Paul Rustchynsky, Alex Perkins and Col Rodgers of Evolution Studios discussed some key aspects of the PS4 launch title DriveClub, including the differences found in the PS Plus version.
Drive Club will launch alongside the PS4 at retail, as both a digital download and as a PS Plus version free to PS Plus subscribers. During a Q&A with PlayStationer, Evolution Studios explained the differences found in the PS Plus version.
"It may be missing a few assets such as cars or tracks, that will be found in the full version," says the team. "However the online multiplayer, the asynchronous challenges and the single player campaign will all be present in the PS Plus version."
The team explains that Drive Club is all about socialising, and "the PS Plus version gives us to the biggest open community, day one."
The PS Plus version may be missing some tracks and cars, but the team says "you can buy any/all of the content that you want. You could download the PS Plus version and then decide that you want to convert this to the full digital version, then you can pay a sum of money and everything else will be delivered to you."
During the Q&A other topics were discussed, including the fact that while the focus is not on damage - Evolution Studios says they are "not making Burnout" - the cars will nonetheless take damage and physically deform.
The effects of weather were touched on, though the team had nothing to divulge. The game will, however, continue to evolve long after its release. The team said, "we're keeping the development architecture of the tracks etc very much open. We're not closing off anything just yet."
