NASCAR Heat Evolution to Have 40-Person Online Multiplayer

Online racing is about to get pretty heated

NASCAR Heat Evolution 2

NASCAR’s debut game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is setting itself up to be quite the memorable racing experience. Confirmed by Dusenberry Martin Racing (DMR), publisher of the upcoming NASCAR Heat Evolution, is an online multiplayer feature that will allow for races containing up to a whopping 40 different players.

“The intensity of competing against a full field of human players is really amazing,” Tom Dusenberry, CEO of DMR said. “The team at Monster Games has set a new bar for racing , crafting a terrific-looking game that can be enjoyed with tons of friends online.”

Developed by Monster Games, the minds behind NASCAR Heat, and NASCAR: Dirt to Daytona, the mutiplayer mode featured within NASCAR Heat Evolution is split into three distinct, separate lobbies: “No Rules”, “Normal”, and “Hosted”. As the name implies, anything is fair game within the confines of the No Rules lobby. Because of this, No Rules has the possibilities of being both a safer area for those new to the game to practice within, as well as an area in which those more accustomed to the game can enjoy messing around.

Players within the Normal lobby can enjoy a more clean-cut, and competitive racing experience as they strive to both improve their skills and come out on top.

The Hosted lobby is intended for the most competitive NASCAR players, as it allows for rooms with a certain degree of control to be created. Players hosting rooms can set minimum player level requirements, and both invite or remove players as they see fit. Players can also create private races, which are ideal for competition among friends or NASCAR game leagues.

Regardless of lobby, players will be allowed to join rooms of other players, or create their own if they which to maintain control over aspects such as track selection, number of laps, number of drivers allowed, and fuel/tire wear mechanics. Upon completion of each race, players will obtain points pertaining to their overall skill level. These skill levels are implemented in order to help make sure that players with similar levels of skill are paired together.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
