We actually get a lot of requests to cover Driveclub. While the game kind of fell off our radar post release, a new update this week has us – and apparently you guys – intrigued.
The February 2016 update for Driveclub contains a lot of the usual bullet points, such as a new track, Scotland – Old Town, and new/refreshed features. But what we’re interested in is something called, ‘Hardcore mode’.
Hardcore mode turns the traction control, stability control & other assists off. Sounds more ‘normal’ to me than ‘hardcore’? #shotsfired
Maybe we’ll have to give this a spin in some cars that are assists dependent, like the Ferrari FXX K below.
In addition to the 1.26 update, the “No Limits” Expansion Pack will be out on February 23rd, featuring 6 Tour events, 5 PSN Trophies & 2 Cars: Honda Civic Type-R & Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 V-Spec II. It’ll cost £2.99 | $3.49 | €3.59.

» The newest track “Scotland – Old Town” is here, offering 6 track variants to play across all DRIVECLUB & DRIVECLUB BIKES game modes.
» A new “Hardcore Handling” option is now available, turning off traction control, stability control & other assists. Enable this in Gameplay Settings for a more realistic driving experience.
