What’s happening with DriveClub’s PlayStation Plus edition?

2 min read


We have no idea if DriveClub will ever really get that “free” PlayStation Plus edition of the game that was promised. It was meant to launch alongside the retail game, which was released in October last year. It was, as the spoonerism goes, a complete fustercluck. It took months for the retail game to function properly, with patches and excuses being dished up at every turn. The game has come a long way since then, and stands as one of the best-looking games available on the PS4. But what of that fabled PlayStation Plus Edition?

According to developer Evolution Studios, it could be coming soon. There’s a new patch coming for the game, which includes a heft amount of changes. In a post on Facebook , they say they’ll be adding new! and improved! Servers to replace the broken ones they launched with – essentially admitting that they could have fixed the problem with money ages ago.

“The servers that provide Challenges in DRIVECLUB are being replaced and upgraded. This will bring bigger, better challenges and improve server performance across the game as we continue to work to make the PlayStation Plus Edition of DRIVECLUB possible,” they say. Odd, because months ago they said it wasn’t really the servers that were the issue.

Here’s the rest of the changelog:

  • Challenges will be expanded to support an unlimited number of participants.
  • Challenge notifications will be integrated into the Social Hub activity feed for easy access.
  • The Challenge Menu will have a new interface to make it easier to join Challenges.
  • Evolution Studios Challenges will be added to the Challenge Menu for direct and easy access.
  • Invitation options will be optimised to focus on active players and reduce challenge notification spam.
  • More of our favourite ?#?PS4share pictures created by the community will be added to the Menus.
  • Significant technical improvements will be made to enhance server connectivity and prepare for the PlayStation Plus Edition.

Honestly? I don’t think anyone really still cares. We’re three quarters of a year on from the game’s retail release. 8 Months. In video game terms, that’s forever ago.

I think it’s time to forget about the PlayStation Plus edition – and just give the entire game away as a PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection title. You may not recoup your expenses, but at least people would actually be playing your game, and setting up brand recognition for a sequel.

      Trust me, Project Cars is the better racer. Sure DC’s graphics are a tad bit better, but thats about it…

        I have to be honest, I doubt that anything gets close to Project cars’s rain graphics… Or handling for that matter…

          I dunno, the other day I was racing in DC and this one storm was so intense that I couldn’t see where the fudge I was going thansk to all the rain drops on the windshield!

          Sure it sounds awesome now, but heck its so annoying, well for me it is.

            Well, the same thing happened in Project Cars, entered a race thinking woohoo! It doesn’t look like rain! with soft compound tyres fitted, a few laps later, bar the fact that I was sliding all over the place, the road in front of me was barely visible and travelling at a very high speed, as did the barriers and the opponents and the crowd….
