“What a disaster.”
That’s probably the collective thought crossing the minds of critics, Sony employees, and game enthusiasts everywhere when Driveclub first released on PlayStation 4 last year.
There was a time during its development where Driveclub was pegged as the definitive racing experience and Sony’s Forza killer, however unfair that was at the time. Needless to say, all of this hype and pressure continued to build which probably made the release day meltdown even more terrible. Connectivity issues, missed promises of a free edition, and server troubles plagued the game at launch and into the first month after release turning many fans off from the experience.
It’s now a few months later and the good news is, all of those all nighters and weekend work the team at Evolution Studios put in have paid off. Driveclub is now playable and working as the team and Sony was hoping last year when it released. While the highly sought after PlayStation Plus version of the game is not available yet, it was confirmed earlier this week that it is still coming at some point.
So how does the game hold up these days? Full thoughts await you below the jump…
