DriveClub was still a mess when it was released and so far the patches and updates have helped make the game more playable, but with the latest 3.3GB update which takes the game to version 1.10, it might be time to give DriveClub another drive.
The 3.33GB update adds a total of 11 track types split across five new course which all happen to be in Japan. (Nakasendo/Lake Shoji/Asagiri Highlands/Racerack/Takahagi Hills/Goshodaira) In addition we see that multiplayer time trial is now available in the online mode.
The rest of the update contains more tweaks, gameplay improvements, and some work has gone into improvements to the photo mode. For the future some support has evidently been built-in for additional future add-ons. It is one of the largest updates we have seen so far for DriveClub and it does seem to make significant headway in finally getting this racer up to speed for PlayStation 4 fans.
Give it another drive as DriveClub has for sure improved since the last time you played it.
