Your first look at DRIVECLUB’s dynamic weather in action

PSBlog :

"Evolution Studios took the wraps off DRIVECLUB’s dynamic weather system at E3 in Los Angeles this month and we were there to see it demoed live. Today we’ve got some new direct feed gameplay clips of it in action and an interview with the game’s Art Director Alex Perkins.

The clips are all taken from an early demo of the game’s realistic – and fully customisable – weather system, which will be available for DRIVECLUB as a free update for all players shortly after launch.

We’re really excited to give you an early look at how wind, rain, snow and everything in between can affect your races and how you can customise it in your challenges. Take a look at the new videos and then keep reading for more from Alex." (Driveclub, PS4)

Lmao, that was more or less my reaction when i first saw it.

It's simply unreal what Evo has managed to pull off with the PS4 so soon in it's cycle.

Take away the HUD from that 2nd video and i guarantee people would mistake it for a real video.

GOD DAYUMMMMMM!

It genuinely looks a whole lot photo realistic in comparison to other racers coming out on consoles this year. The exception being Project Cars but that doesn't count as the definitive edition of that will be on PC anyway

But holy damn, I prefer Driveclub's aesthetics to FMS5/FH2's kinda cartoony video-gamey look.

I remember reading they looked into what filters they use for the TV program Top Gear here in the UK to get a sense of realism into the IQ. Fantastic stuff.

edit: Also inb4 marcofdeath(aka marcberry of misterx's blog) comes in to tell everyone that this won't be possible on PS4.

All I have to say is wow. First Party PS devs, aren't playing. Drive Club, The Order, and Uncharted are all setting BARZ.

I wanted customization, and a few other other things, but I see why some things were sacrificed when you game looks like this. Thankfully Evolution said they're adding updates and plan on supporting DC for a long time so we might still get all those extras.

@FernGully

Forza looks like a cartoon compared to this? Are you serious?

https://www.youtube.com/wat...

Also it's sad where gaming fell these days. Only pixels count for people on this site, totally neglecting game depth. Driveclub is way overhyped game. Delayed twice, 50 cars WITHOUT modifications, few tracks, weather system on closed tracks AFTER release date and you sh!t your pants over a short video with rain. Somehow turn 10 manages to release another nex-gen racer this year with 200+ cars, huge open world, lots of cars on screen/traffic, seamless online 1000000 cars clubs, 700+ events, fully customizable cars (can even draw your ugly butt on a car if you wish) trading between players, selling cars, open world drivatars and more.

Driveclub can even have meteor rain and dinosaurs in the background for all I care, but it does not add depth, it does not add gameplay, it does not add value. We need more content these days, less fqin around with raindrops. So far driveclub is just a pretty game and doesn't have much to offer. If I'd only care about pixels I'd stick to my monster PC cause from that perspective,we console gamers look like idiots fighting over who's tube tv ( http://tinyurl.com/nzuexef ) is more powerful and has more pixels, pretending it's cutting edge technology and there is nothing beyond it.

It looks overly colour saturated and vibrant. It's cartoony. **No-one said this was a bad thing**, it's clearly down to what kinda of image quality you like. Driveclub is going for the more real aesthetic which they've stated before in info blowouts and magazine interviews and features whereas Forza has always been a lot more 'colourful'.

@Ballseye

55 tracks is "few"?

I stopped reading your comment at that point, but as for the small amount of comment I made it through before then...

Pixels are not all that matters. If DC doesn't handle well, it won't do well.

Delays aren't a bad thing, in and of themselves. DC appears to have benefited from the delay, and a certain other racing game would have benefited from a delay as well instead of being rushed for launch.

It's not a sim, so having no engine/parts tweaking isn't that big a deal. They want people to race according to skill, not time spent tweaking and tweaking. It's just not that kind of game.

I want to know how many people feel like they drive most of the cars in games where hundreds are available. I know I don't. I'm more interested in the number of tracks and the variable time of day and soon to be added weather.

The game looks and sounds outstanding, but as I said the final and most important test will be getting behind the wheel.

WOW.

You're so knowledgable about the games you are talking about that you don't even know that Turn 10 aren't even making Horizon 2.

