DRIVECLUB Drift March The March update for DRIVECLUB is out and Evolution Studios continue to better the racer by bringing the changes and requests of their playerbase to the game. Beginning with the big change that 1.27 will bring, is that Drift scoring is much improved, points awarded will actually now make sense and will require the fundamental techniques of drifting in order to get that score shooting up. There will be no more bending the rules as if you were Neo in the Matrix, as driving slow, using your vehicle as some sort of lawnmower or using the walls will result in a penalty. Therefore, you will need to have the angle, speed and preferably stay on the black stuff in order to get a good mark from the virtual judges. Accompanying this radical change of the scoring system is a reset of all Drift Mode leaderboards to ensure a level playing field race course for all involved. Driver, Club and Elite Levels have been given another stretching too, taking the caps for Driver and Club to 120 and Elite to 60, with Elite and Club also having new livery rewards that can be unlocked as players progress. One of the smaller but very cool things Evo do is feature community taken photo mode pictures within the game's menus. This time they've went one step further and created a monster collage using thousands of #PS4share images for the loading screen of both DRIVECLUB and DRIVECLUB BIKES. DRIVECLUB UPDATE 1.27 changelog: 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. The update (0.3GB) is available now and will download automatically when launching the game while connected to PSN.

HARDCORE STREET RACING If there is one thing DRIVECLUB has lacked that mostly all arcade racing titles have, it is city locations. From tomorrow however that will no longer be the case, as part of this year's February update (v1.26) will contain a brand new city track based in Scotland, called Old Town. The new location will come in six variants, is available across the main game and the BIKES expansion and is what is hopefully the first in a series of metropolis street racing environments to come. For those players who are into wanting their vehicles naked... in the assists department, there is a new Hardcore handling mode giving the sort of challenge, that as the name suggests, will require precision, speed and a demeanour that could border on a bit psychopathic. Virtual photographers who have cursed not being able to get those great shots online when with friends can cheer loudly as the new 'Photo Mode' setting in Private Lobbies will make doing that all that so much easier along with much more that you can find in the changelog detailed below. DRIVECLUB v1.26 Update The newest track “Scotland – Old Town” is here, offering 6 track variants to play across all DRIVECLUB & DRIVECLUB BIKES game modes. A new “Hardcore Handling” option is now available, turning off traction control, stability control & other assists. Enable this in Gameplay Settings for a more realistic driving experience. Multiplayer Private lobbies have a new ‘Photo mode’ setting to help you choreograph photos and videos with friends. This disables ghosting, wrong way timers and automated reset to track scenarios. Photo mode screen filters can now be enabled outside of photo mode, while you race. Photo mode now offers extended Zoom and Exposure settings, plus all settings persist between photo captures during an event. Replays have a new option to toggle player tags on and off at any time during the replay when you use the L1 Button. The Dynamic Precipitation option has been improved to reduce the likelihood of persistent rain. 10 new Elite Levels have been added (new cap is 35). 10 new Driver Levels have been added (new cap is 95) with new livery rewards to unlock along the way. 25 new Club Levels have been added (new cap is 85) with new livery rewards to unlock along the way. The loading screen for DRIVECLUB and DRIVECLUB BIKES now show off 2 awesome new #PS4share community photos. Fixed the ‘Weekend Warrior’ Trophy for DRIVECLUB BIKES. Ranking up the KTM 1290 Super Duke R to Bike Level 15 is now no longer a requirement. Includes general improvements for game performance, stability and usability. And all of that is FREE! That's not all for February though, as the update prepares for the forthcoming "No Limits" and "Suzuki" Expansions which will be dropping onto the PlayStation Store on February 23rd. "No Limits" features six events and five trophies along with two new cars: first and foremost of these is the Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 V-Spec II -- a car that is always asked for no matter what the game is about. Yes, even Bloodborne has probably at some point been asked to include a version of the Japanese legend that is known as 'GODZILLA'. The second is another little famous Japanese rocket of the Honda Civic Type-R. "Suzuki" will astonishingly include two Suzuki bikes: the Suzuki GSX-R1000 & Suzuki GSX-S1000 ABS which are no doubt as fast as a flea jumping off a scalded cat! Just to be clear then. Everything is free except for the paid Expansion Pack DLC. Enjoying the game but have noone to talk to? Join our forums and have that no more!

This game just continues to deliver and the photomode images people share are some of the best virtual automotive photography you can see on a console game, if you do have a PS4 and enjoy your racing even just that little bit then be sure to pick up this game. The turnaround from its release is nothing short of astonishing and the price it and its well worth it Season Pass goes for now means there is little excuse to do so.
