Evolution Studios, the games developer that has been working frantically to solve the server problems that has marred the release of Driveclub, says the free version of the game will be available as soon as possible.

Prior to the release of the PlayStation 4 racing game, Evolution and Sony had agreed to release a free abridged version of the game to PS Plus subscribers. However, due to major server problems affecting the game, coupled with the likelihood that a surge of new players would make matters worse, Sony decided to postpone the PS Plus edition.

But on Monday Evolution Studios claimed it had begun to gain ground in restoring full online services for the racing title, and four days later it has released another update (1.04) which it hopes will bolster online stability even further.

“More servers and new upgrades are still coming online hour-by-hour, so we expect improvements to server connectivity and reliability for everyone,” the studio wrote on its Facebook page.

“Essential diagnostics are still running periodically (for the next 12 hours) to help us continue to improve server performance,” it added.

“We are still also working hard to get the PS Plus Edition of Driveclub out as soon as possible and hope to update you on this soon.”

The studio has apologised on several occasions for the downtime, and hasn’t ruled out compensating those affected by the problems.
