In an interview with VG247
, DriveClub game director Paul Rustchynsky has confirmed that the previously planned PlayStation Plus "free" edition of their PlayStation 4 racer is still on track for release, and was in fact never hurt by the delay.
“No that’s still the same as it ever was," explained Rustchynsky in the interview. "We always wanted to create a PlayStation Plus edition to allow players who aren’t necessarily into racing games to try out the experience and also add the numbers to our social network, because a social network isn’t a network unless you’ve got tens maybe hundreds of thousands of people playing."
The game director also revealed that players can expect a steady amount of DLC, both in the paid and free categories. This will include month-to-month new cars and new tracks, though it hasn't yet been determined what exactly will be given a price tag.
“It’s something we want to keep the Driveclub community active with, so month-on-month you’ll see new cars and new tracks added to the experience, so whether you’re a Blu-Ray player of PlayStation Plus edition player, you’ll be able to continue the experience. But there will of course be additional paid-for content as well, which will be release afterwards.”
DriveClub will be launching on October 8th for PlayStation 4.
