CarX Street, the latest instalment in the CarX series, was set to be released on PC and mobile devices this year.
After the raging success of both CarX Drift Racing Online and its sequel CarX Drift Racing 2, it was inevitable that we'd see a new CarX title.
CarX Technologies take a new direction with CarX Street and we've got everything you need to know right here!
Latest News - CarX Street delayed again
Despite the recent release of CarX Street on iOS mobile devices, the fabled PC release hasn't happened yet.
Slated on Steam for a 15th December release date, that day has now gone and there hasn't been a word from the developers on Steam. However, CarX Technologies did take to Twitter, to update fans on what was going on:
CarX Street is now listed as "coming soon" on Steam, with no defined release date. It's interesting that CarX Tech haven't mentioned the PC version of CarX Street and instead focused on Android.
So, it can be assumed that the Android version could come before PC and potentially in early 2023. Beyond that though, we're in the dark until the developers choose to tell us more.
Originally, CarX Street was only confirmed for PC. Now though, we know that CarX Street has been released for iOS and will be available on Android devices in the near future.
CarX Drift Racing Online received console ports to both Xbox and PlayStation, but not Nintendo Switch. CarX Street could later come to Xbox and PlayStation, but only in 2023 at the earliest.
Where to pre-order
The only place to pre-order CarX Street is via the Steam Store for PC. The game is expected be free on PC.
We had to wait so long until a trailer was released, but we finally got one back in May. The CarX Street Gameplay video gave us a sneak peak at what this title will look like when it launches in December:
Thanks to CarX Tech's regular updates on the game's Steam page as well, we've been fed a steady stream of screenshots for Street. CarX Tech has also revealed plenty of info when it comes to the game's gameplay!
There will be different factions, called "Clubs" to join within the game too. We've seen that there are at least five, including the Drift Devils, Speed Hunters, Drift United and, Speedline Syndicate.
Each Club has a unique racing style that you need to utilise to impress the Club's leader.
CarX Street will also allow you to purchase real estate, something that adds a whole new element to making your character feel more real.
We've also seen screenshots from both the day and nighttime, so we're expecting to see a day-night cycle in CarX Street. There are a lot of cars to choose from too, and a lot has been revealed.
Finally, customisation and tuning are set to go to new lengths and depths in CarX Street.
There are 18 cars that have been confirmed for CarX Street so far. CarX Tech has revealed these via images on their Steam blog, but we've compiled these into a full list for you right here.
There are muscle cars, pick-up trucks, sportscars and there will be a lot more on the way!
To add more to the game as well, a full customisation system has been implemented in CarX Street. Everything can be personalised, from the car's engine and turbo to its colour scheme.
Sunset City Map
Most will agree that CarX Drift Racing Online is a game that's small on scale, but extremely effective. With the success of Car Drift and its sequel, CarX Technologies have more to play with for CarX Street.
It certainly shows already too, as Street will be the first game from CarX Tech to feature an open-world sandbox to explore.
As for where CarX Street is going to be based, CarX Tech haven't confirmed anything yet. However, judging by screenshots Street will be based in a large city and its name is Sunset City.
More specifically, this a city in East Asia, judging by the style of letters on the road. Could this be a nod to Tokyo Drift?
When it comes to open-world street racing games, one series immediately comes to mind; Need for Speed. With a release date for the next NFS title yet to be confirmed, Street could fill the void that NFS is yet to fill.
It's not an exaggeration to say that the Sunset City map is huge, either. Sunset City looks big and we've done a deep dive into what we can expect to find.
Originally slated for a November 2021 release, CarX Street was delayed by a almost a year to 8 September 2022. Now, CarX Street has been delayed a second time.
CarX Street was set to be released worldwide on PC on 15 December 2022, but we don't have a release date anymore. The Android version will launch soon, with the iOS edition already live now.
