As you are probably all aware, from the fact that I keep banging on about it, I love racing games. This means that news of a new racer coming to Xbox One will always excite me. Well, you can consider me excited today as we have news of Xenon Racer, the futuristic racing game from 3DClouds.it and SOEDESCO. We now know that the game will launch in early 2019.
Xenon Racer is set in the year 2030 and features cars that look like the next evolution of the LMP1 cars that you would see at the Le Mans 24 hour race. The cars are apparently powered by electric motors and xenon gas. You also seem to be racing in real-world locations with Tokyo, Dubai, and Boston being announced as venues (with another three to come). With this being a racing game, there are a multitude of multiplayer options with split-screen and online available with multiple different events on offer.
Here’s the official description of the game as well as a trailer –
Drifting through city streets
In Xenon Racer, the action takes place in seven different locations across the world, in the year 2030. Two of the racing locations have been revealed already, the bustling metropolis Tokyo and the luxurious city of Dubai. Tokyo offers racers six unique tracks and Dubai offers an additional four, all of which can be raced in reversed direction as well.
Today, another city was unmasked, taking a major leap westward to the East Coast of the USA. Here, racers can drift around in the city of Boston, Massachusetts, also known as the “City of Champions”. In Boston, players can race on three completely different tracks, in both directions.
Take Pole Position
In Xenon Racer, players can race against the AI in Fast Race and Elimination Mode, and unlock new cars, parts and maps in the single-player Championship. To practice their racing skills and to break personal records, players can hit the tracks by themselves in Time Attack, Checkpoint Attack and Free Mode. There’s also a local split-screen mode and an online multiplayer to challenge others to a race.
In the near future, the official racing federation has ordered a seasons pause from racing, to allow teams to ease into the transition to flying vehicles. To bridge this gap, top hybrid car manufacturers host a rogue championship for rookie drivers on the streets of cities worldwide. Their advanced cars drive on electricity and Xenon gas, resulting in crazy speeds. Get behind the wheel, keep your adrenaline in check and drift through the streets. Boost to absurd speeds and become the ultimate Xenon Racer!
- Race at top speeds in electric vehicles boosted by Xenon gas.
- Drift through the streets of cities like Tokyo and Dubai in 2030.
- Triumph in single-player, split-screen, and online multiplayer championships.
- Customize your car with tons of parts to create the ultimate racing vehicle.
We will certainly be looking forward to getting our hands on the game in early 2019 and will share any information about a definitive release date or new venue announcements as we receive them.
