Driveclub Full HD gameplay from Gamescom 2013

Driveclub impressed Worlds Factory crew at Gamescom. It was by far the best looking PlayStation 4 game they were able to check out (unfortunately they couldn’t try Killzone: Shadow Fall though), and you can see why thanks to this Full HD gameplay recorded live. (Driveclub, Gamescom 2013, PS4)

The more I see this game the more I like it ( Not a big fan of racing games in general). The lighting and shadows are great and the detailed damage to the cars is awesome as well. I wish they would release that 1080p capture that promised already :p.

They're releasing a direct feed video soon! Hopefully we'll get it in the next 24 hours. This game just keeps on giving.

The game looks great. I don't know why people don't like it. Is it because it isn't GT ?
GribbleGrunger  +   482d ago
Trust me, lots of people love this game, it's just that the media are not reporting the game in the same way the fans are receiving it. It's the same with KZS. So many people are going to be broadsided when these games release.

@ pedrof93

it's because it's not forza. the only complaints i've ever seen have been from certain people in the xbox camp (going as far as saying it looks like a N64 game).

edit: ... and here come the xbox stealth disagrees...

another direct feed? they already did one hours ago?

full HD video my @zz, it's recorded off screen. lol

It actually looks better the more I see it. When it was first announced it was sort of a passable title, but the seamless challenge stuff seems surprisingly good. Good thing it's free (ish) for PS+ subscribers.
HammadTheBeast  +   482d ago
One thing I'm getting a bit tired of is only seeing time trials though, I want to see a full out 12 man race soon.
dcj0524  +   482d ago
Same here. I want a CLUB VS CLUB race. 6v6 team race.
Nocando  +   482d ago
Unsure as to why people are bashing this game, I think it looks amazing. I also like the way the cars seem to have real weight and not flying all over the track.
Hicken  +   481d ago
Oh, you're as sure as the rest of us: it's not Forza. The only people slamming Drive Club belong to a certain camp, and do so because their camp has a next-gen racer to promote, as well.
josephayal  +   482d ago
I think I'm more excited for this than GT6
nosferatuzodd  +   482d ago
People love the game it's Xbox forza fans feel threatened by the games potential so they come to anything driveclub and vent their anger on the game claiming the graphics suck when we all know that's not true the game look amazing forza look like a cartoon every car looks chrome in the light reflection ..

What got me was that the sunlight was reflecting off a car. In a dark tunnel. Yeah.
Nocando  +   482d ago
I love Forza, but this looks awesome as well.
Tsar4ever  +   482d ago
I think Drive Club, Forza 5, GT6 and Need for Speed: Rivals should feel threatened by Ubisoft's "The Crew" game. Now what going down in that open world racer seems more truly next-gen than anything these other racers has to offer.
Pintheshadows  +   482d ago
Hopefully Ubisoft fixes the handling as from the previews the handling model isn't very good. And frankly, if they get that wrong, it doesn't matter how good the idea is or how large the world is. Just look at FUEL.
BoriboyShoGUN  +   482d ago
Im more of a racing simulator type of guy, but this came looks like it hits the middleground between simulator and arcade perfectly! love the challenges in race to see who corners, drifts the best etc. Will try the free version at first, but if its as great as it looks I will go back and pickup a hardcopy to get a few more bonuses!
fpshooter2  +   482d ago
Gran Turismo though a top notch sim has always been over my head. Not saying this wont be as good but it seems like it'll be more my "speed".

Nice to see how well its coming along. Its looking absolutely beautiful. Cant wait to get my plus version, but i will most likely be upgrading to the full game
T2  +   481d ago
True I was a gt pro , I actually drive my car differently because of gt... GT takes real dedication you must memorize the tracks, etc... This looks a bit more like casual fun as I dont quite have the time I used to ....
GT is so precise that my friend, also a pro, used to race me and every race was within a fender length , literally side by side racing for almost whole races, times in the hundredths of seconds difference
Alexious  +   482d ago
When we played the game we were all pleasantly surprised. The game looks amazing, and the build was still labeled as alpha; despite frame rate being around 30fps, the speed sensation was still good.

