Driveclub Director Confirms 2014 Release, Clarifies Details on Microtransactions and Racing Wheels

Many have been wondering if Driveclub will really make a 2014 release, and that’s not too surprising considering the mystery surrounding basically every detail on the game’s development.
Today Design Director Paul Rustchynsky confirmed that the game is saferly headed for the shelves this year, but he declined to give a more precise timeline, also providing further details on microtransactions and compatible wheels. (Driveclub, PS4)

Yes! I love the gameplay in every racing game from Evolution, I am really happy I get to play it sometime this year still.

I was told it was the 10th ?
ZodTheRipper  +   503d ago
At least some good news for a change ...racing wheel support is definately appreciated. Now just don't make the game "forgetable" ...I'm expecting at least a 8/10 after all these delays.
goku  +   503d ago
It probably will be June 9th like last year.
chrismichaels04  +   503d ago
Im so excited for this game. I hope the rumors are true as well and we see a June release following E3. MLB14 The Show (May), Drive Club (June) and The Last of Us Remastered (Jul/Aug) will make an awesome summertime exclusive lineup for the PS4.

I think I'll get the PS+ version of this game when I get a PS4. I'm not totally sold on Drive Club yet. It looks amazing graphically but gameplay wise MotorStorm looks to have been more fun. Won't know until I play, though, and if I like it I'll buy the full retail version when it gets a price drop.

Well i think motorstorm and driveclub cater to two different types of racing fans. Hope Evolution revisits Motorstorm but driveclub is looking really solid

I cringe every time I hear Microtransactions.
Irishguy95  +   503d ago
g25 hopefully support for me :P

Although I dunno how fun it will be using a racing wheel for an Arcade type racer
Abriael  +   503d ago
When I tried it with a wheel it felt really nice.
frostypants  +   503d ago
I actually prefer a normal controller for arcade and arcade-sim racers.

Ive used my g25 for all kinds of sims and arcade racers, and for me its no comparison...I hate racing games without my wheel now. Its just so much more immersive imo. Really hope more games will support it this gen, and not force an upgrade to a newer wheel. I probably wont buy this if it doesnt support my wheel, I got nfs rivals and it was a real letdown playing with a controller again

Release date confirmation doesn't confirm the release date.
Abriael  +   503d ago
In fact it Confirms the release window, not the release date.
grashopper  +   503d ago
I am really curious to see a breakdown of the differences of the plus version and the 60 dollar one.
Will be interesting to see how much 60 bucks will pay for outside the plus version almost everyone will have.
Just seems like a sticky situation. Too little and the plus users will be upset, too much and the people paying for it will.
Can't wait to see it finished.
weirdo  +   503d ago
this game is gonna be dynamically sexy - hurry up e3
OrangePowerz  +   503d ago
Hope they support the Fanatec Clubsport wheel.
Abriael  +   503d ago
and my CSR... well, they're kinds the same.
Fluke_Skywalker  +   503d ago
I'll be pretty gutted if my Logitech DFGT isn't supported :(
Massacred  +   503d ago
Not of a fan of the Micro-transactions. Not when I'm paying 60 dollars already.
frostypants  +   503d ago
As long as they don't actually impact gameplay I'm sort of OK with it.
Massacred  +   503d ago
Personally it just kinds of wrecks my impression with the game.

I want to be fully engrossed and asking one to spend real world cash kind of takes you out of the trance.
Delsin_Rowe  +   503d ago
He also clarified what he meant with a previous vague statement on microtransactions, promising that there won’t be any “consumable” boost available for purchase in Driveclub. Also is a free PLUS+ game.
Dudebro90  +   503d ago
Swore they said No MT, and people slammed Forza for MT, so looks like MT are here to stay.
Minato-Namikaze  +   503d ago
He means map packs and what not. Not like the crew's MT's
Hicken  +   503d ago
"To be clear on microtransactions, DRIVECLUB will of course offer content to purchase/download. But there will not be any ‘consumables’."

Dude, it pays to read past titles, bro.
D3ATH_DRIV3R_777  +   503d ago
So DRIVECLUB will have microtransactions, and here nobody complains about it. But THE CREW has microtransactions , and everybody goes ballistic even after the creative director Julian gerighty of THE CREW has confirmed on TWITTER that players that uses real-world cash to buy them, you still have to level up to use them just like players have to level up to buy them with in-game money. Wow ppl are so twisted these days. Back to DRIVECLUB, getting their T80 DRIVECLUB edition wheel for this though. Now about that release date.....

brandonb21  +   503d ago
no your misunderstanding hes saying their will be PAID DLC to purchase and download. there will be no micro transaction
Provolone24  +   503d ago
It would be REALLY nice if they released it on the day of E3 and made it free with Plus to kind of make up for the delay...or is it already F2P?
Applejack  +   503d ago
No, it's a full retail game but PS+ owners will get a limited copy of the game and can upgrade to the full version for a discount.

Be really sweet if they had a demo out for E3
; )
mickaelmc  +   503d ago
If this game becomes compatible with my $180 Gran Turismo wheel I bought for my PS3 only a few years ago, I'll buy it on day one. I'm not paying that much for a PS4 compatible wheel for just one game. Nope.
Drekken  +   503d ago
I have a Logitech wheel G25 I think... I bought it with GT5. I will not be buying another wheel, but I would love to use this one for DC. I really don't want to play a racing game without the wheel, so my money is really depending on their wheel support.
towelie1288  +   503d ago
microtransactions ewww i will pass
The_Infected  +   503d ago
Do you guys "EVER" read past the title? He's talking about paid DLC not "microtransactions."
_FantasmA_  +   503d ago
Microtransactions bad. Drive Club good. As long as the microtransactions are cosmetic like paintjobs and vinyls then okay. But I hate it when you have to reach level 1000 just to unlock the first item or you can pay $20. Just like Warframe and Retribution, I couldn't get into those games and the high prices made them worse.
n1kki6  +   503d ago
Unless they add G27 support I will be holding off for a game that does. I have the playseat setup and am not dropping 500 on a t500rs.
DCfan  +   502d ago
which playseat do you recommend??
n1kki6  +   502d ago
I would get the playseat evolution. They can sometimes be had for 349 around the holidays. Here is my setup. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
DCfan  +   502d ago
I have a G27, love it, and can't play any racer now without using it, but my room is kinda small, so it kinda messes things up when its around. I was looking for a good playseat to improve stuff, but it seems i'll need another room for a perfect set up lol.
Thanks man.
n1kki6  +   502d ago
The seat that I bought was actually a model the was more expensive at the time because it could fold up, but it's not as sturdy. This is the seat I have. http://www.playseat.com/sho...
Farsendor1  +   503d ago
ill buy this game day 1 i was always excited for it.
D3ATH_DRIV3R_777  +   502d ago
MICROTRANSACTIONS? nah don't me it's gonna be in games regardless if ppl don't like it, i'm still gonna have a blast with this game. They need LOGITECH steering wheels compatible for this to.
Skate-AK  +   502d ago
Still have high hopes for this game.
