The PlayStation Plus version of DriveClub will not include as much content as the full retail game, Evolution Studios has confirmed to VideoGamer.com.

Discussing the differences between the PS Plus Edition of DriveClub, which PlayStation Plus members will be able to download for free at the launch of PS4, and the retail version, senior designer Ben Gouldstone said:

"The only difference between the PS Plus edition and the boxed retail is that there's a slightly scaled down version of content...

"We haven't released specific details about what we're going to refine for the PS Plus Edition yet, but in terms of the gambit of features, you're going to be able to issue challenges, you're doing to be able to do asynchronous online races, you're going to have all of the single player content in terms of events. The specifics we haven't gone into yet but you're going to have the full gaming experience."

Gouldstone claims that content was cut from the PS Plus Edition in order to get the downloadable version "immediately into someone's hands", rather than for commercial reasons. Cut content is expected - although not confirmed - to include certain cars and tracks.

"This game is huge," he continues, "and to have the full scale download as the initial [PS plus] release, it was a conscious decision to make it as slick as possible."

its a great idea to give it out free most people will buy PS+ just for the game but most likely some will buy the console PS+ Driveclub at retail.

"And then you can buy the cut content. Ahahahahah!"

But no, if they give Hitman Absolution - a game that is 17-19GB away through PS+ then I'm sure they can give this away. I mean, how much is the retail edition going to cost? Perhaps just vie players the choice to download PS+ edition and then download the cut content separately.

Yeah I guess so, but didn't they also say something about letting you play it (up to a point) while it downloads? If that's the case it would be fine as I image only late-game content has been removed.

Can't pre download if you've only just brought it back from shop though!

Hmm, I thought the PS4 had that system wherein it pre-downloaded games for you...
