Driveclub VR Confirmed as PlayStation VR Launch Title by Sony Japan (UPDATE)

on July 29, 2016 5:06 AM

Today the Japanese PlayStation Blog released some new information about Driveclub VR, confirming that it will be a launch title for PlayStation VR on October 13th.

According to the post, the game will be a dedicated title for PlayStation VR, released in Japan in both physical and digital download versions for 4,900 yen plus taxes (about $47). Incidentally, that’s the same local asking price of PlayStation VR Worlds, which will cost $39.99 in the United States. We should probably expect a similar pricing for Driveclub VR in the west.

The title promises a realistic driving experience from the cockpit view, 3D audio, a viewing mode that allows players to examine the cars from various angles and newly added urban tracks.

Incidentally, Driveclub Director Paul Rustchynsky confirmed on Twitter that the game includes “a collection of brand new tracks.”

Rustchynsky afterwards confirmed on NeoGAF that Driveclub VR has indeed been developed by the same team that made Driveclub.

“The same development team who made DRIVECLUB, also made DRIVECLUB VR.”

UPDATE: The Japanese PlayStation Blog removed the post, probably indicating that Sony wasn’t yet ready to make the announcement.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
