Recently, an interesting DriveClub gameplay, which demonstrates a 3-minutes long race on a really cool car Savage Rivale GTR-S in Scotland, has been presented.
The sense of speed is real.
What you don't really see in the web videos is that the screen starts to vibrate and shake subtly the faster you go. Its a nice touch
What I don't like is that you lose points for a collision when someone decides to crash into you. But I suppose you can only do so much with an extra years work. That being said, I'm glad PS+ users don't have to pay full price, but get an upgrade option. Has allowed me to get the full game for next to nothing thanks to birthday gift cards.
Yeah, the sense of speed is real. A must buy.
This is a decent racer, not a forza imo but still good. Sorry, not bashing this is the only footage I've seen so far. How many tracks will there be at release, have they said yet? I like racers, they have a great hit it n quit it fun factor.
Full Game - 55 Tracks, 50 Cars. Free Version - 11 Tracks, 10 Cars.
Nice incentive to buy the game:) Thanks Luke.
The speed of them load times is also real. Damn this game loads fast. Love it.
Rear facing camera is a touch! The game is really fast paced which I love. Which means more losses for me because, for some reason, when it comes to racing games, I have the attention span of a goldfish on crack.
What happened to the graphics O_o? This looks significantly worse than what they advertised with. =(
Has Evolution simply NOT sent out any review copies of the game yet? I like the praise it's been getting, but it's a little strange, is all.
It's under review embargo. They should start popping up tomorrow. They are sending them out, because I have one. :)
I heard they were supposed to be popping up today.
@DarXyde The review embargo ends at 9am EST. I'm also hearing some say they're more impressed with the handling and gameplay than the graphics which is staggering.
That SOUNDS like a small thing, the handling impressions I mean. But if *people are truly more impressed with that than the graphics, that is really saying a lot. Because graphically, it's a showcase for current-gen. At least the dreaded first two teething years. Damn impressive.
It feels like the PGR games which is great.
This is easy the best looking racer ever. Period. If the deliverance and handling are on par with the graphics as you say and as this newly surfaced video suggests, then Sony truly has em on the ropes with a genre in its pocket.
I logged on to N4G yesterday, and 4 of the top 5 stories were footage from Driveclub. 3 of them had the same article image as well. Beats flamebait I suppose.
TitanFall and Destiny had way more articles before the release. I guess you didn't have problem with that.... This a PS4 game so we need to bash it on every everything!
Eh? I haven't once bashed Driveclub. I haven't played it, but it is evidently a pretty game and I like Evolution Studios previous efforts so this should be solid. I am in the article because I bought a PS4 today, and I am wondering whether Driveclub will be worth buying (or just downloading the plus version). It was a simple observation that there are lots of "here is some more footage!" articles, and they generate a surprising amount of N4G heat.
@Volkama I'd try the PS+ version first if I was you. No reason not to at least give it a try first.
@The_infected that makes sense at this point. My interest in the full game was mostly sparked by the fact that it was the best package available on Amazon (£349.99 for the black or white console with driveclub). I have since gone for an Amazon Warehouse deal, a PS4 with Infamous, but with damaged packaging. £270. I wanted Infamous anyway, and I don't have much room to store the packaging so it's a pretty damn good deal :)
And also: "I just bought: 'Knack (PS4)' by Sony www.amazon.co.uk Mankind must turn to an unlikely hero named Knack to protect them from a dangerous new threat. The unassuming Knack stands at a mere three feet tall, but thanks to the power of mysterious ancient " Because screw reviews and popular opinion.
@sam889 If anything it was a bash at N4G..
Wait....you log out of N4G?
Not often. I miss the community too much.
Just got car sickness
Hype! A few more days, fellow Playstationer!
It releases tonight at midnight in NA.
It's 3am EST which sucks. I wish it was 12am here also.
@The_Infected Same here, and I work in the morning so I won't even get to play it until I get home that night...
Im guessing the Full version releases tonight??, but when does the PS+ version release?
@andibandit I think the PS+ version comes out when the PSN update happens.
Looks great. :) BTW I was surprised that it wasn't from Dualshockers. Glad to see other sites paying attention to this game.
Oh cool, didn't realize there was actual race tracks in the game. Will be a good change up from the more scenic ones.
The circuits are pretty well designed as well.
I am excited for some Circuit racing. Good work. Hopefully they could add some real life track and this title would be even better.
