Dusenberry Martin Racing and Monster Games look set to release a new 2017 livery DLC pack for NASCAR Heat Evolution this February, adding new paint schemes and the new Toyota Camry model.
In something of a slightly dubious move that smells of quick cash grab rather than genuine benefit for NASCAR Heat Evolution owners, the upcoming '2017 Team Update' DLC will not be an actual update to the game, but a simple set of liveries shipped as something of a placeholder until the new NASCAR title hits the shelves later this year.
Although the 2017 update contains all the new paint schemes, driver swops and the new Camry model for next season, still missing are a representation of the new rules for 2017, track change layouts, online compatibility or Monster Energy Cup Series branding...
The new pack will allow players to choose between Race, Championship, and Career modes offline, as well as still being able to select the current 2016 schemes, but you wont be able to take to the track online in the new paint schemes DLC. I fear this isn't really the update fans have been looking for on the eve of the new NASCAR season kicking off at Daytona on February 19th.
All in all it feels to me like the latest DLC from DMR and Monster Games is very similar to the majority of the previous ones, namely a desperate attempt to squeeze more money from fans of the sport before launching the new official 2017 game later in the year.
The 2017 Team Update includes:
- Team & Roster Updates
- New Drivers
- New 2017 Paint Schemes:
#41 Monster Energy car and the #77 5 Hour Energy car make their NASCAR video game debut.
- 2017 Schedule
- New Toyota Camry Model
