Evolution Studios have been true to their word from pre-launch- pre-launch, they promised that DriveClub would be a game that would continue to evolve even after release, based not on some monetization model involving microtransactions, DLC, or season passes, but rather, the feedback of the community that had cropped up around the game.

The newest in that line of updates just released today, bringing the game version number up to 1.12. The update was, as always, pretty substantial, adding a slew of features, while also laying the groundwork for the upcoming Lamborghini update:

  • Adds Replays to the game for all Single Events and Tours. You can now save a Replay at the end of any single player event and view it later from the Replays section.
  • Photomode can be used from within a Replay at any point.
  • Introduces a new Driver Level 50 reward: You can now unlock the Ferrari 599XX Evoluzione for your Garage
  • Refines Drift Mode scoring to increase the points scored for momentum, control and staying on the track.
  • Adjusts the drag reduction when veering off road, so that accidentally leaving the track slows you down more gradually.
  • Adjusts the drag penalty on world collisions, to remove the possibility of gaining any advantage after colliding with a wall.
  • Adds the option to control screen brightness in-game (new Display Option).
  • Adds the option to change the volume levels on individual SFX channels (new Audio options in Settings).
  • Adds the option to make the AI opponents in a Single Event drive in the same car as the one the player chooses.
  • Adds the option to select factory paint jobs for AI opponents (new Display Option).
  • Removes the voicechat icon for any player you have chosen to mute in Multiplayer while you are driving.
  • Adds new categories for downloaded Livery Packs within the Bonus Designs in Customisation.
  • Adds status information about friends playing DriveClub to the Social Hub.
  • Immediately centres the camera view behind the car automatically whenever you reset to the track.
  • Adds support for live streaming via Twitch and Ustream while playing Multiplayer.
  • Improves the atmospheric visual effects further by improving heathaze and introducing mirages, which are visible on the road when light is refracted by hot air.
  • Includes more minor bug fixes, performance improvements and usability tweaks.

The update size is 0.68 GB, and it should be available when you next boot up your game.
