Weather effects may be patched into DriveClub post release

The game you are playing a year down the line will have evolved a lot, says Evolution. (Driveclub, PS4)

I don't like this. Releasing incomplete games to then patch them up through software updates is not a good practice.

Did you read the article?

The interview that they had with the DriveClub designer said nothing about patches releasing, the website is just making that assumption

"This is actually a question that comes up quite a bit," said Evolution in an interview featuring Paul Rustchynsky, Alex Perkins and Col Rodgers. "Obviously, what we're currently focussed on is getting the game perfect and building a community around it first, but if there is a call for weather effects, nothing is currently off the cards at this point."

"DriveClub may not launch with weather effects, ****but this doesn't mean such a feature won't be added to the title post release, Evolution told Playstationer.net at E3 last month****"

As you can see above the author is just putting words into Evolutions mouths, they didn't say anything about this happening, flamebait IMO

Exactly how is that different from patching?
iGAM3R-VIII  +   572d ago
@above They didn't even say anything about patching so the title should say may not will because they didnt state anything official. They can also put it in before the game releases, we dont know and nothing is official so idk what you are on about

What? What do you think adding post release is called?
sarcastoid  +   572d ago
This is a game that will be evolving over time. More like a racing MMO than a standalone racing title.
Me-Time  +   572d ago
First of all, iGAM3R-VIII, you're wrong. Anything added post-release whether it's something simple to fix a minor bug or alter something is a patch or an update. Secondly, wishingW3L, pipe down. It's not like they're holding features or content back so that they can "sell" it to us for free.

Did I say anything about patches. no eread my comment, I said they didn't say that this feature would be in the game after release so we don't know

Could be like expansions for PC games. Plenty of games have free updates.
HammadTheBeast  +   571d ago
Just pointing out, GT5 had night tracks patched in, those worked out great.

Shame on you, Evolution. :/

How can you claim that what is said in that quote is different from patching weather in later?
iGAM3R-VIII  +   572d ago

Rush written all over it.
MysticStrummer  +   572d ago
Well I would have been upgrading quickly if I liked the game enough but I guess I'll be playing the PS+ version until they finish the game.
Rusty515  +   572d ago
Guess I'll just buy the game a year down the "road". Unless it "turns" out differently, I'm not "racing" to game"stop" to buy it. If you get my "drift".

I'm not liking this game atm.
GodGinrai  +   572d ago
To be fair its a free game. and they can update it. What matters is that it proves itself to be a good game first. Its a new Ip and we dont know what the cars are like to drive yet so, I will reserve judgement. I dont know enough about this game at the moment, but the fact that it is free to download means ill get to make up my own mind soon enough.
