Driveclub Video Shows Spectacular Collision Physics and Effects, Flipping Cars

by on June 15, 2014 10:09 AM 83

One of the elements of Driveclub that Evolution Studios and Sony didn’t show much of is collisions. Today a video appeared on YouTube, courtesy of user TheGOOD Kyle, giving us a glimpse on the game’s collision physics and effects.

The video showcases a Ferrari sending a RUF against a wall and flipping it over with an effect that looks definitely realistic and spectacular. Unfortunately the follow-up isn’t very immersive, as the RUF straoghtens on its four wheels and marches on.

While we already knew that there’s no crippling damage in Driveclub, so the ending of the scene was pretty much to be expected, the crash itself is really spectacular.

    Oh hell yeah, now I can’t really wait to get this.
    But I can see why they did not follow on with the crash and all, if you paid attention to their last interview, they did not want to penalize the players too much, I believe.

    • angh

      They won’t penalize in sense of any permanent damage affecting steering or performance. Still, you loosing points and speed. It’s arcade and they quite vocal about it. For a sim we will have to wait for gt7 or multiplatforms, like project cars.

      • They Call Me Senpai

        Actually, they’re simcade and that’s what they’re quite vocal about.

      • GameDev345

        I think they said it would affect car performance in a small way but not as much as a full simulator

        • Axe99

          They’re on record (multiple times) as saying that crashing will not affect car performance (just visuals), and that the only penalty for crashing will be the time lost by the crash itself.

  • superkarma

    Lol, nice. The gameplays from E3 have definitely made me want this game even more. The game really does look incredible and I’m loving the gameplay and mechanics. Hopefully some nice wheels will come out before or around the release date.

  • Jeff Maxwell

    there seems to be one little problem with that track where he hits the left and sends him to the right theres no barrier or anything so basically he hit thin air then which apparently is a barrier now so they’ll have to fix that

    • Jato Knight

      I saw that to. The have to fix that. No way that makes it into the final version.

    • Vious

      yeah I saw that but i put it off as just an invisible barrier since the game isn’t open world and is a closed off track.

      • Jeff Maxwell

        yeah kind of funny though hahah cus the barrier starts just after that bit and looks like its chopped off cus its a straight edge starting

        • Vious

          lol, man I don’t know but you def made me laugh today.

      • Grant A

        So you want to talk about Forza 5 and its short comings?

        • superkarma

          Of course he doesn’t. Just like Xbox fanboys have suddenly forgot how much of a flop the first Horizon was.

          • Vious

            forza horizon is a flop? please do tell.

          • superkarma

            The sales, or lack thereof, tell that story perfectly.

          • Vious

            don’t know what you’re getting at but I asked for you to say what you’re trying to say.

            sales: only thing I’ve seen are vgcharts numbers: and for a new IP entry from those numbers it seemed to have done well.
            - anything else to denote it a flop?

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

            Wouldn’t really call Forza Horizon a new IP, it still had the Forza name.

          • Vious

            I guess you do sort of have a point since it has the forza name to it and is a driving game. however it’s a different type: it’s open road, arcade type whereas motorsport is more simulation, closed tracks.
            but I guess it wasn’t a completely new IP

          • superkarma

            It wasn’t a new IP at all. Different type of game doesn’t make it a new IP. It’s still under the Forza franchise.

          • Vious

            you’re beating a dead horse, I’ve already agreed with @Vucan_Spectre:disqus that it wasn’t a new IP.
            edit: completely new IP

          • superkarma

            No, you actually said “it wasn’t a completely new IP”. I was just driving the point home that it wasn’t a new IP at all.

          • superkarma

            And I said it…the lack of sales makes it a flop. Microsoft did a $45 price cut a month after it released. If that doesn’t tell you how bad the game did, I don’t know what does.

            There’s a reason why there hasn’t been any official announcements about its sales numbers…almost 2 years after it being released. Also, how could you consider it a new IP when it still carries the Forza name? It’s under the Forza franchise, so it’s not a new IP…it’s simply a new installment in the franchise. Nice try, though.

          • Vious

            interesting point you’ve made….however it’s way off base:

            vgchartz numbes was the only I’ve found for forza motorsport 4
            will you also peg this game a flop as there’s no official numbers out for it? at least I haven’t found any official numbers.
            - right now it seems you’re just throwing stuff out there to see what sticks. how about at least proving one of your points?

