The highly anticipated Driveclub weather patch is finally live on PlayStation 4 - are you ready to show your skills under rain and snow?
Finally. Looks like this game might have some hope after all! Hope for replay mode soon
So good: http://a.pomf.se/qngvum.gif

Holy Crap is right: https://farm8.staticflickr.... Even plants get wet: http://a.pomf.se/dmdkjx.jpg
I sent my friend this in a txt and he messaged me back "why the f*** are you sending me videos of lightning" not even realizing its a game lol
Wow this looks crazy good. Driveclub is one hell of a looker.

Fuck yeah! Just need to release the PS+ version so I can see for myself! Hope they have begun on a another entry in the Motorstorm series. DC tech + Motorstorm = http://cdn.meme.am/images/8...
Driveclub visually just blows everything else away it seems like at this point. This weather update provides hands-down the best weather effects I've ever seen in a game. Insanely realistic. Love all the reflections in the puddles as you drive. And the way the water reacts on the your windshield to your driving movements and the wiper blades... Incredible.
@RevXM imagine....a ridiculous race in a storm with a lot of mud, big rigs and chaos.....
The weather effects are absolutely jaw dropping! I know people are frustrated with the online aspect of the game (myself included), but everything seems to be working just fine now. Challenges are going out and races are easy to get into. The weather actually changes the way you have to drive. The effects are so significant that Driveclub probably needs to be re-reviewed.
Do you really believe it needs to be re-reviewed for weather? Or are you just excited?
I think his point is it affects the core gameplay experience rather than just being something pretty to see. This addition is significant, there can be no doubt of that. It's very nearly the game it should have been at launch - and it's already awesome since they fixed the online issues. It's so sad that people have/will skip this. Sure they screwed up big time, but anyone who has even the slightest interest in cars/racing should at least play this through SharePlay. Watch your disappointment to revert to excitement!
Games shouldn't get re-reviews unless you want more broken games. (Even tho DC didnt deserve those low scores)
Well, I'm not sure I agree with this. Some games can be improved in a major way by patches, especially MMO games, and their quality can change significantly.
What about the site that lowered it's DC review score after it was revealed the online was broken, shouldn't that be restored? Imo, reviews are for potential buyers don't care that the game was broken at launch. They care about how it plays now. So I don't see how reviews that docked many points for broken features should stand for all time
Agreed. But surely an exception from now and then would reflect more accurately a games true quality, DC is a prime example.
I actually consider that the game's actual launch starts today after this great fix and update The game is now humanly-playable and a great game and I agree with you it should get re-reviewed after this update
Downloading as i type from what ive seen it looks like a show stopper
It is now I guarantee you will look in amazement at your screen from how beautiful and realistic everything looks ;)
Are there any of these DLC events that actually have weather included in this patch? Is it going to feature in the online events straight away? I'll find out for myself this eve, but if anyone knows you can save me from my own impatience :)
From what I played this morning before work, it seems that the weather update is added to any race (original and DLC) as long as "dynamic" is the setting for weather (or a specific weather type is selected).
The article says that it won't be included in any of the existing tour events, but can be included in DLC. I guess I could set up some custom races just to look at it. Hopefully it shows up in some of the online events straight away.
never had the chance to play the game, should I wait? btw, website is working again for me.
Wait for what? +The handling is good, the graphics are good. -The event structure is no-frills, The AI is bad. If you're waiting for the free version... well it might be a while. Maybe try and shareplay it to see if you want to buy it.
Jump in, it's that good. IMO, the best racing game so far this gen. The weather update is amazing, it looks photo realistic. @volkama Have to disagree on the A.I, they have recently tweaked the it and the difference makes a massive difference. This game keeps getting better and better.
As Sniper says Jump in, I agree the best racing game this gen.
I am blown away by the graphics. The weather looks so damn realistic. Nothing touches this beauty.
@Sniper I haven't played it for a couple of weeks, but I will eat my words and my hat if the AI no longer race as a perfect pack following the racing line, and driving it slowly if the player needs to catch up. If they still do that then I will keep my hat, and play online :)
@volkama I'm confused by what you are saying... If the AI is improved you'll jump in and play online?? There isn't AI in online races so that shouldn't be a factor of you playing online.
@Ron, I'm saying if the AI are still bad I'll just play online, for precisely the reason you said. Bad AI doesn't get to ruin an online race. Online is where Driveclub is best imo. That and the hotlaps/time trials if you like that kind of thing.
I always loved the handling, since playing it at Gamescom. It's too bad that there were so many problems at launch, really...The core game isn't nearly as bad as most people now think, it's actually very good
@Volkama Agreed. I've totally caught myself spending 3 hours just playing one 15 second drift trial. I'm playing more single events than tour events lately.
My main problem now is. Should I now get Driveclub for Christmas?
Yes, if you want one driving game, just one, to show off the ps4's capability, realistic graphics and enjoy superb driving dynamics, this has to be it. You won't be dissapointed.
OK, you have twisted my arm, I'm now going to have to get Driveclub. My God, that visual eye candy does look irresistible ; )
7.5/10 at launch, 9-9.5/10 now. With the weather and other fixes, easily the most distinctive, fun, graphically intensive racer around on next gen
O my god , this rein effects are apsolute insene beautiful!
I'm thinking of getting this sometime soon. I want to race people online for the thrills!
did i read that correctly? Mclaren F1 LM dlc? yisss my favorite car off all time <3
Well, guess its time to fire up my free ps plus version and .... oh, wait
The stuff I'm seeing on gamersyde is beautiful! Now give me my ps plus edition!
I doubt we're going to see it on PS+.
I can't see them going back on that promise unless they are offering another game.
I haven't really played it in the past month cause I was playing CoD and now LBP3 . Great game though and I'll hop on it after work since Lbp3 is all sorta bug ridden (might have to wait till next patch to play it) so I can go salivate how pretty DC is :p
It changes the dynamics of the game! and makes it look even more beautiful! How is that even possible! Driveclub just needs some Japanese/American rides and
I've just watch the videos on Gamersyde and ummmmm.... Yea that's some bullsh!t no way it should look and play that damn good smh
I just fired that up. Now the game looked good already, but this is on another level. It looks as close to reality as i've ever seen. Made my day.
I make it rain... I make it rain... I make it rain on dem...
Is anyone else having problems downloading the patch? Bc mines is stuck at 2.5 gbs and won't move no more! Lol
just downloaded it, mine was 1.4gb. ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!! nothing comes close to driveclub, next-gen all day.
Damn wish i was home, instead of work!!!! DC is a great racer and gorgeous.
!!!QUESTION!!!: Does anyone know why there are raindrops on screen during the 3rd person view from behind and if we can somehow disable it?! I love the game but it is really annoying imho... :(
no option to remove, i know what you mean - an option would be good
That's too bad. Thanx for answering though! ;)
quantum theory looks better as does forza horizons, still DC is a looker
You should have gone to supersavers Forza is nowhere close
Forzas good looking but its no where near driveclub. You gotta remember though, one is open world and ones a track racer
Looks like I ordered this just in time, can't wait to check it out later this week.
