    AI and a physics tweak. Although I am cautiously optimistic pending that and what they may have done with career mode.

    You have to at least give 704 Games credit for actually trying to add new features on their 2nd game, even if it doesn't live up to the hype. This is a huge jump from NH:E. We haven't had multiple series in a NASCAR game since 2008, which is sad.

    I'll concede that. This is a MAJOR jump from what we have (sadly) grown accustomed to in the past 5 years or so. If they get the handling model squared away (sounds like they might have from what has been posted) and don't take shortcuts in the delivery of the items mentioned, they may have themselves a home-run NASCAR game that should sell quite well, and could feasibly make the next iteration much more impressive because they will actually have the capital to get creative, which equates to more in-game content, better games (generally speaking), and more licensing.

    IF they allow for race hosting (because leagues), that is going to draw a fair amount of disenfranchised iRacing people over who just want to race and have fun.

    Again, cautiously optimistic, because the last 5+ years have been hard on those of us who endured Eutchnyx and NH:E.

    At this point, I'm willing to buy an Xbox One just to play this game lol.

    I say Xbox because I already have an Xbox One controller lol

    Well, I'm sold!
    If it has the Truck Series & Xfinity Series, i'm all for getting this!
    I was gonna skip out on it if nothing major changed. Getting the Trucks & Xfinity is major enough for me!

    Well played 704Games, well freaking played.

    I kinda hope that you won't *have* to move up during career mode. You could be like Matt Crafton and just chill in the truck series, lol.

    I'll second that. Move at your own pace would be nice.

    By the sounds of it, you get offers based on your performance, which to me makes it sound like you can move at your own pace and basically be RHR and decline every offer given.

    i'm still gonna wait on streams and reviews like i did with NHE but this is a very big step forward. i might actually get it

    i see Harrison Rhodes in that last shot. gives me hope there might be an actual full field of real Xfinity cars rather than like 10 licensed cars and 20+ fictionals

    Early rumors were that it would be a 40 car NXS field and most of the truck field.

    Hopefully the added series will be in the game and not add-on content LOL

    It's in-game, not DLC. They already stated as much as it's needed for career mode. DLC will likely be paint schemes, challenges, etc., and, later in the lifespan, probably updated Chevy (whatever they run in Cup next year) model. Interesting to note, Brad's truck team is prepping the 2018 Ford F150 to hit the track. I wonder if that will be a free update given that it doesn't seem to have a lot of actual body changes yet. Either way, I'm good with it.

    I'll be cautiously optimistic about it. Let's not forget Monster has truck & dirt physics from D2D so it'll be interesting to see if those are recycled into this game or new ones are made. I do like how they're putting attention into bump/side drafting. I'm hoping it lives up to the hype.

    Will need a minimum Metascore of 75 for me to consider purchasing. Forza and P:Cars have managed to capture the actual racing aspect much better than any NASCAR console game in the past decade. The lower tier series are a nice addition, but if they all end up driving the same, what will be the point?

    Since they said stages and stage points made it in the game, I wonder if the Duels at Daytona made it since it pays points.

    I would love to get this game just because of the news I saw today that all three series are actually going to be included in the game! But my TV is old and can't get a PS4 of XBOX1 so... maybe one day... :rolleyes:
