Hmm, maybe it's the IGN stream's fault but this doesn't look like the current-gen leap I was expecting. For the most part it still looks like a PS3 Eutechnyx game. The night lighting is nice though.

It also looks like the default setting is arcade-ish (playing bumper cars with little or no repercussion) with the option to choose more sim-like settings. Hope that works out.

Definitely interested in watching simulation mode gameplay. Arcade doesn't look appealing. Amazing graphics though.

Nothing too exciting for me. It seems that Race Now just throws you into the Race with no Qualifying of Pre Race Presentation. Visually looks dated although the 40 Cars on track no doubt presents a big hurdle for developers in this regard.

I think it does look better than the screenshots indicated. I don't like how the player was pushing down on Denny Hamlin so hard and Hamlin didn't spin. Hopefully on the sim setting that won't happen.

Very very different on sim settings - I would go so far as to say night and day.

Looks good, but still have cars bouncing off of each other and the wall will no effects of slowing down. More of an arcade than sim.

Looks alright. Looks like fun. Odd that there was no option to qualify or anything before that "race" mode race. I didn't like how glued the AI cars seem to the track, or how there's no slowdown by anyone when contact is made. I get that this isn't in the sim mode settings, so that has alot to do with it, but hopefully there's customization between the two modes of arcade and sim and it's not just one or the other. I'm sure there's some flexibility there.

Visually, I'm not sure what to think. It seems a bit blah for a next gen title. I was expecting to be wowed more, like Forza 6, or F1 racing from Codies. It just looks... blah. Hopefully it's just a bad feed or something, it just looks bright and washed out or something like that. As someone said previously, kind of like the old visuals from the previous gen games.

My last complaint... we still have to wait until September lol

The career mode, and the customization of your driver is pretty cool. Glad to have something like that. It looks like it's going to be fun to play. It'll be nice to have a nascar game back again. Excited to see more of it as we head towards september.

I like racing games that focus on one type of racing instead of throwing zillions of cars at you. Still this game needs to prove it has some realism to earn my money. I stopped watching NASCAR years ago but I would love a well made NASCAR game since I feel the sport would make for a fun game.
I can live with the graphics. They are not bad looking and I would rather them not be perfect as long as the racing is done really well. I really hope the following elements are included.

The AI needs to be able to make mistakes and can bring out yellows on their own.

Damage needs to happen and needs to have an impact on performance. I don't want big crashes where cars stay in perfect condition.

Mechanical fails for both cpu cars and the human controlled car. I could live without this one but it would be a huge plus.

I haven't bought a NASCAR game in about 7 years, I've tried some on short term rentals, but never liked the games after Dirt to Daytona.

I'm hoping this game makes me buy it

I expected to be a little more blown away with the graphics, so that was a little bit of a letdown. That being said, I'm sure it'll look great. Sometimes those videos don't do the games much justice.

I'm not a crazy hardcore racing gamer, so it doesn't have to be 100% sim for me to enjoy it. If it gets solid reviews and looks fun, I think I'll dive in and give it a shot! I'm definitely going to be following the news.

music to my ears.

I've been waiting a long time for a sim Nascar game to come to the PS4. Holding high hopes that this is it.

God I hope the wrecks look good. Such an immersion killer when it looks like blocks banging into each other, also nice looking AI wrecks is a must too.

Will be sitting down with Matt Dusenberry either next week or the week after for a couple hours to play the newest build and talk about the game - if there is a question you would like me to ask, shoot me a PM
 
# 14 themetallikid @ 07/25/16 06:17 PM
And how did that sit down go? I'm anxious for more updates.

Writing the article as we speak - sit down went great and really impressed with what I played for two hours

Way too hyped for a new game. Last game I really enjoyed was Dirt To Daytona.
 
# 17 montesixpac @ 07/27/16 01:21 PM
My expectations are pretty low, but I still cannot wait just to have a new Nascar game.


I want to know what online play will be like. Can we play a full season or chase? Will there be a full field of cars filled in with AI drivers?

Sorry if this is the wrong thread to put this in....

I'll be playing on Xbox One and I'm having a hard time finding a quality, but not super expensive wheel option.

Anyone have suggestions of pros/cons to wheels they have used with the xbox one regarding other games possibly?

There's a few cheap options but if you think you'll be playing more than just NASCAR and possibly playing some games on PC, the Thrustmaster TX is a good but more expensive option.
