Hello there! I’m Francesco Bruschi, CEO of improvement studio 3DClouds. We’re bringing arcade racing again with the futuristic Xenon Racer! I can’t wait so that you can get your fingers on it when it releases later this month. However first, I want to inform you the story of how my previous as a go kart driver has impressed me to create a racing sport, and the way I translated my very own experiences into options of the sport.
Racing is in my blood, my grandfather was a race driver and his ardour has been handed down from father to son. Once I was ten years previous, my father inspired me to push myself to my limits in go kart races. I fell in love with the world of racing, the pace and adrenaline, the race strains, the sound of the roaring engines and the beautiful strategy of the vehicles. I took half within the 100cc Championship, after which I participated within the LeMans Kart Race with the Beretta staff and even raced Sebastian Vettel in System Renault.
I’ve all the time cherished taking part in sim racing video games as properly. Sooner or later I used to be taking part in the sport Grand Prix 2, the place I may merely modify liveries. From that second on, I fell in love with the modding system and mainly began to recreate every bit of my racing gear inside my favourite video video games. I turned infatuated with the thought of constructing a racing sport from scratch, and some years later my dream got here true with the creation of Xenon Racer.
With Xenon Racer, the intention was to create an old style arcade racer, the place gamers can have uncomplicated enjoyable proper from the beginning. We selected a futuristic theme, which inserts the arcade vibe and allowed us to make use of our creativeness and creativity when designing tracks, vehicles and buildings. We’ve spent a number of time taking part in the basic arcade racers of the previous 20 years and we’ve built-in their finest qualities into Xenon Racer. We’ve additionally tried to take the physics of the karts I used to drive into the true vehicles within the sport, by creating quick, futuristic vehicles that run at 400 km/h and that may drift similar to a go kart.
The drifting system was the very first thing we needed to excellent, as a result of to me drifting is an enormous a part of what makes racing a lot enjoyable. We tuned the drift system till we had reached the proper chemistry, a drift that challenges gamers to refine their driving type with each race. So as to add the true sense of competitors that’s key in racing, we’ve additionally included leaderboards, basic break up display for sofa play and on-line lobbies within the sport.
It was vital to me to supply an enormous quantity of customization choices as properly, since that’s one thing I’ve all the time valued in racing video games. In Xenon Racer, you’ll be able to personalize automobiles not solely with additional liveries, but additionally with free palettes to vary the seems to be and additional components to vary the statistics. For each racing monitor, there’s a distinction as to which automobile and which settings work finest to place you in pole place.
I’m very happy with how Xenon Racer turned out, and hope that you should have the identical adrenaline rush that I skilled on the tracks as a toddler. Xenon Racer is already out there for pre-order, and launches each bodily and digitally on March 26, so pace to the shops and expertise the drifts and boosts your self. See you on the tracks!
