Driveclub developer Evolution Studios will give all players who purchased the full game its premium DLC packs for November for free following a troubled launch and persisting server issues.

"We know you have all been extremely patient and understandably frustrated during Driveclub’s launch, and to show our appreciation for the support during this challenging time, we will be offering the premium DLC packs for November," Evolution said in a post to the game's Facebook page.

November's premium DLC packs—The Ignition Expansion Pack and Photo-Finish Tour Pack along with two livery packs—add five new cars, 22 new tour events, 10 new trophies, and 10 new livery items to play with online and offline.

To insure that players who already purchased the Season Pass get everything that they paid for, the game's Season Pass will be extended to include four extra packs in July 2015. With the free DLC, the Season Pass still includes 38 cars, 176 tour events and 80 unique liveries.

Evolution Studios also said that it's releasing a game update on Tuesday which will add a Photo Mode, improved multiplayer collision physics to reduce spin-outs, adjustments to the corner cutting penalty system, and more. The update also includes three new tracks first announced in September.

Finally, Evolution said it still doesn't know when it will launch the PS Plus Edition of the game.

"Although currently we do not have an update regarding the timing for the launch of the PS Plus Edition, we are continually working on improving the server capacity to enable us to launch the PS Plus Edition as quickly as possible," it said.
