Evolution reports that connectivity issues persist during peak times of the day.
Evolution Studios’ DriveClub continues to face server woes even though it’s been two weeks since the game’s launch. The developer recently updated its Facebook page to confirm that most players are online but that connectivity issues persist.
“We can see that the majority of you can now get online, but we know that at peak times of the day it can still be hard to get connected, so we are still working to improve connectivity with every update to the servers.
“We can also see that when you do get connected, some of you are having a hard time getting into multiplayer races and that posting leaderboard results can sometimes take a lot longer than you’d expect.
“These connectivity issues stem from the same unforeseen server problem that we’ve been working to get on top of since we launched DRIVECLUB, and while we are getting on top of the problem now, we are still working round the clock to keep improving gameplay for you. This means there will be regular server updates in the coming days to get all of you connected and enjoying all of DRIVECLUB all of the time.”
Unfortunately, there’s still no news on the PS Plus Edition of the game. “PS Plus Edition news will come as soon as we have concrete info – sorry to keep you all waiting.” The PS Plus Edition was meant to be a free version of the game to allow players to try out the features before deciding whether it was worth investing in.
Though there are plenty of single-player features in DriveClub, the main focus was on the game’s social features which have been more or less defunct. Issues are being resolved according to the developer but what has your experience been with the game thus far? Let us know in the comments.
