Driveclub December Update is Live, Brings New Cars, Unlockables, Difficulty Settings, and More

Driveclub has a new update. How many times have we seen that before? To be fair, though, it’s nice to see Evolution is still committed to Driveclub, and it shows with all the updates, new content, and even sneaky visual upgrades being added to the game.

The latest update, Driveclub version 1.25, is out now and can be downloaded. It’s not too taxing on your hard drive, either, clocking in at around 400MB. The full patch notes are below, so have a nosey and see what’s new in the latest Driveclub update.
