    Millad Radman taking us into a brief look at career mode:


    UI seems cleaner, more streamlined, also some minor tweaks and differences. No look yet on chassis degradation (confirmed to be in career mode).

    I just wish they added a couple more dirt tracks.

    I just finished that video and it makes me really glad that I pre-ordered. I can't wait for it to get here.

    This has got to be the oddest bonus I've seen in a console game. Photoshopped the driver, but not the car and the age restriction is for a beer contingency?! It would have made more sense to only place the MENCS decal and a Sonoco sticker and call it good or just do what Hendrick does for all their show cars.

    Wait, am I the only one in NR2003 community who didn't think NASCAR15 by Eutechnyx was all that bad? I kinda enjoyed it. Of course the physics were weird and off but it was an okay'ish experience IMO

    I'm actually really excited for career now. I just wonder what the fonts are.

    I'm really hoping we get some fonts like Aardvark Bold that multiple drivers use, but it seems that they're all gonna be a little weird this year.

    Hey, as long as it doesn't look too horrid, and I get to use the #62, I'm good.

    I think I'm going to give Heat 4 a chance. I never bought Heat 1-3 so I've waited a long time saving my money and its only $49 (just getting regular edition) for my xbox one X. So even if it turns out to be kinda meh I'll at least get some achievements from it. The career mode give me some Nascar Thunder vibes so I think it'll be at least somewhat fun. Worst case it motivates me to play more NR2003 again.

    Well the fonts aren't the greatest, but one of them greatly resembles Jr's DEI font which is cool. We also have some really nice options for the sponsor and scheme itself.

    It genuinely Hertz me that he put the Hertz logos on the black parts of the scheme

    Yeah, that guy definitely isn’t winning any designing awards. lol But I really do like all the different number and scheme options.

    Received my copy yesterday and did a quick race at Daytona. Engine sounds are much improved. AI is also improved. Got too far ahead on the last lap and was passed by three cars coming to the tri oval. More to come later

    I'd love to know how the AI difficulty is. I've never played a Heat game (obviously) but was thinking of just starting on hard. If that makes the races challenging enough where I can sometimes win but usually place just in or outside the top 10 that would be perfect.

    That's going to depend on a series of factors; this year, it isn't solely on AI difficulty, as there is a selection of options in how the AI behave in the environment, when contact is made, recovery ability, pack spread, then there's how your car reacts, tire wire variables.... you get the idea I'm sure. All these things can be modified based on how you prefer the game to feel to you.

    IMO, if you're a pretty savvy driver, the minimum I would run is hard. If you have a lot of racing experience, consider Legend for a real challenge, but, again, that depends on your other environment settings.

    I like how they've gone full-on 'drive it how you want it to drive'. Now if we can just get a localized TGA import system (a back door method exists, but OH BOY is it a pain in the ass)

    They totally redid the AI and how the car drives and everything this year, so I mean not playing any of them before is prolly an advantage

    I’ve run a couple of races at Daytona in the hard setting. Last race was 25% with all settings at normal. Qualified 33 but won by .3. There was obvious bump drafting which helped once you got the hang of it. Car was set up on the loose side and drove well. It is no NR2003 but IMO it is the best of the Heat series

    Can anyone clarify the Martinsville Night track availability? The developers on Twitter say its only for those who pre-order and only for offline use until 2020. Does it not come with the Gold Edition even if bought after the 9/13 full release?
