“I’m Really… Pretty Excited” – NASCAR Fans Appreciate Upcoming NASCAR 21: Ignition Update From Motorsport Games

The Official NASCAR game titled, NASCAR 21: Ignition was not something that was well received when it first launched. The game is extremely buggy in nature and launched in a more or less unfinished state. However, Motorsport Games recently announced a new update for the game that will bring the latest season into the hands of fans to play.

NASCAR 21: Ignition’s official Twitter handle confirmed the news with a post expresses, Experience the historic 2022 #NASCAR Cup Series Season for FREE on October 6th with #NASCARIgnition 2022 Expansion!The expansion will see the all-new Next-gen Cup Cars in action alongside the current driver lineup and 2022 season track.

The official trailer of the new season update looks amazing, but we’ll have to wait for the expansion pack to drop before giving any further judgments on the quality and gameplay of things. One thing to note, however, is that the expansion pack is only available for free if you already own the game. Another factor to consider is the fact that game reviews are usually quite negative on online stores such as steam. Many have complained that aside from the tracks and vehicles, other things like the handling, physics, and AI seem terrible.

NASCAR fans react to the upcoming NASCAR 21: Ignition update

Fans are usually excited when a new season arrives and want other games like NBA 2K22 to learn from Motorsport Games and update seasons instead of releasing a new game every year.

Although the game’s initial launch was riddled with bugs, making it almost unplayable, with the last two updates and patch fixes, fans have said that the gameplay has improved somewhat. They appreciate Motorsport Games for making the new expansion pack free for existing players. The mood though seemed a bit mixed, in the end found myself really excited to see what the expansion brings to the table.
