"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." (Driveclub, PS4)

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?
Bonkerz  +   102d ago
@XiNarutoUzumaki
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?

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

@ 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.
FamilyGuy  +   102d 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.
InTheLab  +   102d ago
Negative but true. Game was supposed to launch Nov 2013 and they still couldn't implement weather or customization?

@R20B

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?

Does anyone know the differences between the PS+ version and retail?
Kurisu  +   102d 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

http://blog.eu.playstation....

The full game is definitely the way here!

Rockstar  +   102d ago
Full version for me.
sGIBMBR  +   102d 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.
Clover904  +   102d 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.
MegaRay  +   102d ago
Duh!

Drive Club is going to be destroyed by Forza Horizon 2.
MysticStrummer  +   102d ago
I wonder why XB fans shy away from comparing their open world sim with Project Cars? Instead they'd rather compare FH2 to an arcade/sim hybrid with traditional tracks. Just one more odd disconnect from the XB crowd. PS4 racing fans will have the best of both worlds.

what about wheel support!?
TKCMuzzer  +   102d ago
Yep,all the cars have wheels.... :)
mt  +   102d ago
it would be ridiculous if they delay Driveclub again.
LamerTamer  +   102d ago
No they won't delay it again. Release now, patch later right? Will the game be complete or not riddled with bugs on launch? That is the real question.
LamerTamer  +   102d ago
"No. No. We're improving the game past launch. "

In other words they sell you an incomplete game and then require you to connect to the internet to get the rest. This practice sucks. You never truly own the full game. When your HDD gets full or breaks imagine how long it will take to re-download hundreds of gigs of patches for all of these games, that is if they haven't been taken down. If/when they do take the patches down you are stuck with an incomplete/buggy game forever on the disc.

Better than some other devs who make you pay for what was missing.
AnEwGuY  +   102d ago
Yeah...it'll release "on time", then be in beta form for another year or so after. We've seen this before on another Sony platform...
