Sébastien Loeb Rally EVO DLC Packs Announced, New Patch for Xbox One and PlayStation 4


By announcing two new DLC packs, of which one is certainly going to boil the blood of rallying enthusiasts, Sébastien Loeb Rally EVO is putting up a good fight to remain competitive alongside DiRT Rally.

The Rallycross Pack is going to deliver the new Hell Norway course and two new cars, the Hyundai Veloster Turbo and Ford Focus RS09. These mechanical additions will be supported by 7 new career events in the ‘New Era’ section of the Rallycross World Tour series. The pack will be launched on February 26th.

The Class S Prototypes pack will feature no more than 4 cars of which have barely seen or felt tarmac surfaces: Lancia ECV, Toyota 222D, Vauxhall Astra 4S and Peugeot Quasar. These rare and exciting machines are going to appear on March 18th.


To conclude the prologue, Milestone supplemented the work with a new patch, mending certain bugs on Xbox One and PlayStation 4:

Xbox One

  • Fixed linearity of steering wheels in the menu options
  • Fixed lag reduction when using steering wheel
  • Improved framerate during race sessions
  • Fixed the disappearance of the screen pacenote during a online session, after the pause of the race

PlayStation 4

  • Fixed Thrustmaster TH8A support (multi USB)
  • Fixed input lag and linearity when using steering wheels
  • Fixed shaders for more stable framerate

This concludes the current list of novelties. PC owners should soon get their own list of fixes while United States console owners have yet to receive their own copy of the game, scheduled for March 15th. There is no doubt that exciting moments are ahead of us, so join our SLR Evo thread and share your thoughts and expectations!

      Absolutely not. When you see them in game, especially up close, there’s no way you would be saying that. Even the upgraded standard cars that basically look like Premiums don’t look as good so no, not even close.

    There is no Lancia EV.
    This is the Lancia ECV, or ECV1 when the later ECV 2 was introduced. Wich was the slaughtered and upgraded ECV1, after wich the ECV 1 was recreated from left over parts.
    So both cars excist today.
    ECV1 and ECV2 both came from the Abarth team. As can be seen by their shared project code of SE041.

    That second DLC pack is genius. Four super-rare rally cars that never get enough love in games. It’s a shame they have to be attached to such a mediocre game. Codemasters could certainly learn a thing or two from Seb’s car roster.

    Fantastic title. Initially was put off from the demo experience especially from the FFB feel. Took the risk and grabbed a copy of the FV and have not looked back.

    After installing the initial patch and adjusting the steering to 360′ it has been a blast (Yes I know 360 is not authentic but it feels great to me)

    Rallycross Franciacorta is great fun fighting the wheel and the AI :-) .. love the jumps

    The track layouts and handling are spot on for a rally game. The high concentration required and the resulting immersion is where it should be – only con is the engine sound but not a big issue. Looking forward to the new track and cars – RS09 !!!!

      I would certainly hope the game has improved a million times from the demo. Downloaded the demo the other day and I would say it was the worst Rally experience I have ever had the misfortune to endure! Not prepared to spend a cent on this one as a result. :(
