With the re-reveal of Driveclub happened yesterday the newly appointed Game Director Paul Rustchynsky is hard at work responding to the questions of the fans, giving details on several aspects of the game.
They said the tracks will be massive can't wait to try them out Myself.
I'm not sure 5 minutes top is what I'd define "massive," It's not Nurburgring massive, but that's pretty big.
Oh well I still can't wait to play it. Question: does anyone know the amount of cars in the game?
Unannounced for now.
"There will be the possibility to turn the HUD off like in inFAMOUS: Second Son." Oh god yes. That would be great. Nothing on the screen but jaw-dropping visuals. It would also be more challenging for people who race with manual gear changes, having to listen to the sound of the car to judge when to shift up or down due to their being no speedometer. Make it happen guys!
"I'm not sure 5 minutes top is what I'd define "massive," It's not Nurburgring massive, but that's pretty big." The Red Bull does Nurburg in under 5 in GT5: http://www.youtube.com/watc... That car is bat$%^& insanely hard to drive like a master though. I have no issues with Nurburg with the lower to mid class cars, but 600PP (Performance Points) and over I can't keep the damn things on the road in certain sections.
I don't know why I was still thinking this was an open world game..I really want to like this game, but everything i'm hearing so far is really generic racer stuff.I guess its my fault for letting my imagination run wild when they announced this game...I'm sure I will still like the game regardless but still, hopefully they blow me away at e3
Wrong: "The length of the roads and race tracks in DRIVECLUB **vary massively**" Meaning there could be some very short tracks like there could be very long tracks. "with some that you can speed around in less than a minute and others that stretch on for miles. "
5 minutes is pretty big for any real life circuit.
Dmarc-"I don't know why I was still thinking this was an open world game.." You are thinking of "The Crew" from Ubisoft Lucas-"It would also be more challenging for people who race with manual gear changes, having to listen to the sound of the car to judge when to shift up or down due to their being no speedometer. " If they do a proper cockpit view you can just use the in-car gauges :)
So is it "free" as in you get to keep it and play it forever (even after your sub runs out?) It'd be dumb for a lite version to require the subscription to play it. I mean, it makes sense that you get it via PS+, but you should be able to keep a lite version forever. What do you guys think? Does this run out like the other games? (I get the 'full game' require sub thing, but not a 'lite' one.) Halfway asleep. Hope that made sense.
The same as any other free game on PS+
Meh. I can see how that'd work for full games, but for a less-than-full version such as this, it seems kind of pointless to even make a second edition that simply expires as any other 'full' game.
You can't expect Sony to just give away a new title for free.... Anyways, this is more for promotion. I'm sure they are confident on the game being good enough to make people get the full version, but people who can't or are unable to spend loads of money can still enjoy a less beefed up version.
While I can see your point I guess i'm sorry but you just seem to be yet another person who wants the earth for nothing. you get loads with PS+ and a crack at this game without spending any more money. You come across as a bit selfish to be honest. And thats just my opinion.
It's a brand new "AAA" game, slimmed down to make it equivalent to those $15 ranged psn titles that PS+ has been giving out. Those $15 games require PS+ so why shouldn't this? From the description it has much more in it than a demo. Why would a PS4 owner let PS+ expire anyways?
That sounded real Japanese. At least in my head. LoL
I did it with the divekick voice lol
LMAO...I had to look up Divekick. OMFG. :( hahaha But yes that was the voice I had in my head...just not DiveKick. LoL
Look forward to trying out the PS Plus edition. I'm hoping they don't focus on this game too much at E3 though.
same here, we have seen it already i want to see new things.
if they don't mention it at E3 might be a sign they are just pooping it out and moving on , if they try to hype it , it could be a sign they think its going to be great and want to build the brand .
I didn't say they shouldn't mention it, rather that they shouldn't focus on it. A quick 5 minute slot would suffice. Quick trailer -> 'Here's what we've done' speech -> Next.
Hmmmm I have concerns over the arcade race style if there's rubber band racing evolved my hype for this game will be officially buried.
I've actually gotten to play #driveclub, granted it was an old version, but it wasn't very arcady. There was no rubberbanding and you couldn't just throw on the breaks last second to drift through a turn. It wasn't as realistic as GT or Forza but more realistic than NFS. Its a hard mix to describe, sorta an intermediate racing sim. Hard to explain.
glad to hear that you have actually played it keeps my hope alive anyways . i'm not a great racing gamer but appreciate skill .rubber banding sucks the fun away . i don't suppose you see any customisation and weather its quite deep or minimal ??
@Stravrami-mk2 I only got one race and wasn't able to really get into customization and such. I can say that the game required you to slow down going around turns, it had those arrows that change from green to red to tell you if you were going to fast to make the turn. It was a nice mix, not to sim like but not to NFS like. There were some other interesting things. Each PS4 was hooked up to a camera and you could take a picture at the start of the race. So as you approached other racers it would show their picture above the car. Overall I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the free version to try out some more. Disclaimer. When I played it it was before it went "back to the drawing board" so a lot could have changed since.
From what i have seen and understood from all i could read about this is its a mix between Project Gotham racing and a more sims like approach ( Forza/Gt ). basically action like Pgr and control feeling like a sim. Should be good. Also stavrami-mk2 i agree about the rubberband effect . Motorstorm 2 had it pretty bad and it killed it for me.
