There’s an acute shortage of driving titles on the PlayStation 4 and owners of Sony’s console like me are anxiously waiting for Driveclub to be released. This title was supposed to be a launch title for PS4 however it was delayed. It will now be released almost a year after it was originally intended to come out. Over the past couple of weeks several details about the game have been revealed, game director Paul Rustchynsky has shared some more through Twitter.
First and foremost Rustshynsky mentioned that players will be able to control the opacity of Driveclub’s OSD, the on-screen display. Players will have the option to drive without an OSD if they prefer to be completely immersed in the driving experience.
A rather interesting detail that the game director revealed is that all transitions which depict the character entering the car will be rendered in-game, Driveclub will not use pre-rendered videos for these transitions. Players won’t have any control over these transitions though, so you can look, but you can’t touch.
We found out earlier this week that at launch Driveclub won’t feature cars from Japanese manufacturers. Evolution Studios is talking with those manufacturers to obtain the appropriate licenses. Driveclub for PlayStation 4 will be released in North America on October 7th, Europe follows a day later.
