Was DriveClub's PS4 reveal trailer actual gameplay running on the PS4?

This is an interesting question that was brought up by NeoGaf member, Sid, regarding the current state of DriveClub, the PS4 racing exclusive. At the PlayStation 4 reveal, Sony first showcased DriveClub, with a breathtaking realistic gameplay trailer…but how much of that was actually real and on PS4 hardware? (Driveclub, PS4)

doubt it. It looked super amazing before while actual game footage looks like a current gen game.

And this http://i.minus.com/iW6uXHIG... supposed to be better than Forza? with half of Forza's framerate?
slimeybrainboy  +   741d ago | Well said
"supposed to be better than Forza?" Is that the tagline for driveclub? it's going to be free, and fun and people will play with their friends, who cares? People act like they play Forza religously when in reality theres like a small community of hardcores and some people just jump in every now and then, that's how the driving games work.

Off screen, 30FPS design choice, dynamic lighting vs pre-baked lighting, dynamic weather vs no weather, dynamic time of day vs no time of day. and the Forza trademark blurfilter(TM) to ease the rendering burden.

@ Noctis

I wouldn't count on GT7, due to R&D it'll take the PS4's complete life cycle and perhaps longer for them to complete it.

No, the trailer is a lot better than the actual build, but I'm sure the Evo's guys will deliver the same quality of the trailer.

Oh really? Lets see all the gameplay videos of Drive Club
hopefully while your gathering all of the videos you notice that they are all off screen.Then hopefully you will ask your self. Hmm would a game recorded off screen show as much detail as a trailer?

Everything ive seen so far looks tons better than current gen and I welcome any comparisons.People saying it look like current gen, it would be nice of you to do some comparisons, instead of just blowing smoke.Because im quite curious as to which current gen racer looks as good as Drive club.

its a racing game, i dont care about dynamic lighting. 60fps is more important. most console players have never seen 60fps so thats why they dont care
WarThunder  +   741d ago | Well said

-Driveclub has dynamic lighting that changes with the time of day and real shadows, Forza 5 has stationary lighting and baked in shadows.

-Driveclub has randomly generated clouds that cast shadows when passed in front of the sun, Forza 5's clouds are painted on to the skybox.

-Driveclub has large expansive terrains.

-Driveclub has realistic reflection on the cars. Everything in Forza 5 looks laminated.

With all these features that DriveClub has. 30 FPS is normal.

Im not bashing any game. This is just the truth.

I don't even know why people started comparing Driveclub with Forza. I've never played a Forza game but from what I understand it's supposed to be a sim racer. Driveclub is an arcade racer focused on online community and features and it looks fun.

I'm pretty sure they are hard at work on the next MOTORSTORM and I want it now! That would be two arcade racers from this developers which is a good thing.

All in all, three racing games exclusive to Playstation, two arcade racers with a different experience/focus, and a sim racer, the one and only Gran Turismo.

@Muffins1223 You realize this is also a retail game, right? And it will have DLC, of course, but that's been a huge part of both 360 & PS3. To imply what it is you're implying lets me know not to think too much of the fact that you're actually onboard MS's DRM plan.

Stating the obvious again. Glad there are people with brains in here, so I don't need to repeat myself. But Forza has nothing on this game. I mean seriously, looks like some people have impaired vision. You shouldn't be driving.

What if they push this to 60fps? Would you then shut up, actually? Because what'll be the excuse then? 10% of the feature and can't even beat it in framerate? Because right now, that's all it got.

But maybe that's why. DriveClub being the new comer and even having this discussion must be a shock for some.

Doesn't even matter, does it? XBoners will play Forza and the 4s the DC.

What's with this now? Like, ever since a few flashes if good news for Xbox One, is it just me or are Xbox Fanboys randomly popping up all over the PS4 news' now just to troll and talk shit and flamebait?

I honestly liked it when the Xbox-variant of fanboy were quieter and less obnoxious -_- Good on X1 for trying to be a better console and all, but the good news is bloating the small egos that define the lowly fanboys everywhere.

