Driveclub PS Plus Edition – Limited To 10 Cars And 5 tracks

Driveclub DriverEvolution Studios announced at E3 2013 that PlayStation Plus owners would be getting a free edition of Driveclub, albeit with fewer cars and tracks. After today”s EU PlayStation Blog post by the games” new director – Paul Rustchynsky – this actually means 10 cars and 11 distinct variants of 5 tracks in one country.

Unfortunately, this means you don”t have enough complete the single player mode, making the free version essentially a demo. You can pay to upgrade PS edition to the full release.

  • On and offline modes

  • Track times vary from less than a minute to over best online casino 5 mins
  • Tracks have been made less authentic and “more exiting and enjoyable”

Evolution are also looking into releasing the in game soundtrack by the brilliant Welsh band Hybrid. Personally, I would be all over this in a heartbeat.

Finally, over on IGN, Rustchynsky also confirmed that “you’ll be able to play online, multiplayer races, you’ll be able to join a club, create connections, attend challenges and even play through part of the single-player game and unlock Trophies as well.”
