EA Sports sends NASCAR 2005 to retail

New racing title gets giant sendoff as game represents first time franchise has been optimized for Xbox Live.

Electronic Arts has taken EA Sports title, NASCAR 2005: Chase for the Cup, to retail. Featuring modified vehicles as well as a variety of production cars such as the Chevrolet C5 Corvette and Ford GT, the game will feature online play on the PlayStation 2 and, for the first time, on Xbox Live.

A new career mode called "Fight To The Top" sees the player rise up through the ranks of the lower-level competitions (NASCAR Featherlite Modified, NASCAR Craftsman Truck, and NASCAR Busch Series) before competing for the Cup. An all-new Intimidator Button will allow players to psyche out their rivals on the track, and post-race confrontations might lead to street races to settle disputes. Online races will allow up to four players at once.
