DriveClub to be “one of the biggest titles for Sony from a DLC perspective”
A slew of new details on Sony and Evolution Studio’s upcoming PlayStation 4 racer DriveClub are out, revealing that the game has an extensive DLC plan already.
The preview reveals that the developers plan to add a significant number of new cars to the game, with Game Informer commenting that the title is “one of the biggest titles for Sony from a DLC perspective.”
Other details about the game are mentioned in the preview, including that the single player mode can be played fully offline, though racing in user-created race challenges will be encouraged. Player-made events can be based on a number of different parameters including car type, track, time of day, weather and so on, and apps outside the game can also be used to create challenges.
Evolution will be publishing its own season of league racing for players to tackle through online events and challenges.
The game isn’t a simulation-based racer, and so won’t occupy the same space as Gran Turismo – it’s more arcade-style and friendly, and things like car damage won’t have an impact on handling.
Release details are currently under wraps, but it’s likely we’ll find out alongside Sony’s other announcements at E3.
