DriveClub looks to be an amazing racing game, with everything from a McLaren 650S throttling down the road to Suzuki bikes coming in a future DLC. The game looks to have something for everyone, and with companies like Nissan mistaking gameplay for real-life, the graphics are jaw dropping. That said a game is not made by graphics alone and initial reviews saw DriveClub lacking with missing or broken features following a delay. Let’s hope the latest update brings more people into the fold for the game.
The latest update for DriveClub features a new map, based in an old Scottish Town (unsurprisingly called Scotland’s Old Town) is available in three variants to give you a bit of choice.
If the extra map wasn’t enough there is a break from the arcade tradition of the game with the addition of the hardcore mode. Meant to bring a more challenging experience, selecting this option gives you breaks that lock and your tires will scream out if you try to perform some of the more ambitious driving moves.
With an update like this the game now has two feelings, but with players often wanting to seek out new ways to drive faster, is a game mode that makes them slow down a good option? With the new game mode sharing the same leaderboard as the normal mode, you’ll find it a challenge to get your times anywhere near high enough to get near the top.
