Driveclub Servers Update: Traffic Problems For PS4 Exclusive Slowly Ease Off As Friendly Leaderboards Are Introduced, No Word Yet On PS Plus Version
Driveclub, the PlayStation 4's exclusive racing game, has been driving on rough roads since launch, with server woes causing connection problems for excited players. Now, it seems like the developer is slowly getting the situation under control, with a new update confirming improved performance and the addition of friendly leaderboards.
Developer Evolution Studios has been very communicative with its player base as it smooths out the game's server issues, taking to Facebook and Twitter to give daily progress updates. Today's post reassured players that the server situation is improving on their end, adding that players can now see how their racing chops stack up against their friends list with the return of friendly leaderboards.
Though the connection problems are shrinking, the developer realizes that functionality still needs to be added in and that the work is not over just yet.
"After more successful upgrades and updates to the servers today, performance continues to improve and more of you will be able to play online together," the developer's Facebook post reads. "We're still working, and will be around the clock, to keep improving social connectivity and online play, and we are pleased to say we have also added in friendly leaderboards now."
Though the game is slowly getting better for those who bought the game, the abbreviated free version promised to PS Plus members this month is still indefinitely delayed while the server issue is resolved. The developer assures PS Plus members that they will not be forgotten, but for now, that version is on hold.
Driveclub is now available for the PS4.
