'Circuit Superstars' Free To Play On Steam This Weekend

by Rainier on May 25, 2022 @ 1:28 p.m. PDT

Circuit Superstars combines arcade-style racing with a more realistic driving model that enables new players to jump in and race, but sets a high skill ceiling for serious players looking to set the fastest laps possible.

Circuit Superstars will feature a range of on- and off-road racing categories – from rally, GT, classic cars and even trucks – all in a unique and gorgeous visual style.

Circuit Superstars celebrates generations of multi-disciplinary motorsport, focusing on driving that FEELS great – but with a high skill ceiling that will have you spending hours honing your perfect lap, ready to take on the world!

Starting out is simple – as a top-down racing game should be - 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.

As ardent fans of classic top-down racers our goal is to take that core concept, add more depth through tactile vehicle traction – and modernise the whole experience with features like online multiplayer and leaderboards, ghosts, replays, plus regular content drops such as new cars and tracks post-release.

Square Enix and Original Fire Games announced that Circuit Superstars will be doing a Free Weekend during the Steam Racing Fest.

The festival is running from May 23 to 30, and the Circuit Superstars Free Weekend will run from Friday, May 27 to Sunday, May 29, offering an additional 25% discounted during the festival.

The Free Weekend will give players access to all features and content of Circuit Superstars, from the community-beloved Weekly Time Trials to Custom Online Lobbies and Single Player Tournaments.

Enjoy the free pass to Circuit Superstars’ charming world of motorsport from May 27 to 29 on Steam.