YES. Both FM5 and Horizon 2 looks cartoonish compared to DRIVECLUB. You could remove the HUD of DRIVECLUB, and it would look real to the majority of people. Even gamers who are used to seeing car racing gameplay. It looks phenomenal and it plays great, as confirmed by recent hands-on at E3.

You are so insecure that you went on a tirade comparing 2 completely different kinds of games, knowing that they're not the same kind of game.

55 circuits being "few" to you, proves your strange way of thinking.
-----

"So far driveclub is just a pretty game and doesn't have much to offer."

You've proven you don't really have a leg to stand on as far as describing the game. What else other than graphics and insane atmosphere and immersion does it offer? It has rock solid, immersive and thrilling gameplay with fantastic sense of speed and competitiveness. It has plenty of online modes and social interactivity as expected from modern arcade racing games.

No car customization? BOO HOO! /s

It's not a sim racer. It has plenty of content that would not dare be criticised in ANY OTHER arcade racing game. For some reason, this PS4 exclusive gets the criticism that Xbox exclusives like Project Gotham Racing didn't get whilst being a great arcade racing series and following the same criteria of DRIVECLUB has done, whilst adding its own flavour.

What a beautiful looking weather. Comparing to other racing games... The best for sure. Remove the HUD and people might think that's a real life.

And look what MISTERX thinks about Driveclub ( hilarious ):

Quotes :

"...You was right about FH2. New footage destroys DC in power and things it renders on screen. Looks better now for me. Looks like real life..."

"...Looks great.

But don't care as FH2 will not that far worse for their open world.

( the best )
Could be PC version as smoke and mirror and will be downgraded. SONY ALWAYS LIES..."

EDIT :

You can notice forming ice on trees and how rain drops crawling on hood :

http://a.pomf.se/qmzfuo.gif ( or check the same video @HD )

Quote from article :

Q : What’s the scale of the weather types in the game?

Is it just rain or snow, or can we expect drizzle, sleet, downpours, blizzards and so forth?
Alex Perkins: You can expect every one of those and you can expect it to change DYNAMICALLY and UNPREDICABLLY while you race – because we’ve designed it to be just like real weather systems. Spots of rain can become torrential downpours or transition into blizzards, quickly or slowly, and when the clouds clear up the tracks will dry out too.

Sony wants us to buy a game that was delayed to improve its quality, and people will buy it cause it has become a worthy racing game from the extra work that's been put into it. They've clearly worked tirelessly to make this an excellent and gorgeous arcade racer worthy of the next-gen label.

Microsoft wanted you to buy a rushed, downgraded sim racer with an absolute joke of content compared to Forza 4 for $60, and then STILL spend an extra $50 on more content that should have been in the game in the first place. I think I know which company has made the better moves.

Face it. EVERYTHING you have said about DriveClub to try and downplay it has been factually inaccurate. I remember when you were trolling on the early gameplay footage which had ghost cars, saying that the PS4 couldn't handle the number of cars on the track being the reason. You are nothing short of an absolute joke.

@FernGully,

Like I said, we'll see what Drive Club is like at Games Con, when someone has a controller in their hands.

We'll see what Drive Club is like "at launch".

We'll see if the weather has any effect on driving.

We'll see if Drive Club can offer any scenery other than mountains.

We'll see if Drive Club can launch with more than 55 cars.

We'll see if Drive Club isn't pulling a Killlzone 2 @ E3:remember that?

Drive Club is nothing compared to what they were saying it was going to be in the beginning, Drive Club isn't open world like was touted against Forza Motorsport 5.

What are the features of Drive Club? If any of these new graphics of Drive Club are true, you can only play graphics for so long before it gets as tired as watching grass grow.

Games Con is around the corner, we'll see what happens there...

Are these people really upset that Sony fans can be virulent when talking about their hobby, after all the bulls**t that was pitched against the PS3 last-gen when it had great games every year, and clearly wasn't doomed?

These Xbox fanboys are literally delusional, and I don't know any group that has been as fiercely delusional as the Xbox fanboys over the past few years. Most of the Xbox trolls on here ARE out of their mind. You see people like NextLevel posting actual FACTS. They might be trolling, but they're still posting facts.

