Sony has outlined its release plans
for the PlayStation Plus edition of Evolution Studios' sim-styled racer Driveclub, revealing that the upcoming free version will feature around one-fifth of the total content found in the full retail release.
While it may be one fifth of the full release, the PlayStation Plus version will feature all game modes, 11 tracks and 10 playable cars. Additional vehicles and tracks can be unlocked either individually via in-game purchases or all at once with a full upgrade option priced at $49.99. The retail and upgraded versions of Driveclub boast a total of five locations, 55 tracks, 50 cars, and 50 tour events.
Sadly, DriveClub players who wish to upgrade from the free PlayStation Plus edition of the game to the full version will only be able to access it while their PS Plus subscription is active, Evolution Studios community development manager Jamie Brayshaw announced via the PlayStation Blog.
"It's about accessibility for all and building a community of gamers who love online play," Brayshaw wrote. "DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition is designed to be a quick and easy way for gamers all over the world to join the DriveClub community. You can take part in all the game modes, set, send and compete in challenges, and race online against others in the DriveClub community."
