704Games have released the much anticipated sequel to 2016's NASCAR Heat Evolution, bringing the latest NASCAR sanctioned game to console and PC marketplaces. Developed over the past few months with the intention of winning back a fan base left somewhat cold following a below par NASCAR Heat Evolution, the much heralded return of NASCAR synonymous game developers Monster Games should really bear fruit in this new title. For many Evolution was a toe in the water for Monster and something of a technical assessment exercise for the developers, aimed to help them understand where the current NASCAR sanctioned gaming scene has changed since their absence from holding the official licence, and with customer feedback and plenty of lessons learnt since last year, it is expected that the new title will be bigger, bolder and better than any that have gone before. As has been covered in great detail both here at RaceDepartment and wider within the sim racing community, the new game will feature a substantial increase in content over it's predecessor of 2016, with new tracks, two additional new series, split screen multiplayers and enhanced online features, on paper at least it looks like plenty of the initial complaints have been acknowledged and addressed within the new title. Available to purchase now across both console and PC platforms, and with a robust DLC offering of paid and free content already confirmed and in line for release, NASCAR fans will have plenty to keep themselves occupied with in the weeks ahead. NASCAR Heat 2 is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
