Driveclub PlayStation Plus Edition Revs up for Launch Tomorrow

DriveClub's PlayStation Plus Edition is back on track and will finally be released to all Plus members from tomorrow, June 25th, Sony confirmed today in an update on the PlayStation Blog

"We've spent a long time preparing for this launch after some difficult and unexpected set-backs," Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Worldwide Studios, wrote.

The PS Plus Edition of DriveClub was announced by Sony and developer Evolution Studios back in 2013 and was originally due for release alongside the regular version of the game in October 2014. However, due to severe server issues which crippled the game at launch, Sony delayed the Plus edition's release. 

DriveClub PS Plus Edition did appear briefly on the PlayStation Store yesterday before being pulled by Evolution. While the game will be out tomorrow, players will initially be limited to offline play.

"To make absolutely certain that all players have the smoothest and most stable experience possible we are going to be duly cautious about how we release the game this time around," Yoshida added.

"We know that this might be frustrating after your extra wait already, but hope you can understand that we are taking extra precautions to protect your experience when you do get online," he added.

Sony will slowly rollout the game's online components to the Plus Edition to ensure the servers remain operational. The PS Plus Edition is essentially a trial version of the full game, which Plus members can unlock for a reduced price.
