Over the past month or so, Driveclub developer Evolution Studios has been sharing screenshots of the game on its Facebook page, selecting some of the best pictures created by the community thanks to the game’s advanced photo mode.
The level of the shots is seriously incredible, and to be honest I wouldn’t even know where to start creating some of those. I thought I was decent with photo mode, but the screenshots you’ll see below made me rethink that notion.
Some of them are extremely scenic, others boast framing and composition worthy of a professional beauty shop on the best car magazines, some simply seem real.
It’s definitely fair to say that the the game deserves to be defined the best looking title (at least so far) of this generation. While the photo mode cheats a bit with anti-aliasing and shadows, the true beauty of the game is in its lighting and shaders (which, for those unfamiliar with the term, aren’t the same thing as shadows, but what defines how materials reach to light on the screen). That’s where Driveclub‘s graphics truly excel, showing us what the PS4 can really do, and probably a glimpse on what more developers will achieve in the future.
Check them out in the gallery below to see what happens when a fantastic engine meets the creativity of gamers, and if you have some of your own to share, please do so in the comments.
