After a long wait, the PlayStation Plus edition of Driveclub is finally releasing on PS4. PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download the racing game starting tomorrow, June 25.
The PlayStation Plus edition of Driveclub grants players access to 15 cars and 13 tracks. However, it's worth noting that the game will feature offline modes only at launch, with the online modes of this edition being added gradually to steadily bring players while making sure that the game works smoothly.
"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," said Shuhei Yoshida, Sony Worldwide' boss.
"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 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. We want to make sure we don't overload the servers as we invite millions of PS Plus members to download the game tomorrow.
"We have to take this precaution because Driveclub connectivity is demanding for a multiplayer game, with countless ever-growing social connections across clubs, challenges, multiplayer, and hundreds of thousands of dynamic leaderboards and activity feeds.
"Thank you to everyone who has stood by Driveclub during the past year and for everyone who has accepted the extra wait for the PS Plus Edition. The team at Evolution Studios is working incredibly hard to make DRIVECLUB great for you, to get everyone to have fun racing in clubs and continue the evolution of the game with spectacular updates every month."
