NASCAR Heat 5 has hit the market on July 10. Developer 704 Games and publisher Motorsport Games released the game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam. The fifth iteration of the franchise is the official game of the 2020 NASCAR season. It contains all official teams, drivers and cars from the three NASCAR National Series and the Xtreme Dirt tour.

Career mode offers new features

Once again, stock car fans can race for the NASCAR Cup Series Championship in the career mode, which has been extended this year. The players are now able to have a close look on their racing performance stats such as average finish or average start. 704 Games also implemented more options for customizing cars into the game.

You can now put your vehicles to the test in the new Testing Mode to find the perfect setup for each of the 39 tracks featured in the game.

40-player online mode for hot races

Besides from playing offline, you will once again be able to compete online against up to 39 other racers. Whether you prefer simple racing or competing in the newly added online challenges, NASCAR Heat 5 is set to host big multiplayer action for everybody once again.

The very best drivers in the game currently face off in the eNASCAR Heat Pro League, which is the first-ever NASCAR esports league on consoles. In this league, 28 drivers representing real-world NASCAR teams, fight over a prize pool of more than $200,000.

Season 2 is currently underway. Find more information on the official league website.
