Yet another racing franchise is heading to consoles and PCs this fall. Dusenberry Martin Racing (DMR), NASCAR’s exclusive console simulation-style video game licensee, has announced that NASCAR Heat Evolution will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The brand-new and authentic racing experience is being developed by Monster Games, the company that previously made NASCAR Heat and NASCAR: Dirt to Daytona.
NASCAR Heat Evolution will immerse fans in the door-to-door excitement of stock car racing and allows users to live the experience of taking the checkered flag. The new game will dynamically adapt to any skill level and deliver a true-to-life racing experience and will feature all of the top drivers, teams, and incredibly detailed tracks and environments, giving fans the opportunity to feel what it is like to be a racing legend.
DMR President Ed Martin said, “To deliver an all-new NASCAR game experience, we assembled an all-star team of NASCAR game experts and started with a clean sheet of paper. What the DMR and Monster Games teams have come up with is going to amaze NASCAR fans.”
The game has been in development for the past 18 months.
“The Monster Games team is thrilled to partner again with Tom, Ed and the Dusenberry Martin Racing team. We have been working on NASCAR Heat Evolution for 18 months and are excited about what we have created. From day one, our goal has been to deliver a fun, engaging and realistic racing game designed for NASCAR fans,” said Monster Games President Richard Garcia.
In conjunction with the announcement of the game, DMR has also partnered with Toyota, an Official NASCAR Partner, in a unique video game cover athlete competition. The first Toyota driver to cross the finish line in the 2016 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway will be the cover athlete of NASCAR Heat Evolution.
DMR has released a short teaser trailer, but no gameplay footage has been released yet.
NASCAR Heat Evolution will be available on Sept. 13, 2016, in North America for the PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One and Windows PC.
