How Evolution Studios’ PS4 racer is pushing back the boundaries
The amount of detail and effort they put on this game is amazing
Well, with an extra year I would hope so.
Next gen racing has arrived...no doubt this will be the racing game to beat! My 2 favorite videos of DC... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... I can't wait to get my hands on this games!
That is more details then there are cars in the game.
There are 55 cars in the game
An absolute next-gen experience no doubt. Just another thing I love about Sony's 1st-party, attention to detail. Incredible. Now I just need the game haha
Huh? I killed that guy over 2000 years ago
1. It's nice to read this stuff after a delay And 2. When you read stuff like this, you can't help but wonder what this game cost ..so meticulous
Day 1 This game is insanely detailed.
I see comments complaining about "only 55 cars" a lot. That's because they aren't putting hundreds of crap cars in the game. Driveclub is about driving the best and most exotic cars in the world. So those 55 cars are just fine with me.
It's unbelievable =O
Taking 7 months to build one car I guess that's why there are just 55 cars in the game. They don't want to add cars that didn't receive the same attention to detail just to have more cars
Another racing game released last year with 200 odd cars all built meticulously from the ground up on a new engine but was torn to shreds for the "lack of cars." I call double standards, especially since that racer also had to worry about actual gameplay mechanics for all those cars like car physics and all that jazz.
And here you are again! LMAO. You need to take a step back and ask yourself why a PS4 exclusive, that you're never going to play, bothers you so much. You're embarrassing yourself. And i love how conveniently warped your telling of past events are. The reason why people said 200 cars was unacceptable for Forza 5 was because past Forza games had twice the amount. It was in comparison to the old games, not a standalone judgement. So don't even go there. "200 odd cars all built meticulously from the ground up" DC's cars take SEVEN MONTHS to make, each. That's what i would call meticulous. They deemed the quality of each car more important than the quantity of cars on the roster at lower quality. Who are you to question their judgement? Want a racer with hundreds of cars on the roster? Go play Forza or Gran Turismo. But i'll be enjoying DC, with in-game car models that look better than Forza's Auto-Vista car models.
@Bundi Can you please prove to me those 200 cars where built separately like Drive club?? Cause that would also be impressive Also stop comparing arcade racer to sim racer Compare Forza 5 to Gran Turismo not Drive Club
Oh, and one other thing. I keep seeing you mention the fact that DC doesn't have "realistic physics", like that's some sort of negative....but if im not mistaken, the game has been advertised as an arcade-style racer from the beginning, and compared more to the likes of PGR, than games like Forza and GT, in terms of handling. So that's another failed trolling attempt you can tick off. The devs never aimed for realistic physics in terms of car handling, and never told us to expect it, so why you're attempting to use it against the game....i don't know. Expecting sim-style car physics from this game is stupid, and only setting yourself up for disappointment. We will most likely get a racer than feels more akin to PGR than any other racer.
Actually Lukas, they DO have realistic physics for each car, but they adjust it slightly to make sure races are fun for everyone. That's why it's seen as a hybrid of both Sim and Arcade racer.
Forza is arcade just like Drive Club lol. Forza was never sim, it tried and fell flat on it's face.
lol, Forza has never been a sim on GT's standards... Forza looks very last gen looking to me, it should be compared to GT on the PS3. Let the big dogs get compared to Drive Club. If anything Drive Club probably has more in depth physics, just modified to make it fun to play for arcade fans too.
Forza 5 was built on the 360 and ported to Xbox1. It was not built from the ground up on nextgen. Likely those cars came across from previous Forza games.
GT5/6 premium cars take about 6 months to make according to PD..So i doesnt suprise me if Evo is saying the same here with Driveclub...Heck they need to make more details with cars since they're working on PS4. More Horsepower=more things you can do.
Takes 6 months for each car in forza, too. If you're going to do it, do it properly, and the results are amazing!
Took 6 months for each car in forza 5. What's impressive about driveclub is that the environment also has that much development time. Good to see a game actually improved by its delay
I really hope this game does well, I only live a few miles from Evolution Studios and all the developers are so passionate about this game. They really deserve the success.
> Wildlife is realistically tied into the day/night cycle. You’ll see flies and butterflies only during the day, and moths and bats only at night. Flies? Who needs flies in a racing game?
You'll change your mind once you see dead flies passted over your windshield. Details like these are what make it so much more immersive.
True dat, true dat I've been watching Isle of Man TT this week on Velocity channel and when the show the first type view the windshield guards on the bikes are pasted all over them Lol. I give a great feel for the experience of bike racing. I just got this feeling this game is so going to rock I am super ready for it.
Number 41: That is when you know you've done something right! :D Cannot wait to play this
Mind= blown O.O Can't wait for this beauty...
"Some tracks boast over 1.2 million road-side trees – and this number keeps going up as the artists try to out-do each other as development progresses." It's not like there are more important things to create right? Like I dunno know, more cars or something frivolous like that. They spent all this time simulating clouds and wind speed effects on trees and water but they couldn't be bothered to calculate car physics and create a roster of cars consisting of more than just European cars? Gonna be some pretty interesting drive clubs created, I bet you more than just a couple will contain identical garages due to member limit and overall car limit. @Heavy, Are you implying that you (of all people) never comment on games that you aren't going to play? Lol dont gimme that BS. So now only PS4 owners are allowed to critique ps4 games? Also, when did I EVER say that i'll be enjoying Forza "more" than DC? Or any game for that matter? Please don't put words in my mouth in your attempts to villainize me and score points with your brotherhood. @lukas, im surprised you are still running your mouth after you claimed the car limit was due to it only featuring supercars and no other classes. That theory was soon put to shame.
