Driveclub's Dynamic Weather Update Completely Changes The Game

Mike Fahey of Kotaku writes "Two days ago I was bored with Driveclub."

"Today each race is exhilarating, often terrifyingly so, and all that's changed is the weather."

I agree, it adds so much and just amazes

moldybread1019d ago

i really want to try this game out, visually it looks fantastic

kayoss1019d ago

I got this game when it first came out. Last night i played it with the storm. My wife walked in and literally asked me, "Can we watch another movie, I dont like fast and furious.". I was WTF? This is not a movie this is a video game. She thought i was lying.

UltraNova1018d ago

Fasts and Furious doesn't even come close visually.

Yeah I said that.

kayoss1018d ago

I'm glad you said that because I agree.

It sure does:

I held off on buying the game because of the technical issues. But I think I may have to bite now, the weather update just looks too good to pass up. Some of these GIFs and YT videos I've been seeing on GAF are unreal. It's a literal game changer.

Dlacy13g1019d ago

well... in theory you should be able to test it out free with a PS+ version if Sony keeps their word on releasing it eventually.

GarrusVakarian1019d ago

Nah, I think I'll just buy the full game. I know I want it, and have wanted it since it launched, but didn't for reasons stated above.

Although I think I may wait a little longer, maybe until some of the free DLC releases. GTA V takes up almost all of my gaming time lately anyway. :P

This weather update sure makes me excited to finally play it, though. Looks incredible.

I say go for it and get the game. The weather is the best I've ever seen and the online and challenges work now. Also their going to add weather to the online proportion of the game today. Soon after the element tour will be available so you can play single player with weather.

I got a refund back when I got the game and now I got it again and couldn't be happier. This is an amazing game now that it works. The weather just brought it to a whole nother level.

Farsendor11019d ago

the offline has worked wonderfully from the start, online features might not have worked but single player/offline has been great.

GTgamer1019d ago

This update made me buy the season Pass #Noregrets this game blows me away and the rain affects the way your car handles and the visibility GOOD GOD that visibility is amazing that mist that winsheild streaks whooooooo boyyyyy lemme tell you picking the best looking games of this generation is gonna be hard.

GameDev11019d ago

I am right there with you, I was meant to get it this Dec as I was waiting for weather and photomode

Now it is all here with online on track, free cars and tracks added plus free dlc. I am ready for Driveclub and The Order 1886 in Februrary

Bathyj1019d ago

Ive mainly held off because I'm a single player gamer and I thought it might be to online centric for me, but I always wanted to try it on the Plus version.

Its just looks to gorgeous now, I really want to give it a go. I might pick it up if I see it on sale.

The other reason I'm bummed on racing games is no Logitech support, but theres not much I can do about that.

GarrusVakarian1019d ago (Edited 1019d ago )

I heard it was $35 on Amazon.

Assuming you're from the US, that is.

Farsendor11019d ago

If you like racing games, time trials, races and drifting single player has had all of that from the start.

RebelWAC1019d ago

The game has a great single player mode - a story. The multiplayer aspect provides challenges. You don't have to race others but you can and probably will spend hours trying to beat the best target time on your favorite track, or the players that finished milliseconds before you.

I love this game

Mobusaki1018d ago

@Lukas_Japonicus Thanks!! I picked it up from Amazon when I read your comment. :)

GameSpawn1018d ago

Unfortunately Evo went with Thrustmaster for wheels. Hopefully Evo will add support for Logitech in a patch, but it may not be very likely.

Thank god, Polyphony prefers Logitech wheels as Gran Turismo demands a wheel setup.

Im interested in giving this a go now. Any thoughts on a good racing wheel with gears etc for this?

looks like a great addition for the game.

Kingdomcome2471019d ago

"Just when I think you can't get anymore beautiful, you go and do something like this..., and totally re-beautify yourself!" I still haven't played this as I'm not really big on racing games per say, but I really want to give it a go.

TomahawkX1019d ago

love that the wipers actually wipe away the water and you can see the streaks and everything
