While we posted about about last year, racing fans on the PS4 might want a reminder that one of the console’s exclusive racing games, Driveclub, is being taken off the pavement permanently starting tomorrow. Yes, after March 31, 2020, the Driveclub servers will be no more.
Here’s the exact list of things players can still do and can’t do once the servers are offline (via the official site):
PS4/PlayStation VR – DRIVECLUB, DRIVECLUB VR and DRIVECLUB Bikes
Online servers for DRIVECLUB, DRIVECLUB VR and DRIVECLUB Bikes will shut down on 31st March 2020, 23:59 BST. All online features (including online multiplayer modes) will cease on that date. You will still be able to play and enjoy these games in single player offline modes. However, the games have significant amounts of online gameplay, so from 31st March 2020, functionality will be affected in the following ways:
You will not be able to:
- Use your season pass online.
- Represent your Club online in multiplayer events or tours.
- Play online multiplayer and compete in challenges.
- Create your own events.
- Compete in leader boards, or share stats and player progress.
You will be able to:
Use your season pass on all single player and offline modes.
Continue to play all game (DC, DC VR and DC Bikes) and DLC single player functionality in offline mode.
Earn trophies in single player / offline mode.
Released way back in 2014, Driveclub was from the now-defunct Evolution Studios, and was released exclusively on the PS4.
For those who are fans of Driveclub, you might want to race and compete again online just for old time’s sake.
