Dusenberry Martin Racing announced today that NASCAR Heat Evolution is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 13 in North America.
First teased last year when DMi Games obtained the NASCAR license, NASCAR Heat Evolution is being developed by Monster Games, who created NASCAR Heat and NASCAR: Dirt to Daytona.
Here’s the list of features:
- NASCAR like never before – For the first time on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, race as your favorite NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers across all 23 licensed NASCAR tracks in stunning HD.
- Everyone wants to win – Get ready for the most fun you’ve had with a NASCAR game in years! Whether you’re a casual racer or die-hard sim fan, NASCAR Heat Evolution will adjust to your skill level with a brand new AI and Speed Rating system that applies the right amount of challenge for you.
- New & old ways to play – In addition to pick-up-and-place races and Career Mode, the all-new Chase mode allows you to experience the excitement of the final 10 races of the NASCAR season as you compete to take home the prestigious Sprint Cup. You asked for them and we listened… Challenges are back! Relive or rewrite this season’s most memorable moments as the drivers who lived them.
- A proven track record – After over a decade, Monster Games returns to NASCAR. This team of all-stars created the original NASCAR Heat and NASCAR: Dirt to Daytona, two of the most highly rated and best-selling NASCAR titles of all-time. This dedicated group has built NASCAR Heat Evolution from the ground up to ensure a brand new racing experience.
DMR’s licensing agreement with NASCAR runs through 2020 and, as Monster Games President Richard Garcia revealed, this first game has been in development for 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.
In a partnership with Toyota, the first Toyota driver (Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards, Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth, or Martin Truex Jr.) 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 adds, “NASCAR Heat Evolution will take racing fans to a level of realism, excitement and authenticity that has never been seen on a console before.”
