NASCAR Heat 2 roars onto PC and console in September.

Monster Games are back with a new and improved NASCAR video game that is set for release in North America on September 12, 2017.

NASCAR Heat 2 promises to build on its predecessor – last year’s NASCAR Heat Evolution – with expanded online multiplayer, a fleshed-out career mode, new drivers, track updates, and various other trappings to align the game with 2017 NASCAR national series.

Paul Brooks, CEO of publisher 704Games, said:

“We’re excited to continue our relationship with Monster Games for NASCAR Heat 2. This new game will have a very different look and an enhanced overall experience that reflects the insights of actual NASCAR drivers. Over the coming months, we’ll announce additional new features that we believe will really excite our fans.”

Richard Garcia, President of Monster Games, added:

“NASCAR Heat 2 improves on the strong racing foundation established in NASCAR Heat Evolution,” said  “We added a slew of new features designed to take NASCAR games back to their roots, while delivering an authentic racing experience for fans.”

704Games have also announced a partnership with Toyota to select the game’s cover star. Voting is now open on the NASCAR Heat website, where you can select your prefered Toyota driver, until May 19, 2017. The two finalists will then go head-to-head at the Monster Energy All-Star Race on May 20, with the first driver to finish Stage 2 earning the reward of adorning the NASCAR Heat 2 box art


NASCAR Heat 2 will be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on September 12, 2017.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