Illusive_Man, Truefan1, Corvusmd, Edonus, otherZinc - these people are actually delusional. It's sad to assume, but I think they all subscribe to Mrxmedia. They think that the Xbox One is doing amazingly well, when its sales have been declining month-by-month since January, and somehow they insist that Xbone has a chance of overtaking the PS4 in sales, when it clearly will never happen. They still think the power difference between the two consoles are not significant. Like I said, delusional. They are all still stuck in stage one and that's not healthy.

zeuanimals  +   70d ago
PGR was actually fairly arcade, and this game really reminds me of it. I mean, it wasn't fully NFS arcade, but the mechanics weren't super realistic.
GameSpawn  +   70d ago
As far as the cars and tracks are concerned, this is 100% arcade. The cars cannot be modified (like in a sim) to insure a fixed playing field and fair competition. The tracks have been "modified" so that you can take turns at much higher speeds than normally possible (for tracks inspired by real locations) and the physics have been "loosened" a bit to also allow for unrealistic turn speeds -- all traits of arcade racers.

However the dynamic weather and time of day is very indicative of a simulation racer. As far as "looks" are concerned this game will make sim fans raise an eyebrow.

Considering this is first party, I guarantee Polyphony is paying attention and will most likely borrow some of Evo's techniques for dynamic weather to improve the next Gran Turismo installment. Seriously, can you imagine Gran Turismo being as dynamic as this? The endurance races would truly become hell if you had ZERO control over weather conditions...it'd still be cool as hell, but damn if it doesn't ramp the difficulty.

Look impressive. Two things still have me worried about this game 1's is the sign on the 1st video just seemed to go through the car and the 2nd one is the cars seem to follow the same line round the track.

I know this is not the finished game but I really hope things like this are not in the final game. Im still on the fence about this game but look forward to seeing more of it.

You forgot to mention your biggest issue with it, it's not on the xbone.
mcstorm  +   70d ago
No really. I was all up for getting a PS4 on day one because of this game but when it got put back I got the Xbox one for Forza 5. If you look at my past comments you will see I have said plenty of times this has been the game I have been waiting for to pick up a PS4 as nothing on it so far I want. Not because I don't think the games are bad but because they are not the games I am interested in. Just because I picked some - points in the videos posted.
Why o why  +   70d ago
Fair comment to be fair.
bigbic  +   70d ago
Pretty much. When someone is desperate enough to comment on a sign not looking exactly right when you hit it in a fast car, that is beyond reaching. And how one of the cars seems to follow, goodness. It doesn't matter how good and fun a game looks, these guys will come out of the wood works.
mcstorm  +   70d ago
Lol bigbic I'm sorry did I upset you? I made a comment on what I want to see in a game just because you take it as a bad point dose not mean I a, sagging the game off. Read my comment again and you will see I put at the end of my 1st comment
"I know this is not the finished game but I really hope things like this are not in the final game. Im still on the fence about this game but look forward to seeing more of it."

So as you can see I am not coming out the woodwork and look at my past comments I have said for a long time this is the game I've been waiting for to pick a ps4 up. If its not what I want when its a finished product I wont pick a ps4 up until GT7 is out as for me there is not much that I want on the PS consoles at the moment not because I am a fan boy but because of the games I enjoy playing.

I have always owned a console for games I want not because it has more power, sold the most, the one everyone wants etc just like any tech I get what I want and will get the most fun out of. If you don't like that fine but do come and say I've come out the woodwork when its not true.

If you like driver club great get it just like people who get cod year in year out I'm not a massive fan but I don't slags them off for it.

I thought you were stealth trolling, my apologies.
mcstorm  +   70d ago
Well just to let you all know seems there seems to be some people on this page today who hate any negative news about a PS game I've just seen the video on http://n4g.com/news/1545490...
And this was a far better video than the one posted on this article and it has now made me get excited about the game again. It looks stunning the AI looks better than it did on this video and I still want to see a bit more of this game before I part my money for a ps4 but I do think this, project cars and Horizon 2 will be the racing games I pickup this year.

bigbic no problem just hate it when people automatically come and and say fanboy etc just because I don't like something they do. Had it a few times today on this site and it really is getting old and sad now.

