NASCAR® '14 Is Coming to Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3 system and PC on February 18

700,000+ Votes Counted - Fans Selected Tony Stewart, Three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion To Appear On The Cover

Check out the NASCAR '14 Official Tony Stewart trailer here and 8 new screenshots here.

Deep Silver announced today that the racing game NASCAR '14, developed by Eutechnyx, will launch in North America on February 18, 2014 on the Xbox 360® games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PC for the suggested retail price of $49.99. Pre-order offers at Walmart, Gamestop, Best Buy, Target and Amazon may include diecast cars, exclusive paint schemes and more.
Fueled by high-octane intensity and the opportunity to relive the best NASCAR moments from both the 2013 season packed into the game plus regular downloadable content updates as the upcoming season progresses, NASCAR '14 offers fans the most complete NASCAR® experience yet.

Recently NASCAR revealed that more than 700,000 votes were cast worldwide in the "Drive for the Cover" contest as fans voted Tony Stewart, the three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion to appear onto the cover of NASCAR '14. The injury that kept Stewart off the track didn't stop fans of the driver of the No. 14 Bass Pro Shops / Mobil 1 Chevrolet for Stewart-Haas Racing from beating another fan favorite, four-time champion Jeff Gordon. Stewart plans to return to the track for the Daytona 500 race in February, the same month NASCAR '14 hits store shelves.

"Deep Silver is releasing the best NASCAR racing experience yet to hit video game consoles," said Deep Silver Inc. COO, Geoff Mulligan. "Fans will soon be able to compete in recent high profile races, experiencing the exact same conditions the real drivers faced. With an aggressive post-release content plan, NASCAR '14 is a game NASCAR fans can enjoy all year long."

"With a February launch date, NASCAR '14 will make a great racing season companion for NASCAR fans," said Blake Davidson, NASCAR vice president of licensing and consumer products. "If history repeats itself, the new cover recognition for Tony Stewart will serve as a good luck charm as he heads back on the track and Smoke rises again."

This game was complete trash last time it was released. Buyer BEWARE!

Well, I wouldn't say it was complete trash. The 2011 version needed a lot of work. Inside Line was better but online still had issues from what I am told (I only played offline). I really liked the DLC for Inside Line but it cost $25. I'm in no hurry to get this but will wait for reviews and a price drop.

I should add that it looks like they are finally trying to tie this game to the NASCAR schedule to make it relevant for that particular season -- that is definitely a positive. The fact that the game is being released at a $49.96 price point, though, is interesting and may suggest that the game does not have enough new features to justify a normal starting price point. Who knows?

I hate to say but you are correct.... They are so close to having one heck of a game though.

I saw this, started a reply, deleted it, came back, started another, deleted it, etc.

I have a very tough time with this. The developers have my respect, as they at least TRY to make the game better. It's not like they just push shovelware out the door and try to rake in the money.

The problem I have is I think they just don't understand how to do it properly on a fundamental level. It's like a bunch of old school WWF wrestling fans in the deep south putting down their popcorn and looking over their beer bellies, deciding to make a game about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Sure, they're both in the same general area (contact sports), but they have such fine nuances that trying to get them all right is very difficult. I think Eutechnyx is probably much better suited to making road racing games and other stuff like that. I just don't think that they have shown me anything to lead me to believe that they know how to make a NASCAR sim feel believable.

To this day on PC, I still have issues like setting the fuel to 4x wear, and when everybody has to pit halfway through a race, a few cars manage to NEVER have to stop. They still brake check, they still have weird lines and not enough awareness of the player (or too much awareness, causing pile ups when they erratically maneuver at the last second). Oval racing is so dependent upon momentum and proper lines and tire wear, and coming over from road racing where you can be aggressive from corner to corner and make up ground, the heritage shows through.

I hope it's better, and I'm sure it will be improved over what came before, but I know when I get it, I'll be getting exactly what I expect...a weird interpretation of NASCAR, seen through the lens of an alien. It will resemble the sport, sound like the sport, and look a lot like the sport, but there will be details the more I play that irritate me the more hours I spend playing it.

Any word if this is coming out for next gen consoles?
 
# 7 hgg @ 01/10/14 04:45 PM
Will 14 be available for European xbox360 this year?
 
# 8 TCrouch @ 01/10/14 05:02 PM
They confirmed last year it would not be on next gen consoles.

No idea on a European release.
 
# 9 Rules @ 01/10/14 05:11 PM
Think I will skip a year and wait.
 
# 10 MichaelAngeloTMNT @ 01/11/14 08:09 AM
I bit the bullet last year and tried out iRacing. Wow, nothing is even close to it. Expensive, but it is so much fun.

It might be wrong since in it's European trailer, it shows availability only on PS3 and PSN.

Kinda weird that European xboxers can't have the F'n thing. Just have to wait and see even tho I'm not that optimistic.

At least they have it synced up with the actual Nascar season now. I thought Inside Line was much improved, but still a frustrating experience when it came to pitting and wear etc. If they could solve that, and the AI interaction around the player, they'd have a really solid game. They've got such a great foundation IMO, they just need to get it over the hump.

From the screens and trailer, it doesn't look much different from IL, so I'm not sure what to do here.
 
# 13 Feldman011teen @ 01/14/14 02:58 AM
This game shouldn't be more than $20.
 
# 14 @legendm0de @ 01/22/14 08:05 PM
I've avoided this franchise so far over the years and still never became convinced to try despite their valid effort. However the need to try IL is finally boiling over, and i just found out about NASCAR 14 today which makes me inline for a purchase. But unfortunately this all is sounding more like a commercial moneygrab type of project thus far. I expect to be woo'ed about advancements they made providing a very detailed NASCAR racing experience all month until the game is released but I dont get the feeling they even are going that direction.

Plus this game shying away from next gen is also not a sign of confidence on their part.

I would strongly advise you to taper your expectations. It has good potential but this game is like the Chicago Cubs of driving games. Never quite hits it's potential because of the numerous gameplay bugs and/or curse. LOL @bluengold34_OS

I do not care for you -

Guys,
I'm looking for an alternative for Nascar 13/14 since they are not available for European xbox gamer.
I'm thinking of NASCAR 09 (EA). Fairly recent (this area) and good availability.

Any of you guys recommending me this or there is some other game that I've missed out on?

Thanks

Not a lot of information about this game. I read it was completed prior to the end of the the 2013 season. Really want to to know if they will have Kurt and Kevin Stewart Haas cars in the game and will Austin Dillon be driving the #3 for Childress.
 
# 20 Proof21 @ 02/03/14 01:17 PM
They will have the Daytona update which should have the updated roster. I have seen bits and pieces of information on the game. . But I wish we could get more.
