If you’ve been itching for some rough racing environments thanks to tough climates in DriveClub, you might want to update the game with its latest patch. Extreme weather has been added to both offline and online play, and the update checks in at 1.4GB.
The patch (Game Update 1.08) was announced on the title’s official Facebook page. That announcement included a brief rundown of the new features and “improvements.”
- Adds weather to the game, for online and offline play.
- Adds two new tracks, both including reverse variants: Atlanterhavsvegen in Norway and Sinclair Pass in Canada.
- Adds the option to configure Throttle/Brake controls onto Up/Down on Right Stick.
- Adds the ability to access Club Cars when offline.
- Adds the ability to access Club Paint Jobs when offline.
- Adds track maps and stats to each track card in Single Event.
- Adds player statistics to various panels within Single Event and Challenges.
- Includes more minor bug fixes, performance improvements and usability tweaks.
The update on Facebook also pointed towards what DriveClub owners can expect later on in December.

Which brings me to my question regarding DriveClub for those playing: is it worth a look now? I didn’t review the game for our site, and I’ve been ignoring it for the time being because of its wealth of problems.
Has the dust settled enough to warrant a second look?
