This one’s been kind of expected since we found out that the PS4’s PlayStation Plus will launch with a special version of Evolution’s upcoming DriveClub (or is that #DRIVECLUB?), but still nice to have some confirmation – a reduced-price upgrade will be available to take the Plus version up to the full retail edition of the game.
Our team in LA revealed earlier in the week that the ‘DriveClub PS Plus Edition’ would be the full game in terms of features, but with a cut-down number of tracks and cars. What was unclear was whether there would be a single ‘upgrade’ available on the PSN, or whether those who wanted to pick up the full game would have to buy the remaining content via micro-transactions.
Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida confirmed to me earlier this evening on Twitter that the former would indeed be the case.
Driveclub is due at the PS4’s launch, confirmed to be ‘this holiday season’ and widely expected to be sometime this November. Click here for our full hands-on preview of the game.
