Hi, my name is Volker Zaiss and I work at Mercedes-Benz. What brings me here is the brand new Mercedes-AMG GT sports car, which I am proud to announce as the latest addition to the DRIVECLUB roster.
Evolution Studios took the wraps off Driveclub’s dynamic weather system at E3 in Los Angeles last month and we were there to see it demoed live. Today we’ve got some new direct feed gameplay clips of the dynamic weather in action and an interview from the game’s Art Director Alex Perkins. This is all from an early demo of the game’s realistic – and fully customizable – weather system that will be included in Driveclub as a free update for all players just shortly after launch.
As you might have noticed in recent trailers, Evolution Studios’ forthcoming PS4 racer Driveclub really is a looker. But until you see it up close it’s hard to appreciate just how much effort the team has gone to ensure it really pushes at the boundaries of gamers’ expectations.
We’ve all been there. You’re tearing round the last lap in, say, Gran Turismo or Need For Speed, defending a narrow lead over the chasing pack, when your concentration slips for a second and you find your car buried in a hedge. With the race all but lost and any rewards snatched away, it’s understandable that throwing a quick tantrum and furiously jabbing Options > Quit Race can be an instinctive reaction.
If you’ve been keeping track of our recent DRIVECLUB videos – in particular the 4TheSense clip above – you should hopefully have twigged that developer Evolution Studios is hell-bent on delivering the most technically sophisticated console driving game on the market. Its visuals and gameplay systems obviously play a huge part in achieving that goal, but there’s another, less-trumpeted area in which the team are achieving some extraordinary things: audio.
Driveclub is a game PlayStation fans are likely already pretty familiar with. Originally slated as a PS4 launch title, the socially connected racer has shifted to an October 7th, 2014 release date. But aspiring drivers needn’t fear: the developers at Evolution Studios are making good use of this extra time.
