The design director of PS4 racer Driveclub has stated that the game will not offer microtransactions.
Evolution Studios’ Paul Rustchynsky tweeted a link to CVG’s review of Trials Frontier which labels the game a “microtransaction monstrosity”, adding that: “Even Trials has been infected by this plague.”
When asked by another Twitter user if Driveclub would be free of IAPs, Rustchynsky replied “absolutely”.
A free version of Driveclub was at one stage at least planned to be made available for PlayStation plus subscribers. However, with changes at Evolution, a rumoured design re-think and a release date that’s still up in the air, who knows whether those plans still stand.
