Yesterday, Evolution Studios community development manager Jamie Brayshaw said that players who upgraded their PlayStation Plus Edition of Driveclub would lose access to it if their subscription expired. The developer has now clarified that this isn’t the case.

“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 on the PS Blog yesterday. “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.”

Now an update to the same blog post says that the original plan to remove access “was not appropriate,” and when the game launches if a player pays for an upgrade they will retain access regardless of their subscription status.

“Our priority for DRIVECLUB is to enable you to play and enjoy everything it has to offer and PlayStation recognizes that the prior plan for DRIVECLUB entitlement for the upgrade to the PS Plus edition was not appropriate,” the update reads. “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.”

Game director Paul Rustchynsky also confirmed the update on Twitter:

Driveclub is set to launch October 7 exclusively on PlayStation 4.
