The 2014 edition of Deep Silver and Eutechnyx’ popular NASCAR racing series is burning up the track for a February release.
“Deep Silver is releasing the best NASCAR racing experience yet to hit video game consoles,” said Deep Silver Inc. COO, Geoff Mulligan. “Fans will soon be able to compete in recent high profile races, experiencing the exact same conditions the real drivers faced. With an aggressive post-release content plan, NASCAR ’14 is a game NASCAR fans can enjoy all year long.”
“With a February launch date, NASCAR ’14 will make a great racing season companion for NASCAR fans,” said Blake Davidson, NASCAR vice president of licensing and consumer products. “If history repeats itself, the new cover recognition for Tony Stewart will serve as a good luck charm as he heads back on the track and Smoke rises again.”
I can’t say I’m the biggest NASCAR fan in the world, but there are a heck of a lot of people that are monstrously loyal to the racing brand. They won’t have to wait all that much longer to play the newest video game adaptation of the sport on consoles and PC either as Deep Silver has just announced it’s on track for a February 18th green light.
The title, which will have Tony Stewart on the cover thanks to some 700k fan votes, promises fans the chance to play the biggest moments form the 2013 season as well as DLC that’s planned to map out the 2014 campaign. As far as I know, that’s a pretty new idea and one that seems like it should definitely keep the game fresh and interesting for players all through the calendar year.
There’s a bunch of pre-order incentives for NASCAR ’14 going on right now too if you’d like to buy in early. The game has some neat stuff like die-cast cars and exclusive paint schemes for use in play. You can pre-order right now at Walmart, Gamestop, Best Buy, Target and on Amazon.com.
NASCAR ‘144 will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3 and the PC when it drops on the 18th of next month.