We get it forza is very good now could you leave drive club's articles alone please

DC is not a sim racer so compare forza to GT

GT5 sold 10 plus million very close to 11 million
GT5:P a demo sold 5 million

That's one game selling more than the whole series how about some of you actually buy Forza and play it instead of trolling? We GT fans buy it and t shows you forza fans talk about how great it is yet no sales

Drive club will get a huge sals boost because part of it is free on PSN:plus meaning many will try it and if they like it than they will buy it

60 FPS lol

Yeh we still waiting for forza to get

Day and night cycle
Dynamic weather
Dynamic lighting

Yeh forza is so much better

Day of forza release

Hey mike I am going to GameStop

The_Con-Sept  +   741d ago
Why the f are you constantly comparing drive club to forza?

Drive Club is about racing with friends. Forza is about trying to mimic Gran Turismo.

Are you scared that Drive Club is going to be more FUN than forza? What happened to PGR? Why aren't you talking about any other racer than Forza when it comes to Drive Club?

Gran Turismo has a very strong fan base of 5 million. Forza only has 3 million at best with a decline of about 200,000 per title.

Gran Turismo lasts about 5 years when Forza lasts about a year between titles. How many times are you going to buy those stupid premium cars over and over again?

I can't wait to get Drive Club in my hands and play it just to p you off!

When someone copy and pastes your comment and gets more agrees than you did...
IanVanCheese  +   741d ago
I've played Driveclub and I can tell you that it look's good, but it could certainly look that good on current gen.

It's certainly no Forza beater, but it's a decent racing game in it's own right. Just don't use the 6th axis to steer, you will regret it lol.

IanVanCheese  +   741d ago
Lol at the disagrees, what could they possibly be disagreeing with?

Played the game at Sony's Summer Showcase in London, along with Knack (which is pretty sweet). It's pretty but hardly makes you go "wow omg the next gen is here", it's just standard racing game pretty.

Anyway yeah it supports sixth axis but it's damn hard to drive with it, cornering becomes easier but going in a straight line becomes a lot harder lol.

game companies seem to be doing things they think everyone wants, but they don't listen to the fans, and just flat out ignore them.

Its ridiculous.

One is directly captured footage (likely in some sort of buffering replay mode) and another expample is a 720p over the shoulder shaky cam version. I'm sure there are differences but you can't use these examples. we need gameplay directly recorded.

No, even non-direct feed game-play of forza 5 looks better than the same footage of Drive Club.

But this article raises good questions because visually, the trailer they showed looked stunning but the actual game wasn't looking to great. If you would expand your thinking you might explore the possibility of DRIVE CLUBS trailer being replay footage and not Forza's.
IRetrouk  +   741d ago
Good points, but lets all remember it is a very early demo that we keep seeing and probably is only going into final polishing now, i think everyone needs to take a chill pill and wait untill they show a near final build, you cant really judge a game based on a 35% build.

Yes, like the point of racing games is to indeed race, but you gotta show me more.

I feel like Drive Club is literally saying, heres some cars, and you race em. Yay!

When a Need for Speed or Forza trailer hits, its shows me whats special about that series. With Forza its the graphics and insanely fast cars mixed with its crazy customization. Need for Speed is about over the top blazing fast game play.

I need to know the reason why I should get Drive Club, and I feel like there isn't one.

I will get a PS4 and play online, so I will get DriveClub for free and give it a try. It's only a few months for release and I don't expect Evolution to be able to give this game the graphical update we want to see.

It just doesn't look good for this game. Supposedly supereasy superhardware to develop for, a 1st party studio with a lot of experience with racinggames...flat textures, pop-in, no smooth 60 fps, and boring gameplay from what I've seen so far.

Delay it please untill it's up to standard, and I'm afraid Forza will set the standard next gen. Sure GT for PS4 will blow everything away and then some, but how long will we have to wait for that now that GT6 is made for PS3.

