DriveClub Tunnel Lighting Updated To Look Better, Included In Future Update; Twitch Streams Now Online

PS4-DriveClub-610x400

DriveClub is one of the most impressive looking racing game so far. It has realistic graphics with weather simulation, that we have yet to see in any racing game so far. The game has spent a long time in development and is finally going to be released this October.

It seems like the game is already out in the hands of some lucky users, and they have started streaming it straight from their PS4. If you want to watch such a stream, you can go to Twitch directly to take a look at them.

DriveClub director Paul Rustchynsky recently revealed that they have already improved the Tunnel Lighting effect in DriveClub, and we might see it in a future update. This was in response to a user on gaming forum NeoGAF, who shared a DriveClub gif showcasing its realistic simulation of driving through a Tunnel. Check this GIF below.

DriveClub will be released on the PlayStation 4 on October 8th, 2014.

What do you think about the graphics of DriveClub? Are you excited for it? Let us know in the comments below.

      Stop spreading fanboy lies, hatred, and FUD, it accomplishes nothing. It’s not healthy to hate pieces of plastic and people who like playing video games on them. It’s sad that you hate good video games for being on the wrong piece of plastic. You are sick and need help.

      Driveclub got great gameplay impressions at E3 2014, Gamescom 2014, and the recent beta test.
      There
      are tons of positive impressions of Driveclub’s gameplay readily
      available on the internet yet people keep spreading FUD and blind hate
      about it.

      PS4 has many great games that gamers love. That’s why it’s 11+ million in sales and growing. Sony’s large number of well funded 1st parties will ensure PS4 has a ton of great AAA exclusives, as many or more than PS3.

      1st/2nd party studios include Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, Naughty Dog, SCE Bend, SCE San Diego, SCE Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Pixel Opus, Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge, SCE London, Media Molecule, Ready at Dawn, Quantic Dream, etc. Sony’s 1st party studios are working on several unannounced AAA PS4 games. Expect big announcements in 2015.

      According to listwar PS4 has 123 games right now. PS4/Sony exclusives 2015: The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank Redux, Uncharted 4, Tearaway Unfolded, Until Dawn, Persona 5, more.

      PS4 has many features including media with more on the way in firmware 2.0. PS4 has plenty of support from Sony and developers.

      PSN is hugely improved and Sony is continually investing more into it. PSN handled the Destiny launch just fine.

      Both Forza and Driveclub are good racing games, it’s only fanboys blindly hating one or the other.

      PS4 could easily handle Forza Horizon 2 and upgrade the graphics due to PS4’s more powerful hardware. Driveclub would have to be downgraded to run on Xbox.

      There will be no parity if PS4’s stronger hardware is being pushed. In essentially every way, the PS4’s hardware is more powerful than the XBO’s. If they’re the same resolution, PS4 will have a framerate or visual effects advantage, or its stronger hardware isn’t being pushed.

      Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +540 GFlops (40% greater) or more (1.3TF to 1.84TF), +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support (volatile bit and onion+ gpu cache bypass bus), better performing CPU, faster unified memory, and less OS overhead.

      No amount of API updates is going to make up for that hardware gap.

      Exclusively 1080p 60 FPS console games on PS4: MGS V, CoD Ghosts, FFXIV, Tomb Raider, MLB The Show 14, Resogun, Trials Fusion, Diablo 3 (higher framerate), Project Cars, Metro Redux, TLOU Remastered, more.

      Sony’s ICE team, Naughty Dog, and Santa Monica Studios will fully utilize PS4’s stronger hardware, so it will stay ahead in graphics performance.

      Driveclub, The Order, Uncharted 4, etc. are technically superior as they run on more powerful hardware. Normal, unbiased, sane people recognize PS4 exclusive games look better, which makes sense given they’re running on more powerful hardware.

      PS4 is selling on price/performance, better PR and global appeal, long term 1st party support, large number of 1st party studios, more total games and dev support including Japanese and indie devs, wider variety of games, improved PSN since the PS3 days, and PS+ value. It’s seen as the best console for multiplatform games.

      All 3 consoles have good exclusive games, and pros and cons, it’s only fanboys blindly hating one or the other.

      As expected by anyone knowledgeable and sane, tier 2 launches are doing almost nothing for Xbox sales. It’s sad this is the result after 10+ months of “wait for Xbox to launch in more countries” from fanboys. Some big plates of crow are ready to be served.

      PS4 and Xbox sales can be compared right now and PS4 is outselling Xbox more than 2:1. PS4 will outsell Xbox in China like every other country on the planet, and Xbox sales in China will do little. PS4 is keeping its 1st place in global sales.

      Sony is making a profit on PS4 hardware, the gaming division is well funded, profitable and in an overall net profit. Sony is not broke or going bankrupt.

