Plus, a set of super high-resolution new screenshots.


Driveclub will launch for PlayStation 4 in North America on October 7 and Europe on October 8, Sony Computer Entertainment and Evolution Studios confirmed.

A new trailer showcases the game’s progress since we last saw it.

Additionally, Sony confirmed Paul Rustchynsky, who previously directed MotorStorm RC, to be Driveclub‘s new game director.

“We planned for the game to be ready for early 2014 and are committed to delivering on our ambitious promise of creating a truly innovative, socially connected racing game,” Sony Computer Entertainment boss Shuhei Yoshida said in a PlayStation Blog post.

“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.”

  • uhawww

    At long last.
    My hype for this is still at critical mass.

  • shogunknight

    One year late….looking good though

    Edit: seems like there will be more details tomorrow

  • DesmaX

    Hope it will be good, too many delays is never a good thing.

  • BossTuff

    Looks much better than a year ago, the extra dev time really shows. Also, glad to see they nailed down a release date.

  • DesmaX

    You know you’ll see good stuff when they write “Footage captured from the console”

  • 武神水樹

    Wasn’t PSN PLUS getting this

    • uhawww

      Yes, there will still be a PS+ Edition

      • 武神水樹

        Sweet thanks

  • MrFinalgamer

    Holy shit this looks amazing! And this is still year 1! I’m beginning to fear that they’re already maxing out the hardware, these graphics are insane!

    • disqus_rIjnBIKvqC

      ps4 power aint maxed out yet, remember when GOW3 came out and they said that it has been maxed out? and when GOW:A came they said the same thing and you can clearly see the difference year graphics on ps3 and 2010+ to this date. its only beeing said because they dont know how yet. I can assure ps4 graphics will get better.
      Tho personally I dont care for ps4,so many shitty games on it,from my point of view atleast.

  • badmoogle

    Wow…imagine how GT7 will look…

    • Budgiecat

      GT7 should have playable drivers like Test Drive Unlimited.

      Have Sony exclusive (realistic looking) character cameos: Joel, Drake, Ellie, Madison, Sully, Jody Holmes, Delsin Rowe, etc

      • MrFinalgamer

        How about a living Sir Daniel Fortesque?


    Ok this looks pretty sick.

  • Zukato

    Driveclub is finally on the track again! Looks wonderful too, I might add.

  • ShadowFang

    That is really amazing looking. Although it also reminds me of something… this looks & sounds like how a PS4 Ridge Racer should. Won’t control like it, I bet.

    This is probably going to be another unfun, very heavy/”prone to fishtailing”-type of driving model that all sims and so-called arcadey racers use these days. Which, fine, if you like those types of racers, have at it. But for people who like FUN racers, like me, it’s been a LONG time since someone got a true arcadey driving model right. Been a long time since Burnout came out. Ridge Racer Unbounded and Split/Second weren’t great arcadey racers either. I hope SOMEONE – not just indie developers – deliver a racing game that looks & sounds this good this gen, but is actually fun to control too.

    This and The Crew

  • Elvick

    Have had this preordered for awhile. Sucks it’s not coming mid-year, that’d be better for me, but oh well. Glad we got a date and that by the end of the year we’ll be playing it.

  • krokounleashed

    Launch window, am I right? It’s still 30 fps, right?

  • Guiliano

    I think it can be great game so I’m in:)
