Pretty much guessed this when it had the sub title 'PS+ Edition', the question is how much content?
Blackdeath_663  +   903d ago
more importantly can you add/buy this content off psn?
shivvy24  +   902d ago
hey its free so im not complaining
The_KELRaTH  +   902d ago
Agreed, if there's an upgrade path to the full product then it will all works great.

Honestly, I thought the offer of DriveClub for your $50 Plus subscription was too good to be true, so I'm not surprised this is scaled back.

If there's an option to buy the offline part separately, I'd be completely satisfied with this.

It's not like you're only given 1 car and then other cars need to be bought separately like that 1 other fee game lol!

I think Yoshida said Drive+ is an online edition without most of the single player content.

I could be wrong though

@ disagree

From Yoshida

"So at the beginning we typically picked from older games for the instant game collection on Vita and PS3, but because everything is new on PS4 we decided to make a smaller version of Drive Club with all the online features open, included in that instant game collection on day one."

im very happy, was on the fence about getting a racing game anyway. plus I have other launch games in mind. Free version of any kind is awesome. Especially a next gen game.... and at launch.

I'll be downloading it regardless. If I like it enough I might just buy it for the extra content.

Essentially, DriveClub has become Sony's answer to Real Racing 3...
coolmast3r  +   902d ago
What the f*ck is Real Racing 3? And how is it connected with PS4?
IMightBeRetarded  +   902d ago
Cheap micro-transaction filled iphone game, and it is not related to ps4 in any way.
Koyes  +   902d ago
Most retarded comment i've ever read. Congratulations, because that was pretty hard to do, but you did it.

Looks very nice, but why such a dark and dreary looking track.

People want to see bright and colorful tracks when at shows. so it stands out etc.
Baka-akaB  +   902d ago
To each their own , but personally i hate overbright and color satured stuff in racing , even if arcade .

I dont want the military shooter's grey and brown syndrom to apply , but "realistic" tones arent that much to ask

Driveclub was built around reality not some fantasy looking game like forza 5.

Turn up the contrast on your television... Problem solved.
bub16  +   902d ago
i was going to buy this game. but seeing as you get the ps plus edition i shall treat it as a demo and buy something else in the mean time :D
TimeSkipLuffy  +   902d ago
Getting to play a next gen game right from the hook is a cool thing to do! :3
cero55  +   902d ago
im just glad plus is carrying over to ps4 at all.
Redempteur  +   902d ago
Actually the core of teh game is competition online as clubs as long as the online part is fully functionnal , i really don't care much.
Hicken  +   902d ago
Yeah. Though I love playing racing games even on my own, Drive Club's big focus is online. And that's free.

I got nothin to complain about.
jagstatboy  +   902d ago
I Don't play racing games anyway.
ame22  +   902d ago
I really hope they reach the trailer target graphics, I know it's off-screen but the bit of gameplay they showed was a little underwhelming.
mrmancs  +   902d ago
So basically it's a cut down version of the full game forcing a buy of the full game? Personally I'm not happy about this.. Unless it cost just a few quid to make it full , that won't be so bad.
Still, bit peed with this info... Suppose it could be worst , they could have never told us.
Hicken  +   902d ago
Basically, it's the online half of the game, which is what the game's about, anyway. Dunno how that forces anybody to buy the full game.
mrmancs  +   902d ago
What if there is missing content like cars etc? So long it's fully loaded with everything it should have for the online , I'm fine with that.
I'll stop my bitching....
Tei777  +   902d ago
Better than nothing. Its kind of hard to offer a free game on day one.}

I think we will see a lot of small indie titles for the first year of PS4's Instant game collection. No developer can afford to give away a AAA next gen exclusive game for free, not when the user base is so tiny.

can you sit on the copilot seat and watch the race? :)
Pintheshadows  +   902d ago
Out of car view finally confirmed. I asked both Matt Southern and Rusty on Twitter and they gave me coy answers. Good to know it is in. I'll be playing in car regardless but if you are looking to make an accessible racer you have to cater to all tastes. Looks fantastic in action as well.
ginsunuva  +   902d ago
Well, if it was the full game then since PS+ will be used by most people next gen, then everyone would be getting the whole game for free.
flappersack  +   902d ago
I'm thinking it might have the single player component, and the multi player is separate perhaps? Or perhaps have an arcade mode or single races mode, and the full game has those plus a career mode. Either way, looking forward to trying it out!