          • superkarma

            You ask me to prove one of my points (btw, I only had one point) how about you disprove my point? Prove to me those VGchartz numbers are wrong. Prove me to that the game did more than those estimated numbers. Like I said, a game doesn’t just get a $45 price cut for doing great.

          • Vious

            you’re failing hard.
            you said, lack of sales makes the game a flop. however, I’ve posted sales (estimate data). which you decline to accept.

            - also, i’m not sure of “a reason why there hasn’t been any official announcements about its sales numbers…almost 2 years after it being released” why don’t you tell?
            - if you’re going to continue saying it’s because it flopped then that sentiment has to carry over to all forza games since there are no official numbers for each title.
            -
            therefore, are you saying the forza franchise is a flop since there are no official numbers out?
            -
            about the price cut, that I didn’t know, also I didn’t see a link to a $45 price cut a month after release. do you have one, can you prove that point too?

          • superkarma

            Lol…decline to accept? What? I have accepted the Horizon sales numbers from VGchartz…which is exactly my point. 1.72m sales under the Forza franchise constitutes a flop. A $45 sale price drop a month after release further proves that point. It is the worst selling Forza game. Well, that’s if you don’t count Forza 5′s sales numbers…because according to VGchartz, those are even lower than Horizon.

            As for proving the $45 price drop, here you go:
            http://gamocialgaming.com/games/forza-horizon-tanking-just-a-month-after-release/

            “Right now you can grab Forza Horizon, which just released on October 23rd, for a small $15 investment on the Microsoft Store website.”

            Considering it was a temporary drop, I can’t exactly prove it by linking you directly to the product page. I’m sure if you did some more googling, you’ll have no problem finding more proof, if you so desire.

            As I originally said, the lack of sales (yes, 1.7m is a lack of sales) prove it was a flop. There’s nothing else to debate about this. The game flopped. Accept that. I can’t say the game was bad, because I didn’t play it…but apparently the masses didn’t care about the game, which is reflected by the lack of sales.

          • theodor70941

            Why are you trying to argue with an Xbot?

          • Grant A

            Because this is a rather persistent xbot who constantly draws a negative light to everything that people come to this site to read about.

          • superkarma

            I know. I shouldn’t have gotten sucked into his troll vortex…I’m deeply regretting that now, trust me. I can’t keep it up for much longer though, as I plan to jump back into Destiny in a few :)

          • Grant A

            On a side note Destiny is showing me the light of FPS in what has been a dark and dreary year.

          • superkarma

            Same here, man. I got into FPS’s mainly through Halo…played Halo 1-3 and loved them to death. I still remember playing Halo 1 on my OG Xbox…good times. I got into COD when COD4 came out…probably the biggest gaming mistake I’ve made. Started buying COD every year as it was the one FPS all my buddies just refused to give up. I admittedly liked COD, but that like always grew to hatred a few months down the road.

            I’m glad COD: Ghosts will be my last COD game. Destiny is now my home for FPS games. It combines two of my favorite games: Halo and Borderlands. I’m loving everything about it so far and I’m sure I’ll love it even more when the beta and full versions get released. I can’t wait to see what else they throw at us in the beta.

          • Vious

            about the forza horizon “price cut” = black Friday sale deal and there were a number of other deals an promotion going on too
            http://www.joystiq.com/2012/11/22/forza-horizon-crashes-to-14-99-on-microsoft-store/

            - to you 1.7m is a flop. it’s not to me.

            - also, if that is considered a sales flop to you then infamous 2 and infamous: second son were both flops against infamous 1. correct?
            - all i’m saying is that not because a game doesn’t sell more than it’s predecessor doesn’t make it a flop.

          • superkarma

            So Black Friday deals typically give a month old game $45 off? Name one other console game that has had that happen to it. I’ll gladly wait. I guess we can expect the same to happen to Destiny, DriveClub, Evolve, The Crew, Sunset, etc? They all come out before/around Black Friday.

            inFamous:SS wasn’t a flop, since the franchise has always garnered about the same sales for every title. Not only that, but Second Son hit 1 million sales 9 days after release…and was the fastest selling game in the franchise. Forza titles get 4-5.5 million, so when a title gets 1.7 million 2 years after release…yes that’s a flop.

            Also, what does inFamous have to do with this? We’re talking about Forza. Stay on topic and don’t move the goal posts simply because you’re losing the argument. Nice try with the inFamous argument…too bad it backfired on you, though.

