The PlayStation 4 exclusive Driveclub from Evolution Studios, makers of the Motor Storm series, released earlier this week after being delayed for close to year. Though absent from the mix was the highly anticipated PlayStation Plus Edition. Driveclub was supposed to be a launch title for Sony’s PlayStation 4 with an added bonus if you were a PlayStation Plus member.
PlayStation Plus members were going to receive Driveclub PS+ Edition free of charge once the game launched. Now that the game has launched you would expect that said PS+ members would receive the game, but due to server connectivity issues, Evolution Studios decided to hold back the release of the free version.
A statement was published on the game's Facebook page -- "In order to help all Driveclub players who have the game already, we're temporarily holding back the PS Plus Edition and the My Driveclub app to ease the load and traffic to the servers. This should give players a better chance of connecting to the game servers and, once the servers are operating well, we’ll be sure to let you know when the PS Plus Edition and My Driveclub app will be available to download.”
There is still no word on when the PS+ Edition will be released.
The full version of the game is available at your local retailer for $59.99 if you prefer a physical copy, or digital download for $59.99 or $49.99 if you are a PS+ member on the Playstation Network.
