DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition Details (Updated)

Jamie Brayshaw's Avatar Posted by Community Development Manager, Evolution Studios

Update 2: We know many of you were looking forward to playing the promised PS Plus Edition and we are truly sorry for the delay. Our first priority is to provide you with the best possible experience while playing DRIVECLUB. With the high volume of new players and additional server load the PS Plus Edition is anticipated to bring, we are currently not confident that we can guarantee the best online experience. Until we can ensure that everyone can enjoy the full social connected online experience, we will be postponing the release of the PS Plus Edition until further notice.
UPDATE: Our priority for DRIVECLUB is to enable you to play and enjoy everything it has to offer and PlayStation recognises that the prior plan for DRIVECLUB entitlement for the upgrade to the PS Plus edition was not appropriate. As a result, we have adjusted the PlayStation Plus terms for DRIVECLUB.

Now, If you intend on downloading DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition, and upgrading to the full game experience, you will have access to the full game even if your PlayStation Plus subscription runs out.

Last week we announced the release date for PS4’s first socially connected racing game – DRIVECLUB.

The response we’ve seen to the trailer is seriously overwhelming, and it’s time for some more news.

Welcome to the first of three DRIVECLUB updates this week. DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition has been a hot topic since its announce, so today’s video (the first of three) should answer most of your questions about the actual content included in this edition compared to the Blu-ray version.

One of the recurring questions we keep seeing is about the scale of the PlayStation Plus Edition. The simple answer is that with an active PlayStation Plus subscription, you can download DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition, which comes with one location (India), 11 tracks, 10 cars and access to all game modes.

But why did we choose to offer this particular selection of the game to PlayStation Plus subscribers for free?

DRIVECLUB is inherently next gen. It’s about accessibility for all and building a community of gamers who love online play. DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition is designed to be a quick and easy way for gamers all over the world to join the DRIVECLUB community. You can take part in all the game modes, set, send and compete in challenges, and race online against others in the DRIVECLUB community.

We think you’ll have a lot of fun playing DRIVECLUB once it launches on October 7th, digitally via the PlayStation store and on Blu-ray at your local retailer. If you’re an active PlayStation Plus subscriber and have been playing the PlayStation Plus Edition, but decide you want the full DRIVECLUB experience, you can purchase a one-time upgrade for $49.99. This will give you access to all five locations, 55 tracks, 50 cars and all 50 tour events, as long as your PlayStation Plus subscription remains active.

If you’re not an active PlayStation Plus member, you can still get DRIVECLUB via the PlayStation Store or your local retailer on Blu-ray.

Stay tuned because there’s more content coming tomorrow with the ‘Clubs’ video, explaining why they’re crucial to making DRIVECLUB distinctly different.

Friday’s episode is all about challenges – why we love ‘em, what they give you and importantly, how they’ll make the game infinitely more networked and fun to play in your Club.

Over and out.

So why not releasing a demo and calling it a day.
I feel disrespected.

So I get a watered down version, we are already OVER that. Yeah it has 5 of 200 cars, 1 of 5 countries and by the magic of Sony it was able to come with “all game modes”.

But then If I want to upgrade, I pay $10 less for a version that will be tied to my membership.

I guess I’ll stick with “The Crew”.

I love coming to the Blog and getting answers I need from the staff. This one piece has 401 replies and zero answers. Thanks, Sony.

To all those who complained, you have to give Sony the credit they deserve for acknowledging their mistake and making the decision to fix what they originally stated. It shows that they do read our comments and take what the gaming community has to say very seriously. For all who took the time out of their day to complain and then not thank you for fixing that mistake, I personally thank you for the swift response to this issue. Peace, love and PlayStation!

The PS+ edition is 1/5 of the full retail version. The PS+ edition has 1 of 5 locations, 11 of 55 tracks, and 10 of 50 cars. In my opinion, everyone SHOULD be complaint about the price for the upgrade. If the PS+ edition is 1/5 of the full retail version, then it should be worth around $12. Which means that the price for the upgrade should really be $48. (Sarcasm)

So we get 1 out of 5 countries available, but can still get the platinum? I guess it must be a pretty easy one, not like getting 1st place in every race or something, since they aren’t available.

For real? I’ve been waiting for this since the beginning, this is the reason because I’ve bought PS4 and PLUS to get this and now they are just give away 1 track and an UPGRADE for 50$? GG for me, I’m gonna end up buying another game for 59.99$. This sucks for real. I feel sad… They have let me down.