That's what GT is for :) I like driving on tracks I've never driven before, especially when they're well designed.
I would prefer them to add more locations. I want to see some stages in northern Italy or the south coast of France. Really nail home that best driving roads in the world feel that Driveclub has.
My biggest fear is that it will be too difficult to be enjoyable. Besides this video I haven't seen many more of someone actually winning a race. I almost get frustrated just looking at the videos lol. And this is from a guy who's finished Dark Souls and thinks Shadow of Mordor is fairly easy.
Judging by early adopters it gets harder the more you progress, just like the Motorstorm games. When you approach the end you'll really need a few tries for most events to find the perfect line and braking points. It's said to be enjoyable though, not that it feels like a grind.
It does look challenging but I've seen several races won on Twitch over the last couple of days.
Motorstorm wasn't easy. I would expect the same from DC.
*mr. Burns voice* excellent
Can't wait to fish tail people in this...
Cant wait to do my signature hairpin turn..... Reduce speed from 250mph to 40, by slamming into opponent...glide thru the turn with grace, watch opponent doing rollovers in the rear window
Slingshot engage man! Shake and bake!
I tell you what Evolution should add to Driveclub at some point. A virtual showroom. Where you can actually walk around the car in first person and then get in it and just look around. I have been starting time trials with the HUD off and just stopping and looking around the interior view. It is staggeringly detailed. Also, Legend difficulty is stupidly hard. I have finished last in every single race.
Still no reviews... I need some damn reviews already! Not sure if I want this or horizon 2 so can we get into the content end of the game already?
Just get the free ps+ edition and see if you like the game yourself. Much better way than any review you could ever read.
Ha! I completely forgot we get a free version! Sweet.... Thanks! Demos are so rare now I have to rely on reviews sometimes, especially with these two racers delivering some greatness. I plan to get both just not sure which one yet so I need to know a lil more about dc other than graphics, I already know what fh2 brings to the table.
Buy forza horizon 2 and download the free version of drive club.
Depends on what kind of car games you like, If you like open-world driving games with events, go with FH2, if prefer a track-based racer with eye popping graphics go with DC. Or as others have said buy FH2 and get the PS+ version of DC
After playing FH2 I can honestly say it will appeal to both! It's so much fun, but still holds enough simulation for it to feel real. DC looks scary (I have both a X1 and PS4) and honestly, I kinda wanted DC to fail just so X1 got a win but looking at all the videos etc I am not so sure haha, DC looks insane and the sense of speed is some of the best (if not the best) that I have ever seen in a racing game! I will definitely be getting the PS+ version to try it out!
I like both kinds of racers.. I would just like to know what else dc brings to the table besides what we see, if dc is light on content then I will buy fh2 first but If dc has good content a long with those awesome graphics I will buy dc first regardless of the free ps+ Edition. I would just like to know more about the game than seeing it at this point. I would like to save some eye candy for when I play it I don't need constant videos on how it looks :(
I can't comment on DC but I can tell you that FH2 is ridiculous fun, I just felt really happy playing it! I do think FH2 will bring more to the table overall (I'm bound to say that after my initial comment but I do genuinely think that) DC will be a very streamlined simulation racer with beautiful tracks and cars but that is what it will be, which is fine, that is what it is! Forza is all open, you still have the tracks but they aren't restricted - if you want to cut corners you can (although most races do have checkpoints, to stop you just driving diagonally to the finish line!) you also have the exploration aspect and the side missions called bucket lists, I've done 2 so far. One was drive a koenigsegg like you stole it, the other was race the sun in a Ferrari - both lots of fun! Looking forward to trying DC (on friday for me! UK)
@Xb1ps4- I feel your pain! Too many racers this fall. I was already struggling with buying DC vs The Crew, and I ended up deciding I'll get both.
I think you need both. If i had both console i would have both. But then again i love everything racing.
Who ever was at the controls was driving the hell outta that car! One more day baby...
Where in the world are the reviews at??
In the same precise location as Carmen San Diego.
Lol, showing your age*! ;^P *I suppose I am too...
Is there a time trail mode in Drive Club?
There sure is. You can race your ghost and such. :^)
There are rules to showing it early like having to use only high-end cars so they have to unlock the cars first before they can so a review the so have to wait tell the reviewers get far enough in the game that was imposed by sony. don't believe me go to gamespot here is the link they say it in the beginning of the video http://www.gamespot.com/vid...
