DriveClub E3 2013 in-game footage - Team VVV

VVV: "Taken from an early build of the game (and by early, we really do mean early - we're told that this build is only 35% complete), we finally got a chance to capture a brief snippet of gameplay to see how DriveClub is shaping up in a time trial set in what looks like a scenic English environment comparable to Forza Horizon's crisp canyon roads." (Driveclub, E3, PS4)

Each at has a quarter of a million polygons he says. How does that compare to Forza 5 anyone know? I know poly don't count for overall look but I'd like to know the difference.

I liked the dashboard camera later in the video:)

This game looks crap, unfortunately...
I was hoping it would be great considering that these are the developers of motor storm( which I Luv) so I'm a little disappointed right now...
and yes I know its off screen, but even still you can tell whether the game still looks great or not like uncharted 2 and GT5 for example, I seen them for the very first time off-screen and I was very impressed! this game looks crap and I seriously hope it turns out much better by release date.

polygon count is irrelevant just a pretty number because of diminishing returns. if you compare a car with 250,000 polygons and one with 1,500,000 polygons the difference is very marginal (some may not even know the difference!) but if you compare a car with 600 polygons to a car with 1,500 polygons the difference is massive this pic explains it the best http://i.imgur.com/vX8jkHD....

True what you say about poly counts. However, higher numbers of polys do require a significant amount of processing power. While it may not give massive improvements in the look of the car it does show that with those visuals the console is quite capable.

LOL, the 26 Forza 4 Autovista cars had 1,000,000 polygons now every car in Forza 5 has Forzavista so that means every car in Forza 5 has 1,000,000 polygons compared to Drive Club's 250,000 polygons.

Too be honest Drive Club looked last gen in this video and the track looked like it was created in Gran Turismo 5's Track Editor.

Also the physics are a joke. It is an arcade game and does not have the good kind of arcade physics like Forza Horizon had.

Forza5 cars don't have 1mill polys,lol.

As for physics, Forza is an arcade game, i've been to race tracks many times in my life.

Don't get me wrong, Forza is decent looking, except for the lighting, very far behind GT5 in that respect. What with GT6's work on even more life like physics. Tire work etc.

With regards to Driveclub. Evolution is known for big jumps in quality towards release. This is a fact from the motorstorm games.

Forza5 does not even have day/night cycle, no weather. NOw that's last gen.
Elit3Nick  +   779d ago
We haven't seen much regarding all the features forza 5 has, btw why wouldn't it be capable of 1mill polys, forza 4 cars had around half a million, and this is next gen...
brandonb21  +   780d ago
i thought at the ps4 reveale they said you could get out of the car and look around
The_Infected  +   780d ago
So to me Forza 5 is looking better graphically and in physics.

And this was recorded with a CAM

So plz tell me: HOW can you decide that from a CAM?!

Are you from teh future? ..

Ever heard the saying:

The physics gonna magically look better if it wasn't recorded on cam? No.

First off this video is off camera (as the person alludes to and apologizes for it's poor quality for that very reason).

Secondly, Drive Club isn't trying to be a realistic simulation (not that Forza is overly realistic but the best you can get on MS hardware).

DC is more like GRID, PGR style racer. Also don't forget this is a brand new first ever IP. Of course Turn 10 working on their 3rd generation of hardware and 6th game is going to have a slight edge. But you are not even comparing apples to oranges here. This is more like comparing apples to oranges on a tree that just started to sprout. DC is has a ways to go before it's complete and again is a brand new IP.

Why must everything be a direct comparison with the opposition? Especially when the opposition that is being compared is a completely different type of game. I myself am an absolute Forza freak! Check my profile pic. I built my gaming room around Forza. But I don't care if Forza is the second coming it isn't enough for me to play step and fetch with MS and all of their ridiculous restrictions they are implementing on the XBOX ONE to warrant my going against everything I believe to play one title.

I will gladly be content with Drive Club unit Polyphony Digital bring out a version of GT6 for the PS4. And GT6 on the PS3 will suffice my simulation needs until it's built for the PS4.

It's a competition to me because I'm getting a PS4 and I hoped Diveclub would match Forza 5 since it will be the racing game I get but "IMO" it doesn't look as good off screen of coarse and the physics like car bouncing oddly around when you hit a wall arcade or not it looked a bit fake.

This game looks bad. Where GT6? They should have done GT6 for PS4 instead of this garbage.
blackpanther25  +   779d ago
If you want a racing game that matches Forza wait for GT6 on the ps3. This game isn't supposed to be compared with forza (PGR is more of a rival).
Walker  +   779d ago
With pre-baked lighting and no weather effects ?
Swedish_Gr3mlin  +   779d ago
Dont forget: No night racing ^^
darren_poolies  +   779d ago
This build is only 3 complete, what did you expect?

I can't comment graphics, but the gameplay does look boring to me. Yet another arcade racer.
I_am_Batman  +   779d ago
To be fair though Forza is a simulation and DC is not so i would expect Forza to have more realistic physics. But I agree that Forza 5 looked really good as well though I have to say that I didn't really like that drivatar stuff.
thechosenone  +   779d ago
I guess you missed the part where he said the game was still in the development stages. Also Forza is cutting out a lot of features to get those visuals like no real-time weather effects, day/night cycles.
NioRide  +   779d ago
I'm happy that during their first video commentary they released like last week they said it wasn't a sim, because after watching this I can actually take the game seriously as just being about fun.
fooltheman  +   779d ago
I really like the concept op having different challenges on a same track.
And the fact you can make your own challenges. Sounds great between Friends...
Heavenly King  +   779d ago
Looks really good!
Tr10wn  +   779d ago
wow after all my hype about this game i feel very disappointed, it feels arcade-ish and its boring..... what a let down.
porter470  +   779d ago
I have to say the quality of video's coming out of E3 and the stream's of the conferences were bad, you would think they would have had better planning in executing all this

To me both DriveClub and Foza 5 look promising
steven83r  +   779d ago
Played both yesterday and gotta say DriveClub is better IMO. Forza was just a bit colorful and when taking a turn fast and u slam on the breaks it just slides straight into the wall. Driveclub you smash on breaks and it breaks to an extent. Can't do 200 and hit breaks at last minute and expect to stop.
insertnamehurr  +   779d ago
Finally someone who can really judge both games cause you played them in real life, i wont doubt driveclub looks awesome, its a huge open world racing game and still has stunning visuals, not only you but other ppl who recorded it off screen have said it too.
Tatsuya  +   779d ago
Don't forget guys, this is just an Alpha version of it! Can't wait to see and play the final one!

PS4: Greatness Awaits
steven83r  +   779d ago
35% Seriously? I just played it yesterday at E3 and it looked complete to me. Damage and all. Drives really good too. Take a corner too fast and its pretty hard to save. Drifting is really good on it as well. If you go off road onto the grass as you're turning you will lose the backend and sometimes can recover. Pretty cool.

Don't know why people were expecting this to be a new Forza or GT, they said from the start it's an arcade racer. I for one am very excited for the game, i've always wanted a more arcade racer with the deatail and accuracy racing sims hold in their vehicles
