DriveClub has been finally released as a full game trial on the PlayStation Store.
The game has been removed from the PlayStation Store now which explains that it was an accidental release.
Lets give this puppy a spin!!!!
Sorry I'm 1 of the people that are getting weird error messages (And for the record: I have had PS+ uninterrupted since June of 2012 & I never bought the paid version of Driveclub) 1st error message: You are not eligible to purchase or download this content 2nd error message:You are not able to purchase this product for the folioing reason(s): You have already purchased Playstation Plus What's going on???
Yeah, let's -- ! .....%^#$^%$#^%$, Sony!
"Update The game has been removed from the PlayStation Store now which explains that it was an accidental release." Now we know it will never happen.
@tuglu Actually you now know for sure that there's a ps plus version ready to be released anytime Sony chooses to so there's that.
Update: the game has been removed from the store *insert yao ming laugh pic* XD
AWESOME!!!! I'm so happy for more people to experience this game!! Best game of 2014 for me. Do not call me crazy until you actually try it. The game is EXTRAORDINARY. Best looking game I've ever laid my eyes on, period. And the physics in the game are absolutely godlike, the cars feel so amazing. I got the platinum trophy in this game to show my dedication to it, and even bought the AMAZING season pass which I never do for games today, never. This game is outstanding, PLEASE give it a try people. And not just for 5 minutes, please. You can also upgrade to the full game for only 25 bucks!! That is an unbelieveable deal! If you love racing games, whether sim or arcade, Driveclub is a fantastic game.
It's really underrated, people will finally see how amazing this game is. I'm still playing it regularly, the only racing game I enjoyed more than this was GT4.
Godlike physics? Ok, whatever you say. This game does a fraction of physics processing of Gran Turismo, Forza or Project Cars. It's very arcade and simplified.
if you love arcade racers that focus on graphics first and don't sweat the details of racing, then yes its great. if you are looking for a racing game that really dives into all aspects of the sport then its below average. it doesn't have real "godlike" physics unless by that you mean that the way your car handles/accelerates/brakes are impossible by mere earthly mortals in which case I would say yes.. godlike in deed. or... fantastical. they are all canned, arcade physics. and no car in the real world can handle like they can in drive club. we'd have to wear pressure suits if it were accurate. i don't hate it, but there are waaaaay better racing titles out there with way better physics and capabilities at the end of the day - but i say this as an avid fan of the racing genre and real life racing. to me, if i were to make film analogies here i'd say titles like project cars, forza ms, gran turismo etc are the documentaries of racing and drive club is the big budget hollywood film with lots of effects and things that aren't really possible or accurate to real life.
@BiggCMan...while it IS definitely one of the best looking games that I have seen, I wouldn't say the physics are "godlike". They truly DO serve their purpose in this particular game and add a sense of realness without going full sim. (which is what they were meant to do for this title) @Bloodborn...I agree that it HAS gone underrated AFTER the changes to correct the online issues and the addition of the weather physics. @ELE_Victim...while I agree that the physics aren't churning out GT or Forza level results, I don't doubt that they could. Evolution has stated over and over that they TUNED the physics to the point that they were for the purpose of it being a more "arcade" title. Earlier reports had the physics being more realistic. What I'm saying is that it's not a limitation of the engine so much as developer choice.
I can't belive how many people think that I mean the physics are realistic. Did I say realistic? No. So instead of raging like dumb animals about it, try and process what I said. The physics in Driveclub are not realistic. Does that mean they are bad? NO. But they are such a way that makes the game extremely fun to play, and better than just about every other racing game I've ever played. The cars feel extremely solid and grounded. Driveclub has the best car physics, not the most realistic. Best does not equal realistic, it's what's most fun to feel while using the controller. Idiots over here hating on my comment because they aren't smart enough.
No you didnt say they were realistic. You took it up another level and said they were GOD like! Cant get any realer than GOD creator of all things. Just saying.
Its a good game. Best of 2014?! I doubt it's even top 10.
"EXTRAORDINARY" lol your joking right? It's best feature is it's visuals, everything else is average at best. It's good but compared to other racing games its bad.
The salt of the XBot army is strong with this one.
It's gone now, this was an accident.
Think this will be a PS+ game for July?
That was one BIG accident. Give what gamers they've been waiting for and then take it away 24hrs later. Not a smart move. The PS Plus version is still on the PS Store, but now it says "Unavailable for purchase." If you click on "tell me more.." is says you already own this game. lol!! What a mess.
I hate Beyonce.
don't blame your crappy childhood on my wife!
So, it exists. They just won't release it ASAP. Interesting way to handle something promised almost a full year ago Sony. *sighs and shakes his head*
Been longer than a full year...they promised this in 2013.
@MELMAN26: Well, I mean since Driveclub was actually released. They couldn't deliver before release.
@MELMAN26 They didn't expect the network issues though so it's understandable they delayed the PS+ version.
forn: The network issues don't take over a year after release to fix. It's a shame for the people that bought the game, and even a bigger shame Sony f'ed over the people that they promised it for free like me! Surprised Sony didn't get more flack over this and instead get support! :(
wasn't this game $25 just a week ago? if you really wanted it you would've bought it a long time ago. I don't know how ps+ works behind the doors and I don't care to know. What I do know is that I get free games every month and I'm not going to wait a year and hold my breath to hopefully get something for free when I know I would've enjoyed the game up to that point. PS+ is great, but don't think you're entitled to something asap.
