On Saturday, 704Games confirmed its latest installment in the NASCAR Heat series, NASCAR Heat 3.

The game will be available on September 7, 2018, on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Monster Games, responsible for developing both of the first two installments to the series, is back again for NASCAR Heat 3. The new game comes loaded with new features, including a more intensive career mode, more tracks, immersive online and multiplayer options and the all-new Xtreme Dirt Tour.


The Xtreme Dirt Tour in NASCAR Heat 3 allows you to race on eight brand new dirt tracks. “After finding small-town success, players will experience authentic NASCAR racing as they build a career in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series alongside the biggest names in motorsports. Players will also be able to manage their own race teams as team owners in NASCAR Heat 3,” 704Games said in a press release.


Hendrick Motorsports is gracing the cover of this year’s game, including four of its drivers: Chase Elliott, William Byron, Jimmie Johnson and Alex Bowman. NASCAR Heat 3 is also partnered with Hendrick Motorsports, something 704Games is very excited about. CEO Paul Brooks said, “NASCAR Heat 3 will be the biggest NASCAR console game we’ve ever released.”
