Driveclub’s Drivers Will Have Different Skin Tones and Genders; Details Shared on Load Times and More

on September 12, 2014 6:01 PM

Driveclub is coming in fast towards the goal line and today Game Director Paul Rustchynsky provided some more information for your perusal on Twitter.

So far we saw only Caucasian males driving the game’s supercars, but that won’t be the case with the finished game, as it includes “a selection of predefined drivers, both male and female, which span a range of skin tones.” Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be full character customization, but at least if you want to play a lady of color, you’ll be able to.

Rustchynsky also mentioned that the team is asked about adding a split screen feature a lot, but it’s a lot more complicated than just downgrading the graphics to make room for it.

At Gamescom, we reported that loading times for tracks were under 30 seconds, with many loading under 10 seconds. Apparently, things are even better than that. Rustchynsky explained that the average load times are under 10 seconds on a stock PS4 HDD.

The goal of having short load times actually pushed Evolution to keep the install size small, and the game will take only 17 gigabytes of your hard disk. Rustchynsky specified that there’s no variation in install size between the full edition and the PlayStation Plus Edition. Speaking about the full game, unfortunately it’s the only one that will get a pre-load options, which makes sense since it’s also the only one you can pre-order.
