704Games, NASCAR Team Properties’ exclusive console simulation-style video game licensee, announced today that NASCAR Heat 3 will be available in North America on Sept. 7, 2018, on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam.
NASCAR Heat 3 is the sequel to NASCAR Heat 2, with industry leading developer Monster Games returning to the helm. NASCAR Heat 3 boasts a variety of new features, including a deeper career mode, additional race tracks, expanded online multiplayer features including online tournaments, and a brand-new fantasy dirt-racing experience: the Xtreme Dirt Tour.
The Xtreme Dirt Tour in NASCAR Heat 3 allows players to compete across eight new dirt tracks. After finding small-town success, players will experience authentic NASCAR racing as they build a career in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series alongside the biggest names in motorsports. Players will also be able to manage their own race teams as team owners in NASCAR Heat 3.
The cover of NASCAR Heat 3 features 12-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports and the team’s star drivers Chase Elliott, William Byron, Jimmie Johnson and Alex Bowman.
“NASCAR Heat 3 will be the biggest NASCAR console game we’ve ever released,” said Paul Brooks, CEO of 704Games. “Partnering with a powerhouse like Hendrick Motorsports, with its exciting combination of drivers, was a natural choice to honor the spirit of innovation and excitement we’re delivering to fans in NASCAR Heat 3.”
“It’s cool to join my three teammates on the cover,” said seven-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Johnson, driver of the No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. “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 has also expanded its race-ticket coupon program, established with NASCAR Heat 2. Fans who purchase or pre-order NASCAR Heat 3 at retail will receive a $50 race-ticket coupon. Coupons can be redeemed toward the purchase of any ticket for a NASCAR-sanctioned event at any one of Speedway Motorsports, Inc.’s eight tracks, as well as Dover International Speedway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway, through 2019.* (*Offer available while supplies last. Certain restrictions apply. See voucher for details.)
“We love being able to deliver this massive value to our customers,” Brooks continued. “With the $50 race-ticket coupon inside the game, NASCAR Heat 3 is basically free for NASCAR fans planning to attend a race.”
NASCAR Heat 3 is available to pre-order today for $49.99 via Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop and Walmart, with digital pre-orders available soon. Additional information will be available in the coming weeks on the game’s official website: www.NASCARHeat.com.
