Winter Update for Circuit Superstars Brings New Content and Game Modes

Circuit Superstars' Winter Update is now live on Steam, and the update includes interesting new content and in-game features.

Our favourite Indie racing game of 2021, Circuit Superstars, has been given a major update including new content and game modes.

Thanks to the latest update, players can now enjoy utilize drafting in game. This opens up greater possibilities for oval racing, of course. To take advantage of this new feature, Circuit Superstars now offers NASCAR Cup Series inspired race car, the Impact stock car. This car is a perfect fit for the new Bullseye Speedway as well.

Another key feature of the winter update is the addition of a practice mode. Players can now learn the fastest or most consistent lines through the race circuits on their own terms.

For online racing, Original Fire has made some nice improvements that should enhance your experience in multiplayer sessions. The changes will affect the car behaviour when racing closely with others or bumping into them. The online sessions should behave better when internet service is less than optimal as well.

Circuit Superstars is a great way to burn off holiday stress, and offers more smiles per miles than just about any other recent racing title. These updates make a good thing even better. Be sure to let us know your thoughts on this update or anything else Circuit Superstars related in the comments below.

Would love to see this released for the Nintendo Switch...seems like the perfect game for that platform to get a good racing fix on the go. I say that because I'm currently traveling for a few weeks and, knowing there'd be lots of downtime, I recently picked up a Switch and noticed the lack of good racing games aside from Mario Kart 8 (which is amazing in its own right of course). Would be good to have more options!
 
Very cool update! This game is so much more fun than I expected. I really hope they add a replay function combined with photo mode similar to Art of Rally at some point in the future - that would make it perfect for me.
 
Just picked this up. Used to love Gene Rally back in the day. This is great fun I have to say. Really scratches that top down racer itch. I'm playing with keyboard (Just like I did with Gene Rally) and thoroughly enjoying it. May plug in a gamepad at some point, but for a quick blast, keyboard works fine.

A Nintendo Switch release is coming in Q2 2022. I can’t wait to play it honestly!
Also if you’re looking for a good racing Switch game, search for Fast RMX - it’s on sale now and I’m having a blast

Good to know, thanks!

I’m surprised I’m loving the switch as much as I am, especially since I planned to wait til the SteamDeck came out…spur of the moment decision but it’s a great portable/console…and I said I was completely done with consoles!

I really wish it had a third person view. Every time I try to get other people into it they just keep driving into walls because of the top-down perspective.
