It seems like it was written in the stars. Just as we’re about to kick off our new Racing Games Collection, the world of gaming is going mad about this genre once again. Well, maybe not the entire world, but at least the biggest fans of NASCAR. While currently we’re not allowed to have real races, and Fox is hosting an esports tournament with real racers, 704Games announced the new NASCAR Heat 5 game.

According to the announcement, the new game should become “the definitive NASCAR video game experience”. It will be filled with official names, brands, teams, and so on. The release states that NASCAR Heat 5 will feature a Career More in addition to a new Testing Mode which will allow you to tinker with your racing car until you’re satisfied with it.

Here’s an official trailer:

The game should come out in July if nothing stands in its way, but having in mind a recent situation in the world this date might not be final. However, 704Games hope to release the game on July 10th. We should also add that if you decide to pre-order the game, you will get the game a few days early, on July 7th and will be able to enjoy some exclusive digital goodies.

If you’re a European (which you probably are) you might need a bit more information about the NASCAR Heat series. This is the only official NASCAR game since its inception on the original PlayStation console. If you’re a fan of racing you should definitely check it out! The game will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