***wasn't this game $25 just a week ago? if you really wanted it you would've bought it a long time ago. *** It's not a matter of wanting, it's a matter of a company promising something, not delivering, saying it's still in the works, and still, almost a full year after release, not delivering on it. ***PS+ is great, but don't think you're entitled to something asap.*** I didn't know that 9 months after they said we would have it is ASAP.
@Christopher It does exist actually. I was among the lucky ones who downloaded the PS+ edition the midnight it launched and upgraded to full game for $40 after playing for 1 hour. It dissapeared the next day though but I already got mine. I think the PS+ version is already up on my local PSN now because I remember seeing it very recently. I'll check again.
Sony! * facepalm *
Finally, 2 years later after promised release date! Oh wait...it was just an error. Still not relased. ROFL They'll release it allright, when everyone will already purchase the retail version.
Yep Sony right around the time the game should get a price drop, go release the ps plus version to boost sales so you can keep the price up. PS guys the graphics are the only good thing about the game. Driving mechanics suck
It's a highly impressive game, so I'm sure many people will enjoy the PS+ version, and it should result in a nice boost of sales for the developers. I hope they'll announce some nice expansions with new locations/tracks soon.
Every month or two a new expansion is released with new cars!
what???? wow, never thought it would see the light of day. Will check it out.
Its gone for some reason, I only just found out, we were soo close :(
Not on UK store
probably tommorow when the store updates, and hopefully
Yeah I scrambled to my PS straight away after finding this news and saw only two editions As the_dark_one says, PS store in europe will update tomorrow Gladly enough I just bought 1 year ps plus so am excited to try it out. Was going to buy the full game anyway
Praise Jesus. Hopefully all those comments on when this thing will be out will now go away.
Nah they'll just switch to "It's about time! Sony promised yadda yadda yadda…"
more like "now we want the full game"
It's not allowing me to purchase this.
it gave me problems too. i just kept trying.
I just went ahead and bought it for 25 bucks. From the sound of it, it'll be worth it.. I tried for a week or two you get it when it was on sale for 20 at Gamestop but couldn't find anywhere that had it within a 40 mile radius. 25 dollars is fair enough for me...
downloading... sneaky sony, why no announcement!?
I say they'll announce on PS Blog still today.
No you are not... "The game has been removed from the PlayStation Store now which explains that it was an accidental release." Bahahahaha
It errors out on me when I try to download. Says it's cause I already have a ps plus membership.. WTF.
Yah, getting the same thing...
Better late than never! I caved and bought it for less than £20 during the 10% offer that was going on that time due to the outage. Great game! I don't play it as much as I should but I enjoy going back to it every now and again. Now I'll have plenty more scores to try and beat the next time I play :D
Admitedly I got the game free with my PS4 as part of a bundle deal. I gave it a spin for a couple of hours but it just wasnt for me. I know I'll get slated by the Sony die hards but the gameplay was truly last gen but with an incredible current gen coat of paint. I would pick a GT game any day of the week over Driveclub. However, its great to see others will be able to find this out for themselves now without first having to buy the game.
That's cool, you just seem to enjoy sims more. Nothing wrong with that. Personally I'm not a huge racing game fan but I will generally buy at least one sim racer and one more arcade-ish racer per generation. Driveclub fills my arcade racer needs just fine. GT will be the sim, no doubt. It is cool that those who have been waiting will finally get to play this game. I'm sure many who do will buy it, especially since it can be found on the cheap these days.
I'm confused. I'm seeing "free trial" which tells me I'm not eligible, but it also says it's $24...
same here guess its a glitch
Telling me im ineligible to download this content.
Got an error.
Took them long enough... but its a great game and I hope it gets more exposure now. People dont realize how polished the game is and how well it actually runs and plays. Seeing is believing so hopefully itll increase its fan base.
With this, MGSV Ground Zeroes and Planetside 2 in the same month, time to buy a 2TB hdd. I'm really grateful, now I have 2 brand new online heavy games for the summer!
I still think this game is a good bit better than FH2. I appreciate fh2 is looked upon as the better game, but dc feels more powerful, and looks better. Those weather effects are nuts !
Stop trying to do the comparison. There is really no game to compare DC to unless you had a PGR(and that had great physics for an arcade racer so who knows). Anyway cant wait for it as ive been stubborn to buy it at retail Ever since Sony decided not to release PS+ version like they promised. But hey better late than Never
lol.. so everyone rejoices when the PS+ version shows up.. annnnnnnnd it doesn't work.. go figure.
What a lie.
https://www.youtube.com/wat... that’s what happened lol
It was removed... Way to continue to piss off your customer!
If it makes you feel any better, at least now we know it exists. Sony just doesn't want us to have it yet. I'm sure there is a perfectly good explanation for it.
Sony are teaching people that good things come to those that wait and wait and wait.
