Driveclub “Vastly Different” From GRID Autosport

After a painful tease via screenshots such as the one above, yesterday Sony published the very first videos of Driveclub‘s weather system, and they look fantastic, as you can see for yourself below. This prompted many congratulations but also questions sent via Twitter to Evolution Studios, and two of them are particularly interesting.

In the first one, a user commented that Driveclub’s handling looked similar to GRID Autosport (Codemasters‘ latest racing game, which we have reviewed quite positively a few days ago), to which Game Director Paul Rustchynsky replied that Evolution’s game is a vastly different experience.

In the second one, Senior Community Manager Jamie Braidshaw left the door open to revisiting the Motorstorm franchise on PlayStation 4 in the future, after completing Driveclub. Truthfully, there are many fans of Motorstorm out there, myself included, and one can wonder how good it could look using Driveclub’s amazing engine and improving upon it.

Driveclub will launch on 7th October, exclusively for Playstation 4.

    Blablabla. More overhype that won’t deliver.

      Driveclub got great impressions at E3 2014, it’s like a next-gen PGR with connected social features and club competition. Most E3 2014 impressions state it plays well and looks great. It will review well and sell decently. It’s the best looking console racing game.

      This game is channeling Project Gotham Racing, one of Xbox’s most beloved arcade racers. Those games didn’t have any customization beyond paint jobs and you know what? They were still amazing. It’s an arcade racer, different from sim racers, it doesn’t necessarily need fine tuning customizations. Not inherently better or worse.

      Closed and open world racers are different experiences, not inherently better or worse than one another.

      Weather is confirmed free in a patch soon after launch. It was demoed in-game to journalists at E3 2014, it’s basically finished.

      Both Driveclub and Forza are good games.
