Top Drives PL 8.0 Patch Notes - French Renaissance
Bonjour! The highly anticipated 8.0 update is here - it’s time for the French Renaissance!
174 new cars!
New mountain environment!
‘Quality of life’ fixes
Miscellaneous bug fixes
In case you missed the news, here’s what’s not in 8.0, but will be coming next:
On y va!
We weren’t kidding about a French Renaissance: we’re nearly doubling the number of French cars in the game with 83 new models, introducing Peugeot but also bolstering Renault, DS, Citroën, and, oh, just adding a few more Bugattis while we’re at it. Ooh la la!
We’re also adding 91 US cars, with Pontiac making its Top Drives debut alongside player-nominated additions from Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, Plymouth, GMC, Cadillac, and Chevrolet.
That brings our total to 1,244 cars which we think is, and we say this modestly, pretty tough to beat.
The new mountain environment introduces six new tracks in a range of environmental conditions for you to master.
We’re also introducing some more specific offer packs that will make it easier to find the cars you’re looking for, but you’ll have to wait to see what those are.
For ‘Quality of Life’, when an event has two requirements, selecting both will now show only your cars that match both. If that got you excited, just wait until you get this: when a race is finished, we now display the final race times for each car on the results screen. Mais oui!
We fixed various bugs, but in most cases you won’t notice any difference - just slightly fewer crashes. Le singe est dans l'arbre!
As noted in a separate post, we’ve also implemented some car corrections, and rebalanced RQ and rarity based on everything that has changed since the last balance: corrections, the physics fixes from 7.5 and 7.6, and new cars.
Welcome to the French Renaissance, and bonne chance!
