We’ll start off with a little good news for all you Driveclub owners (because I like to spread premature festive cheer). It looks like you can finally get online!…kinda. The most recent patch released by Evolution Studios has remedied basic connection issues but was, unfortunately, not as effective as they hoped.
“We can see that the majority of you can now get online, but we know that at peak times of the day it can still be hard to get connected, so we are still working to improve connectivity with every update to the servers,” the Sony owned studio wrote.
They continued by saying that “These connectivity issues stem from the same unforeseen server problem that we’ve been working to get on top of since we launched Driveclub, and while we are getting on top of the problem now, we are still working round the clock to keep improving gameplay for you.”
Now for the not so good news. For all you PlayStation Plus subscribers who are waiting for the free version that was promised as part of your premium service, you may be waiting for quite some time. Due to the online connectivity issues the game has been having, the studio has been forced to hold off on releasing it, giving all but this one sentence in regards to it:
“The PS Plus Edition news will come as soon as we have concrete info–sorry to keep you all waiting,”
DriveClub released to mixed reviews on October 8th and is available exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
