The development of DriveClub continues to go "from strength to strength", SCEE has told VideoGamer.com while responding to yesterday's reports highlighting the recent changes at Evolution Studios.
Great to hear. The game looks better and better every time they show it so im really eager to see what it looks like now. I wonder what all the naysayers who tried to spread FUD around after the Evolution lay-off's have to say about "spectacular progress"? I'm expecting a summer release. I'm guessing either June or July, but if it comes out before then that would be awesome. My hype has died down a little for this, but i know as soon as i see some new gameplay i will go nuts, just like i did when they released those short clips months ago.
Cool, I thought they'll announce release date at E3 If they do earlier, I'm happy !
Thank you for the link to drive club's music track. The track is indeed electrifying. I can feel the wind blowing through. I can't wait to play this. +bub
Just listened to the link you posted...i don't listen to that type of music normally, but it sounds PERFECT for a racing game. Speeding through a mountain pass with that track playing....racing game bliss. Ughh....hurry up and release the game!!!
I wonder how racing games sound to the Metal Gear Rising soundtrack.
lol you know you could have edited your first comment :) and added the gif OT: hope we still get the ps plus version as i want to try this game out first and if i like it buy the full version.
well the site messed up and put two of the same comments for me so i had to change one. i wish i had the ability to delete my comment that would be nice.
i hope so
Driveclub will put shame to the devs that made forza 5.
lol calm down..
@BelkingofSony Driveclub doesn't have to do that, although I will say Forza 5 was a stripped down new gen version of Forza 4 with less cars, less tracks, no weather, and still no day night cycle, so that bar to reach isn't all that high with Driveclub offering night driving and weather. It's still ridiculous to me that Forza doesn't have night racing or weather. How can that game be taken seriously without basic effects is a real question. Gamers will enjoy Driveclub but let's be honest...we're all waiting to see GT7, hopefully something about GT7 at E3. Please.
I'll be interested to finally see an apples to apples comparison of the same genre on Xbox One and PS4. Forza 5 is 1080p and 60 frames per second. However, Turn 10 are accused of downgrading Forza 5 in order to maintain those specs. So, when Drive Club is released, we'll see what a 1080p/60FPS PS4 driving game can do in the effects department. Unless, of course, Drive Club's frame rate is massively downgraded in order to add special effects. If that's the case, then we'll know once and for all that there's little difference between the two.
I agree I am more so looking forward to the driveclub gran turismo next gen competition.
Seriously? You just had to mention a Microsoft game didn't you? Are you that concerned about drive clubs success.. Forza 5 is a good game, that runs at 1080P/60FPS. It even has narration from Top Gears Richard Hammond. The engine sounds, and track replication are identical to its real life counterpart. Stop being a troll, geesh...
There is no way I am getting Driveclub ever, not with Forza 5 already and the looming of Forza Horizon 2. I just don't feel confident in a game that was supposed to be a launch title and went back to the drawing board.
I'd feel less confident in a game that released with minimal content and substantial downgrades all for the sake of reaching a few performance benchmarks. Frankly, I'd rather the game was delayed and made better. But if you like buying incomplete titles, be my guest.
To be honest, if you own both consoles, which I think you do, then why would you choose one over the other? Last gen I owned a 360 and ps3, all exclusive racing games got bought on their respective consoles, maybe you are not a big racing fan, but the fact that you play forza says otherwise, you confuse me sometimes :-/
Forza was incomplete and rushed heavily to make launch,it didn't matter if it was ready or not to ms. #driveclub is completely opposite getting the needed time to polish it up so it 's ready as a full product. That's a huge difference between ms & sony.
I hope they have gone the Arcade route since we already have GT for our Driving simulator.
I hope it's in-between sim and arcade....but more on the arcade side. GT and Project CARS will fill the sim gap for me.
It should be interesting with project cars announcing morpheus support and Gt as well, driveclub may not be a huge game. Launch would have been perfect timing but hey its psplus free, cant lose
Yeah it looks more arcade like need for speed.Interesting to see how project cars does morpheus. The rumors stated #driveclub was delayed for adding morpheus into it among other things and polish.
@-Foxtrot It's a crossover between arcade and sim. It's not 100% arcade or 100% sim! it's sort of best of both worlds.
