Evolution Studios community development manager Jamie Brayshaw has shared a few details about the PlayStation Plus Edition of Driveclub.
The PlayStation Plus Edition, which is free for PlayStation Plus subscribers, includes one location (India), 10 cars, 11 tracks and access to all of the game’s modes. While the full edition includes access to all five locations, 55 tracks, 50 cars, and 50 tour events.
PlayStation Plus subscribers can upgrade from the PlayStation Plus Edition for $49.99. However, there’s a catch, if your subscription runs out you will no longer be able to access the upgraded version?which seems like a really odd stipulation that goes against what has previously been done with PS Plus.
“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,” Brayshaw explained. “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.”
Although this may not be the case as game director Paul Rustchynsky has since stated on Twitter that he is “seeking clarification” on losing access to the upgraded version of the game if your subscription runs out. “Those asking about the DRIVECLUB PS+ upgrade, I’m seeking clarification on the matter,” he wrote.
Driveclub is set to launch exclusively for PlayStation 4 on October 7 in North America and October 8 in Europe.
