What’s that, you say? More DLC for NASCAR Heat 3? That’s right – and once again it ain’t cheap!
It’s a hard sell pushing through NASCAR Heat 3 to racing fans, especially when the game is going up against some of the mightiest racers the world has ever seen; the Forza series’ constantly pushing the limits doesn’t help matter. And whilst the draw of NASCAR is possibly too much for many to ignore – the appeal very quickly wanes some more when you notice the sheer cost of the paid content packs that have rolled out since release. Here we are again with another one.
The November Pack for NASCAR Heat 3 pretty much does exactly the same as those which have come before it, delivering a ton of new paint schemes (skins in other words), and just a few new Challenges to the racing scene.
Priced up at £10.39, there can surely be very few who consider these NASCAR packs good value for money, particularly when you take into account the fact that NASCAR Heat 3 isn’t the best racer the world has ever seen, instead most certainly coming across as a bit of a cash cow to ensure the wallets of fans around the globe are opened on a consistent basis.
Now, I’ve got nothing against the addition of new content, but 53 paint schemes, a couple of new audio spotters and just 3 Challenges doesn’t, at least in my eyes, warrant the price tag asked. Yes, it’s lovely to have the chance, and it’s great to see the November pack included in the 2018 Pass with those that have gone before it, but as a standalone add-on? That’s certainly where the issues crop up.
If you really must have some fancy new visuals for your cars, or are so in love with NASCAR that you will just purchase anything and everything related to it, then go ahead, fill your boots – but at least consider what you are actually getting before you hit that download button. Once you’ve weighed up the pros and cons and are still tempted, the Xbox Store will sort you out.
The NASCAR Heat 3 November DLC includes 53 new paint schemes from the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, including 14 race win schemes from the first half of the 2018 season. Also included are 10 schemes from the NASCAR XFINITY Series, 4 from the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, 3 new Challenges, and Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s former spotter and Joey Logano’s current spotter, TJ Majors! Expect paint schemes like the following: MENCS: Kevin Harvick, Atlanta “Race Win” Scheme Kyle Busch, Bristol “Race Win” Scheme Joey Logano, Talladega “Race Win” Scheme NXS: Justin Allgaier, Hellmann’s Scheme John Hunter Nemechek, DAB Constructors Scheme NCWTS: Johnny Sauter, Daytona “Race Win” Scheme Ben Rhodes, Kentucky “Race Win” Scheme Plus many more!
