With Driveclub VR officially being announced earlier last week after a strange sequence of ‘will they/won’t they’ events, it was revealed as being a standalone title and not an upgrade to the existing game.
Naturally, this beckoned the question of how the original game would be affected, if at all, once the VR-compatible variant made its way out into the wild. Paul Rustchynsky, the original man in charge at now-defunct Evolution Studios, has revealed that there’s still plenty of fun to be had in the original game. All 5 of the new urban locations being added to the newer experience will also be made available to the vanilla game courtesy of a free update.
@Buzz17091991 The new tracks will be added to DRIVECLUB in a free update as a thank you for your continued support.

While no specific time window has been outlined for the release of Driveclub VR, it will be on store shelves before the end of the year. The subsequent update bringing the new tracks to the original game is likely to follow shortly thereafter.
