Update 1.20 arrives in preparation of the recently announced Horsepower Expansion Pack, the final expansion inclusive in the Season Pass, and one that will make Driveclub the only console racing game currently available to officially feature both the McLaren P1 GTR and Ferrari FXX K, in addition to the Ferrari FXX Evoluzione, Nissan GT-R NISMO, and the Renault Mégane R.S. 275 Trophy-R.

Update 1.20 also prepares Driveclub for the following that will be available alongside the Horsepower Expansion Pack:

  • Adds support for the UniteInSpeed Tour Pack (download from PlayStation®Store).
  • The UniteInSpeed Tour Pack includes 11 new Events and 5 new Trophies.
  • Collect every star in the UniteInSpeed Tour to earn a bonus Livery.
  • Adds support for two new livery packs coming to PlayStation®Store. Each Livery Pack contains 5 new livery patterns to customise your cars with.

The game will continue to improve as the weeks go by and the following notes are of important developments to be made aware that will be coming some time after 1.20.

  • Private lobbies! This is our main focus now that the servers are running smoothly and the PS+ Edition of DRIVECLUB is live.
  • DRIVECLUB companion app: We’ll have more news on this soon.
  • More free cars: There isn’t a new free car coming in July but we’ve got some awesome cars lined up for you in August and September!
  • More Cars & Tours: The packs coming in July mark the end of the Season Pass but not the end of DRIVECLUB! We have much more coming so stay with us.
  • More Game Updates: We’re committed to keeping the game fresh and enjoyable for you, so we will continue to make improvements and add features based on your feedback. Please keep sharing your thoughts with us to help us continually evolve the game around you.

    Driveclub is a nice game, unfortunately always had problems, also now they did not solve all issues, for example since two weeks the world ranking does not work, every day people go down instead to go up, immagine that 2 weeks ago I was number 571, last night I was 703, and I play and earn points every day. One of the good things is that wheels work fantastic, you have only to turn on FBB (Min.max), and angle rotation ( from 270 to 1080 ) the opposite of Project cars where you loose your mind to setup the wheels among a lot of unnecessary settings. In the last update Driveclub released elite levels (from 61 to 65) for the best drivers that need to pass time trial events very very hard. Actually the game costs 29 Eur, I suggest to buy it if you want to have fun, mod multiplayer with 12 drivers for each race is really nice.

    @SavageEvil,before spouting on about the chip and what works and doesn’t work,you should get your facts straight and stop spreading mis-information.

    Obvious post is obvious, so there you go Gtplanet:

    I want these cars in Gran Turismo not DriveClub!!!!!!1!!!1!11!!!!

      EXACTLY. $400 worth of Fanatec CSR and pedals … and I can’t use it. Come on EVO. PCars’ dev did it, you can too. Heck, EVO, you’re a first party game dev (if I’m not mistaken *putting sriracha sauce on foot just in case*)!!!!

      That’s the way the cookie crumbles bro, Sony requires a security chip on all new devices that connect via USB and also be licensed, does Fanatec even have a license to produce any devices for PS4? If not then we understand why they haven’t even gotten a flag allowing their older products like how Thrustmaster got from Sony to allow the TRS 500 wheel to work on PS4 and that has no chip in it at all.

      It’s those certain trees in India – it really is tricky to get enough depth-of-field bur onto them without killing back the mid-ground too much.

      As an aside, the new filters help a great deal with the tonal loss under compression.

    2. KiroKai

      If the default 800p GTP resize in the source post doesn’t hurt the eye enough, they made sure to make it worse… Can DriveClub photos still only be exported through PS4share? So maximum quality is mildly compressed 1080p jpg?
