CONCORD, N.C. – This September, the highly anticipated 704Games release “NASCAR Heat 3” will hit stores.
And Saturday afternoon, the cover art for the game was revealed.
It features all four Hendrick Motorsports teammates – Chase Elliott, William Byron, Jimmie Johnson and Alex Bowman.
“It’s cool to join my three teammates on the cover,” Johnson said. “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,” which will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on Sept. 7, features a deeper career mode, additional racetracks, expanded online multiplayer including online tournaments, and a brand-new fantasy dirt-racing experience.
Players can compete across eight new dirt tracks, making a name for themselves on the small-town circuit before moving through the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Cup Series. They can also manage their own race teams as owners.
“‘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.’”
For those who purchase or pre-order the game at a retail store, “NASCAR Heat 3” will also include a $50 coupon good toward the purchase of any ticket for a NASCAR-sanctioned event through 2019 at any one of Speedway Motorsports, Inc.’s eight tracks as well as Dover International Speedway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
