PS4 Racer Driveclub's Long-Delayed Free Version Is Nearly Ready

PlayStation Plus version "in the final stages of development."


The free version of PlayStation 4 racing game Driveclub, which was supposed to launch alongside the main game last year but was later delayed indefinitely, is now closing in on its release.

"We're in the final stages of development now," game director Paul Rustchynsky said to a fan on Twitter.

All PlayStation Plus members will be able to download Driveclub for free, though it should be noted that this version doesn't included everything in the main game.

Driveclub itself, which was originally pegged as a PS4 launch title, suffered through serious server issues at launch in October 2014.

The PS Plus edition was put on hold, with Sony saying it would not release the game until it was confident that the servers would hold up.

If you'd rather play another Sony-developed PS4 racing game, we learned this week that Gran Turismo 7--which will have better crash physics--should launch before 2017.

Are you planning to check out the PS Plus edition of Driveclub when it arrives? Already moved on? Let us know in the comments below.
