DriveClub owners to get free premium DLC in November; No word on PS Plus Edition

Evolution Software has updated DriveClub owners on the current state of the game, as well as revealing that all those who purchased the game will be given the premium DLC for November for free, as an apology for the issues so far.

"The team at Evolution continues to work diligently to resolve all of the 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 (25th November-SCEA/26th November-SCEE/27th November-SCEJ) free to those who purchased the full game.

"These premium DLC packs - The Ignition Expansion Pack and Photo-Finish Tour Pack along with two livery packs – will give you a total of five new cars, 22 new tour events, 10 new trophies and 10 new livery items to play with online and offline."

The Season Pass will be extended to include four extra packs in July 2015 to ensure players who purchased the pass get everything that was promised. So on top of the free DLC in November, the Season Pass will still include 38 cars, 176 tour events and 80 unique liveries.

In addition to the above, on Tuesday, Evolution will also be releasing the next game update which includes the first round of player requested feature updates.

In addition to Photo Mode, Evolution will be adding:

• Improved multiplayer collision physics to reduce frustrating spin-outs
• Adjustments to soften the corner cutting penalty system
• Options in the club menu to view everything your club has unlocked
• A fix to allow all club owners to update their club badges

This update also includes the first new tracks, announced back in September as part of the studios plans to keep supporting and expanding the game. These include the following free new tracks for online and offline play (also playable in reverse):

• India – Yedepalli
• Scotland – Wester Ross
• Chile – Los Pelambres

Although currently Evolution does not have an update regarding the timing for the launch of the PS Plus Edition, it says that its continually working on improving the server capacity to enable it to launch the PS Plus Edition as quickly as possible.

So what do you think?

Too late. Even if they said anyone buying the game now also got the free DLC I still wouldn't be interested.

Agree with the above ,too little way too late .Ill play this for free when it comes,for me this is the very least they could do .Free DLC with no intrinsic value ,I mean how much would anyone pay for this with the poor rep the rest of the game has ,not alot is my guess .

Well, I still like Evolution Studios. Can't wait to get Motorstorm for PS4 if it ever gets made!! Still glad I got this racer over Forza Horizon 2 for Xbox One; tbh Evolution's still a gaming leader. The water effects in Motorstorm Pacific Rift were FANTASTIC and the competitivity in Drive Club is also a good development in racers! They could offer the season pass half price (I AM White British after all, I just love a good sale!) for a very limited time, like the last two weeks of November and I'll get it!! Everything hasn't been going well since they've used a Polish guy and not a Brit, for their promotion of their wares. Might be a correlation there; just sayin' :)!
