In addition to the new update, Evolution announced that a new expansion pack called Finish Line will be released on March 22. This includes six events, five trophies, and two new cars: Koeniggsegg Regera and Jaguar XJ220. Another expansion, called MV Agusta, arrives on the same day, introducing the same number of events and trophies, but instead of cars, it brings two new bikes: MV Agusta Brutale 1090 Corsa & MV Agusta F4RC. Pricing for those two expansions was not divulged.

Also on March 22, all Driveclub players will receive the Aprilia RSV4 RF ABS bike for free.

Today's free update weighs in at 300MB and brings the size of all of the Driveclub updates to date to 13.5 GB. The update will download automatically when you play Driveclub while connected to PSN.
