Racing fans will have more than just the top series in NASCAR to enjoy when NASCAR Heat 2 launches later this year.

Developer 704Games has announced that the NASCAR XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will join the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series as playable series in the game.

It marks the first time in nearly a decade that the two lower series will be represented in a NASCAR video game.

NASCAR Heat 2 is the followup to 2016’s NASCAR Heat Evolution. After mediocre reviews, Heat 2 promises an enhanced online multiplayer offering, a deeper career mode, track updates, additional drivers and a number of other new features based on what fans see every week during the 2017 NASCAR season.

Also returning will be two-player local multiplayer.

NASCAR Heat 2 releases on September 12, 2017, and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam (PC).
