Say what you want about this game, but it has the best weather/rain effects I've ever seen in a racer. The attention to detail is excellent IMO
Those few DLCs have been free for nearly 4 years!
If I remember correctly, am sure Sony said that the drive club server is closing.
So they'll be no more multiplayer racing

100% true, I've never seen better, the lightening is stunning.

I think this was my first platinum game, this and wipeout were my most played games before battle royale games became a thing.

I’ll probably never download and play DriveClub again but added all the free DLC anyway. Thanks!

No free bikes dlc then yet, shame this was made a big deal I even Preorder a broken game as if that happens nowdays
bought driveclub years ago for a tenner at a car boot sale, not sure it was worth that seeing how much i played it
The server isn't closing until March 2020
Thanks O.P

I must be rare then as I've played ot till the end and the bikes expansion.

It's also pretty amazing in VR
This is a very decent arcade racer and bikes was very good too.

So what's the free dlc? You make it look like it's the bikes?

It is a bike. I think a lot has been free for a while, but possibly added more? Not much info in this post..

Agreed, I spent many an hour trying to beat times on the leaderboard with the Koenigsegg One and Hennessey Venom.

The dynamic weather patch was a game changer when it came out, for all its problems launching you can’t knock the developers for their dedication in making it an incredible game.
I think it’s the one thing PS4 has missed this generation was a top notch racer hopefully the ps5 will put that right.

It's a good deal I think. How many ps4 games do people play for a year after purchase? I can only think of one for me (The Division), all others I play for a few months and then move on.

That Venom was a beast, I spent ages trying the one challenge but kept spinning out. I did manage it thankfully before I smashed my controller tho

Nothing free added this year from what I can see. I got this sometime last year and downloaded all the freebies, can't see anything free I can add to my account
After playing GT Sport in 60fps, going back to Driveclub was painful. Much as I do appreciate the lovely weather effects. They came at too great a cost, 30fps is just not really enough for a driving game.

I find modern GT / Forza games boring as hell. It may have only been 30fps but the sense of speed is so much better imo. Each their own though.
So much DLC on this game

Agreed. Gutted that they never got time to do a proper Pro patch as 4K, HDR and improved frame rate all could have benefited this game
Was so disappointed with this game. The online features and, as mentioned before, the excellent weather effects are great, but after March next year this game will effectively be finished. It does feel noticeably 'not smooth' even on the Pro. Ah well.

DriveClub still has the best weather and rain effects in a racing game even today (Forza 7 tried with it's vastly hyped up rain effects in reveals but didn't even come close), and likely would not be beaten until the PS5 comes along. DriveClub also has the best sounding cars in any racing game (Evolution Studios were dedicated enough to go to the manufacturers and do extensive sound tests, and even received official sound files from the manufacturers themselves for each car to use in game), and the car models and interiors are fantastic with so much detail.

True, but 30fps.

I'm a huge admirer of the technical work that went into Driveclub. But ultimately, it was to the detriment of the game as a whole.

Easy to say as captain hindsight, though. And it was a banging game - a launch title! Which got massively better over time.

But the lesson for me is, 60fps or bust, when you're making a realistic driving sim. Forget the glorious windscreen droplets - and they were glorious indeed. The game simply has to run fast, that's the bottom line.
Driveclub bikes still looks better than the yearly crap Milestone pump out.
Thanks! Heat added

Despite 30fps, DriveClub nailed the sense of speed when driving at high speeds compared to most other racers even today (I would say Assetto Corsa is better but only after modifying the FOV and camera angles). Another surprising thing with DriveClub was how well it worked with Remote Play, my broadband speeds are fast but not well equipped with handling Remote Play (due to other users in the house regularly taking up bandwidth with downloads and streaming), but DriveClub for me was one of the few games that worked brilliantly with Remote Play (other games I experienced which worked very well with Remote Play are the Last of Us Remastered, Pro Evolution Soccer 2016/17/18 and Ratchet and Clank).

At the time of typing this, DriveClub only has a 0.5% Platinum achievement rate despite it not being a hard Platinum at all. You will likely have to grind for trophies (pick out certain racetracks and cars to build up the accolades etc) and do some trickery like making random PSN accounts linked to your main PSN account for some trophies, but the Platinum took me just 50 hours to achieve.
