Evolution Talks About What’s Different Between DriveClub PS Plus Edition And The Retail Version
I’ve read some comments where some gamers have accused the free offering of DriveClub to PS Plus members at the PS4’s launch as being a “watered down” version of the game.
Turns out, that may not entirely be true.

Evolution Studios, recently chatting to VideoGamer, spoke a bit about where the free PS Plus edition and the retail version differ. In their eyes, the differences aren’t much.
Senior designer Ben Gouldstone said that it’s basically a “slight” difference in content.
“The only difference between the PS Plus edition and the boxed retail is that there’s a slightly scaled down version of content…
“We haven’t released specific details about what we’re going to refine for the PS Plus Edition yet, but in terms of the gambit of features, you’re going to be able to issue challenges, you’re doing to be able to do asynchronous online races, you’re going to have all of the single player content in terms of events. The specifics we haven’t gone into yet but you’re going to have the full gaming experience.”
Gouldstone claims that the reason the content was cut from the PS Plus Edition was in order to get the downloadable version “immediately into someone’s hands”, instead of for commercial reasons.
It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but cut content is expected to include certain cars and tracks.
“This game is huge,” he continues, “and to have the full scale download as the initial [PS plus] release, it was a conscious decision to make it as slick as possible.”
I hope, true to his word, that it’s as close to the retail version as possible.
