704Games recently released a first patch for the new NASCAR Heat game, bringing with it a several minor bug fixes. Written in surprisingly vague language, the new changelog is small but welcomed by the NASCAR Heat 2 community, and shows positive signs that the recently rebranded 704Games are serious about ensuring a positive experience is had by players of the latest officially licenced NASCAR game. Not particularly big on content, the patch nevertheless addresses some of the more noticeable annoyances with the title that have surfaced since launch earlier this month, and hopefully is the first of several that look to help bring the game up to a standard deserving of the premier racing series in North America.
