Circuit Superstars has been available since March 5 on PC via Steam Early Access. Over on the PC digital storefront, the game boasts a “Very Positive” Steam User Review Rating, with 87 percent of 669 user reviews rating the game positively.
Along with PC users, Xbox One gamers were treated to a rare stealth release. The Nintendo Switch has a near-monopoly on stealth releases, followed by the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. It’s unusual for any Xbox platform to get a stealth release, but that’s exactly what Xbox One owners got this week — as well as Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X users via backward compatibility.Circuit Superstars, a top-down racer and indie game discreetly anticipated by many after its revelation more than two years ago, was released to both Xbox One and PC users by developer Original Fire Games and publisher Square Enix Collective.
“Circuit Superstars is a top-down racer built by racing fans, for racing fans,” reads an official blurb about the game. “The game celebrates generations of multi-disciplinary motorsport, focusing on driving that feels great-but with a high skill ceiling, that will have players spending hours honing their perfect lap. Starting out is simple but learning the nuances of each car’s handling and finding the best racing line through each corner of each track will be a challenge for a long time to come. Not only that, but with the option of fuel usage, tire degradation, and racing damage, even a good pit stop strategy could make the difference between hero and zero. Feel the rubber bite into the road as you pass the start/finish line and dive, brakes squealing, into the first corner!”
