driveclub p1One of the most requested features, outside of the PS+ Edition of the game of course, is the ability to host private lobbies, allowing for friends to gather up and race one another, instead of playing with random players around the world. This is a feature that’s high on Evolution’s list, and will be coming in the future, along with other updates.

» Private lobbies! This is our main focus now that the servers are running smoothly and the PS+ Edition of DRIVECLUB is live.
» DRIVECLUB companion app: We’ll have more news on this soon.
» More free cars: There isn’t a new free car coming in July but we’ve got some awesome cars lined up for you in August and September!
» More Cars & Tours: The packs coming in July mark the end of the Season Pass but not the end of DRIVECLUB! We have much more coming so stay with us.
» More Game Updates: We’re committed to keeping the game fresh and enjoyable for you, so we will continue to make improvements and add features based on your feedback. Please keep sharing your thoughts with us to help us continually evolve the game around you.
