PARIS, FRANCE – 05/02/2019 –– The Midnight Team just released a free pre-alpha demo of its upcoming game Starxium 20XX, an e-sport oriented team based car game that takes place in a neon inspired universe with retrowave and 80s dreamy synths.

Several modes are already available, such as the "Free Ride" one that let players drive alone to get used to the physics and try some aerial tricks. The "Custom server" and the "Solo Queue" let players join other people to play an online game.

"The learning curve is a bit hard at the very beginning, but players have fantastic experiences, and some even spend hours on the solo mode without goals just to enjoy the drive."

Key features:

Custom multiplayer: Servers accept up to 16 players, and up to 8 teams. Even if the game should be played in 4 versus 4 on competition, any combination is possible like 8v8, 2v2v2v2 or 1v1v1.

A diversified map: With several environments like beaches, forests, tunnels, bridges and cities, the map offer various visual aesthetics and different roads layouts with jumps and halfpipes to perform aerial tricks.

Synthwave soundtrack: 4 synthwave titles composed for the game can be heard within the demo to give that retro feeling with 80s synths on the night roads.

An active community: A strong community is growing around the game on its discord server, playing together and giving feedback to improve the game on the long run.

A short teaser trailer is available here. Screenshots and other informations can be found on the website. To keep up with the latest news from Starxium 20XX, visit the Facebook page and the Twitter account.

"Starxium 20XX was created with e-sport in mind: it’s made to be as fun to play as it is to watch" - says Hugo Attal, founder of The Midnight Team. "That’s why I developed a new genre of vehicle-based game: a 'capture the point' with a high-speed moving point. Players need to stay near a moving convoy so it’s easier for viewers to understand what is going on in the round."

Key features:

Gorgeous neon aesthetics: Did you ever dream to drive fast on the 80s highway, leaving a big tron-like light trail behind you, listening to good old synth music like synthwave? This is the place!

A new genre: The game is 4v4. Strategy and communication are key in order to capture the convoy. Stay near it and throw your opponents off track.

Car Customization: Players can customize the skin of their car but also the components like the motor, the tires, the brakes, and so on… All components are made by 21 different manufacturers.

Game Modding: People can contribute to the game by creating new maps and modes. Some are already planned such as a battle royal racing mode with high speed cars.

The teaser trailer is available here. Screenshots and other informations can be found on the website. To keep up with the latest news from Starxium 20XX, visit the Facebook page and the Twitter account.
