DriveClub Patch 1.10 Brings Multiplayer Time Trial & A Host Of Gameplay Changes

Evolution Studios has started rolling out another patch for its Playstation 4 exclusive racer, DriveClub.

Coming in as version 1.10, the 3.33 GB patch introduces a new online game mode dubbed Multiplayer Time Trial, five new race tracks within Japan (containing a total of 11 variants), and a host of stability fixes and improvements.
