Driveclub February Update Detailed
Evolution Studios have revealed the contents of Driveclub’s February update. This update will bring us six new tracks based on the Scotland area “Old Town”. Also contained in the update is a new “Hardcore Handling” option, alongside new Elite, Driver and Club levels. You can check out the full list of changes below.
The update also prepares the game for two new expansions releasing later in the month. They are titled “No Limits” and “Suzuki” with the latter being a bike expansion. Evolution have supported this game with so much content post release that it no longer resembles like the game that launched. As we know the launch was plagued with problems for a substantial period of time. It’s great to see the studio bounce back and turn the game into what it is now. The season pass alone had a whole games worth of challenges and cars. It looks like they plan on keeping this up over the coming year. Driveclub is easily one of the finest racers available on the PlayStation 4.
