BIG NEWS for our readers on the other side of the pond – our friends over at Deep Silver reminded us that the racing game NASCAR ’14, developed by ETX Racing, is available as of yesterday in North America for Xbox 360. NASCAR ’14 is billed to include the most requested gaming feature from previous titles: online leagues, allowing gamers to band together to overtake rivals on the track. NASCAR ’14 also delivers skill-based matchmaking for the first time in franchise history.
When gamers aren’t competing online, they can build their career or take the wheel of their favorite drivers to relive the best NASCAR moments from 2013 and purchase new 2014 highlights throughout the season. Using authentic physics and real race data from licensed drivers, and featuring all NASCAR-sanctioned tracks, fans can keep current with the 2014 NASCAR season by buying monthly content packs filled with multiple races for only $5 each. NASCAR fans can now do more than just watch the race – they can drop into a recreation of an exact race moment soon after it happens to relive or rewrite history.
With the Daytona 500 only a week away, the level of anticipation for the 2014 NASCAR season is reaching its climax with teams, drivers and fans. We are equally as excited about the launch of NASCAR ’14, as it brings our sport into the homes of gaming enthusiasts across the country.
said Blake Davidson, NASCAR Vice President of licensing and consumer products.
