PS4 racer DriveClub gets eight new screenshots

Realistic PlayStation 4 racer shown off in new close-up screenshots.

Eight new screenshots of MotorStorm developer Evolution Studios' DriveClub have emerged.

The close-up screenshots (via All Games Beta) of the PlayStation 4 exclusive racer show off the game's car models, lighting engine, and cockpit views. Multiple car types are featured, and manufacturers Audi and Mercedes Benz are prominently displayed.

DriveClub was unveiled alongside the PlayStation 4 in February. The game's aim, according to Evolution Studios, is to make a realistic, connected racer with multiplayer and asynchronous play.

DriveClub currently has no release date. Sony this week announced its other realism-focused racer, Gran Turismo 6, for the PlayStation 3--but hinted to GameSpot that there are already plans in place to bring it to PlayStation 4 in the future.

I only scanned the first few comments but I was waiting for the usual "I'm not impressed by anything" comments. To my delight, I see not everyone is spoiled beyond belief and can take a moment to appreciate how insanely far real-time graphics have advanced over the years. Maybe it's different for people who pretty much started gaming with PC/360/PS3 quality but if you take a trip back to the 80s or even the 90s and then look at this stuff, it's absurd. I like when people can take off their rich-kid glasses, take a step back, and actually appreciate all the crazy "standard" features we have these days. Good job.

It's like Test Drive or Mercedes Benz World Challenge meets landscapes of Battlefield 3.

I think it may not have as many cars as Gran Turismo... but it's definitely the game I'm most excited for.

This may be the first race game that I will play in first person on a regular basis. I hope that you can costumise your car with things like blacklight under the car and bodykits (not a must for performance but to show off), and that people will gather and line up their cars to show them off. Maybe dragrace them on a closed street for a special social event, that you can get out of your car and watch the race with others in the crowd, lock your car so it can't get stolen :P This game has a lot of potential. I loved the part that they showed off when he got into his car in first person. I hope they will do this game justice and put in things like that, when you put a lot of time into your car you want places to show it off and not just when you are in a race and everything goes 100 mile an hour. Hope to see some gameplay and hear some more details at E3. :)

I've kind of given up on NFS after all these years so let's hope this game is the answer when it comes to next Gen.

The sky and the landscape are most impressive to me, racing games, for some reason, have looked better than other genres for a long time, so the car detail isn't a ton better, but the landscape looks very realistic.

Drive Club! From what was shown at the PS4 announcement the gameplay sounds great.

So are these the first screenshots of the next generation?

I feel oddly....indifferent. I guess "next generation" has lost it's meaning to me lol.

Since i am set for a PS4, i hope this will become a decent Forza 4 replacement...

I would say WOW but ive been looking at these kind of visuals for a long time on PC already. But still :)

id much rather see proper 1st person and 3rd person viewpoints not fancy replay stills. as long as the handling is right and races are balanced with punishment for those who drop out when losing, then im stoked for this.

Forget racing I'd be looking around at all the scenery.

If Evolution Studios goal is to make the cars look realistic, then they have a long ways to go

I am a lot more excited about this game than GT4 part 3.

Will be a day 1 buy for me.

Driveclub looks sweet. I love the cockpit view but at the same time I would like 3rd person view, just to occasionaly switch it on and amire virtual ride in freeview while I am driving. This would be super sweet.

From what I see, is that Sony is putting Gran Turismo series up against Forza Motorsport, while DriveClub is pitting against Forza Horizon...

I really want this to be amazing, I really do. But, With so much attention to detail like the fibers of the seats, the glare on the tach, etc. I just hope it's fun!

Project cars, surprisingly, looks better than this next-gen racer.

@acelogan1989 Two good racing games are better than one. And this is very different breed than Gran Turismo. I'm not complaining, I'm waiting eagerly to play both.

@SteelCurtainX NFS is an arcade driver man. Nothing wrong with mind you Burnout is still one of my most favourite series. But this is more in line with Forza and Grid.

@Roger_Smith True but racing games have looked pretty much photo-realistic for most of this generation, there isn't really a lot of room for improvement in the genre.

@AlphaWolF_J I have a very Beefy PC myself but I have not seen anything that come close to this yet on PC. So you PC must have come with a very hefty price tag and is Ultra Mega Beefy.

@Moonco that can be said for all studios trying to make racing simulators ("make the cars look realistic" is the purpose of racing simulators)

@Frostbite24 You do know that project cars is a next gen also.  And the good looking trailer is on DX11, something the PS3 and 360 are 8 years behind tech wise.  

Don't expect the console version to look half as good as a gaming PC.

@splinter10 @SunnySkyNL Yeah I know, I was just speculating but they want to make it a social racing game so who knows what they will put in it, just racing is not enough for me to think that this game is more special than any other racing game. I guess I will be able to make a dissision when they show gameplay and more datails at E3 :)

@splinter10 @SteelCurtainX Yes, I can see that.  I like racing games of all types and I've had my fair share of Gran Turismo.  I'm just commenting because there were few great racing titles released in this generation imo and I'm hoping this will be one of the titles that fulfills all of my driving game needs.

@chuckles471 Project Cars is releasing on PS4 and Nextbox? I didn't know that. It has been in development for quite some time including solidly still in this current gen. It will be releasing on 360 and PS3. Calling it a next gen title is like calling any PS3 only games next gen that are released after the PS4 is released.

Moreover just because it looks "nextgen" doesn't in fact make it so. DX11 is still a product of the current gen.

@SunnySkyNL @splinter10 True. I guess customisation would be cool. I personally just want  amazing detail and 100% accurate car specs thats transcend into the game.

@snaketus DX11 came out and was used in the current PC games before the WiiU launched so yeah, it was a current gen product.

Unless you're saying you think PC is generations ahead of consoles.

@Frostbite24 @chuckles471 "DX11 is still a product of the current gen" 

No it's not.

edit: If you mean current gen is ps3 and xbox 360.