But it's free. Guess the reasons for that are not so positive. DriveClub just isn't going to be a big racetitle by the looks of it for now.
Ju  +   741d ago
Stealth trolling much? F2P - not "free". You get a glimpse with PS+, but it's a full retail game - core experience is there. You can buy tracks if you choose so, or buy the full game. The "free" version will have less content. And please, get your eyes checked.
VonBraunschweigg  +   741d ago
Eyes are fine, game doesn't look good atm. I know the PS+ version is not the same as the retailversion, what are you trying to explain?

If you disagree just say so, don't accuse me of stealthtrolling, that doesn't make any sense.
Ju  +   740d ago
It's the exact same version for PS+. The payment model is different which means you buy chunks of the game using micro transactions. Saying "but it's free" put the spin on quality, which is not true, or please explain how I should understand "Guess the reasons for that are not so positive" in the same context? It's a full title which basically comes with a "demo" mode.

And, yes, get your eyes checked. Seriously. People are having troubles recognizing "reality" it seems. It isn't a perfect world and DriveClub actually tries to simulate this. You people take some time looking at the details instead of judging a "rainy day" vs. "but my cars aren't shiny enough". Because that's what "doesn't look as good" means in all those comments I've seen this coming up. Pavement isn't "reflective" enough (guess what, road's usually aren't mirrors) and neither are cars - except after a car wash and putting wax on.
elhebbo16  +   741d ago
One things for sure Driveclub is fully dynamic, you can change the time and weather to whatever you want. on the other hand Forza 5 has static maps, so they could focus all there time on other graphical improvements.

Im not gonna complain, since Driveclub is FREE day 1 (for PS plus users ofc).
theWB27  +   741d ago
Not an excuse...for the exchange of static maps Forza also has hundreds of cars to detail and at a higher fidelity than Driveclub. For the supposedly superior PS4 hardware Driveclub should be hitting these benchmarks..1080p 60fps.

Not to mention Driveclub isn't calculating the same amount of simulation physics as Forza.

The fact that it's closer to Grid and not aiming for the simulation Forza and GT emulates lets me, or anyone, know that it doesn't calculate as much as the other simulators out there. It's striking a balance...it won't be full on arcade like Burnout.

If that's the most you can point out, objects in the rearview mirror disappearing, and the game runs 1080p60fps locked with months to go for release. I guess I'll take that.

Want to describe Driveclub? 1080p30fps with less cars, less simulation, lower visual fidelity. I guess you haven't been hearing, basically all of the media, state how Driveclub doesn't look ext gen. With pop-in in the environment and within the crowd of people.

Ok...here's a link to it having less.

If you think more work goes into a grungy band playing at the local pub than a 106 piece orchestra then..idk. Driveclub is pick up and play.

Your answer to the cars.

They have just about every MAJOR car manufacturer out there...(Grid and Shift did too) including all of the super machines you'd expect as well as a range of lower end models. You know who else took this approach to cars...PGR when it released. They give you a few lower end cars to start off with before you get to the good stuff.

I know you'll find a way to act as though nothing was shown. But there's a difference when Forza devs tell us we'll have hundreds of cars and we know from history they go anywhere from a Delorean up into the Bugatti range.

And that Forzavista video being fake..I guess you didn't see what they were able to do on the 360 with this mode.

Provide a link to anyone saying the videos I provided you were fake. Talking out of your a$$ doesn't help. Links or gtfo...

Links to Driveclub lack of visual fidelity




(This last link is just to show what they're aiming for. More effort into clouds than fps and better visual fidelity. But I thought the PS4 wouldn't have to worry about sacrifice.)

theWB27  +   741d ago
I'm sure if you knew what you were talking about you'd know the difference between the two. The vista on 360, wasn't in game models. They were enhanced versions of the cars. As Turn 10 has already stated, every car in the game on the X1 now have a vista mode since they are in game models.

