Enough talk: Here's Driveclub's fancy weather system in motion

DriveclubEnough talk: Here's Driveclub's fancy weather system in motion photo



Those screenshots of Driveclub back at E3 -- where Evolution Studios demonstrated its dynamic weather system for the PlayStation 4 racer -- looked slick. But they were mere images. A month later, we now have footage of this stuff, albeit short clips that aren't super high resolution.

All the same, the rain, shown below in Driveclub's take on Scotland and Canada, impresses. There's a lot going on behind the scenes to achieve these results. According to art director Alex Perkins, "The cloud cover and conditions you choose will dictate how much snow and rain will fall. The wind direction and speed determines where snow will settle. Then when it stops, the temperature and height of the sun governs how quickly clouds evaporate and roads dry out."

Players will be able to adjust the weather conditions in their races, though specifics on that customization aren't known yet. "We don't want to just offer fixed settings for 'rain' or 'snow,' we want it to be dynamic and exciting," noted Perkins. "We're still working on how best to present this to you and we'll show more closer to launch."

Upcoming Driveclub car will peel your face off

To tease one of the upcoming cars arriving for Driveclub this month, the developers decided to give us a sneak peak via a video showing off the terrifying speed the unnamed four-wheeled machine can do -- at least 242 mph. You got what it takes to hit that kind of speed and not end up a stain on the road? We'll have to see in the coming weeks.  more

Still no sign of the PlayStation Plus Driveclub, but you can play five new tracks for free soon

It really is a shame what happened to Driveclub. Although many games last year fell victim to glitches or tenuous online services, one of Driveclub's biggest selling points was a PlayStation Plus version of the game that pro...more

Maybe Evolution should focus on getting Driveclub to work instead of free DLC

We're rapidly approaching the two-month anniversary of Evolution Studios' Driveclub's release. What makes this significant is that the multiplayer component of the game doesn't consistently work. Two. Months. Later. We won't ...more

Driveclub's PS+ version has been a disaster

For many, Driveclub was one of the crowning exclusives for the PlayStation 4. I remember the first time I saw that presentation by the creepy (yet awesome) guy who looked over every painstaking detail, from the feel of t...more

Driveclub PS Plus Edition delayed until Evolution fixes the full game

Evolution Studios' long-delayed Driveclub released on October 7 but its saga is far from over -- the game still has online issues, and the slice of game for PlayStation Plus subscribers isn't out yet. Sony Worldwide Studios p...more

Driveclub's 1.04 stability update is out, fans still reporting issues

Driveclub's PS+ Edition having issues, delayed a bit

Driveclub's PlayStation Plus concept has been hyped up for quite some time. The idea of getting a piece of retail game at launch, even if it's just a slice, is a pretty sweet deal for Plus owners. But it appears as if there a...more

Review: Driveclub

Driveclub was supposed to be a launch day title for the PS4, but it was delayed for a while, pushing back until now. We got our hands on it at the E3 following the PS4 announcement last year and thought it needed more time in the oven, so a delay was actually welcome. But that was a long delay. So, how much of a difference has a year made? more

Review: Blackhole

There certainly have been a lot of creative 2D platform games releasing over the last couple of months, enough that there seems to be some genuine competition in the genre. If you're finding yourself in a position where it has become difficult to choose, allow me to make it easier.  Get Blackhole. Problem solved.more

Review: Homeworld Remastered Collection

In 1999, I was 11 years old. It was a time when every video game purchase was a gamble. The best you could do was to read a review or watch a grainy, minute-long Quicktime video that you spent an hour to download on 56k while...more

Review: Ironfall: Invasion

Developing a Gears of War-like cover shooter for Nintendo 3DS is unconventional, but that's just what VD-Dev did with Ironfall: Invasion. Featuring both local and online multiplayer, as well as an 11-stage campaign, the project seems fairly ambitious for the handheld, and as you'd expect, there are mixed results. While multiplayer turned out well enough, the campaign is a mess.more
