Auto Club Revolution – Patch Introduces Focus RS & Victoria Harbour

The Free-To-Play PC based game Auto Club Revolution developed by Eutechnyx recently received the latest weekly patch addressing various issues with the open-beta title.

This weeks patch not only brought changes to various parts of the game and the way it performance but also introduced two new pieces of content to the players future inventory of cars and tracks. This week saw the Ford Focus RS introduced to the long list of cars along with Victoria Harbour Quayside  expanding the list of tracks available to the player.

The Ford Focus RS sits among our Class C line up of cars and comes with an impressive 323 VPR standard. This front-wheel-drive powerhouse is as nimble as it is fast, and will tear around the trickiest of tracks with ease.
