Update – Sony have now confirmed that DriveClub will indeed be free for PS Plus subscribers at launch!
DriveClub, the long delayed driving sim for the PS4 has finally received its release date of October 8th, nearly a year later from its original date. DriveClub was of course one of the first games that Sony showed off during their initial reveal of the PS4 and always hailed it to be one of the launch titles for the system. Just like Watch Dogs however, DriveClub was announced to be delayed and removed from the launch listings with barely any information following it since that time.
Now though, Sony have given out the confirmed release date along with a new trailer for the game showing off the impressive graphics and attention to detail that caught the eye of so many racing fans when it was first announced.
As well as this reveal, Sony also took to the Playstation Blog to talk a little about the game and the long period of delay it has suffered. They said –
“We planned for the game to be ready for early 2014 and are committed to delivering on our ambitious promise of creating a truly innovative, socially connected racing game. The problem with being ambitious is you have to be prepared to accept there will be challenges along the way. What DRIVECLUB offers has not been previously achieved in this category and because of this, the team needed more time to give you the game you’re waiting for.”
“We are really proud of the incredible work the team has produced – their tenacity and passionate pursuit of excellence is admirable and DRIVECLUB will be all the better for it. Your anticipation for the title since my last update has been a huge source of motivation for the team at Evolution Studios, and I know they are all extremely grateful for your continued support.”
Also announced in the Blog is the change over of the Game Director for DriveClub, with Paul Rustchynsky now taking the helm who previously worked on Motorstorm RC for the PS Vita.
DriveClub will be available exclusively to the PS4 though no details have been released yet around its price or whether it will be free for PS Plus subscribers as it was once listed at. Sony have confirmed more details will be on the way shortly so stay tuned.
