NASCAR Unleashed, a new video game due out in November, promises to foil the laws of physics — as well as to lure a younger audience into the NASCAR fold.
Gamers can choose a turbo-charged race machine from 15 of NASCAR’s biggest names, including Cup series drivers Kyle Busch,Dale Earnhardt, Jr, Jeff Gordon, and Joey Logano.
Unleashed is an arcade racer rather than a simulation. Your laws of physics won’t help you here. You’re expected to just knock other drivers out of the way as you race toward the checkered flag.
Gameplay apparently sees you not only roaring around the famous NASCAR circuits themselves, but also, true to the Unleashed name, breaking free of such constrictions to‘explode onto the pavements, beaches and off-roads of surrounding cities.’
Despite the developers’ fantastical approach to gameplay, Nascar fans should still find the virtual cast of characters and places to be familiar.
The game will be hitting stores this Fall for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii and Nintendo 3DS.