Yep, seems somewhat similar to Forza Horizons.
Simcade - I do believe I coined that genre here and now.
Yup I agree, I would love an arcade mode as well as the full simulation style. I sometimes play a really really old game called Outrun on my HTC, it's made by Sega?? anyways, it's just 'fun' so a casual mode for Drive Club would be totally cool:)
Im hoping it plays like pgr4, by far the best arcade racer last gen, I know they have some old pgr staff so hopefully they had a bit of input on the handling, really cant wait to see what they have been doing as each time we have caught a glimpse there has been a noticeable jump in quality, cant wait :-)
Awesome! I am so glad!
oh cool , i will wait for reviews.
Meh. It's free with PS+! But yeah, I agree otherwise.
If you have a PS4 then you could always just watch a livestream and base your opinion off that. I don't see why anyone still listens to reviewers in this day and age where gameplay videos and livstreams are so easily accessible. They are completely redundant imo. Individuals with completely different tastes and perception telling you why you should or should not buy a game....it's silly. If you want, i'll be happy to stream it for you on release as i will be getting this day one ;) @Dark Lmao, whatever. I just took a look at your comment history and realized you're just a stealth troller, silly me. "Development hell"....smh, such unwarranted drama and hyperbole. I doubt you were ever considering getting this anyway, so you go ahead and wait for those reviews, lol. I bet you were one of the people spreading FUD around yesterday.
- The game has been delayed and stuck in development hell - no new info in long time - the Studio hit by layoffs - game director leaves the Studio yeah i'm willing to listen to reviewers this time around. Edit: there is a difference between trolling and telling facts my friend.
"there is a difference between trolling and telling facts my friend." Yeah, there is. But judging from your comment history, you are doing the former. Don't even attempt to pull the wool over anyone's eyes here, your comment history makes it painfully obvious that you are a stealth troller and FUD spreader. You have SCEE themselves saying that development hasn't been affected and that the game is making spectacular progress and that it's still on track for a 2014 release......i think i'll listen to them and not you. "- The game has been delayed and stuck in development hell " Delayed once. As for "development hell", that is pure BS and you know it, how can you even say that, what are you basing that off?. The game looks better and better every time it's shown to the public and "Spectacular progress" doesn't sound like dev hell to me, lol. "- no new info in long time " They are working on the game, they don't need to give us constant updates. No news isn't always bad news, evident again by "spectacular progress". "- the Studio hit by layoffs " Yet the development of the game hasn't been affected by those lay-off's, you know this and you continue to spread FUD....because you're a troll. "- game director leaves the Studio " And now they have a new one. The game Director isn't the be all and end all of a game. There are still tons of other members making the game. A game doesn't just collapse when a director leaves.....which AGAIN is evident by "spectacular progress". Try harder next time.
@Dark a 6 month delay is not development hell.
Lukas, We're all(yes you to) guilty of a lil stealth trolling!
Dark, get something called a life. You're really not fooling anyone. You know, let's pretend that no other company has delayed a game before, right? You trolls are getting really stale as of late.
Bet this doesn't release until the Fall (October is my guess)
GIFs to remind you of the epicness http://gifs.gamersyde.com/g... http://gifs.gamersyde.com/g... http://gifs.gamersyde.com/g... http://a.pomf.se/5Zl0.gif http://a.pomf.se/s986r.gif http://i.minus.com/ibdFRTl2...
The 2nd and last GIF's get me everytime. Amazing. Hype rekindled.
Hype meter back to 100% capacity. I just love the lighting in this game. My goodness are those beautiful God Rays used in the game. On the last gif, when the car to the right passes the player up and his rear lights illuminated the players dashboard is insane! The second one is of note as well when it comes to the advance lighting effects being used. I just love how the chrome accents inside the care literally reflects light, cars, landscape; EVERYTHING!
Nice Gifs. looks awesome. The second part of your N4G gamer tag is Even Better! @ Lukas If someone is stealth trolling and stealth attacking other people here its you bro. These are discussions forums no need to attack others, although you have quite excellent writing skills.
