A new trailer from Sony not only shows off Evolution Studio’s gorgeous social racer DRIVECLUB, it also finally lets us know when players can begin starting their engines.
The release date is October 7th and if the trailers are any indication, Gran Turismo might be losing its top spot as Sony’s best racing simulator.
Originally announced at Sony’s PlayStation 4 reveal meeting, DRIVECLUB plans to bring a much more connected and social approach to racing.
The main focus is on creating clubs, which seem to function much like guilds or clans in other titles. One of the trailers shown had players walking up and entering a car, making it clear that Evolution is trying to hone a sense of realism and engagement in the video-game automobile universe.
Set to release in early 2014, the title was then delayed due to the team needing more time to reach its full potential.
In a PlayStation Blog article, Shuhei Yoshida said “the problem with being ambitious is you have to be prepared to accept there will be challenges along the way. What DRIVECLUB offers has not been previously achieved in this category, and, because of this, the team needed more time to give you the game you’re waiting for.”
If you haven’t checked out the DRIVECLUB trailer, now is the time. The game is a PlayStation 4 exclusive and should be at the top of the list for any owner, especially due to its extremely detailed vehicles.
