Elite Driver Levels And An Enhanced Photo Mode Coming With Next Week’s DriveClub Update


Another week, another batch of updates making their way into DriveClub. Taking to Twitter, Game Director Paul Rustchynsky detailed the contents of next week’s patch, which will come with the usual tweaks and updates, along with bolstering the in-game Photo Mode to give players extra options all in the effort of capturing that perfect racing moment.

Perhaps the most enticing of the bunch, though, is the ELITE drive levels. Testing the best of the best, these challenging race tracks will put your reflexes to the sword, with Rustchynsky noting that “no longer can you just grind Fame to level up, ELITE levels require skill too!”

Here’s a full list of those improvements per Evolution:

Additions to Photo Mode
ELITE Driver Levels
Garage Filtering
New Camera Shakes settings
Face-Off Options
Club Leaderboards in existing Tour Events
A new ‘Random Event’ option
Improvements to club challenge leaderboard
New community loading screen image & updated menus

As for the postponed MyDriveClubApp, Evolution has confirmed that the companion are creeping closer to completion, and the same applies for private lobbies. In truth, early adopters of Evolution’s PlayStation 4 exclusive have had to persevere with numerous setbacks and disappointments, but there’s evidence that DriveClub is finally – finally – beginning to fulfil the team’s original vision.

DriveClub and its long-delayed PlayStation Plus edition are available now on PlayStation 4. Tell us, are you still sinking time into Evolution’s racer? Let us know using the comments below.
