DriveClub playable at E3 2013

Developer Evolution Studios also says DriveClub isn't "a simulation in any way, shape, or form."

by

PlayStation 4 launch racer DriveClub will be playable at E3 2013, developer Evolution Studios has revealed on Twitter.

The next game from the MotorStorm developers was unveiled alongside the PlayStation 4 in February, with Evolution Studios saying it was the game the team had wanted to make for years.

Few details of the game have transpired since its original announcement, but in a recent developer diary game director Col Rodgers said DriveClub wasn't aiming to be a realistic simulation racer like Gran Turismo 6 or Forza Motorsport 5.

"This isn't a hardcore racer," said Rodgers. "It's not a simulation in any way, shape, or form. It's about having fun in cars on very fast roads."

E3 2013 will take place in Los Angeles from June 11 to 13, with Sony holding its press conference on Monday, June 10, at 6 p.m. PT. GameSpot will be in attendance.

Worst game title ever.  I'm going to go play ShootClub now.  Bye.

That's how I prefer my racing games, unrealistic.

Not to be negative, but Motorstorm worked because of the intense nature of the game that made it stand out from the rest of the pack... DriveClub to me, sounds like a Ridge Racer clone (with added features).

Back in the days the original Ridge racer was nowhere near a simulation but racing was mainly fun and mastering the  races required lots a practice, especially to be number one. I feel like this is what they are trying to achieve here. a great looking games that is easy to pick up have fun with. I imagine it will be easy to pick up a controller do a race and finish 5th or so or qualified for the next race but it will surely become extremely tough when you are gonna want mastering a track, beat other people scores or secure the 1st place in a race.

"Col Rodgers said DriveClub wasn't aiming to be a realistic simulation racer like Gran Turismo 6 or Forza Motorsport 5" just what the hell does this guy know DriveClub is going to be a better simulator than Forza5 according to the fanboys who have inside info on it

People complain that NFS HP2 did not have customization.. I mean for what reason would it have? so you can beat the fastest cars in the world. LOL..

They can not do car customization anymore people! Why do you ask still.  There is already the fastest car out there like Bugatti Veyron .

Burnout 3: Takedown is already the best racing game ever made.

There, there's your bluprint - now go!

That looks boring.

Developers, please listen: All we want is a game that has:
- The driving feel and graphics of Grid
- The licenses of Forza
- The customization options of old NFS (like Underground - original Most Wanted series)
- The open world/environments of Test Drive Unlimited

"it's about fun in cars on very fast roads"

"it's about fun"

That's all I look for in my games. As long as it's fun, I won't complain about every single little aspect. That'll only bring out arguments between people like the everlasting BF - COD wars :P

I love the Forza & GT series's, also love Grid, DiRT and 'some' of the NFS games.....

So where will this fit in?

you don't have to wait till E3 to try it. you can try it fully and free now. just go in your browser's address bar and type "www.facebook.com" without the quotation marks.

So they basically made a need for speed clone, only difference being Drive Club comes void of emotion, social aspects crammed down your throat and a stupid name.... 

*slow clap*

As long as it doesn't drive all weird like some full blown arcade racers.

I'm actually sort of glad that it isn't going to be a sim. A great looking game that doesn't get hung up on some of the contrivances of reality like real friction coefficients. I'm hoping for a game between GT and Need for Speed. I'll get GT for sim and this for good old racing fun. Win-win.

Forza 5 is still looking the best bet in my opinion.

I don't mind it not being a simulation but I don't want some gimmicky arcade crap either.  I played Motorstorm on the PS3 and hated it so I have my doubts about this.

If it drives like the older NFS games (1-6) this game could be really good.

I hope this game is full of features because this doesn't look next gen at all.  It looks like it's PS3 quality.  I guess we'll see more of it.

Chicks and boobs get in the way of the cars. Car stuff > Digital mammaries.

@Disturbed_88 They can not do customization anymore for cars. Cars and times have changed. It won't make sense.

@Disturbed_88 We want better than that. Including better car damage model. Realistic burnouts.. Smoke effects from skids and burnouts than stays awhile.

@TheSkyrimStatue ha, need for speed had emotion? also nfs mw had more social aspects crammed down your throat than any game I've ever played. And that's a lot

@Salt_AU Really? With it's Pre-rendered Cut scene VS Actual Gameplay hmmm

TBH Forza Horizon was a terrible game.

@JumpyLuweegee Why

@rasterror I think the game looks very nice if the trailers are atleast a lil bit based on the game engine. Truly next gen, compare it to some Forza shit graphics etc...

@rasterror  

Don't see how. You compare say Gran Turismo 5 to this and it looks pretty shabby.

Plenty of videos to get an accurate picture of what i mean.

@SIDEFX1 @Disturbed_88 dude you are obviously not a car guy! So what, has everyone around the world stopped tuning their own vehicles? We don't all strive to buy Ferrari's. Some of us sweat and toil over our suspension settings. To us aero isn't just some cosmetic showpiece it's what keeps us glued to the asphalt. What doesn't make sense is you believing that in this new age we shouldn't care about making cars that we love into our very own. :D

@Dr_takapotku @rasterror If you watched the comparison video between Forza 5 and Drive Club you would see that Forza easily bests it.  And the great thing is that the Forza club was all in game engine and no CGI what so ever.

@rasterror @Dr_takapotku
Why does everyone say that?  I have not seen any proof that tells me that it's in-game graphics.

I'm going to have to ask for evidence on this one.
