The Driveclub preload function has been just confirmed to be available two days prior to release.A Replay mode will be added in a free update
So the fan's suspicions were correct replays will be patched in later like weather
Fortunately, like the weather system, the update is free. And PS+ Edition get both for free as well.
Kind of sad that we are at a point in gaming where we should celebrate the fact that something like replay is given to us free of charge.
This plus PCars and GT6 on the PS3 will feed my racing appetite heartily until the announcement of PD's next installment. Glad to see Sony still fully dedicated to the passion of Motorsport, after all these years. Drive on.
Would this preload be also applicable for the PS+ edition or just the full game?
@blitz0623 No. PS+ games are never preloaded. You have to chose to download the game once it becomes available. I don't think they will make an exception for DC.
I suppose the PS+ edition will be smaller in size. I was thinking they might do something like allow us to download the full game but lock the other cars/tracks etc then we just pay the $50 to unlock the full game.
I don't see the problem with that, as long as it is done as good as the weather system seems to be.
Gutted i need to wait for t300 ,night and day playing with wheel over pad,though I'd stick with pad if accustomed to outside view though.
Will the preload apply to the PS+ edtion?
That's good to hear.
What should be deemed standard features for FREE, so generous.
At least they're not charging for it....
if they dont say FREE people starting asking isit free or just some question that could be avoided by just saying its FREE
I'm confused. Can we preloaded the plus edition or just the full release?
I really hope they get these "standard" features in quickly.
Yet another feature not ready for release.
I agree with many of the posters, they should not be given a pass for patching something in later on that should have been there at launch. This game was suppose to release a year ago and even with that extra time basic things are missing? %ucking replay isnt there at launch smfh. As years go by games are released more and more with less content and unfinished and its sad. Thats why i appreciate games like DEmon Souls, Dark Souls, NiNoKuni, and alot of rps games because they releasew with tons of content and replayablity even in todays time.
it would be nice, but if they could do it, I'm sure they would. Game development is becoming more and more complicated, and the process is taking longer and longer and more and more games are announcing delays, and features added post launch... no matter how much time you give them, other stuff creeps in. At some point you just gotta say we are launching on this date, and any feature that's not quite ready will be patched in. Wish there was a magic bullet to solve this, but it's only likely to get worse as gamers demand more features, more and more content and more complexity.
Yes that is also true. It is a valid point. AS hardware becomes more complex so does development. Im figuring at the three year mark will be when devs will be comfortable at least with the Ps4 to churn out, solid games at a faster rate and with what they are suppose to have at launch.
game really looks great
if you are not happy with some things being added later wait till what you want is in then buy, don't just complain its not gonna fix anything, you don't know the reason it was not implemented (if they put it in the game and there are bugs or some shit you complain)
When will the reviews be coming in? Wonder how/if the reviews take into account all missing features in day 1 game. I understand Forza Horizon 2 has weather, day/night, replay, 200+ cars etc which I think driveclub will also have in time. It should not be seen a lesser game just because features are delivered a bit late...
Wow even replays aren't in it at launch. What have they been doing all this time?
It blows my mind that such basic features have not been completed after a year-long delay. I mean, isn't the purpose of any delay to iron out details just like this? And then watching how, despite this, people can complacently sit back and give the developers a pass... it just makes me sad as a gamer. I don't care how much I loved a developer - this crap wouldn't fly with me. People ought to be outraged, not merely thankful that these features are free.
Guys i have a question. Ive just recieved my copy of drive club. But i am worried if i play it before its released date they might ban me for some reason. Should i play it right now or should i wait until its official launch date (miserably)
So there's a free update, awesome. I don't like things that are missing though. Why didn't it make it to the game?
