“This decision also affects PlayStation Plus members‘ Instant Game Collection for launch. To be clear, DRIVECLUB
PlayStation Plus Edition will still be part of the Instant Game Collection when it is released. For the PS4 launch, in addition to Resogun
, I’m pleased to announce that Contrast
, the highly anticipated game from Compulsion Games will also be available to PlayStation Plus members for free as part of Instant Game Collection.
“We understand that the delay is disappointing news, but can assure you that the reason we have made this decision is to ensure that when DRIVECLUB
