New Driveclub Trailer and PS+ Version Details

Last Updated: May 2, 2014


As promised, new information has been released about the PS4-exclusive Driveclub. When its release date (October 7, which is definitely shaping up to be a big day for video game releases) was announced, Game Director Paul Rustchynsky said we’d have to wait until this week to hear details about the frame rate.

Driveclub will run at a locked 30 fps. When asked, he said that in a racing game, a consistent frame rate is more important than a higher one.

Other fans have been concerned about the content of the free PlayStation Plus version of Driveclub, with some rumors suggesting it is just a demo, rather than a full game in its own right. Rustchynsky also addressed those concerns:

“It’s hardly a demo because you get access to all of the game’s features online and offline. The difference is that you only have 10 cars and you can only race in one country (which gives you access to 5 tracks with 11 distinct variants).”

We still aren’t sure how much content the main version of the game has, but the PS+ version sounds as though it’ll still have a good deal of things for you to do. However, you won’t be able to complete the single player campaign with only 10 cars and 5 tracks.

Finally, while this trailer doesn’t show anything particularly new, it’s worth mentioning that Mercedes Benz posted a video of the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Black Series in the game. Head on over to take a look.

What do you think? We expect to have more details as we get closer to E3, and of course, we should see much more at E3 itself.