It's not like you will be playing the game, for what I've read you'll be enjoying Forza more, so why the trolling?
Lmao, what a surprise it is to see you in YET ANOTHER PS4 article, trolling. It sounds to me like you're repressing your true feeling towards the PS4 by trolling articles about it. Can't wait for this game to release to put fraudster naysayers like you in your place. I'll be sure to link many of my own screenshots and gameplay clips for you to enjoy. Heck, you can even watch gameplay clips and GIF's right now if you like....All you have to do is google them. On topic: CRAZY attention to detail. Knowing that they are so dedicated to such small details is reassuring about the overall standards of quality they have for the entire game. My most anticipated racer for sure. Please, please, please include a photo-mode, Evolution!
Stop posting nonsense. If you don't have any interest in this game, leave the article. Devs don't need your vision to develop their game. They are free to do as they like. Why don't you go ask playground devs to make fh2 60fps, since xbox fans can never play a racing at 30fps, instead of showing your jealousy towards DC. @xheavyx He is insecure that DC might destroy fh2 in terms of graphics, so he is continuously downplaying DC in articles to take out his frustration.
Last time i checked it's their game and they can do what the hell they want because it's their vision :/ you don't have to buy it.
jeez , can you atleast be positive, Evolution Studios worked their asses off to make drive club as detailed as possible and I thank them for that.
"Please don't put words in my mouth in your attempts to villainize me and score points with your brotherhood." Dude....how can you not see that you do that well enough all on your own? The very fact you comment on so many PS articles is making you a laughing stock here. It's embarrassing to see how much the PS4 and it's games affect you. "@lukas, im surprised you are still running your mouth after you claimed the car limit was due to it only featuring supercars and no other classes. That theory was soon put to shame." I hold my hands up to that, i was dead wrong. I'm man enough to admit that. The fact there are only 50 (?) cars is actually due to the 7 month process to make each car, i didn't realise. Lol @ "running your mouth"...says the guy who runs his mouth in articles of games he's never going to play, on a system he doesn't even have!
Again this stupid comparison for Forza to Drive club to have more cars The Evo team tried to make an arcade racer as realistic as possible with the best cars they could get for the game, the cars still have different categories The turn10 team built a full sim mostly concentrating on cars than realsitic environment or might I say very terrible environment for a next gen game, hopefully Forza Horizon 2 is better. Why are you Xbox trolls so afraid to compare Forza 5 to Gran Turismo??
You know your a waste of a gamer Lol why do you constantly bash a game for a system you'll probably never buy and a game you'll never play? If GT(which I love) and forza had this level of detail we'd be singing their praises. Stop trolling DC articles and do something productive with yourself Lol.
Oh, looky here- 44 "Although not a sim, DRIVECLUB’s handling model is based on real world physics, using technical data about performance provided directly by the manufacturers." 45 "To fine-tune the performance of every vehicle, a virtual “rolling road” test is used to check acceleration, top speed, weight distribution and braking performance." 46 "Aerodynamics are physically modelled. For example, activating DRS on the McLaren P1 affects the levels of downforce to increase top speed and acceleration." So much for "they couldn't be bothered to calculate car physics ". Lol, you're such a fraud. I enjoy calling out and correcting fraudster trolls like you.
You just sound upset that the most definitive racing experience will not be on the console you own. I understand your pain. I guess those 2D crowds aren't keeping you satisfied?
@Bundi 55 cars actually sounds like a lot to me. Then again I haven't played a racing game in a long time though. I'll probably just slip into favorites and not even try all of them out. Plus, it's not like they can't add more in down the line. Then again some people just like to complain or compare because of a pissing contest, and if that's the case you're just pissing into the wind man.
Now that is attention to detail.
This is amazing! Foolishly, I had expected this kind of gameplay from Forza 5 on my Xbox One. It was my first Forza and it was like I was playing a lie. When Driveclub was delayed I was disappointed because I wanted a real racer for my PS4. Now, I can see the delay was totally worth it. I can't wait to play this in October. Hope to see you on the tracks. Happy Gaming everyone. 😸
260k Polys! wow
Even if this game sucks(WHICH I HOPE IT DOESNT)Evolution Studios deserve credit for the amount of detail they have put into the game. Sounds incredible.
Holy shit!!! That what i expect from a next gen driving game :) Day one!!!
Wow. Just wow.
"The recordings were so accurate that BMW and Mercedes-Benz AMG requested copies to replace their existing library." Lol that's awesome. Great read. Really show how much effort Evolution Studios are putting into this game. I've been watching gameplay of Canadian track over and over again lately.. SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!
Games like this brings tears to my eyes, in a very good way! i'm blown away by the detailing in this game. Just gorgeous!
i want to play this game so bad it seems like they have been talking about it forever
I hope Evolution uses this engine for future games! A new Motorstorm with this freakish engine.
Wow! Can't wait.
Day one buy.
