Good news, some of you! Evolution Studios has announced that a patch is on its way to alleviate some of the server woes that have plagued DriveClub since launch. The patch was announced late last night and scheduled to go live within the next 24 hours. It might even be available right now.
Alongside the game update, Evolution is upgrading servers to deal with the higher demand. They caution that they’ll be running diagnostic tests that may disrupt the online portions of the game for those who have managed to connect.
“We’re glad that more of you are getting to play online,” the update reads, “but we are sorry that many players are still having a hard time getting connected. We are working around the clock to improve connectivity and will keep you informed as we continue to make progress.”
There is still no further news regarding the free portion of DriveClub that was supposed to form part of the October content for PlayStation Plus subscribers. We’ll keep an eye on things and let you know as soon as we’ve learnt more.
UPDATE: Evolution Studios has manged to get the online portions of DriveClub to behave. In a new Facebook post, the team states that “the majority of DRIVECLUB players should now be able to connect and play online.” However, further updates and patches may make for some unstable servers as things are launched. Still no word on the PlayStation Plus version.
