Evolution report players can expect better online connectivity for DriveClub.
PS4 players frustrated by server issues with DriveClub should have more success at getting online to play the game according to an update from Evolution Studios posted over the weekend, which states “the majority of DRIVECLUB players should now be able to connect.”
“More server updates and upgrades are coming online over the weekend, so while this work continues you may still experience some issues with connectivity but please keep trying,” wrote Evolution. “When you do get connected you can go online, play for your club, use your club cars, play multiplayer races, compete in face-offs, and compare your best times and scores with everyone on the leaderboards. This is in addition to playing in Tour mode, creating your own single events and customizing your cars in your garage (which you can do offline too).
“We will continue to keep you informed as we make progress and we know we’ve said this before but we mean it: We know how frustrating it is when you can’t get connected and we feel it too. We are working flat out to get online sign-in, multiplayer racing and leaderboards running smoothly for everyone, all of the time.”
Since the release of DriveClub last week the game has been suffering from server side problems that eventually led to Evolution operating a one-in, one-out online set-up. The planned free PlayStation Plus version due to launch alongside the full game was also delayed as a result. Several patch updates have been released since to help reduce server load.
