"No more delays" for Driveclub

GRTV talked to art director Alex Perkins about the upcoming Driveclub on PS4:

"We hope that people will download the PlayStation Plus [edition] really enjoy the gameplay experience and the actual connectivity of Driveclub. And then realise the stunning beauty and the brilliance of the cars can only be expanded by buying the whole game. It gives a nice solid format for people to start interacting with and actually using the challenge system and doing the connectivity. So it should give people a really give intro to how Driveclub is and hopefully spur them on to start challenging, competing from the extra locations and cars they get when they purchase the whole game."

Surely, there will be no more delays?

"No. No. We're improving the game past launch. But there is no more delays, we're hitting the deadline. And it's going to be beautiful."

NO weather at launch and only 50 cars. No customization. If they had another delay. PS fans would revolt. This game was supposed to release almost a year ago.

What are you trying to accomplish with all that negativity?

Bonkerz1249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

I wouldnt say just negativity, hes kinda just be honest. The game truly is launching pretty half assed, barely any customization, very little cars, no weather, exactly what did an entire year delay accomplish if its still launching half baked?

Go away!

The most visually impressive racer I have seen, just un imaginable how they could achieve it on a console. The impressions from this years hands on at e3 were glowing as well from a racing aspect. So stoked to be able to play it soon. eye candy + racing :'D

Making himself feel better.

@ bonkers

You mean half baked like Forza 5, which was rushed to market? With cardboard crowds, baked lighting, poor physics, muddy textures, half the content as Forza 4, oh, and no weather effects at all. Hardly anything next gen about it and yet lacks the content of its predecessor, that's half baked.

You seem to be one of the simpletons that can't comprehend that this is not a racing sim like Forza or GT. It's a more accessible racer, akin to Need for Speed, Ridge Racer, PGR, etc. Hundreds of cars and tons of customization hardly seems accessible for someone just looking to pick a car and race.

You, and many Xbox fanatics, fail to understand the difference between a meal being half baked and a meal being a different platter.

FamilyGuy1249d ago

You act as though this were some sequel or franchise IP that had all that stuff in its previous title. This is a brand new IP, number of cars, number of tracks, levels of customization, etc have no comparison. This is the first DriveClub game, you act like all racing games should have the same number of cars, tracks etc.

InTheLab1249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

Negative but true. Game was supposed to launch Nov 2013 and they still couldn't implement weather or customization?


Dude come on. How is this any better than Forza 5 when you have the devs telling you it's coming after launch.

It's bulls*** for Forza and Bulls*** for this game.

@ inthelab

Not sure why they couldn't implement weather pre launch, maybe they decided to add it too late into development, or maybe they did not have enough time after making all the other tweaks. I have to disagree with you though. Had it not been obvious that they made a lot of progress since delaying the game, then yes, not adding weather would have been bull. But that's not the case. It's obvious they made improvements after the delay, so in this case a delay was a positive thing (better to delay a game than release a rushed product IMO). Not to mention they are adding it pretty quickly after launch, and the effects are insane.

As for the customization situation. I'm not going to knock the game for Evolutions decision to make the game more accessible, as the developer it's their right to give the game it's own identity. They made it quite clear the direction they want to take this game. It's not a racing sim, not meant to compete with GT but rather co exist with it. Not every racer needs to be complex. Why judge a game for something it's not meant to be?

What a joke. Just release it in 2016 and be done with it.

Kurisu1250d ago

Totally getting the Drive Club bundle. I want to own the full game :)

Can't wait to finally get my hands on PS4.

N0gg1nsh0tz1249d ago

Leftgrade! /s

Also, people who think like this need to go to sleep earlier, very clearly an upgrade :)

Game looks stellar.

r2oB1249d ago

Are you referring to your mental capacity? Clearly you do not grasp what downgrade means.

TKCMuzzer1249d ago

Oh he does, he managed to downgrade his bubbles to one.....

sGIBMBR1249d ago

Does anyone know the differences between the PS+ version and retail?

Kurisu1249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

PlayStation Plus Edition which comes with one location (India), 11 tracks, 10 cars and access to all game modes.

The full DRIVECLUB experience will give you access to all five locations, 55 tracks, 50 cars and all 50 tour events

The full game is definitely the way here!

sGIBMBR1249d ago

Yeah me too... I think I was always going to get the full version anyway just to support the dev's.

I was just curious as to what the differences are.

Clover9041249d ago

I believe that the ps plus version will have all the different modes and social experiences, but only a few cars and tracks. Think they said that there will be a discount for ps plus members upgrading to the full edition.
