PS Plus version of Driveclub delayed to prevent server issues

driveclub max res

Driveclub, the much anticipated and much delayed next-gen racing game, is experiencing another delay in the form of the PlayStation Plus downloadable version.  Since the retail launch of the PlayStation exclusive title from Evolution Studios, there have been server and connectivity issues.

Paul Rustchynsky, the Game Director for Driveclub, apologized via a Facebook post which also announced the delay of the free PlayStation Plus version.  A new launch date for the free PS Plus version of Driveclub has yet to be announced.  Evolution Studios is waiting until it feels comfortable with the performance of the server.

This delay also affects the companion app that was released and since pulled on Android and iOS, but not the full digital version of Driveclub.

It’s October and it’s time for free games on PlayStation Plus

Fall is in the air. The leaves are changing, the nights are getting cooler, and it is time yet again to cash in on free games via PlayStation Plus! And the best part as that we are getting a crack at THREE games this month as opposed to the normal two games offered each month!

PS4 owners will get to enjoy the Metroidvania Dust: An Elysian Tail, arcade game Pix the Cat, and the platformer Spelunky, all of which are debuting this month. Pix the Cat is also available on the PS Vita and Spelunky is also available on PS3 and Vita. As a bonus this month, PS4 owners can grab the DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition, which offers both online and offline access to 11 tracks of India and 10 cars for your garage.

PS3 owners get to play the awesome Batman: Arkham Asylum, RPG Rainbow Moon, and the recent Dungeons & Dragons rerelease of Chronicles of Mystara. PS Vita owners get a free copy of Rainbow Moon as well.

So be ready to start downloading October 7th. For more information, be sure to head over to the PlayStation Blog @ blog.us.playstation.com.

PlayStation Plus August free games include Fez, Crysis 3

It is soon to be a new month, and as most PlayStation Plus users know, a new month equals new free games. The August slate offers, like always, two new games per Sony console.

PS4 users will get to play Fez and Road Not Taken, two puzzle style games with refreshing ideas. PS3 users will be able to snag Crysis 3 and Proteus, giving you a good mix of first-person shooter and a casual explorer. Lastly, Vita owners will be able to download Metrico and Dragon’s Crown (too bad we couldn’t get this on the PS3 as well for some sweet cross-platform play).

These will be available for download on August 5th for PlayStation Plus subscribers. With the recent news that Xbox One users are gaining the EA Access program, there has become much more incentive for players to join up on PlayStation Plus to get their monthly member game fix.

Or wait for the PlayStation Now service coming very soon…
