Driveclub “Looks Really Good” “Delay Was Good for Gamers” According to Insider

Today Evolution Studios posted a facebook message promising details, videos and a release date in the coming weeks, but apparently some are getting an a sneak peek on it earlier. Between those is industry insider Tidux who has proven to be quite reliable with his leaks in the past, and to be very close to Sony.

Tidux mentioned:

#driveclub looks really good. This delay was good for the gamers. #PS4

Contacted privately for more information, he revealed that he was given a chance to see recent videos, and that the picture released today on Facebook (that you can see at the bottom of the post) doesn’t do the game justice.

As usual insider information should be taken with the customary pinch of salt, but Tidux’s past reliability is spotless. Soon we’ll be able to see for ourselves if he’s right, but it seems that PS4 gamers are in for a visual treat with Driveclub.

    1080p 60fps perhaps?

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      He didn’t say, but I personally doubt it. Even from what he saw in old videos there’s simply too much going on on the background to reliably hit 60 all the time. The draw distance is insane.

      • Rickowned

        most likely if anything 1080p at least.

        • Giuseppe Nelva

          Oh yeah. It was already running at 1080 previously. No doubt there.

          • Rickowned

            funny enough I cant find the old video when they got it running at 1080p anymore when they were posting videos with resolution and fps at the time.

      PS4 is too weak!

  • They Call Me Senpai

    I was literally just thinking about DriveClub last night and saying that we should be hearing some news from Sony or their FB page soon, and looks like I was dead-on.

    I’m just hoping they used the extra time to further improve the draw distance and controls, rather than focusing on the scenery and paint. I expect that we’ll be getting a re-reveal at E3, if not sooner.

  • Raven Nafariea

    I am usually not into racing games but I do love driving fast cars, this might be fun!

    • PhantomVash808

      The PS+ edition being free doesn’t hurt either.

      • Raven Nafariea

        That is what I was thinking, really good deal. =)

    • Michael Balchunas

      You should try Need for Speed: Rivals. I haven’t played a racing game since Midnight Club 2 on PS2. NFSR made me love them all over again. Something about drifting and hitting turbo reaching 260 MPH is just so incredibly fun. I think I’ll always enjoy arcadie racing games more then simulation though. I couldn’t ever get into Gran Turismo, I’m hoping GT6 and Drive Club with change my mind.

      • Raven Nafariea

        Thank you for the suggestion. If I ever get the chance I will definitely pick that up and give it a try. =)

  • Craig Sloan

    Yeah I hope that the delay was worth it. I’ve been looking forward to this game since before the PS4 even launched. I have not played a racing game since GT4. I’m hungry for a really good next gen racing game. I also heard there is no microtransactions in this game which is awesome ( screw you The crew ) I hope the framerate has been improved beyond 30fps with the extra time in development as 60fps is better for a racing game. Hope it’s launched June latest.

  • MTM2

    I hope Evolution doesn’t abandon Motorstorm, that was my first PS3 game on PS3 launch day.

    Great soundtrack!

    • Delsin Rowe

      dude , you took me there. i remember motorstorm was my first ps3 game too. good times 😀

    • PhantomVash808

      I loved Motorstorm especially Pacific Rift

      Lunatics Unite!!!!!

      • Finchy74

        Ahh, good memories. Our first game for the PS3 was Fall of Man as well. The wife, the kid and I played the crap out of that game. It doesn’t look so hot now but at the time, it was tremendous.

        • Neil Riley

          Fall of Man was awesome online as well. It just worked so well.

          I replayed the campaign recently and the story still holds up really well. Graphics dated a little but only the lighting suffers badly.

    • MikeUK

      I remember the first time I saw my vehicle race through the sludge and seeing the wet tire marks being left on the ground for the entire race. I was speechless!

    • Boerewors

      Hope Driveclub will have the same “feel”. Motorstorm had this excellent vibe where it was clearly an arcade racer and although the stunts you could pull of and the handling were far from realistic, it didn’t feel like it was impossible. It was truly a great game which I played longer than I played my beloved GT for instance. So I’d like to see evolutions approach to the racing genre come back to Driveclub; beautiful, interactive scenery and arcady but believable racing.

  • zastavia .

    I’m hoping theres also a good offline career mode, I’m not an online person. I would also say 1080 def and 30fps.

    • Placebo

      Yup hope for the same on all counts, I don’t play any kind of MP, doesn’t do anything for me 🙂

  • Delsin Rowe

    awesome. can’t wait for the release date. thanks for the updates !
    every news websites are sleep right now , but you guys keep us update 😀

  • nyballplayer319

    does anyone know if they are still releasing a free version for ps+

  • PhantomVash808

    Looks like Tidux & Giuseppe don’t remember the first rule of Driveclub.

    I can’t wait to play this.

  • Jessenia Lopez

      Somebody hasn’t been paying attention.

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      Never gonna happen.

  • CervantesPR

    30FPS is just wrong……. i want 60fps. Gran turismo 6 Port please.

    • HustyparmenCZ

      agree with 60fps, racing game needs it.


    dualshockers should change to only new coming from him

  • datdude

    I’m wondering if there is still a free psplus version of this game. There better be after all these shenanigans. I sure hope there is, as I would love to try it out to see if I would be interested in the full version.

  • Guest

    More $0N¥ overhype that will underdeliver. It’s basic 101.

    • Craig Sloan

      Son’y studios make games that get high scores and GOTY awards. One thing they are not is overhyped. They meet expectation. Driveclub looks to be the racer to get on PS4 this gen.

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      Nah overhype that didn’t deliver was Titanflop, this however will deliver as all Sony exclusives do, deal with it cry baby.

  • Flytrap

    Hurry Hurry, I’ve bored of NFS Rivals.

  • otherZinc

    I’m so sick of all the talk! Drive Club was supposed to release in November, where’s the video? Where’s the demo. Stop with thie “trust us” bs. Show the game is its all that!

  • HustyparmenCZ

    So is it 30fps or 60fps? Cant wait to see the gameplay, must look amazing. 3rd SONY PS4 eye candy after Killzone Shadow Fall and Infamous Second Son.
