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.
We’ve just confirmed that DRIVECLUB will have dynamic rain and snow, which will affect car handling. Plus it looks amazing

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.
