Driveclub: You Can Still Get Platinum Trophy with PS Plus Edition; Upgrade Price to be Announced Soon

on May 4, 2014 9:57 AM

The fact that the PlayStation Plus Edition of Driveclub won’t allow you to complete the single player Tour mode made many wonder Sony Computer Entertainment walked back on its promise made last year of allowing players to earn the platinum trophy without purchasing the full version.

Luckily Game Director Paul “Rushy” Rustchynsky took to NeoGAF to clarify that it’ll still be possible to platinum the game without spending a dollar.

And you still can. Nothing has changed.

Talking about spending, the option to upgrade the free PlayStation plus version to the full version will be still made available, and the price will be announced soon, as Rustchynsky confirmed on Twitter.

As we already knew, the PlayStation Plus version of the game will give access to a single country,  which includes five tracks with eleven variants and ten cars. Apparently that will be enough to get the coveted platinum trophy, and completing the Tour mode won’t be necessary.

For the moment only five countries (Scotland, Norway, Canada, Chile and India) have been officially announced, but we don’t know if there will be more in the final game. We also don’t know which one will be included in the PlayStation Plus edition.

The full car list still hasn’t been disclosed (even if the latest trailer included 18 different rides), and interrogated on whether the game will include any Japanese cars Rustchynsky declined to respond, mentioning that he can’t disclose the rest of the car list yet.
