Fans of the upcoming Circuit Superstars, a new update has been released add new features and content.
The Early Access top-down arcade racer is now up to Version 0.4.0. The latest updates bring the game closer to a full release, but for now, there a ton of new features to check out, detailed on the game’s Discord server earlier on Tuesday.
The newest car in the lineup is a Prototype vehicle nicknamed the Conquest. As Tom pointed out to me, the fantasy vehicle resembles an Audi R8 Le Mans Prototype, this specific one a five-time winner of the famed 24 hour race at Le Mans. It just so happens that the historic 24 hour event takes place this weekend… could it be a convenient coincidence?
Three of the 12 Grand Prix tournaments that will be available at launch are included in this update. Online events will now rotate randomly, cars have been tuned, and the replay system has a range of camera options to play with now.
There are a ton of other features in the update. We’ve cleaned up the developer’s post and included it below. Let us know what you think about the latest edition of the highly anticipated racing game.