          • Grant A

            Lol, you’ve driven your point home, but I don’t think little Vious can comprehend it, he has such a small brain for so many words.

          • Vious

            black Friday = they had many games there for the deal, even other games that were also released in October like forza horizon. here (nfs:most wanted = october, borderlands 2 = september, dance central 3 = october, dishonored= October)
            -
            infamous I used that as an example since the first one sold 2.7m while the second sold 1.6 going by your example of a flop, wouldn’t you call that a flop?
            -
            forza motorsport and forza horizon are not the same type of game = one is sim based closed track, the other is open road arcade (they don’t garner the same audience)

          • superkarma

            All those games in the Black Friday “deal” were all games that sold bad on the 360…hence why they were included in the sale. Again, further proving how it was a flop. You don’t do a 75% price cut on a game that’s selling well. Black Friday or not. Using your logic, we can expect to see Destiny, DriveClub, Evolve, The Crew, Sunset all at 75% off during Black Friday this year.

            It’s amusing you still don’t understand the flaw in your inFamous argument. As I said, it hit 1 million sales 9 days after release and is the fasting selling game in the franchise. It was not a flop. It did better than it’s previous titles.

            If you’re going by overall sales, that’s a bit laughable, considering Second Son has only been out 3 months on a platform that has only been out for 7 months. Meanwhile, the first inFamous has been out for 5 years and came to a platform that was out 4 years before that. Even with that said, it’s still outpacing the first one and will likely outsell it down the road. Stop with the inFamous comparison…you’re only embarrassing yourself further with that argument.

            Also, stop saying Horizon isn’t the same as Motorsport. It doesn’t matter. It’s under the same franchise. It carries the Forza name. I guess targeting a different audience was a bad decision, since the masses didn’t want it. Using your logic, I guess the same will happen with Horizon 2.

            Anyways, I’m done wasting my valuable time on you. You’ve shown, once again, how much of a pathetic troll you are. Time to go back to Destiny. While you’re wasting the day away trolling, I’ll be wrecking it in Destiny. :)

          • Vious

            just letting you know I didn’t read.

          • Grant A

            See how much fun you can have twisting facts? Its way better than the crap you keep spouting about a game that hasn’t come out and you haven’t played. But wait thats just horizons, what about the lack of cars, tracks, weather effects, and 3d people in Forza 5?

          • Vious

            - lack of tracks in forza 5 = there’s a decent amount there plus they’re adding more as time goes on. they just released the nurburgring track for free with more game modes for free.
            - cars = they’re adding cars as time goes on, some for free other for pay
            - weather effects = no, not in forza 5 but will be in horizon 2 default (wont’ be patched in at a later date)
            3d people = no, not in forza 5 but will be in forza horizon 2.

          • Grant A

            So… forza 5 was a rushed game to compete with sony’s racer that got delayed, and now you’re defending its problems and shortcomings where you would be attacking driveclub, please take your obnoxious bias elsewhere. Forza Horizon 2 will still be held back by the 360, there is no proof of this now, but once it releases it will be painfully obvious like all cross gen games.

          • Vious

            not sure where you’re coming from with this, but anything I’ve said about drive club so far is that the cars can make a good sequence of flips and garner no damage.
            - I personally don’t think you should be drawing comparisons to FM5/FH2 and drive club because 2 of those have more cars, tracks and features than the other. so lets just leave that comparison out of this.

          • Jecht_Sin

            It didn’t even make top 10 in the month it released. And it is NPD stating this:

        • Vious

          be my guest.

      • GodGamerDerp

        Hypocritical microsoft fanboy troll tries criticizing an arcade racer while ignoring every other arcade racer that only has cosmetic damage.

        It’s an arcade racer, not a sim, damage is supposed to be cosmetic. PS4 is totally capable of running sim racers like Project Cars or (in the future) Gran Turismo. Of course you’re a lying and hateful microsoft fanboy troll.

        What a surprise, this entire article is crawling with hateful and malicious microsoft fanboys.

  • Vious

    wow all that flipping and the car was still intact?

    • superkarma

      Yup. It’s great how the game doesn’t penalize you. I appreciate your concern, though.

      • Vious

        ??? are you ok?

        • superkarma

          Are you? This isn’t the first time you’ve made passive-aggressive comments referring to the damage models (or lack thereof) in DriveClub. It’s time you get over it and move on to something else to troll.

