The community has been crying out for it since WRC3 was released some six months ago, Milestone has finally answered your prayers and released a long-awaited patch that addresses many issues, bringing the game up to version 1.01. The PS3 patch was released earlier this month, but now the PC and Xbox 360 versions have been brought up to date as of today. 

You have to wonder why it took Milestone half a year to release such an incremental update, but better late than never, right? Then again, it may come as a disappointment that, while it does fix a host of bugs and refines the force feedback on Logitech wheels, the belated patch doesn't add any significant updates to the core game. Sadly, it doesn't unlock every car for the WRC Experience and online multiplayer either, despite the frequently requests from fans.    

Here's the official changelog of bug fixes for each version:

Yes the weather does look stunning, such a shame Sony are not willing to give us access at this stage.Would be great to get some footage and hands-on the the revised handling model.

Got to agree, the weather is something else.

IMO the dynamic weather clips look stunning. You forget about the 30FPS limit in place when watching them.

Obviously can't speak for the effects it has on handling, but despite the delays Driveclub is shaping up to be a belter for us PS4 owners.

I agree, I wasn't enjoying the look or feel to the game as much after this current update. More of a sideways step in terms of progress, lets see how it evolved in future builds.

Sure, I think its fair to say the series is living off a combination of its heitage and huge development budget in terms of current content.  In terms of professional racing, from a marketing standpoint you have the GT Academy but that really could be run on many games and simulations.
