Driveclub to get a new update on 26 May,

Driveclub, the simulated racing video game from Evolution Studios, will be releasing a new update for the game.

The developer announced that the game update 1.15 will be rolled out on 26 May, 2015. It said while America, Europe and Japan will get the update on 26 May, Asia will see its release on 27 May. The update will be available for download on PlayStation Store.

The developer also promised that it will bring some major fixes for the game, but this will be after update 1.15.

The new update will be adding a new Driver Level – players can now reach Level 55, there will be new menu images showing the best shared pictures, toggle option for On-Screen Display and support for the various Expansion Packs, namely Lamborghini Icons Expansion Pack. It will also add support for DS Survolt. The update will also be bringing improvements to the game's performance and stability.

Evolutions Studios also added that after the update, it will be bringing server upgrades that were promised earlier, private lobbies, improvements to challenges, new Accolades, more cars and tours.

In reply to a fan question on the glitch Hoon-a-tic trophy, the developer said it was working on a fix that will most likely be added in update 1.16. It also clarified that it has fixed issues in Club Leaderboard and was running tests so that it does not "happen again."

When another fans asked if the game is finished in July and if there won't be any new cars or tracks, the replay from the developer was, "We haven't announced anything beyond July just yet."