No night, no weather...how many sim racers on console offer that? GT5 did on a handful of tracks. It isn't an industry standard, so not including isn't as if every racer is and only Forza isn't. But just for giggles, I'll concede that since that's about the only thing people like to level at Forza constantly.

They removed the storefront and auction house but guess what??? They still allow you to buy tuning options and liveries.


The difference is they're free in-game and the provider gets money based on usage from Turn 10. The "store" is gone, but the ability is still there.

I'm still waiting on the link that it was fake! That's all Im asking for. Now that I've told you the difference between Forza 4 and 5 vista modes, we still have the ability to buy liveries and tune settings. I conceded the silly weather argument as if every racer has it...I just want the link. But you keep scooting away from that.

I provided links to back what I was stating. Do you really need a link to know that if a game isn't calculating real world physics then it couldn't be calculating more than a game that is. I'd bet the farm that GT5 has more going on than Driveclub, not to mention 6. GT5 was 1080p(not native)60fps as a simulator.

Links to whats going with Forza...



That's the best I could come up with for their physics since they don't talk about it. They'd rather talk about how you can make the sky look exactly how you want to.

I've provided all the evidence you need. I just want a link to it being fake..not comparing Forza 4 and 5's vista modes that you apparently know little about.
Ju  +   741d ago
"Lower quality" stating the man (child?) linking to 2 videos showing non-game cues on a single car without draw distance (in a single room) as representative of visual fidelity over an open level using a global illumination lighting system (did you actually know - "global illumination" means lighting - wasn't sure, so I thought I'd mention it).

But yeah, it runs 60fps (well, which in fact looks nothing like those "cues"). Strangely, huh?

On the other hand, makes me wonder why an Xboner who prefers Forza worries so much about Drive Club, and PS4 exclusive game.

sony has 3 very un impressive launch titles...driveclub, knack, and killzone..thank god for 3rd party games..watchdogs and assassins will sell a hell of a lot better then sonys own titles.
SuperLupe  +   741d ago
Nah man, Killzone looks alright. But Knack and Driveclub ... eish I'm surprised that's their launch lineup with all the big boy talk they ahve been doing. Pretty surprising they couldnt come up with better.

None of them scream must have. At least KZ got the graphics but damn when are they going to learn to make it actually look fun to play ?
Deltaguy  +   741d ago
Yea, killzone gameplay was mad boring...i have a lot of faith in sony game wise, i know they will bring titles that will outshine xbox ones catalog in the end..but the launch games are horrible imo
DigitalRaptor  +   741d ago
"At least KZ got the graphics but damn when are they going to learn to make it actually look fun to play"

Why would they make it LOOK fun, when the Killzone games ARE fun to play for those who appreciate the games for their merits, not how they are compared against other games?

Unless you're one of those that thinks their opinion is fact, all of this holds true.
SpitFireAce85  +   741d ago
Driveclub should be compared to games like need for speed,PGR if that comes out for the xbone..

Come release I bet all neigh sayers will be silenced....
And then a year later it will be even better due to updates.

doesn't 35% complete mean anything?
4logpc  +   741d ago
Yea that is not gonna be ready for Launch.

The game looks the same from its debut in February.
SoapShoes  +   741d ago
35% complete is the build from E3, they never said they haven't moved on. It takes a lot of effort/time to put together a demo and once they finish that demo the game has long since moved on in development.
B-radical  +   741d ago
Lol 35% complete could mean anything tho

The part of the game they have shown could be 100% done
Hercules189  +   741d ago
To all those claiming its only 35% done, its less than 5 months from launch, there might be small improvements but nothing major. I think the reveal trailer showed off what it can look like if they waited til 2014 to release it.
SoapShoes  +   741d ago
Dude... The 35% just meant the demos, it didn't mean they weren't further into production. It's an old build, simple as.
dlocsta  +   741d ago
That is a dumb a$$ statement. Why would they show an old build if there is new and improved software to show? Face the facts, it is not everything Sony flameboys want it to be. Get over it and for once, just once, stop making excuses for Sony. Do they pay you?
Destrania  +   741d ago

A new build will be at GamesCom idiot

Because that is how it has always been and always will be.

