Driveclub VR launches for PlayStation VR in 2016

Sony officially announces virtual reality Driveclub.

Driveclub VR

After accidently announcing the game in Japan last month, Sony Interactive Entertainment confirmed today that Driveclub VR will launch exclusively for PlayStation VR in 2016.

In development “for more than a year now,” the game promises the “definitive and most immersive Driveclub experience possible.” It will feature:

  • Game modes: Online virtual reality multiplayer race modes and an action-packed single player career are joined by drifting and time trial challenges.
  • Tracks: New and classic Driveclub tracks are brought to life through the power of PlayStation VR, including five all-new Urban locations.
  • A closer look: More than 80 cars are recreated with immaculate detail for players to explore up close with Inspection Mode.
  • Cruise control: A little time to kick back, open the throttle or just coast and explore any track, in any country at your leisure in Cruise Mode.
  • Virtual passenger: An immersive thrill ride through exciting replays of hot laps as players watch themselves handle their greatest challenges from a unique viewpoint in Passenger Mode.

If you’re at Gamescom 2016 in Cologne, Germany this week, Driveclub VR will be playable at the PlayStation booth.
