NASCAR Heat 3 2019 Season Update Preview


NASCAR Heat 3 2019 Season Update Preview

For NASCAR fans, there is no better time of the year than this week. Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway, followed by the Daytona 500. And 704 Games is adding to that hype by releasing the NASCAR Heat 3 2019 season update. So what does the new update include? Well, 704 Games actually released a full breakdown of what we can expect come February 12.

  • Updated Driver Roster, Race Teams, Schedule
  • New 2019 Paint Schemes
  • New 2019 Ford Mustang

What has changed this year, unlike with previous seasonal updates, is the 2019 version will have the ability to race online — but only with others who have also purchased the update (obviously). This is a much-welcomed addition, as online racing with NASCAR Heat has become very popular, especially with the title’s esports involvement and league racing.

After spending some time with the newest update for NASCAR Heat 3, the new content really helps with the immersion level of the game, especially with the inclusion of the Ford Mustang in the Cup Series. If running a career mode is what interests you, not a problem, as you can still start in the Xtreme Dirt Series, and work your way up through the Cup series, and have the drivers and schemes be that of the 2019 season.

Regardless of what system you have NASCAR Heat 3 on, have no worries, as the 2019 season update will launch before the Daytona 500 on February 12, 2019, for $9.99 on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store and Steam.

If you’re still looking to purchase NH3, the title can be found online for as low as $20.00, depending on which website you visit.

  1. A bit off topic, and I know it’s (literally) superficial, but I just wish they would have gone with a different game engine. I think the graphic engine is just so limiting and really keeps the game from looking “next-gen”, which is hard for me to get past.
    We’re spoiled to live in an age of so many beautiful games, that this one just falls flat for me.

    $10 for paint jobs in a game that still runs on the Unity Engine, a platform designed primarily for mobile and released in 2005.
    704 Games lacks enough money to build its game on a proper engine, yet it has no problem charging $10 for paint jobs?
    Sorry, but that feels a bit like theft. I'll pass.
    Yeah, I'm passing as well. First of all, it appears you can't carry over career progress from 2018 to 2019 roster and I have no interest in having to start all over again as career mode is the only mode I play. Not to mention that they didn't include the new Sonoma layout even though they included the Charlotte Roval in the 2018 update for NH2. Finally, the NASCAR Heat series has failed to progress and in many ways still lags far behind NASCAR The Game 2015 and NTG 2015 Victory Edtion i.e. paintbooth that isn't even worth the effort, virtually no customizability of AI settings, spotter is completely useless, still can't cycle through results manually and still don't get intervals, fastest laps, and laps lead.

    Yeah, I thought the Roval made the NH2 update worth the purchase. Just not seeing it here.
    The only saving grace of NH 3 is that it races really well on most tracks and series. Otherwise, it's a shallow, antiquated, ugly game that needs a significant visual and depth overhaul.
    I picked it up... Not the greatest game ever as we've all previously discussed, but I've got alot of mileage out of it. Closing in on 300 races probably. All short of course. That being said....
    As for the update itself.... sure, it's nice to have the Mustang for the cup series, but no updates to the truck roster, or Xfinity - which means no Supra in that series either. Just a half assed effort of paint schemes and some new race logos for the 2019 cup series only.