At launch what few people who bought an X1 and Forza will begin sobbing and fall into a deep depression because they were stupid enough to buy an X1 and Forza instead of a PS4 and DriveClub.
InTheZoneAC  +   741d ago
after watching the first 10 seconds of actual gameplay footage, I can say this game definitely isn't for me...
Thomper  +   741d ago
This is a lose lose situation.

Anyone who actually know anything about anything knows that Forza 5 is going to whip Driveclub's arse!

It looks better, it runs faster, it WILL play better. The demo of F5 that people have been playing was pre-alpha, so it's only gonna get better.

Driveclub is a really good sign of what this British developer is capable of, but it can't hope to compete with turn10 who have been fine tuning their art for years.

Before you Sony fanboys start foaming at the mouth, calm down and accept the reality of the situation. I'm not even a fan of driving sims, I think they are frustrating and boring.

Forza's real competition will come from Gran Turismo, until such time, please don't eve try to compare the Jedi to the apprentice, it's embarrassing and just makes you look like a fanboy.

Love games, not corporations

Evolution makes kick butt racing games. I'm not even going to comment on all the other deluded foolish things you just said. You sound like a moron.

Someone's mother never taught him manners and you have zero debating skills...so, whatever...

Calling me a moron isn't an argument, it's playground stuff and just makes you look like a chump.

Hey, if the cap fits.......

Your debating skills are much worse acting as if what you say is fact. Ha!
DigitalRaptor  +   741d ago
How is it a lose-lose situation? The article didn't mention Forza 5, so how is it that you don't see the irrelevancy of your comment on this article? How come you can't see your comment for what it is? Because your comments as of late, tell a story that you're pretending hasn't been written.

Is DriveClub not going to be a good game that comes for free to those who have a Plus subscription?

Exactly. Evolution know their racing games, and they make great racing games. There is no lose-lose about the situation.

So, you honestly think that this can go up against Forza???

Fair enough. I shall respect your opinion, but disagree with it.

I guess we will find out soon enough... Though 4 months doesn't seem soon, does it??

Tres excitamondo!!!
Pintheshadows  +   741d ago
DigitalRaptor said nothing about Forza 5 and DriveClub competing yet you still tried to question him on it. Jesus Thomper, you are really grasping at straws.
bsquwhere  +   741d ago
No he's right your a moron. This article has nothing g to do with Forza so go away.

Imagine this place with Gran Turismo 7 on PS4 launching.
PS4OUR  +   741d ago
@ Thomper:
You just compared an arcade racer (driveclub) to a sim racer (forza 5) and then in the same argument you state that Gran Turismo is the better competition. Way to contradict yourself mate. I think your debating skills need a bit of work. Driveclub and Forza cannot be compared, period. I find it quite ironic how Forza is suppose to be a simulation racer but yet it features baked in lighting and shadows, and Driveclub is sitting there with dynamic lighting and weather effects. Is simulation not suppose to simulate real life conditions. Just a thought.

I'm looking at GT6 and Drive club at comic con, both look good but one is supposed to be a next gen title but it's hard to tell at all (more has to do with how good GT6 looks)
Man-E-Faces  +   741d ago
I do believe that has to do with PD's(kaz)obsession with making GT visually closer to real life with each new PS console, furthermore Sony gives PD a very large budget to work with and time and rightly so as the GT franchise is PlayStation's biggest exclusive, when a new GT gets announced there's always hype/excitement be it good or bad, just wait until GT7 PS4. Evolution gets likely none of these luxuries money wise or time with it being a release game. Also GT6 on PS3(dated hardware) rivals graphically PCars max settings on current PC hardware, that's how good PD is when it comes to visuals.
bsquwhere  +   741d ago
Sony fanboys are the worst they come on to every article and bash the Xbox./s...Wow look at the turn out of Xbox fanboys getting inline to bash a PS4 game. Neither For za or Drive Club have been shown as a final product so everyone chill the f out. If I see another pic showing the bad physics in a unfinished Drive Club video, I'll putting links up to all the physic fails in a finished Forza games(and there are plenty). So Xbox fanboys go back to your pages. This has nothing to do with Microsoft at all.

