Fantastic Driveclub 1080p Screenshots Reveal Brand New Rain and Weather Effects on PS4

by on June 10, 2014 2:24 PM 70

In past interviews Evolution Studios mentioned that there was no rain in Driveclub, but it was added that the team was working on experimenting with weather. Apparently those experiments went rather well, as Sony Computer Entertainment just sent in an amazing batch of surprise screenshots showing the game’s beautiful supercars under the pouring rain.

Game Director Paul Rustchynsky also gave more information on Twitter.

It’s indeed one of the most visually pleasing rain effects I’ve seen in  quite a while. If you don’t believe me, you can just check out the gallery below.

    Looking really good there, wonder what else will they add to the game before release.
    Maybe a few more cars *hint* and hopefully up the club member count, but other than that I had already decided to get the game anyways. This is just the icing on my cake.

      I always feel like i’m the odd one out when i see comments on the car count, 50 seems a lot to me as i barely ever use more than 10 on any racing game. It’s kinda as a fighting game having 50 characters, which is a lot. But that’s probably because i play very few racing games… I suppose that for the hardcore racers maybe it’s low because they’ve gotten used to more. Though i’ll still say to hold judgement because quality trumps quantity

      • Somebodyissilent

        I’m with you. I find a car I like and stick with it.

      • http://gradly.net/ Gradly

        This is not the point. More cars means more possibility your favorite cars will be in the game. that’s it :)

        • Porcu Peth

          ok. like i said i’m not much into racing games, i played GP on pc, gt3 on ps2, motorstorm on ps3…that’s basically it, only one game every few years, not something i like to keep buying, so i guess these things don’t get to me

          edit, actually played a few more like Burnout on ps2 and PGR on 360 but not all that much

    • albatrosMyster

      I think they said somewhere it took around 7 months to model a car, from start to finish, I assume they have a few teams doing the work or different parts of the work at the same time, but still, they would know how many cars they ship with the game, it’s shipping in about 5 months from now!

      However, those effects do look nice and the game seems more intense than it was when it was first shown! I am still sad it’s only 30fps, as I would like a good arcade racer (Sega, make a new Daytona USA or Sega Rally game!!).

      • Brian Murphy

        Yeah, what they actually mean is 7 months in man hours, Polyphony Digital usually talks about that as well, but they make sure to say it’s man hours, otherwise imagine how long it’d actually take to make one of these racing games lol :)

        • albatrosMyster

          You can imgine why the original Outrun only had 1 car (a ferrari!) they just obessed over every single details…. yet they got lost in the final version because of memory constraints and hardware performance, they had to resort to a small sprite to represent the car model :-/ This is a little known fact of gaming history right there, feel free to bring this up in conversations to impress your friends and family.

          • Sean Lumly

            Arrgh! Now you have the idea of a current-gen Outrun re-make placed in my brain! It was open-world, before open-world was a thing!

  • supersungin

    i wonder why game delay all of the sudden,maybe downgrade :) ?

    • Porcu Peth

      upgrade, as we’ve clearly seen. Looks better than ever.
      Wonder why you keep posting this, the jealousy must be overwhelming.

      • supersungin

        mind your own business

        • Porcu Peth

          you don’t have an opinion, you’re trolling. anyone with eyes sees that the game looks better than ever.

          • supersungin

            your eyes downgraded.

          • Delsin Rowe

            are you high or something?

          • They Call Me Senpai

            Must be some pretty cheap stuff if it’s making him see imaginary downgrades.

          • Michael Norris

            You must be wearing blinders…or you love to troll anything Playstation.

          • Sucka Free

            He’s a wannabe Master Race, only he’s lacking the technical requirement

        • MTM2

          You’re on a public comments section, everything we say is public and everyone’s business.

        • TotallyNotGlenn
    • superkarma

      I wonder why every comment of yours in every article is talking about downgrades? Is it because you’re a pathetic troll? I think so.

      • supersungin

        oh yeah ? so i have to be positive all the time about e3 demos ? and why you so angry when someone have different opinion than yours ?

        • superkarma

          No one said you have to be positive all the time about E3 demos. I’m simply pointing out how every time you comment on an article, it’s trolling about “downgrades”. Also, I’m not angry in the least. I find your trolling technique to be quite sloppy, which gives me a good laugh.

          • supersungin

            good laugh ?oh by proving my point?tell me if the game is realy graphically true or not?

          • superkarma

            Lol, what point have I proven? Other than the fact that you’re a pathetic troll who desperately needs to improve your trolling technique.

