In the Club
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?  read feature

Watch day turn to night in this Driveclub video


What a thrilling headline

For the most part, racing games are astoundingly pretty. Driveclub seems as if it will uphold this standard, as this gameplay video looks great. Take a trip in an Audi R8 V10 Plus (thanks, video description!) and watch as the sun calmly sets behind the mountains. Just kidding, keep your eyes on the road, fool.
