With all three of NASCAR’s national series gearing up for the 2017 NASCAR Playoffs, gamers can get in on the action in all three series with NASCAR Heat 2, which launches today for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.
Developed by Monster Games, NASCAR Heat 2 expands on the core experience of last year’s NASCAR Heat Evolution with a deeper career mode supporting the NASCAR XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series as well, with upgraded visuals, physics and damage models, expanded online multiplayer functionality, and the return to the franchise of two-player local multiplayer.
Kyle Busch won the right to be on the cover after beating fellow finalist Martin Truex Jr. in Stage 2 of the All-Star Race in May to claim the honor.
“We’re excited to continue our relationship with Monster Games for NASCAR Heat 2,” Paul Brooks, CEO of 704Games, said in May when plans for NASCAR Heat 2 were announced. “This new game will have a very different look and an enhanced overall experience that reflects the insights of actual NASCAR drivers. Over the coming months, we’ll announce additional new features that we believe will really excite our fans.”
“NASCAR Heat 2 improves on the strong racing foundation established in NASCAR Heat Evolution,” said Richard Garcia, President of Monster Games. “We added a slew of new features designed to take NASCAR games back to their roots, while delivering an authentic racing experience for fans.”