            I can’t tell you if the game is graphically true to this or not, since it’s not even out yet. Just like you can’t tell me it isn’t. From the actual gameplay demos that have been released, I’d say it’s safe to assume the graphics are top-notch.

          • supersungin

            then why the delay then ?

          • superkarma

            So they can fix/change whatever they needed to fix/change. Same reason why any game gets delayed. Are you saying they delayed the game so they can downgrade it? Not sure how that logic makes sense, but then again, I am trying to reason with a troll…

          • supersungin

            your right man,i have to be like you.from now on i will stop being clown and surrender to the fans.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            This is post delay, you tremendous idiot.

          • Porcu Peth

            why the delay? improve both gameplay and graphics. journalists said it themselves, the ones who played it last year and this year

          • supersungin

            ok man,forget it. i will not post another comment,so stop ok ? you are right from the beginning

          • MTM2

            Just ignore and flag him mate, the mods will catch up eventually – until then don’t drive yourself :)

          • supersungin

            ok man i will stop,dont get angry jeez,ps4 is great and the graphic is true and amazing.everything is perfect

          • They Call Me Senpai

            His trolling may need work, but his baiting (which is unintentional) is first class.

    • albatrosMyster

      Yes, the cars are all wet now, this is horrible to have to drive in that kind of weater!! DOWNGRADE from SUNNY to RAINY!

  • *Travis__Ringo*

    looks awesome!!!

  • They Call Me Senpai

    It’s so wet.

  • aldnoahzero

    amazing graphics…

    • supersungin

      wonderful graphic

  • Bennibop

    Wow

  • http://www.chrisebarb.com/ Christopher

    Visually this game keeps looking better and better. Damn I can’t wait till this fall!

  • Jordan

    This was definitely in response to Forza Horizon. I think these two games will have striking similarities.

    • Ω GUNTZ

      They’ve been working on this before Forza though. They finally managed to get it working with the delay.

  • superkarma

    Livestreaming gameplay :)

  • Trim Dose

    OMG they did it, this was the only thing missing for this to be an awesome complete package, yes I love rain effects on racing games. For the looks of it is going to be epic as everything else.

    This absolutely made my day :)

  • Ultimately_Flat_Out_Peasant

    DOF reduced. Still at 30FPS on closed circuits.

    Another downgrade to add into the pile of downgrades.

    • Jecht_Sin

      How many times do you need to be banned to get the hell out of here for good? At least try some new trolling, you’re boring the hell out of me. And, I presume, us.

      • Cassive

        He is funny though, popping up everywhere with that jokes DP

    • They Call Me Senpai

      The DOF has been increased and the circuits may be closed, but they’re highly detailed and the lighting system is dynamic. I guess we can add this to your mountain of failed troll attempts.

    • GodGamerDerp

      There was only one delay and the graphics have been upgraded since then, not down.

      Malicious, lying, and hateful.

    • WOLF581

      YOU DONT HAVE GAMES LAME GUY ON YOUR POWERFULL PC

      CONSOLES GAMING MONARCHY RULES YOUR POWERFUL PCS

  • Jecht_Sin

    Upgraded.

  • NoNeedToArgue

    oh my jesus

  • zastavia .

    I think an important factor is also the amount of cars available for each race, weather single or multiplayer. Personally I think no less than 8 in single player. 6 is just not enough. Still, this is looking mighty fine, especially the environments which seem so expansive. It is obvious the studio has shared a lot its resources between the cars and tracks, rather than just focusing on mainly the cars. The tracks and surroundings look a whole lot more detailed than Horizon 2’s.

  • Temjin001

    some of those shots would have me fooled for pre-rendered CGI a couple years ago. the graphics look great,

  • Eagles83

    The weather effects look great. I hope the gameplay reaches the same level.

  • Mikail

    ” VISUAL UPGRADE CONFIRMED “, (dang look at that raining effect ), btw prepare your self from the jealous Xbox camp and PC idiot Master race on the comment section :P

  • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQNHs-Wpr24PIsKl5CV8Xtw Vulcan Spectre

    Making me thirsty!

  • Mikail

    i don’t know why, but i am masturbate with this picture.

  • Connxtion

    Let’s hope there not bullshots.

    Yeah know like all game devs/pr peeps do.

    If there actually representation of the final game then, I can’t say it doesn’t look sexy, let’s hope it plays as good as it looks.

    Also isn’t weather appearing after release? So could be another year before we get it :-@

  • Sean Lumly

    These graphics are insane. It joins The Order 1886 and Uncharted 4 as games that can easily pass as pre-rendered CGI.

    Plus the game looks really, really fun as well. I’m into arcade racers, and this is one that I will definitely get.

    • WOLF581
