Perhaps the biggest highlight of today’s update is the new audio package for the iconic Lancia Delta S4. The updated audio features recordings of the real-world Delta rally car according to developer Codemasters.

Many much needed fixes with the audio cut-outs, visibility in the rain from cockpit and finally I won’t have to switch manually between sequential and H-pattern every time I drive a different car. Sounds like a really good update. Speaking of sound… off I go to try the Delta S4 *swoosh*