Driving seems a perfect hybrid between arcade and simulation: you can't screw up and expect to remain on track, but at the same time it should be fairly accessible to new players eager to improve. Also, the club vs club thing could be an unexpected ace hole in Evolution's pocket. This game will drive a lot of PS4 sales, I believe.
WeAreLegion  +   481d ago
Club vs. club is exciting, but I think the fact that every section of a track is a new challenge brings an RPG element to racing that we didn't even know we wanted!
Pintheshadows  +   481d ago
That is a good way of looking at it. In a roundabout way it is a form of MMO. Experience or 'fame' gained for achievements on the track. I love the idea actually and that is the best i've seen anyone put it.
DeadManIV  +   482d ago
Holy sh*t this looks real.
Xtremist  +   482d ago
This game is really pretty.
And the luxuriant vegetation looks Gorgeous!!!
It makes me want to get out of the car and walk to the nature.
NateCole  +   482d ago
Good for those that wanted a sim/arcade racer for PS.
JunioRS101  +   482d ago
Why even bother uploading more footage if it isn't direct feed....

Like I'll just go back and watch df
Pintheshadows  +   482d ago
I truly believe that it was just trols playing down this games visuals and nothing more. Look at it for christ's sake. It looks incredible. The shadows and lighting are definately next gen and the enviroments look incredible to boot. Add that they deform as well.
Eonjay  +   482d ago
Looks fantastic.
TemplarDante  +   482d ago
This game is like sex on wheels. :)
TheGrimReaper0011  +   482d ago
Looks nice, but would it be too much too ask to see some on screen recorded footage instead of this offscreen?
PrimeGrime  +   482d ago
Hmm no people saying the game looks like it could be played off of a calculator or N64 cartridge now, I guess because it isn't some horribly uploaded video as if that wasn't obvious before.

This and Project Cars are what I am looking forward to. I'd be getting Forza also later on but the whole lacking night and stuff kills me for a next gen title.

Sorry take it how you want to. I prefer the full experience of driving versus to just looking at car models mostly.

Rushy has promised direct feed footage over the coming days. Will be the same footage as they released a few days ago, but at much higher quality, and MAYBE some night footage.
clmstr  +   482d ago
the lighting is just superb in this game, wow. Colors look so natural, it's unbelievable.
MasterCornholio  +   482d ago
Looks much better than what we saw at E3.

I think the game will be pretty fun and im glad that plus users will get an extended demo of it.
Williamson  +   482d ago
Well a lot of racing game veterans are working on this game, so I'm not surprised at how good/fun it looks.
GiantEnemyCrab  +   482d ago
Looks awesome. It's more arcade than sim and I like that. These guys are as good as Criterion when it comes to arcade racers. Looks gorgeous and fun!
WeAreLegion  +   481d ago
Now THAT is a compliment. Criterion is the best dev in the arcade racing subgenre.
Destrania  +   482d ago
Spectacular. Anyone who says otherwise is a blind, deluded buffoon.
WickedLester  +   482d ago
If Evolution Studios can get this to 60fps I will be thrilled. So far, that is my biggest concern with this game! I just feel that in this day and age, racing games, sports games, and fighting games should all be 60fps as an uncompromising standard!
The_Infected  +   481d ago
I agree but I also think baked on lighting and no dynamic day/night cycle is bad. Looking at you Forza 5.
Alexious  +   481d ago
That would be ace, but I can guarantee that there's already a nice speed sensation.
Kujii  +   482d ago
Dynamic Global Illumination. If you sit on the track time will pass and it will become night!

Day one!.....

..download via PSN+ lol

Sarobi  +   482d ago
The game really does look better and better each time they showcase it. I was already excited for this, but now I'm really pumped!.
Kujii  +   481d ago
The fact you can win without being first to cross the finish line by completing challenges throughout the track is a cool concept.

I hate restarting the race just because I stuff up the last corner. And using rewind makes me feel dirty.
arbitor365  +   481d ago
"full HD"

oh sweet. i cant wait to watch this

*off camera gameplay*

Smokingunz  +   481d ago
Whatever, it looks no different than the racers tbat are out now smh. That's the very same reason why im waiting a full year to get my next gen console, maybe then the games will look like they suppose to then
The_Infected  +   481d ago
Says the one who bashes Sony most of his comments. /s
level 360  +   481d ago
Think if the physics would be comparable to say GranTurismo, it would really give a lot of cred to the game.

Social media feature side of the game does look very interesting.

I hate side-on video footage.. more so if their claiming it to be in HD, they shouldn't be posted.
brew  +   481d ago
It's an arcade racer , they aren't trying to make Gran Turismo.
