It seems like a lifetime ago, but Driveclub’s promised PS+ edition has finally made it on to the Playstation Store.
Posting on the Playstation Blog, Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios said “We’ve spent a long time preparing for this launch after some difficult and unexpected set-backs. To make absolutely certain that all players have the smoothest and most stable experience possible we are going to be duly cautious about how we release the game this time around.
Starting on Thursday, all PlayStation Plus members can download DRIVECLUB PS Plus Edition and begin playing the offline mode. Also starting Thursday, we will be rolling out online access to the DRIVECLUB PS Plus Edition and will steadily bring more and more players online while continuously ensuring that all game systems are running smoothly. We know that this might be frustrating after your extra wait already, but hope you can understand that we are taking extra precautions to protect your experience when you do get online.”
The game has suffered endless issues with servers causing most of them. Driveclub itself is a great, solid racer in offline mode and has slowly built up its online ‘club’ to become a good social racing game as well, but early issues and promises of a full PS+ version at E3 2013 still provide a stigma that the game sadly can’t shake.
Driveclub PS+ version is available now for free to download from the Playstation Store in Europe and America and comes with access to all 13 tracks in India, one of six locations in the full game, and 15 cars for your garage.
