My wife is a HUGE fan of NASCAR, and Jeff Gordon specifically.  When she found out Activision is releasing a new game, she wanted to know all about it!

Activision’s NASCAR Unleashed Breaks Free From the Oval and Hits the Streets Today

Arcade Racing Action for NASCAR Fans of All Ages

SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Get ready to experience blindingly fast arcade speed and over-the-top racing action as Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc.  (Nasdaq: ATVI), expands on the success of the NASCAR videogame franchise with NASCAR Unleashed. Now available for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation3 computer entertainment system, the Wii from Nintendo and Nintendo 3DS, NASCAR Unleashed  has players breaking out of the oval tracks and onto the uneven pavement of city streets, idyllic countryside roads, pristine beachfront highways and more!

NASCAR Unleashed features 15 of NASCAR’s biggest names, including NASCAR Sprint Cup series drivers Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Jeff Gordon, and Joey Logano. Players will take the wheel of growling, turbo-charged racing machines that will unleash their stock car fury on defenseless city streets. Familiar NASCAR tracks just waiting to be ripped apart include: Daytona International Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway, Martinsville Speedwayand Talladega Superspeedway. Lifelong NASCAR fans and those new to the sport will enjoy careening around the tracks before rocketing away from the grandstands to explore the wide open world, NASCAR style.

The gameplay features forgiving handling and virtually no rules, with the key being bashing and smashing opponents out of the way to earn the trophy. Drafting and power sliding around turns will be the most useful tools in a player’s arsenal; but with loose mechanics they should be vigilant for cars flying overhead in wicked Hollywood style crashes. The wild “Rival” feature turns up the heat: players must compete not only with the other racers but with a given “Rival” who is gunning to knock them out of the lead and to the back of the pack. Distinct game modes available for play include single player championship, time trial challenges, quick races and action-packed split screen multiplayer.

NASCAR Unleashed is now available on Xbox 360, PlayStation3 system, Wii and the Nintendo 3DS for $39.99 MSP. The game is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB. NASCAR Unleashed will also be featured in the Battle of the NASCAR Kids event taking place the weekend of November 18 at the Sprint Cup Championship race in Homestead-Miami.
