Driveclub: “Majority” of Players Able to Connect, More Servers Next Week; Leaderboards Investigated

on October 18, 2014 4:09 PM

Driveclub‘s developer Evolution Studios is still working hard on the game’s servers, trying to hammer everything into working conditions. They’re also continuing to keep us updated via Facebook and Twitter.

We learn that according to the studio the “majority” of players are finally able to connect with the servers.

We’re still improving server performance to get all of you enjoying full online connectivity together, but the majority of DRIVECLUB players should now be able to connect and play online.

I just tried to connect myself, and it definitely happened quickly and without a hitch, but of course there’s more work to be done, as challenges are still not active. In fact Evolution promised the installation of new servers and new server upgrades not only during the weekend, but also next week.

More servers, upgrades & updates are coming online tomorrow & next week. Keep trying.

With more server updates & upgrades we will be able bring challenges back online for everybody. Will announce when that happens.

Something a little less positive is also happening, with leaderboards showing impossibly low times, causing complaints between users. Evolution promised to investigate the problem.

Hopefully a solution will come soon. Personally, I can’t wait to see challenges back online, as they’re definitely a lot of fun. They’re also a big help in leveling up past level 30, when things start to get a bit more grindy.
