I’m extremly excited about activision and Eutechnyx taking over the next NASCAR game to come out on the consoles not only as a NASCAR fan, but as a racing fan.
Features are as follows in-depth career mode which is what the past EA titles lacked in, next full 43 car fields for lots of racing action. New damage models extensive car set-ups plus tire wear and brake wear will add a level of realism past NASCAR games have not had. These are rumors as no “official” announcement has been made yet (expecting that in a couple of days) the game is rumored for a release date 2 weeks before the 2011 Daytona 500.
About a month ago, I published a first story about a new NASCAR title from Eutechnyx to be released for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii.
And while official info on the upcoming title is still next to non-existent, first logo art and a feature list have surfaced.
– In-depth career mode
– 43 car grid
– Revolutionary damage model
– Roll overs and blow overs
– Extensive car set-up options
– Full motion captured pit crew and driver
– Tire wear
– Tire pressure/temperature which affects performance
– Tire blow outs
– Brake wear
– Multiple car manufacturers
– Doug Rice and Mark Garrow doing commentary/post race analysis
Even though such feature announcements should always be taken with a grain of salt, it sounds like a proper stock car racing title is coming up here. NASCAR – The Game 2011 will be out in February 2011, no in-game previews of any kind are available yet. (via VirtualR)
