After a lot of hard work from the team at Evolution Studios, I’m pleased to announce that we are making the Driveclub PlayStation Plus Edition available to all PlayStation Plus members starting on Thursday, 25th June.
Cool, look forward to giving it a go. Glad the team has finally gotten the game back on track. It was a poor launch but at least they kept at it.
Best racing sim. Period
It's not a sim lol
It is my favorite racing game ever. But it's not a sim game :P It's presented in a very realistic way though, from the art style, to ridiculously real graphics. But in terms of car physics, it's not simulation by any means. But either way, it's still so much fun to play. The physics are probably my favorite in any racing game, just the weight of the cars and how they feel once you truly learn the game. It's so satisfying to drive in this game. I would love to have an open world to drive in, with Driveclub's car physics.
@1.1 That has to be one of the most ignorant and agenda-driven statements I've seen all morning. GG
Is it releasing in the US too? I have a US PS+ account. I am looking forward to playing this! :D It will take me a couple of days to download it though...
It isn't a sim.
They are releasing the offline version first, and slowly rolling out the online version to ensure stable servers. That's cool, but why couldn't they have rolled out the offline version when the full version launched last yr since it was promised they would release at the same time. Either way, glad its coming finally
It would have cut into the sales of the full version. A business decision.
It also may have prompted more sales. There's no way of know bc it didn't happen. I would expect sales to increase once those that have been holding out have the plus out for a test drive.
I'm no journalist but i have a theory as to why this whole ps+ thing didn't launch with the game originally...... The ps3 was free to play on & offline. To have Playstation plus you had to sign up for it to have the benefits but it was an option, you didn't need it to play online. When the drive club team said there'd be a free version of the game to all Playstation plus subscribers i don't think they took into account that to be able to play online with tye ps4 you HAD to have Playstation plus. Hence giving the game away free to everyone who owned a ps4. They would have lost millions straight up. It makes sence and i dare say thats why the hold off with the free version till now some year & half later when most who would have brought it already have. I'm not complaining at all just MAYBE shedding some light on a possible theory.
Guess it got leaked a day too early I would have bet money on PS plus July and lost then cried
Good man Shuhei Yoshida taking responsibility for his studios.
The man can do what is best.
Well I'll guess I have to try it out.
Honestly, they should just give the entire game out for free for PSplus subscribers. It would make Sony look good, and it would increase the games population dramatically. Its also really cheap these days, i remember when it was 20$ at a couple stores.
Honestly, you should just go away. I mean, it's amazing how many people in here have done nothing but bash the game, anyway, but here you are, commenting about the Plus version.
@Satyre28 So where does that leave the early adopters who actually bought the game on good faith? I'm sorry but I don't get the logic of rewarding gamers for NOT buying your game.
Because over 800 days ago they promised the PS Plus edition would be released when PS4 came out. After it was delayed, they still promised it would come out the same time the full version did. And the full version came out, and several months went by with no PS Plus edition. They could have released the offline version at the time and still kept their promise, because that's what their doin here is releasing the offline version first.
Nope!!! They are slowly including players onto servers instead of allowing everybody access at once. Basically, they are controlling server load to make sure that everything runs smoothly. Their best bet honestly would have been to beta test and test server loads. But, at this point, it is what it is.
Oh relax lol. Its finally coming! And he has already apologized enough and you can tell that they are serious about making it work. Congrats to Evolution Studios for seeing this thorough. Late is always better than never.
So they give you the full version for free? They never promised anyone the full version for free. Only the PS+ version. It doesn't make sense to give you a full game you didn't pay for when there are a lot of people that did buy it. The question was, where does that leave people like me, who actually bought the full game? How is that fair to us? Again, you were never promised a free full game. Only the PS+ version. There are other things they can do to make up for their broken release date promise. But you have to remember that games get delayed all the time. I'm not sure why Driveclub PS+ Version gets held to some other standard.
You're getting exactly what Sony promised. Yeah it's a few months late, boo hoo. Shit happens sometimes you don't plan for.
Do you not realize how long its been since this game was supposed to have a Psplus version? Also please dont start with that early adopters stuff, how many games are given on PSPlus and i dont see people complaining that bought it. Hell, Metal Gear was given this month, and i know SOOOO many people who bought it it day one.
Your sense of entitlement is beyond ridiculous. You're getting exactly what Sony promised. The fact that you had to wait 8 extra months to play it, while unfortunate, is not the end of the freaking world. There are worse tragedies in the world.
Ground Zeroes came out over a year ago...
The PS+ edition is not the full game. It is more like a trial or a demo. You can upgrade it to the full game with all the cars and features by paying. How is that hurting the early adopters? Besides early adopters have been playing the game for a year and have gotten their money's worth.
DriveClub has only been out for 8 months... The point that was made was directed towards those wanting the full game for free through PS+ because the PS+ version was late.
Picked up the full edition dirt cheap, so the PS+ edition only servs as a demo at this point, might aswell buy the full version if you like driving games because its so cheap and you get more.
Might as well just give the full version out to be honest. But whatever
So that leaves Half Life 3.
I just played it at a friends house to see if I liked it. Was alot quicker than waiting for the ps+ version!
About time. Can't wait to try it, if I like it enough I'll by the full version. They should have done this a long time ago.
Sweet. Been holding out to give this a try.
Good, I can start playing it again multiplayer again so I can beat all the newbs ;)
Get ready for another delay. It has already has enough release dates, and if something is too good to be true it always is.
If they give the full version wouldn't it still be called the PS+ edition.
Finally get to play a good racing game on. My PS4.
question...if you had the full version before season pass and all but gave copy too little bro. If i download the plus version can i download the season pass with it?
