Driveclub Game Director Paul Rustchynsky has announced via a Facebook post today the Driveclub development team are currently delaying the launch content-lite version free for Plus subscribers due to the increased server loads at the current time and since the game launched.
The high server loads have also effected the companion iOS and Android applications rollout, which did make it to the respected app stores but have since been removed again until the server loads can be eased.
The Driveclub Plus edition of Evolution’s racing game includes 5 tracks with 11 routes alongside 10 cars, compared to the 50 cars and 25 tracks with 55 routes. Players also the option to upgrade for $50 to the full Driveclub game if they have downloaded the Plus version. The Facebook post published an hour ago by Rustchynsky reads :
“In order to help all DRIVECLUB players who have the game already, we’re temporarily holding back the PS Plus Edition and the My DRIVECLUB app to ease the load and traffic to the servers. This should give players a better chance of connecting to the game servers and, once the servers are operating well, we’ll be sure to let you know when the PS Plus Edition and My DRIVECLUB app will be available to download.
To our PS Plus fans, we’re sorry you’re having to wait longer to play, but we want to ensure that when you come on board, you get the best experience possible. Rest assured, if you’ve pre-ordered the full game upgrade from the PS Plus Edition, you will still get the full version of DRIVECLUB digitally, and if you can’t get online you’ll be able to get started offline like everybody else with single player mode as you start your DRIVECLUB tour.
You’ll still be able to earn fame, unlock cars and get to grips with all of the options for playing and creating your own events and challenges – and everything you do will be synchronised with the servers when you do get connected, so you can set-up a bunch of challenges to send out to your friends as soon as you are able to join each other online.
We fully appreciate how frustrating this is for everyone. We want you to get online with your club because racing, challenging and having fun together is what the game is all about. We know that racing with your friends online is what you’ve been waiting for and we are doing everything we can to deliver that experience to you as soon as possible.”
