Big Update for DriveClub Announced

| Feb 10, 2016

DriveClub owners can look forward to the new update this month as it adds 6 “Scotland – Old Town” tracks, a new hardcore handling mode, as well as new level caps and general improvements based on community feedback all for free.

The new Hardcore Handling mode is an option that turns off traction control, stability control and other assists. It promises to create a much more realistic driving experience. Try using it as you race through the six variant tacks for Scotland – Old Town.

Multiplayer lobbies will be getting a photo mode setting so you can better set up shots with you and your friends. It will allow you to turn off ghosting, wrong way timers and automated reset to track scenarios. The photo mode comes with extended zoom and exposures capabilities, giving you more control over your shots. You can now also use the photo mode filters as you race. You can also toggle player tags on and off during replays by pressing the L1 button.

The level caps have been extended, Elite is now at 35, Driver is at 95, and Club levels reach up to 85. New livery rewards can be unlocked as you progress higher through the Driver and Club ranks.

DriveClub is also preparing for some new DLC, No Limits and the Suzuki expansion packs will be out February 23 and feature 6 new events, 5 trophies and two new vehicles each. No Limits gives players the Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 V-Spec II and Honda Civic Type-R. While Suzuki comes with the Suzuki GSX-R1000 and Suzuki GSX-S1000 ABS.


The update comes out tomorrow, February 11, be sure to check out all the new fixes, additions and changes.
