The latest update for Driveclub is now live and includes a number of tweaks and perks, not least of which is a new drift scoring mode. Here are the patch notes:

  • 35 new Club Levels have been added (new cap is 120) with new livery rewards to unlock along the way.

  • The loading screen for DRIVECLUB BIKES also shows off an awesome new #PS4share community photo collage made up of thousands of your pictures.

  1. Sounds good! Not sure the drifting is up to the likes of Grid, which was way more fun, but it’s still a laugh. Looking forward to trying the bike, what a great way to get people to buy the expansion.

  2. Not a fan of the new drift mode, you can loose your drift points just by turning around, it’s a bit too unforgiving.

  3. Drifting is not my forte but i’m up for any potential extra points i might achieve by fluke.

  4. Fair play, this is a well supported game. If it wasn’t for the launch issues this would have been rightly heralded as one of PS4’s best games.

    As it is, I get the feeling it’s been overlooked.

  5. Another load of elite levels, great, just what I need. I’ve been stuck on level 25 for about 2 weeks.
    But seriously, the support for this game is brilliant. Well done Evolution ;)

  6. The support for the game is phenomenal but I still keep getting the red sentenced ‘disconnected from servers so scores/times will not be registered to current online leaderboards’ or words along those lines ballyhoo.
