704Games Announces NASCAR Heat 3
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.*
“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.
