Prior to the Coke Zero Sugar 400, 704Games announced that NASCAR Heat 3 will be available September 7, 2018.
The announcement was made with Hendrick Motorsports drivers Jimmie Johnson, Chase Elliott, Alex Bowman and William Byron in attendance. Those four drivers, along with their cars, will be featured on the cover art for the game.
The sequel to last year’s NASCAR Heat 2 features a deeper career mode, additional race tracks, expanded online multiplayer features and a dirt racing experience named the Xtreme Dirt Tour.
The dirt tour adds an additional rung to NASCAR’s ladder system along with the Camping World Truck, Xfinity and Monster Energy Cup series. NASCAR sanctioned a dirt tour from 1985 through 2001 named the All-Star Series.
With the addition of eight dirt tracks, the game now has 35 total courses – including a dirt road course and the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval.
NASCAR Heat 3 is available for pre-order with a price tag of $49.99.
