"Majority" of DriveClub owners can now connect online

Still no word on the PlayStation Plus version.

The majority of DriveClub owners should now be able to connect their copy of the game online, developer Evolution Studios has said.

DriveClub's servers have been hampered by connection issues since the game's launch almost two weeks ago.

Many users have been left playing offline, only able to connect when another player leaves and frees up a server space.

"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," a new message on the game's Facebook has reassured.

"More server updates and upgrades are coming online over the weekend, so while this work continues you may still experience some issues with connectivity but please keep trying."

Anyone who does connect will be able to race in multiplayer, compete in face-offs, play for their club and use club cars plus view online leaderboards.

Evolution concluded by promising it would continue to work until all players are connected. There was no new word on the game's free PlayStation Plus Edition, however - delayed indefinitely so server spaces are reserved for those who have bought the game's full version.

"We will continue to keep you informed as we make progress and we know we've said this before but we mean it: We know how frustrating it is when you can't get connected and we feel it too. We are working flat out to get online sign-in, multiplayer racing and leaderboards running smoothly for everyone, all of the time.

"We can't thank you enough for your messages of support and feedback during the past week, so please keep talking to us and sharing your thoughts about the game while you play."
