from rooftops, and urban freerunning! A few centuries into the future, parkour will be an established Olympic esport, under the new name of Cyber Hook. So, what has taken the place of buildings and outraged neighbours? An ‘80s style digital matrix made out of pixels, bright neon, and just as colourful characters! What’s more, this happy little band of daredevils now get to use a special kind of grapple. It’s a nifty little tool that lets you keep moving forwards at breakneck speed, grabbing onto any wall within reach to pick up even more speed! This is a fast-paced dynamic futuristic 3D parkour game where you’ll need to find the best lines to make it to the finish line in record time, and in just one attempt… if you can. Because just like in any self-respecting Die n’ Retry game, death will bring you right back down to earth after the slightest slip!
