Newsbrief: Sony has been forced to hold back digital copies of Driveclub from its PlayStation Plus users, after the game's servers buckled after launch yesterday.

The long-awaited PlayStation 4 driving game was meant to receive a free version for PS Plus users at launch, but Evolution Studios director Paul Rustchynsky admitted that the studio is "temporarily holding back" this version due to server stress.

"We are seeing a lot of activity and new social behaviours right now, but unfortunately this is pushing the servers to their absolute limits," he explained in a Facebook post, as spotted by Eurogamer.

Rustchynsky didn't state when the PS Plus version will be available. The Driveclub app has also been held back for now, to help with the load.
