Driveclub, the racing car video game from Evolution Studios, gets a new update 1.16 that will bring new Evolution Challenges into the game.
Players will be able to get into the "new and improved" Evolution Challenges and compete with friends in the community. There is also a new Evolution Menu to give players easy access to the challenges. Most of the update deals with the new Challenges in Driveclub.
The patch notes also reveal that Evolution Studios is inching closer to the launch of PlayStation Plus Edition. It has said that it is getting ready with improvements to the server as a preparatory ground for its eventual release. The PS Plus Edition was delayed and was "temporarily held back" from release due to server issues. However, it does not have a release date yet.
The studio also clarified that the companion app will be arriving after the PS Plus Edition rolls out.
The new update weighs 0.1GB. This update will be automatically downloaded into the game when players start the game or if the PS4 is in rest mode.
Driveclub, a PS4 exclusive game, had a troubled release in October 2014.
Below are the patch notes of the new update 1.16 for Driveclub (Driveclub Facebook):
- Challenges have been expanded to support an unlimited number of participants.
- Challenge notifications have been integrated into the Social Hub activity feed for easy access.
- The Challenge Menu has a new interface to make it easier to join Challenges.
- Evolution Studios Challenges have been added to the Challenge Menu for direct and easy access.
- Challenges can be set up to last longer: from 1hr up to 4 weeks per challenge.
- Invitation options have been optimised to focus on active players and reduce challenge notification spam.
- More of our favourite #PS4share pictures created by the community have been added to the Menus.
- Significant technical improvements have been made to enhance server connectivity and prepare for the PlayStation Plus Edition.
Evolution studios further clarified that it is fixing the issues with "Hoon-a-Tic" Trophy. "We're changing the way Drifting is recorded to make sure this Trophy is awarded when you reach 1,000,000 drift points," it said. However, the new fix will be introduced in the Game Update that will be rolling out later this month.
The studio further clarified how a driver is awarded: "It's awarded when your Driver Stats for the Drift Overdrive reach 1,000,000 points on the servers," it said.
Players can check the Main Menu in-game to see if their Driver Stats has reached 1,000,000 points in their profile. "If you already have 1,000,000 points you'll get the Trophy straight away when we make this change in a game update later this month," it added.
Players having issues with "Unbeatable" Trophy need to try after the new updates where in they can start over with the challenge.
