Get ready for more NASCAR action as Activision will unleash “NASCAR Unleashed” this fall. This latest installment in the series will feature 15 official tracks from around the globe along with the drivers from NASCAR Sprint Cup series. David Oxford, Executive Vice President of Activision Publishing said:
NASCAR has been tremendous in that they’ve given us the flexibility to design different kinds of racing games for their vast audience. We really wanted to make something electrifying for all NASCAR fans, not just the hardcore. NASCAR Unleashed gives players a new style of speed and excitement, without sacrificing accessibility.
NASCAR Unleashed will not just be a typical arcade title which does sound cool but, it remains to be seen if it will be able to attract a larger audience or will strict itself to Nascar niche. According to Davidson, vice president of licensing & consumer products at NASCAR and board member of NASCAR Team Properties:
NASCAR Unleashed is a wild and imaginative experience with few real world boundaries. By integrating NASCAR into a high octane, blindingly fast, home racing experience, we can deliver an entirely unique style of racing that will captivate players and help introduce our sport to new fans.
Already feeling the thrill? You will have to wait till this holiday season when the game is released on Xbox 360, PS3, 3DS and Wii.