Pintheshadows  +   741d ago
Yeah, no offence but both sides are just as bad as each other and deserve a place in the openzone (please bring back the openzone) so people can discuss a game they are interested in without retards spewing crap all over the internet.
bsquwhere  +   741d ago
I like how Milkelens not only proves I'm right but misses the point completely. You complain about Sony drones yet here you are on a Sony article talking shit about a Sony game to Sony fans. Xbox fans are just as bad, if not worse because their in denial. YOUR ON A PAGE ABOUT SONY AND A PS4 GAME..GO AWAY. THIS IS IN CAPS BECAUSE I FEEL THAT IT MIGHT HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR BEING A FANBOY. OK I'm done.
christrules0041  +   741d ago
You know the E3 demo was 35% complete. How do people know it won't look like that in the end product? You can't even see it with it being even half way done yet. Just wait.

Driveclub will be a fun-racer, no more, no less. Meanwhile im enjoying GT5 like this guy here :

30fps for a racer is an absolute no buy. We've already overcome that balance of great graphics combined with near 60fps hurdle years ago on the ps3(gt5). There's no reason 60fps or close to it isn't top priority for racers. The sense of speed which is achieved by fluid and smooth frame rate makes up a huge part of the gameplay.

Polyphony needs to show these guys how its done with gt7.

Isn't MotorStorm, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift, and I think MotorStorm: Apocalypse all rendered at 30fps?... If so, then why does a racing game has to necessarily be at 60fps, in order to be "buy", when the mentioned games are at 30fps and are fun as all heck?...
specialguest  +   741d ago
Those games came during the early part of the PS3 gen when a lot of us existed the PS2 gen and arriving to next gen. At that time, I was still accustomed to 30fps for racers and the big jump in graphics and physics was enough to wow me.

It's been many years since then and 30fps on racers started to show its age. Just like how polygon graphics introduced on the PS1 was amazing despite being super jaggy, yet during the later console generations, jaggies were unacceptable. In this case, 30fps for racers for my own taste is just not doing it for me.

when ppl argue for exclusives u hav to wonder how many actually play/played the game i would think that the driving sim genre requires a bit of a taste for it not something u just pick up and play but it seems like on this site everyone and their grandmother is into them.is fanboyism so great u argue for shit u don't care about?

need for speed is more appealing imo and it's multiplat so everyone wins :)
Man-E-Faces  +   741d ago
I do believe this is or should I say will be legit as in what you'll get when DriveClub releases, remember it's been made very clear that Sony and their studios would not show fake footage again, and 2 of those studios responsible for those fake videos were Guerrilla(Killzone 2) and Evolution(Motorstorm). And both were at the PS4 debut in Feb., so why would Evolution and Sony want to go through with the PR and fan backlash again?
And lastly the footage shown at the reveal was replay assets put together, we have not seen the replay mode at all in the e3 build. USE YOUR BRAIN!

well this game as digital foundry said ...look as a shit

if ps4 esclusives will look like this with all that uber duper graphics advantage...better buy an xbox

destiny>kz shadowfall (hard)
forza>driveclub (double hard)
ryze,quantum break graphics (best graphics of the e3)

id ont know if theres nothing much to say more than this

The PlayStation fan club is going to say any exclusive is better than Forza no point in arguing with them. Before you reply if your a PlayStation fan and aren't ignorant then I'm obviously not talking about you.
Flames76  +   740d ago
Nope what they showed at E3 was the same BS sony pulled at E3 2005 with Motorstorm and Killzone 2.They showed the actual gameplay of Driveclub a few days ago and it was horrible.I can see why they are giving it away free with PS Plus.
