Evolution has released a further statement this evening regarding the status of Driveclub, and its shaky launch. As of now the social aspects of the game including the challenges are unavailable, but if you do get online you can compete in multiplayer races. The full statement is below for your reading. Hopefully this launch fiasco will be sorted over the weekend, and we’ll see the PS Plus edition of Driveclub appear fully operational soon.
We are working hard to get everyone online as soon as possible. We have just released another server update that has increased the number of players racing which is good news, but in order to keep building on these numbers we will be running further updates in the coming days that will affect availability of some of the online game features.
Some functions are temporarily unavailable including challenges and social updates, but for those of you that can connect, you will still be able to participate in clubs, leaderboards and online multiplayer races.
This is in addition to the single player Tour mode, custom solo events and car customisation that are available even when you’re not connected. We appreciate this isn’t ideal but this is really the best way for us to improve server performance and online play for everybody, and we will be switching on these features as further progress is made.
Thanks for bearing with us and sending us your supportive comments. Believe us, we know how frustrating this is for you and we are working non-stop to find the best solution to get you all connected and racing together online.