More info from game director here --> http://www.neogaf.com/forum... "You can earn the platinum trophy in the PS+ Edition, remember its the full game minus a few cars/tracks." "We are working on a photo mode, but that's all I can say about it right now." "When you upgrade from the PS+ Edition you get the full digital edition content."
Your name is hilarious <3
Photo mode??God yes :O!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Platinum for the psplus edition? I didn't realize that. If it's true, that's pretty darn good.
I still have my Logitech racing wheel for my Formula 1 racing games, can't wait to try it out on Driveclub.
It would be awesome if they follow what Sucker Punch has done and have the option to turn off the HUD and add a photo mode. It can be done, give it to us fans who have been waiting on this game from the get go.
i play on PC and i love my Sim or pretty much any racing game to be as realistic as possible and i always turn off all the hud and assist. It makes no sense to have them. Think about it when you drive/race a real car you don't have any of that info. I wish that you would have a pit crew though, cause most racing team on any event these days at least have communication or a navigator. God damnit out of bubble. Bubble me up someone lol
I think the PS+ version of it is cool! 10 cars, 5 tracks in 11 distinct variants? not bad! definitely gonna playing this until i can buy the full version of this. Not buying hard copies no more because they're annoying now! all digital for me.
After those short Facebook clips, no PS Plus version for me. Day one full game.
Full version for me!
Still iffy on whether it will be fun, or not. I really couldn't care less about locked 30 fps. It'll be stable, so that's good. I just want it to be great fun.
I hope the glorified demo version of Driveclub for PS+ isn't the start of a trend. Not many people are complaining now but what if more Triple A PS+ releases on PS4 are 'lite' version? What if the next release is Killzone: Shadow Fall, the first three single player chapters, no multiplayer, free on PS+?
I wouldn't mind that trend giving us a chance to try out the game for free then let us decide if we wanna buy the full version how is that a bad trend :/.
What you just explained was a demo. No one is complaining about those. They are great for both the player and the devs. However, what you got you had to pay for with Plus, when a demo could be given for free. I think that's what the difference is. Not trolling, thats just the problem I have with it.
How the hell is demoing a game a bad trend? There is no subscription model so there's no risk of driveclub becoming a free to play model so that's out of the question. Youll be limited but you still have part of the massive game, giving you a chance to try the game. We hardly have any demoes! We need more shiny gold demoes exposed to others who have limited budgets to decide whether theyre happy with the feel of the game.
wtf are you talking about? its an additional option. no one is forcing you to get this version. in my eyes, its a version for the people still on the fence about purchasing the full version of the game. so how is a way of trialing a game before you buy it in anyway a bad idea?!
it is probably going to take up a slot on the instant collection which normally is reserved for full titles... if it's a demo, why not stick it in the demo section of the store then? I thought the PS+ edition was going to more feature complete than this as well
@ipach i think i heard its not taking up an instant game collection monthly slot. so try not to jump to conclusions until they confirm whats happening huh? :P
I prefer a glorified demo than no demo at all. Most games dont get a demo anymore so a glorified demo would be very welcome
I can't reply to all of you individually so I'll reply to myself and try and address your questions. Firstly, thank you all for replying. I sense from the hostility that I've offended some of you, sorry that was not my intention. I don't think demos or trials are a bad idea, I think they're great and are far too rare these days. What I'm worried about is the replacement of full free triple A games on PS+ with stripped down trial versions such as we're receiving with Driveclub. Never before have we received a stripped down "PS+ edition" of a game that wasn't identical to the regular retail version and this change has me a little concerned. I'm probably worried about nothing and the only reason the first triple A PS4 game on PS+ is a lite version is because it's the start of the generation and Sony can't secure full versions of triple A games for PS+ at the right price yet. Regardless, that is my concern. Not that demos are bad but that they'll replace free full triple A games on PS+.
I agree with you man. I'm not really understanding the people who disagree. They are justifying why they're okay with this "demo +", but any other time that's just a demo. I paid for PS+ and I understand that it is a great value. There is no denying that. Which is why I've been a member since day one. But I also do remember Sony saying that this game was going to be free with PS+. And now that it got pushed back and its better than it was initially expected to be now they are giving us a "Lite Version" because now they think its worth more since the enhancements. I can play a demo with a few cars and a few tracks and see if I like the game and not have to pay for plus for that. The difference between the 2 is that I have a few more cars and trophies. I really do think Sony maybe spoke to soon and now the'yre trying to retract and manipulate what they previously said because now they realize its a more polished game.
Still have this on pre-order from Amazon. October 8th can't come soon enough.
despite all the problems theyve had, im still really looking forward to this!
Still have the pre-order from Amazon. I get the full game for 20€ yeaaahhhh - :-)
When your game director leaves after the game is already delayed, and much of the team is going back to the "drawing board"? I smell more Dualshockers Sony spin, possibly a link to Neogaf.
Its not bad, for a full new retail game it's not a bad offering with ps+ membership. Looking forward trying the game out. Personally, I only play Gran Turismo series and sometimes Formula 1 titles however I'm willing to try the game beforehand.
Hmmm after reading this I'm a little disappointed. I feel like this is going to be a shinier, bigger version of something closer to grid and not more like gran turismo or forza. The things I like about those titles are how realistic the physics are to real driving and how accurate the tracks are to real life. Guess I will just have to hold out for project cars to get my sim fix on ps4. Bummer.
PS Plus edition seems more gimped than original described... Previous language was: "DriveClub PS Plus Edition is the full game minus a few cars and tracks" Still looking forward to it, but disappointed it won't be something more people have more access to.