          • Vious

            I see you’ve edited your comment. and there’s nothing passive-aggressive in what I’ve said.
            it’s also interesting as it seems people shouldn’t critique what they see. it’s not like i’m lying or anything similar.

          • superkarma

            Yeah, edited it to further get my point across. Much like you edit your comments nearly every time you post.

            There’s nothing wrong with critiquing it. That’s not what you were doing, though. It’s interesting how you’re attempting to say your trolling is just critiques. That’s amusing, to say the least. Then again, we’ve all come to expect this nonsense from you on a daily basis.

          • Vious

            so me saying “wow all that flipping and the car is still intact” is trolling to you?

          • superkarma

            Yes — and not just to me, but to anyone who knows you on this site. But go ahead, keep acting like that’s not what you were doing. Because, as I said, this isn’t the first time you’ve made similar comments about the lack of damage in DriveClub…but yet, you acted surprised to see it in action again? Very interesting. No worries…I’m sure you were just critiquing it, though.

          • Vious

            you are such a liar. please show me or anyone where I’ve ever commented on drive clubs lack of damage physics? (my comment history is open).
            also if what I’ve said was trolling, I guess I should’ve said something like: “the way the car flipped and landed on it’s wheels without any damage is quite impressive”.
            - I didn’t know (or cared to remember) drive club lacked damage physics.

          • superkarma

            I’m not sifting through your massive amount of troll comments just to prove this point. You know you have, as I’m sure many others do as well. That’s enough for me. If that’s not enough for you, that’s on you to deal with. You were troll baiting with your above comment. It’s blatantly obvious, especially to anyone who knows your troll techniques, as sloppy as they are.

            Driveclub’s lack of damage has been publicly known since pretty much the start. There is damage, but not to the extent of a full-blown sim racer. They’ve also pretty much said from the start that they don’t want to penalize the player by having damage destroy performance.

          • Vious

            you are just a lair and are trying to use some dumb excuse to defend it. I’ve just looked through my comment history and saw nothing I’ve said about drive club’s lack of damage physics.

          • superkarma

            You looked through all 1300 comments? That sure was fast. As I said, if that’s not enough for you, that’s on you to deal with. Then again, I wouldn’t put it past you to edit your past comments in an attempt to prove me wrong.

            In any case, you were trolling. That’s the moral of the story. It’s nothing new coming from you. Like I said, we’ve all grown to expect this nonsense from you.

          • Vious

            once again there you go with such lame excuses and insinuations. i’d be damned if I’ve ever edited any of my past comments without putting an “edit” tag
            also, you’re not that important pal. don’t flatter yourself.
            - about the 1300 comment: it’s called search (taught you something new today again)
            - back on topic: what I’ve said (asked) about the game is valid and I wasn’t even the only one to notice it.

          • superkarma

            As I already said, the moral of the story is that you were trolling. You have indeed commented on Driveclub’s lack of damage in the past. Just like you have edited many comments without putting that “edit” tag in them. But, alas, you wouldn’t lie, right? Throughout your time on this site, you’ve been nothing but credible and trustworthy.

          • Vious

            no, its that you are a liar.
            lied about my past comments, then when pressed to prove it, you then insinuated that I edited my past comments to prove you wrong.

            edit: it’s the reason I’ve left my comment history open for people like you. I bet you I it was private you would try to get away with your lying.

          • superkarma

            No, I said I wasn’t going to waste my time sifting through 1300 troll comments. If that makes me a liar, so be it. I couldn’t careless what you call me. I then said I wouldn’t be surprised if you went back and edited your past comment(s) in an attempt to prove me wrong…and I wouldn’t be.

          • Vious

            = lying, can’t prove, then false insinuation.

      I find it much more funny when the cars in the race sims crash at 200 mph and you are still able to drive. Realism would require that the drivers should be dead and the coroner would come with an ambulance.

      To make it even more realistic they should add real airbags in the optional wheels, exploding on your face when you crash above a certain speed. Now THAT would be ultra realistic! lol

  • ErnieCDougherty

    The video showcases a Ferrari sending a RUF against a wall and flipping it over with an effect that looks definitely realistic and spectacular. Unfortunately the follow-up isn’t very immersive, as the RUF straoghtens on its four wheels and marches on. http://9mp.com/3SVQ0
