DRIVECLUB is being built as a game that will provide players with plenty of replay value, and isn't just a one time play through. DLC is always a way of accomplishing this, but Evolution Studios may have more in mind when it comes to the future of the game.
DRIVECLUB will be launching in a few short months for the PS4, and fans who want to stick around in this world will want more new content. DRIVECLUB Game Director Paul Rustchynsky remarked on the future plans the team has for DRIVECLUB.
"We’ve always viewed it as a game that will evolve over time, growing with its players in the same way that you see the most popular social networks grow with their users.
"We’ve already got lots of innovative ideas to extend the experience and we’ve already announced the powerful dynamic weather system we’ve been working on, which is just one of the ways we’ll be expanding the game. We have more lined up to unveil in the coming weeks and months, too," Rustchynsky said.
A second screen experience can absolutely enhance a game, but for a racer, it's a bit harder to execute. Rustchynsky confirmed that the game will not have a second screen option and why that is.
"We experimented with ideas like this and found that they don’t tend to work out as well as you’d hope, because of latency, or where you’d put your tablet while racing so you can still see where you’re going; for one reason or another, most don’t work out," Rustchynsky said.
Second screen aside, DRIVECLUB has plenty to offer players, especially from a connected, social standpoint. Players will be able to connect with friends and fellow racers like never before. It'll be interesting to see how the connected features of DRIVECLUB factor into the overall product. We'll finally get our hands on DRIVECLUB when it launches on Oct. 7 exclusively for the PS4.
