On this page you can download the game files.
To install the game:
These zip files contain data for the game (cars and tracks, not the actual game itself). These can be used with RVGL (the executable/game).
Create a folder in your user folder (
C:\Users\Name\Re-Volt) and extract the contents of the zip into it.
After you downloaded and unpacked the game files, install this patch. This is the game itself. Just extract the contents of the zip file into the game folder you just created. After that you can start rvgl.exe.

Acclaim Entertainment is no more, so the IP rights have been sold to Throwback Entertainment who didn't do much with the game. At that time the game has been classified as abandonware. Later, they sadly sold the franchise to WeGoInteractive.
Re-Volt used to be available for purchase on GOG but it has been taken down because WeGoI used the community-made 1.2 beta patch without permission. The community and GOG themselves did not like that. So until WeGoi manages to create a patch on their own, it won't be available for purchase (that probably won't ever happen).
We offer the contents of the original CD-ROM here on the site for the sake of game preservation. This way, you don't have to download it from a shady warez website. The downloads here are unaltered versions of the game files from 1999.
If you want to support the original developers, visit some of the links listed below:
Studio Head of Gunjin Games: Nick Baynes (RV: Project Manager)
Paul Phippen (RV: Designer) (Mozchops)
Ex-CEO: Nick Baynes (BigBit ported the game to iOS)
Gari Biasillo's Soundcloud (RV: Coder)
If you worked on the game back then, please give us a link to your website so I can add it here!
The files will be available as long as there is no legal and fair way to obtain the game that does not disrespect the community.
The files are provided to pay tribute to the original game from 1999 and the Re-Volt developer team.

All you need to do is to install the game with this executable. Then you will be able to launch the game from your Start Menu.
