Sony revealed that PlayStation Plus will be available on the PS4 from launch, with one of the first games being the PS Plus Edition of racer DriveClub. The PS Plus version of the game will be the full game in terms of features and mechanics, but will have a scaled-back number of tracks and cars.
According to DriveClub design director Paul Rutchynsky, “What that means is that all the game modes, the single-player experience is all there in the PlayStation Plus version. The only thing that we’re limiting you on is content, and that content is cars and tracks.”
The missing content can be added to the game by purchasing it separately, giving the game a free-to-play model, at least for PS Plus subscribers.
