Update: Over on the EU PS Blog (so this may only be for Europe), SCEE Product Manager Chris Brown said, “What you’ll get as part of the Instant Game Collection in October is still being decided, but DriveClub PS+ Edition wont be alone.” Cool!
Original Story: In the first of three DriveClub updates this week, Evolution Studios gave us this video to explain the differences between the DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition and the full version of DriveClub (skip to :40 for the info):
If you didn’t feel like watching the video, here’s everything included in the PlayStation Plus Edition:
- 1 location (India)
- 11 tracks
- 10 cars
- Access to all game modes
- Ability to unlock trophies
If you decide you want to own the full version of DriveClub, “you can purchase a one-time upgrade for $49.99 [€49.99/£42.99]. This will give you access to all five locations, 55 tracks, 50 cars and all 50 tour events, as long as your PlayStation Plus subscription remains active.”
Evolution also talked about why the PlayStation Plus Edition is a thing:
DriveClub is inherently next gen. It’s about accessibility for all and building a community of gamers who love online play. 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.
Tomorrow’s DriveClub update will explain why Clubs are crucial to making DriveClub different, with Friday’s update all about challenges.
Both the DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition and DriveClub full version will be released on October 7th in North America and October 8th Europe.
