Evolution Studios has released details on all the updates and free DLC you can expect for DriveClub starting in October.
Although there is a DriveClub Season Pass, developer Evolution Studios is giving you tracks, vehicles and other updates free of charge.
According to Evolution, the October 9 DriveClub release date is only the start, as the game will evolve with each update.
“We are determined to build up a lively community of millions of connected racers around you, so our post-launch development will be influenced by what you do in the game and the feedback you share with us”, said DriveClub Community Manager, Evolution Studios.
One of the first updates you’ll get is the weather system, which Evolution has been teasing for quite some time. Sadly, it won’t be part of the game at launch though.
“We’re already working hard to develop free updates that will introduce a powerful weather system (that you can play around with to change the dynamics of every race) and a photo mode, because they’ve both been requested ever since we first showed how you can control the time of day and skies in the game.”
You’ll get free tracks for the first couple of months, with the game starting off with 55 routes over 25 tracks. Evolution will also treat you to one free car a month as a free series running from October 2014 to June 2015.
Evolution Studios even went as far as to offer the above calendar of DriveClub DLC releases. These can be purchased separately or are included as part of the game’s Season Pass.
The Season Pass is €24.99 (UK pricing not confirmed) and lets you pre-order all the DLC packs ahead of their release. If you were to purchase all the content separately, the total value would be €75.84 via the PlayStation Store.
For those looking to get the PlayStation Plus version of DriveClub, you won’t get access to all that free content though.
“PlayStation Plus Edition owners will be able to get free tracks for India (the featured location) and exciting new game features such as weather,” said DriveClub Game Director Paul Rustchynsky.
The PlayStation Plus edition can be upgraded to the full version for £42.99, which will offer access to all the game’s 5 locations, 55 tracks, 50 cars and 50 tour events.
