February Content Update

This should please a few...

· Players can now save replays of multiplayer races
· In multiplayer, the “Time to Vote” countdown will now end once all players in the lobby have readied
· Player Level wrapping issues at level 257 have been fixed
· Pitting your car during a race will now repair aero damage
· General multiplayer stability improvements, including improved “invite” and “join party” functionality
· Drag light trees will now work correctly in multiplayer races

Out next week with the February car pack

Just seem that over at fm.net, and my reaction was "Thank **** for that".

Just got to hope now that "improved functionality" for invites and parties means not having to party up pre-race. But at the very least, if it means we can all manage to get into a party now that will be an improvement.

Great news on the aero repair too, but it does raise one question. For years they've been telling us that it was too hard to implement and couldn't be made to work. Yet now it's been done in an update rather than in a new game - sounds like we may have been fed a few porkies over the years.

Good old Spiny, always ending on a negative

Let's hope this is a sign of things to come. Never had a single issue getting into a party or lobby but let's hope this fixes the issue for those who do. And great to hear you can repair aero.

I am sure you will still have to be in a party to get invited to the game because as I know it, that is the way the xbox one works and has nothing to do with the game. I could be wrong on this though.

Its great news about the replays.

That's good news. I'll reserve gushing praise until I've tried it myself.

Almost the update that makes it very tempting to go and get the console. Endurance racing will actually be possible.

Distance meter and constantly displayed lap times are a must...if they fix that and I will never moan about anything again

I think the issue was probably fixed in the new game, but a bug. Just like the distance indicator, it's clearly there, just doesn't work.

Smashing multiplayer news though! Big fixing alongside car packs, that softens the blow somewhat.

2 updates in 2 months is unheard of.
All of this would have been much easier to swallow if only they had announced advance plans. Things are looking up.... I think.

MS used to charge $17k for testing title updates on the 360. That's gone out of the window with the XO.

Annoying thing is the HUD meters work on the game you have on disc. It was the day one patch that borked it all up

Really? I never knew that. Intentional perhaps?

I would say that they have.

We can now save replays, so thats mean we can run events again.
That has to be an improvement.
