It's that time of the month again, as DriveClub is about to unleash its monthly dose of DLC and content updates to try and lure you away from the life-hogging Project CARS.
Due to deploy next week, update V.15 will reward dedicated DriveClubers by upping the level cap from 50 to 55 (a commonly requested feature from players who have already maximised their ranking), with additional rewards promised for each level. Even more levels will be added on a monthly basis.
In addition, Evolution will be endorsing their community spirit by peppering the menus with community screenshots, while also adding the ability to finally turn off the on-screen HUD to maximise the immersion and show off DriveClub's glorious graphics without even having to pause the game.
Elsewhere, the latest car DLC pack has been revealed – all we can see is we hope you like Lamborghinis, because that's all you're getting. The Lamborghini Icons pack will include four legendary Lamborghinis: the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, Lamborghini Reventón, Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 Super Veloce and Lamborghini Diablo Super Veloce. We're surprised not to see the Countach or Miura though, considering they're arguably among the most iconic Lamborghinis of all time , unless of course license restrictions are preventing them from being included.
Two more tour events will also be available: the Lamborghini Icons Tour Pack and Torque Tour Pack, each comprising 11 events and 5 trophies.
Meanwhile, the DS Survolt will be May's free car download, an electric Citroen concept car capable of 300bhp with a top speed of 161.56 mph and a 0-62mph time in less than five seconds that marks yet another racing game debut.
Here's a full breakdown of what to expect from the V1.15 update:
» New Driver Levels: You can now reach Level 55 and each new level has a reward.
» A new option to toggle the entire On-Screen Display on and off while you race, without pausing.
