Driveclub Has No Clutch Support and No Horns; You can Drive With a Wheel from the Get Go

If you like to drive your racing games with the clutch, the upcoming PS4 exclusive Driveclub is going to require a bit of getting used to, as mentioned by Game Director Paul Rustchynsky on Twitter today:

No clutch support currently, but I’ll have to check-up on the TH8RS for you.

Rustchynsky also mentioned that there isn’t a a button to toot your car’s horn, and since we’ll be thrown straight into a race as soon as we launch the game, if you have a wheel you won’t even need to touch your DualShock 4 to play, as your wheel will be configured automatically and will work from the get go.

Personally, I can’t help being a little disappointed by the lack of clutch support, but considering that there’s currently one PS4 compatible wheel with a clutch pedal for the moment (the Thrustmaster T-500), it’s perhaps understandable.

Since Rustchynsky says “currently” we can maybe hope to see it added with a future patch, when wheel support for the console will be extended.

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