Fans of NASCAR, get ready. NASCAR Heat 3 is launching September 7, and it’s introducing dirt track racing on the road to the cup.
The game will follow last year’s NASCAR Heat 2, with developer Monster Games once again back at the helm. Like its predecessor, NH3 will feature all three of the main NASCAR series (Camping World Truck, Xfinity, Monster Energy Cup), plus the fantasy Xtreme Dirt Tour.
Players will be able to start their NH3 careers in the Xtreme Dirt Tour. There, they’ll have to master eight new loose-surface tracks before graduating to the big leagues.
If you’re more the managerial type, a team owner option also debuts. In addition, Monster Games is promising esports events too.
The NH3 cover image features Hendrick Motorsports drivers Chase Elliott, William Byron, Jimmie Johnson and Alex Bowman. Johnson chimes in:
“It’s cool to join my three teammates on the cover. A big part of our fanbase has a passion for gaming and for the NASCAR Heat franchise in particular. The details incorporated into the new game are amazing and will give players a really fun experience.”
NASCAR Heat 3 is now available for pre-order at various retailers and online for $49.99. If you’re a fan planning on attending a real-world race, the game could essentially be free, too. While supplies last, each copy will come with a $50 coupon for tickets for events at one of the following tracks through 2019:
- Atlanta Motor Speedway
- Bristol Motor Speedway
- Charlotte Motor Speedway
- Kentucky Speedway
- Las Vegas Motor Speedway
- New Hampshire Motor Speedway
- Sonoma Raceway
- Texas Motor Speedway
- Dover International Speedway
- Indianapolis Motor Speedway
NASCAR Heat 3 lands on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC September 7.
