First Shots of NASCAR Unleashed Rev Into View
I’m gonna take a stab and say that Activision wants to see some of the success EA has had with the Need for Speed and Burnout franchises by creating a more arcade-style racer for speed freaks who care less about the type of suspension or how many pistons their car has and more about just going faster. NASCAR Unleashed pulls many of the more recognizable properties from the NASCAR world from the simulator world and into a “just let me drive” scenario.
Initially, players can pick from 15 of NASCAR’s biggest names, including drivers like Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Jeff Gordon, and Joey Logano. Additionally racing takes place on familiar tracks NASCAR tracks including The Daytona International Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway, Martinsville Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway. It doesn’t end there though. Bringing to mind Titles like Burnout Paradise, NASCAR Unleashed takes the driving to the areas around the famous tracks, down to the beaches and even off-roading through the surrounding cities.
NASCAR Unleashed will be available this holiday season on Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 system, Wii and the Nintendo 3DS. The game is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