Any evidence of those claims? Hmm? Quotes? Thought not. Stealth trolling is when you troll something or someone while trying to make it sound like a legit comment....i do NOT do that. Why would i call people out on that only to turn around and do it myself? That would be hypocritical. Calling people trolls and FUD spreaders is not an "attack", haha, that's a simple observation. Man....if that's an attack to you then i would hate to see your reaction to actual, abusive attacks. The very fact you are calling ME out and not the people spreading FUD without even reading past the article header is testament to how valid your claims and how biased you are. The only reason you and your kind make those accusations is because you have no decent counter argument, so you resort to that sort of low level, *attempted* belittling. And thanks for the compliment, i do try.
That game is sexy. Very.
It is good to finally hear some news for this game. Even with the departure of the director that the studio is working hard to deliver a high quality game. A lot of people see that once the director left the game would be cancelled or other things. So it is reassuring to know that a release date is imminent. A side note i would like to add that i was unable to talk about is although all the recent news about layoffs hitting Sony's first party is worrisome i look to Naughty Dog as an example of it's not that bad. Naughty Dog lost its founders but with the right people in place the studio is striving more than ever & has grown to be one of the best in the world. Yes it sucks that good prominent people are no longer part of Sony Worldwide Studios it's not the end of the world as i have read in some comments here on N4G.
show some gameplay! excited though to hear its coming along and what about the last guardian?
Forza all that fake lighting and cardboard crowds will be put to shame when driveclub arrives
yes let us compare a launch 60fps game to a 30 fps game that's been delayed.. at least wait till the game comes out.. with all the recent downgrades who knows what could happen
I think its safe to say that Driveclub has already surpassed Forza 5 in many aspects if not at all. But I will say that Forza 5 was a rush job just to have something on Xbox One launch! I expect a better job from Turn10 on Forza 6! The first 4 were great no reason it cant be again!
The problem with your theory is all the downgrades have been xbone games, no ps4 games have suffered that fate.
If Drive Club arrives at 1080p AND 60FPS, then yes, it could put Forza to shame. If Drive Club's frame rate is massively downgraded to add visual effects, then we'll know there's little difference between the two.
Hey I wonder how many more excuses you guys can come up with to sweep the shortcomings of forza 5 under the rug before drive club releases and reasons to downplay the massive quality jump compared to each other? Hmmmm
Dude, if you have a XB1 and actually play Forza 5, you'll know it is a great game. It is not only about graphics which is absolute awesome regardless of the claimed slight downgrade, but the handling, the fluidity, the new rumble trigger feel when breaking and making sharp turns, and the Drivitar system based on other players own driving habits is what makes it the best in the series thus far. It is a launch title and no doubt some contents were cut short but it is going to take a lot from Drive club to beat the veteran racing studio, Turn 10 latest effort. Frankly, I see little in that happening.
The graphics took a "slight" downgrade??? That is by far one if the biggest understatements I have seen this year the other one that a joint first is the "ps4 is slightly more powerful" Forza 5 might be a good game to some people but the graphics downgrade is way way worse than slight for example cardboard cut out crowds , need I say more?
My favorite feature in this game is you don't have to necessarily join or form a club! you can play solo if you want according to some websites i been to. So don't think you have to join or form a club to progress through the game! you can even race for a club to!
Yeah it feels like a MMO for driving games. You can play solo for as long as you want but if you really want to get the full experience joining a 'guild/club' opens up even more possibilities.
so... the pre-e3 leak was real? (driveclubdemo (theyll show it with the release for sure) , VR) we can expect some u4 news soon? :D
I'm wondering if they'll manage to unlock the 1080p 60frps achievement. One can surely hope for it!
I'm glad this game was delayed. I feel like the launch games were rushed. I want the devs to take their time and do it right the first time.
Best news this week! My life as a gamer has back its meaning :D
So excited for this game...craving a racing game on PS4! I like the idea behind it as well...social racing game with car clubs. And solo racing as well, day one for me...I can't wait! Don't know how true it is...but I heard there will be an app, that will allow us to set up race wars at different times, day or night. If so...that's freakin awesome!
I love racing games, so I'm going to pick this up for sure.
Dammit. I want this game more than I want a million dollars right meow. Okay not really, but you get what I mean. Been waiting for over a year. My body is ready.
Cant wait for a racing game for the ps4!
