game release date for PS4:
DriveClub for PS4 is a racing game developed by the genre veterans responsible for Motorstorm, Evolution Studios. However, unlike the titled mentioned above, this production lets the players get behind the wheel of real sports cars.
The title also shows a different approach to law enforcement and, above all, focuses on the cooperation of the players who organize themselves in eponymous clubs in order to work together for the reputation of the entire team, collecting fame points. These are awarded for both the high places achieved in tournaments as well as performing numerous secondary objectives.
The gameplay in DriveClub is purely arcade – driving model is straightforward and easy to master. In addition, because the game focuses on multiplayer mode, we gain access to a range of options that affect the social rivalry between the racing participants.
The developers put a huge emphasis on the graphic design. Cars are modeled down to the smallest detail, and applied shaders make all materials look very natural, both on the inside and on the outside of vehicles.
DriveClub for PS4 debuted on the market in two versions – the retail one and a free one for PlayStation Plus subscription holders, limited in terms of the number of available tracks, cars and gameplay options.
