There are a whole host of racing titles available on all manner of formats – Forza, F1, DiRT and even Gran Turismo. But the general public only really care about one type of race… NASCAR! Today we see the next iteration in the series arrive with NASCAR Heat 3.

It has to be said that the NASCAR racing titles that have previously released haven’t exactly fared well. Xbox One owners have had the opportunity to delve into the oval arts with NASCAR Heat Evolution and then NASCAR Heat 2, but unless you see yourself as a proper hardcore fan who cares little about any other form of motorsport, you’d have struggled to have had a good time.

Can all that change with NASCAR Heat 3 though? Well, on the face of it things are looking up as this authentic NASCAR experience is bigger and better than ever before. See, not only do you have three NASCAR National Series’ to race through, but you can also take part in a new dirt racing circuit, online with some tournaments and alone in some seriously deep career mode.

Promising gameplay improvement over the previous games, you’ll now find a new racing line that gives instant feedback, the chance to tune in to your own unique driving style and much more.

NASCAR Heat 3 is available right now from the usual digital stores. Us Xbox One owners just need to pop over to the Xbox Store and nab it right now. It’ll set you back £39.99 but those wishing for a deeper experience may well like to purchase a couple of little additions too. The £23.99 2018 Hot Pass will see you gifted 4 more expansion packs by the end of the year, whilst the September Pack for £10.39 adds in 46 new paint schemes from the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, and 10 schemes from the NASCAR Xfinity Series along with 3 new Challenges!
