Pretty sad when Rocket League has all 3 next gen cars before the officially licensed NASCAR video game does.

Just came from reddit to see if there was any info about this, like what all is changed. Is there any info other than the vague "free update" bit?

Re: Next Gen Update 6/23

I've had about an hour of seat time with the new X/S upgrade. I give it an overall thumbs-up, even though it didn't include the addition of a rear view mirror. The textures are definitely richer, control feels better at 60 FPS, and the force feedback steering with my Thrustmaster TX is more realistic. There's enough there to make me want to have a go at a season, even though the game still feels sort of incomplete.

One thing I did find is that my Thrustmaster wheel lost its force feedback when I changed from an oval (Nashville) to a road course (Watkins Glen). Not only did it lose its force feedback, it's sensitivity was reduced to the extent that I had to go into my wheel's onboard steering wheel ranges and change its range from 900 deg to 540 deg, to get the same sensitivity. I then had to close the game, turn my wheel off, reboot my wheel, start NASCAR 21 using the wheel. This series of actions restored the force feedback, which thankfully, feels pretty natural with the default settings... which can't be changed.

I'm anxious to read the reactions of others to this, but for now, I at least have a NASCAR racing game that I want to give another chance to.

I will say that they've done nothing to help the handoff from autopilot control at the start of the race over to the driver. It took me four tries before I could make it through the first turn at Talladega because the handoff put me in a quick drift, putting me into another car or the wall because of degree of corrections needed were impossible. At veteran difficulty level, I was able to run with the last quarter of the field and felt less threatened by cars diving under me entering turns.

re: NASCAR Ignition Next-Gen Upgrade

The next-generation upgrade is out...and they can't even hit 60fps in 4k on the next-generation consoles.

Wow. That is like the bare minimum, and they have capped fps in 4k at 30fps...in a racing game.
