Playstation 4’s driving sim, Driveclub, gets another hefty update today with the February 16 update, bringing 6 new tracks and a new Hardcore mode.
Scotland – Old Town is the setting for the new tracks (technically 6 variants on the same track) and for those who are finding a lack of a challenge, Hardcore mode turns off all the assists to give you a much more realistic driving experience.
The update will be available from Feb 11th. Update size is 0.9GB bringing the total size of all updates combined so far to 13GB. It also prepares the game for the addition of the “No Limits” and “Suzuki” Expansions, coming to PlayStation Store on Feb 23rd.
The full list of features and additions in the update can be found below. It’s pretty extensive.
This update brings 6 new “Scotland – Old Town” tracks to the game for free, along with Hardcore handling, new Elite, Driver & Club Levels & many more improvements based on your feedback.