      Sony has been good about honesty with the PS4 for the most part. They have much better PR this gen than PS3, that’s one reason it’s selling so well. No lies were made selling Destiny, it’s a good game that is selling well.

      Driveclub got great gameplay impressions at E3 2014, Gamescom 2014, and the recent beta test.

      There are tons of positive impressions of Driveclub’s gameplay readily available on the internet yet people keep spreading FUD and blind hate about it.

      Stop spreading fanboy lies, hatred, and FUD, it accomplishes nothing. It’s not healthy to hate pieces of plastic and people who like playing video games on them. It’s sad that you hate good video games for being on the wrong piece of plastic.

      Driveclub is channeling Project Gotham Racing, one of Xbox’s most beloved arcade racers. Those games didn’t have any customization beyond paint jobs and you know what? They were still amazing. It’s an arcade racer, different from sim racers, it doesn’t necessarily need fine tuning customizations. Not inherently better or worse.

      Closed and open world racers are different experiences, not inherently better or worse than one another.

      Weather is confirmed free in a patch soon after launch. It was demoed in-game to journalists at E3 2014 and demoed at Gamescom 2014, it’s basically finished.

      Framerate is confirmed locked at 30 and the game engine updates faster than the framerate for better controller response.

      Many next gen games were delayed not just Driveclub. Only blind fanboys single it out.

      The PS+ Version of Driveclub includes all game modes, the Platinum trophy, online play, 11 tracks, and 10 cars. It’s being offered free to PS+ users at launch. It’s more than “a demo”. Writing on the PlayStation Blog, manager Fred Dutton confirmed “DriveClub will be in addition to your regular PlayStation Plus allocation,” he elaborated in response to a fan.

      Driveclub PS+ Edition doesn’t take up a slot on October 2014 PS+ games, you still get two free PS4 games in addition to Driveclub.

      The PS+ Version of Driveclub includes all game modes, the Platinum trophy, online play, 11 tracks, and 10 cars. It’s being offered free to PS+ users at launch. It has far more features than a demo.

      Nobody is offering full retail AAA games on PS+ at launch. Is anyone else offering anything remotely approaching Driveclub PS+ Edition, basically giving away a good portion of the game? No, it’s unprecedented for an AAA retail game and a good thing.

      Driveclub beta tester impressions:

      “Gameplay really is fantastic. I’ve played a lot of racing games. From Burnout, PGR, Need For Speed series, Motorstorm, Gran Turismo, Forza (though not the Horizon series) and more. The car handling feels semi realistic, so a mix or realism and PGR style arcade, though I think it leans more towards realism. Plenty of content/events/challenges.

      Graphically it is the best racing game I’ve played (haven’t played PC racing games). At first I didn’t think it looked that great, but then you keep racing and it just hits you. It’s stunning, and just feels so rich. The environments just feel like they’ve had so much attention and it really brings the races to life. I haven’t really experienced this before, it’s just very dense. Motion blur is really well implemented, it doesn’t feel distracting at all.”

      Forza and Driveclub are both good racing games for different reasons, it’s only fanboys blindly hating one or the other.

      Project Cars has “up to 100 cars”, or about the same number as Driveclub.

      Interview with Project Cars devs. Maybe you should take their answer?

      “Ravi Sinha: How many cars and tracks are you planning to have in the final game? Do you have some biggies included?

      Andy Tudor: Journalists ? please stop asking this question! How many guns are there in Call of Duty: Ghosts compared to Battlefield 4? How many different enemy types are there in Dead Rising 3 compared to Ryse?

      Project CARS covers a wide range of motorsport types ? from karts to stock cars to everyday road cars to the kind of supercars you see on Top Gear, to GT, formula racers, and prototypes. So we aim to be close to a hundred cars to choose from across that huge variety but we never start a project with a mindset of “Let’s add as many as we can” since five variations of the same car don’t necessarily make a better game in our opinion.”

      Evo Studios is putting a ton of effort into each of their cars trying to recreate them accurately in modeling, paint layers, reflections, sound, etc.

      “How customisable will the weather be? Alex Perkins: We want you to be able to create epic races that you want to share with your friends because they took your breath away. Just like we do with time of day, skies and time lapse speed, we’re going to add lots of options for you to be able to adjust how the weather plays out in your challenges. We don’t want to just offer fixed settings for “rain” or “snow”, we want it to be dynamic and exciting. We’re still working on how best to present this to you and we’ll show more closer to launch.”

          Driveclub got great gameplay impressions at E3 2014, Gamescom 2014, and the recent beta test. People have the game early and they’re giving good or great impressions.

        hey , how about them driveclub reviews

        • demfax

          29 75+ reviews, seems like most on metacritic liked it.

          A 74 on metacritic is miraculous considering every rabid fanboy was making it out to be 4/10 at best.
