NASCAR Heat 5 Now Available On PC, PS4, And Xbox One
I’ve never been really interested in watching an entire NASCAR race, though the highlights are fascinating, but playing the games? That’s another thing entirely.
The games have always been a lot more gripping, but that’s probably true of any of the sports games – it’s generally more fun to actively play it than it is to just watch, at least in my experience, and if you can’t go out and golf/race/drive/swim…then the gaming version is a passable alternative.
NASCAR Heat 5 looks like it’s coming out swinging with a ton of tracks, split-screen support, and up to 40 racers duking it out online – plus the franchise’s deepest ever Career mode!
Check out the launch trailer that commemorates the early access provided by the game’s Gold Edition. Those picking up the standard edition of the game can check it out starting July 10th.
