New Star GP is a fast and exciting arcade motorsport game with stunning retro visuals.

Play Career Mode starting in the 80’s and work your way through decades of racing while upgrading your car and your support team, or chase high scores in Championship Mode on your own or in split-screen with up to three friends.

New Star GP is the arcade racing game where every decision counts - on and off the track! You take control of your own motorsport team, guide your team’s technological development, plan your race strategy, take the wheel, and drive to victory! With a simple but deep gameplay experience and appealing retro visuals, New Star GP puts you in the driving seat for every twist and turn as you manage and race your team through decades of racing, from the 1980s all the way to the present day!

Beautifully rendered retro looks and a driving retro soundtrack that bring back fond memories of the iconic racing games of the 1990s.

A pick-up-and-play arcade driving experience that has more depth than you think. While anyone can take the wheel and have success, those who want to truly master the game will want to make use of tyre choice and wear, component reliability, slipstreaming opponents, fuel load, and even pit strategy. Anything can happen in races, from catastrophic component failures and dynamic weather changes, to tyre blowouts and multi-car pileups.

New Star GP is available on Steam Early Access for just $17.99 / £14.99 / €17.49, and will remain so for about two and four months.

The initial Early Access version has races set in both the 80’s and the 90’s, containing 56 individual race events taking place in iconic racing venues like Brisbane, Quebec and Côte D’Azur. As early access moves toward a full release, there are plans to evolve the Career Mode to include future decades of racing along with new cars, locations, tracks and rivals. 

The Championship Mode has a selection of different championships to play in either single player or with up to three other players, with plans to add more content while in Early Access. 

Early Access players will also get an exclusive, FREE body-shell. The Lucas 05 body-shell is a cool cosmetic exclusive, with a real nostalgic look to it.

Compete in GPs, Elimination Races, Time Trials, Checkpoint Races, and one-on-one Rival Races. In between events, choose how to upgrade your car, or which staff perks to equip: from sponsored car components to faster pit stops. When you’ve won a season, progress to the next decade of racing and face a new set of opponents and challenges in a brand new car!

Race a myriad of events across the decades at some of the most iconic racing locations around the world. Earn rewards for setting personal bests!

Enjoy the game with your friends with a fun split-screen social multiplayer mode. Play with 2, 3, or 4 players, choose your car, driver, handicap, and play mode, and any of the tracks to compete on. Points carry over from event to event, so it’s as easy to play one race as it is to play a whole season of racing together.

New Star GP is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam) in 2023.
