Evolution Studios continue to bring updates and fixes to Driveclub each month as promised, with Driveclub Update 1.27 now live for all players.
The Playstation-exclusive driving sim has received multiple additions since launch, including a hardcore handling mode in February and a separation of Driver Levels and Elite Objectives in December in order to cease the hindrance of players gaining levels if they are stuck on a particular objective.
Offically titled Driveclub Update 1.27, the latest patch has been detailed via the Driveclub Facebook page, and includes exciting and useful changes including new drift mode scoring, and a raise in the Driver and Elite level caps.
The full list of changes are as follows:
- New Drift Mode scoring: Fast and precise drifts now earn much bigger scores. Going off track, driving slowly or colliding with walls will result in a penalty to prevent exploits.
- All Drift Mode leaderboards will be reset in the days following the update to ensure they offer a level playing field.
- 25 new Elite Levels have been added (new cap is 60).
- 25 new Driver Levels have been added (new cap is 120) with new livery rewards to unlock along the way.
- 35 new Club Levels have been added (new cap is 120) with new livery rewards to unlock along the way.
- The game menus have been updated with new #PS4share imagery to showcase some of our most loved #PS4share photo mode snaps. Keep them coming!
- The loading screen for DRIVECLUB now shows off an awesome new #PS4share community photo collage made up of thousands of your pictures.
- The loading screen for DRIVECLUB BIKES also shows off an awesome new #PS4share community photo collage made up of thousands of your pictures.
- Includes general improvements for game performance, stability and usability.
