NASCAR 21: Ignition Patch 1.3 Details

Motorsports Games have been pumping out patches for NASCAR 21: Ignition. The game has received criticism for its glitches and unplayability, receiving a four out of ten on our SGO Review. Shortly after NASCAR 21‘s disastrous launch, Motorsports Games has released patch 1.2.5, which helped address a host of problems. On Tuesday, the game has received patch 1.3, which adds more fixes to the same areas as patch 1.2.5.
