According to the Drivclub’s director Paul “Rushy” Rustchynsky, the PlayStation Plus Edition of the game is set to release alongside the retail release despite the long delays of the game. In response to a fan that said that PS Plus version Driveclub is just a demo, he responded:
Yes, the PlayStation Plus version is still happening. I’d also like to confirm that the PS Plus Edition of the game will be available on the same day as the full release.
The PlayStation Plus Edition hasn’t changed. It’s hardly a demo because you get access to all of the game’s features online and offline.
The difference is that you only have 10 cars and you can only race in one country (which gives you access to five tracks with 11 distinct variants).
Evolution Studios also wrote that they are hard at work in improving the visuals, audio and the driving for the game. The racing tracks and cars are also being worked on, so that the gameplay will be at its best at the end of development. In the end, the developer promised to really utilize the power of the PlayStation 4 to bring a great racing experience to the players.
Driveclub is scheduled to release exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on 7th of October later this year.