For me its the fan boys that give gaming the bad name.

You can see the car collides with the sign, if you're quick enough with pause you can see the sign break.

"the cars seem to follow the same line round the track"..... that’s called the racing line.
mcstorm  +   70d ago
Thanks for that I did not slow it down just what I saw when I watched the video. Like I said not a big issue just something I noticed in it. I now its the racing line but its easy to guess the AI's move when this happens. Like I said this is still an early build so ide expect it to improve I just don't like it when cars just follow the same line all the time in racing games it gets old quick for me. It always has.

Edit Just done what you have said and yeah I see it break off now. Dose not look like it did when watched it but thanks for pointing it out.

@mcstorm

It might be best for you to avoid track racers if you don't like them all following the racing line. Unless you're overtaking or taking avoiding action drivers stick to the fastest route around the track that applies in real racing and gaming, if you don't then you will not win.
HaveAsandwich  +   70d ago
the sign went through the car? THAT's what you're focusing on in those vids?
BitbyDeath  +   70d ago
Games like motorstorm can get away with having cars all over the track due to it having a rubberband mechanic which allows other drivers to easily catchup. Driveclub does not have this so you need to use the racing line to win.

Majin-vegeta  +   70d ago

Yes it will. That's why they are showing it off now! It's been confirmed to have weather in the final release. We're gonna see snow, hail and rain, fog in varying degrees based on how you set it when you create a race along with setting the day and night cycles. We are suppose to get an in-depth look at Gamescon 2014 next month.
bigbic  +   70d ago
You don't like this game very much do you Team Litt?
Team_Litt  +   69d ago
"This game for me JUST went from

The guy is clearly basing his purchase of the game based on the weather features which I simply pointed out will be missing at said launch.
So yol can get off my junk!

Yeah this looks pretty insane visually. Need to see how it plays, though.
Immorals  +   70d ago
Yeah graphics aren't everything, I can't count the amount of times I've been taken in with pretty visuals, but the gameplay just let me down. If the cars handle well, and the Ai is good, then we have a solid racer, let one of those slip and it's trouble
gamerfan0909  +   70d ago
I believe it's free on PS+ which is a pretty good deal for people wanting to try it out.
Spotie  +   70d ago
When it comes to racers, you can't really SEE how they play. You can only feel it.

Or go by what others who have played the game have said. And, so far, it's been good news.

How can describe what I just saw? Infamous Second Son on wheels... If you've played Infamous Second Son, then you know what i'm talking about.

That second video when the car almost gets rear-ended, damn that looks real. That delay has to have been for this...

Holy Crap!!!

Now this is how you make a Racer! Best weather in a racing game yet! There is no competition. Drive Club is the best looking racer so far this gen.

People who have played it say the driving mechanic is spot on. Sitting somewhere between arcade/sim. You can adjust driving settings in menu, so you can play it how you want.

Sony really do make the best games. Their quality is on another level. Unmatched!!
Fishy Fingers  +   70d ago

snookiegamer  +   70d ago
@DirtyPimp

Pretty incredible huh?

I swear down...sometimes I look at PS4 graphics and wonder how something so small and sleek is pushing those visuals. PS4 was masterfully engineered. It really is the best console available on the market. Period!

Immorals  +   70d ago
Dynamic weather, and drivatar style AI should be the standard for this gen. Damn, we are getting spoiled!
WeAreLegion  +   70d ago
Drivatar? I don't understand why that's important. Can't they just use algorithms to simulate how we would have driven based on our previous racing? I'm not sure why we need drivatars.
Chimichanga  +   69d ago
@WeAreLegion That is exactly what the drivatar system does. It allows your car to race against friends in their single player game with your style of racing. Your single player races are against all your friends' drivatars. On topic for this game, it looks incredible and I may just need to get me a PS4 for all this greatness.

Man... Umm... really...Have no words..I'm just stunned how real it looks.. the atmosphere god dammmmn!!!

I feel like the very first time I saw GT3 on the PS2 wet track at during night, I was stunned.

Evolution just took a huge step forward in the racing genre they just raised the bar to higher level. DAAMMNN
