With first-party PlayStation VR launch title Driveclub VR coming out soon, Sony has now confirmed some key launch details about the racing game.

First, Driveclub VR will be available on disc and through the PlayStation Store for $40 when it launches on October 13. If you bought the $13 Driveclub season pass by September 28, you are eligible to get Driveclub VR for $20. This promotion aims to celebrate the community, Sony said in a PlayStation Blog post.

The blog post also sheds some light on Driveclub VR's development. The "majority" of the work on the game was done by Evolution Studios, which Sony closed back in March. Sony's WWS Immersive Technology Group, which included some Evolution "veterans," finished the game

"So you can be assured that Driveclub VR is in safe hands," principal programmer Nicola Orru said.

The game features tracks from the non-VR edition, as well as five new "urban" locations. There is also a "cruise" mode where the game drives for you so you can take in the scenery.

Driveclub's non-VR version is available from the PlayStation Store right now for $7.50. This price is only good for PlayStation Plus subscribers, however.

A virtual reality version of Driveclub has been in the works for a long time, beginning its life as only a prototype and one that even made people sick.

PlayStation VR's release date has been confirmed as October 13. The headset, which requires a PlayStation 4 and a camera, will sell for $400. A $500 Launch Bundle will also be available; it comes with everything you need to get started (except for a PS4) and the PlayStation Worlds five-game collection.

All PlayStation VR headset packages in North America also come with a disc that includes demos for 18 different games, including Resident Evil 7's Kitchen teaser, Eve: Valkyrie, and Rez Infinite.
