Today Sony Computer Entertainment and Evolution Studios dropped a surprise free buggy on Driveclub, without giving much information on how it works and on what features it brings.
But there’s more to them that meets the eye. Not only they have an unique boost feature and very bouncy physics, but their rules are also different from every other car in the game.
Driveclub is arguably heavy handed with penalties, especially for those used to more lenient car games. Especially cutting corners is normally penalized quite heavily.
That doesn’t happen with the buggies. As long as you have space to drive, you can use it. You can cut on the grass and dirt as much as you like, and you’ll never be penalized.
On top of that, the buggies are able to retain their speed in the dirt, letting you explore Driveclub‘s fantastic tracks in a completely new dimension.
One thing is for sure: this is definitely the best April Fool in quite a while.
