The NASCAR Heat video game franchise will return this summer with its fifth edition.
The Gold Edition version of NASCAR Heat 5, produced by 704 Games, is set for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on July 7. The Standard Edition of the game will be released on July 10.
IGN.com has a few early details on the game, which will feature Chase Elliott on the cover of the standard edition and three-time Cup champion Tony Stewart on the Gold Edition.
Like the previous entries in the franchise, players will be able to race with drivers and teams from all three national series: Cup, Xfinity and the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, plus the fictional Xtreme Dirt series.
Along with 34 licensed tracks, eSports support and multiplayer matches with up to 40-players, there is now a testing mode for practice on tracks.
