The official new season update trailer looks amazing but we have to wait for the expansion pack to be dropped before giving any further judgments depending on the quality of things and gameplay. 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 reviews for the game have been generally negative on online stores like Steam. Many have complained that apart from the tracks and cars, other things like maneuverability, physics and artificial intelligence look terrible.

NASCAR fans react to the upcoming NASCAR 21: Ignition Update

Fans were generally happy with the arrival of the new season and wished that other games like NBA 2K22 would learn from motorsports and update seasons rather than releasing an entirely new game every year.

Although the game’s initial launch was riddled with bugs, making it almost unplayable, fans over the last two updates and patch fixes have indicated that the state of the game has improved quite a bit. They appreciated Motorsports games to make the new expansion pack free for existing players. Although the mood seemed a bit mixed, he finally found himself really excited to see what the expansion brings to the table.
