PS4 Exclusive Driveclub: No Japanese Cars at Launch; Evolution in Talks to Add them as DLC

Driveclub‘s car line-up seems to be mainly European, and many are wondering if there are any Japanese rides in the bunch. Unfortunately we can confirm that there won’t be, as explained directly to us by Game Director Paul Rustchynsky during a behind-closed-doors presentation at Gamescom.

Rustchynsky also added that while the game’s launch won’t see any Far Eastern horsepower, Evolution Studios is in active talks with several Japanese car manufacturers to acquire the license to add cars from the archibelago of the rising sun after the release as part of the title’s DLC, some of which will be paid for and some free.

We also learn that the cars that are included in the initial line-up have been selected to have a wide variety of driving styles even within the same category, and to adapt to a variety of situations. For instance there will be rides more suitable for precision racing and some for drifting.

Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long before release, as I’m sure I’ll miss my favorites 370 Z and GTR.

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