DriveClub Will Support All PS4 Wheels, Studio “Aiming” At 60FPS

In a behind closed doors session with TheSixthAxis last week, Evolution’s Col Rodgers confirmed that the game will support every wheel that works with the PS4. Hopefully that also means that current PS3 wheels will also work just fine, although that’s not 100% guaranteed. (Driveclub, PS4)

yay 60 frames, so that means less judder and input lag! I remember them saying that it was going to be 30 frames and I was so disappointed.

I rather hope that they have finished the game in time for the PS4. I've read somewhere that it's just 35% finished right now. This fact of course has the upside that the game already looks really good, but I also want to play it on launch day.

I think that was just that build. But evolution games don't really come together until a little before launch, just look at the motorstorms.

While I was at E3 in 2006, I saw that many of the launch PS3 games had similar completion percentages (they actually would put a % complete indicator bar under each screen for each game), so I wouldn't worry about that too much. It was common to see a launch title with 35-50% completion.

I hope it will be 60fps

As powerful as the PS4 is supposed to be I'm sure it will be. Forza is.
ANIALATOR136  +   704d ago
Don't forget that the cars are supposed to be the most detailed in a game. Around a million polygons per car and up to 12 cars on a track at a time. I think it could be a challenge for evolution even with the PS4 but it would be great news if they pull it off
dcbronco  +   704d ago
They have to bump up that car total. I've been in situations where we ran a series and there were more racers than slots. Developers need to get it up to twenty at least.

After seeing how much Motorstorm evolved in a very short amount of time, this game has a good chance it will make 60 fps and be much more polished by release.

Can we use ps3 wheels on ps4? They should, since it is usually connected via usb. But will Sony allow it?
HammadTheBeast  +   704d ago
Probably. You can use the same mics from PS3 to 4 so I wouldn't rule it out.
Donnieboi  +   704d ago
Mics? u mean like the turtle beaches?
rainslacker  +   704d ago
I hope they do. I don't have a terribly expensive wheel, but it wasn't cheap either. I'd rather not have to buy a new one because I feel it's good enough for me.

I believe wheel implementation is actually in the software though, not a premade console input API. Guess it would be up to the wheel manufacturers to give the code to handle the inputs for the game, and then for the developer to actually code for those inputs.

Everything about the PS4 just says good news.
Whitey2k  +   704d ago
im sure theres a site stating that products that work with ps3 will work on ps4 like turtle beach headset
MariaHelFutura  +   704d ago
This is great news. I can't play racing games w/o a steering wheel anymore.
Gran Touring  +   704d ago
Well 60 frames is the standard for Racing games in general. I'm sure that Evo. studios is capable of delivering that one PS4.

I really do hope it supports Logitech Wheels though :)

I would think so, i have the driving force gt.

I don't mind 30fps, but would prefer 60fps.
josephayal  +   704d ago
can't wait for this game, I hope they have the ZR1, my favorite car
sigfredod  +   704d ago
They just confirm November for the PS4 release?
teedogg80  +   704d ago
Sure seems like it.
chcolatesnw  +   704d ago
wow the guy says GT6 looks better than DriveClub. In the article it says how he was surpirsed the DC didn't look much like a next gen title, and when he went back to the GT6 booth, he was surprised that GT6 looks better in comparison. Damn I guess no more day 1 buy for me, Ill wait for full review and gameplay.
fooltheman  +   704d ago
Driveclub us only 35 procent finished... that is an important fact, that's also in that preview
insertnamehurr  +   704d ago
Dont listen to that idiot, driveclub looks trillion times better than GT6, gt6 doesnt even have detailed 3D draw distance and other things, he obvs is trying to take away as many ps4 players as he can and bring them to the xboxone, hes just trolling and trying to make ppl believe ps4 games dont look like next gen games, yet, a few guys who came on this website commentin that they played driveclub at e3 and said it even looked better than forza5 so id believe them instead.
irokster  +   704d ago
GT6 looks really good but I think the final Drive Club game will look considerably better.
VonBraunschweigg  +   704d ago
Finally I read about wheelsupport, good news but why can't they just speak about current wheels - will our Driving Force GT or G25/27 wheels work or not?

1080p native is nice, but a racegame needs 60fps, especially next gen. If they can't get in on 60fps I would see that as a failure. It's not that good looking, it's exclusive on PS4 hardware, yet no locked 60 fps a few months for release? C'mon...
Destrania  +   704d ago
Even though it's 35% complete at the moment, with 4-5 months dev time for optimization, etc. I know they will hit their marks. It's freakin' Evolution Studios for God's sake, haha.
insertnamehurr  +   704d ago
35%, 5%, 100% or not this game still looks far better than gt6, whoever this guy is and said gt6 looked better is obvs a MS fan.
Destrania  +   704d ago
I will love and enjoy both. They are relatively different types of racers. Not even on the same platform either, so you can't really compare them. GT6 will push the PS3 to its limits, and DriveClub already is pushing photo-realism on PS4 and it's a freakin' launch title! Incredible. DriveClub has some very interesting and fresh ideas they're bringing as well. Fantastic times ahead for Playstation.

Yay, good news for me because i haven't used my G27 that much and i feel i should use it more, on PS3 i only use it for GT5, Dirt 3 doesn't work great with it.
