Motorsports Games confirmed a new NASCAR game to hit the market in 2021. The game will not be part of the NASCAR Heat series, but open a new chapter instead.

New game engine aims for visual upgrades

In an interview with news page IGN, a representative of Motorsports Games shared insight in their upcoming plans.

The new NASCAR title is said to be released this year, using the Unreal Engine and Studio 397’s rFactor 2 physics. The company acquired Studio 397 and their franchise earlier this year. The most recent iteration of the NASCAR Heat series used Unity. With this change, the developer wants to bring the graphics and the gameplay more onto the level of a AAA-title.

Fans can also be excited about a broader possibility to customize cars, as the game will feature a long awaited paint booth for the first time. The spokesperson also pointed out that there will be many accessibility options included in the game. However, there currently is no further information about how these options will look like.

The interview also featured the first preview images of how the new game might look like.
