Driveclub trailer rendered in real-time, director confirms

Wednesday, 30th April 2014 01:04 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Driveclub’s new trailer is almost too beautiful to believe, but according to director Paul Rustchynsky, the racer lives up to its marketing materials.


Asked by a fan on Twitter whether the trailer was cut from footage rendered in real-time (as opposed to being a pre-rendered cut-scene), Rustchynsky said yes.

At this point we’d usually interject a “real time isn’t the same as in-game” caveat but the original question specifically asked about in-game, so there you go.

Rustchynsky said he’s hoping to get a full frame rate version of the trailer out, as YouTube is locked at 30FPs.

One other little tidbit from Twitter is that there’s no circuit editor, alas.

DriveClub hits PS4 on October 7 in North America, October 8 in Europe and October 10 in the UK.

Thanks, DualShockers.

    That picture of the BMW is from Gran Turismo, not Driveclub. The Gran Turismo logo is in the top right hand corner.

    I’m not sure Rustchynsky’s comment was relating to the frame rate lock of youtube, more like the compression artifacts that video’s suffer on the site.

    I don’t see why Driveclub can’t be a 1080p 60FPS game though given how close Infamous gets to 60FPS with as many particles on screen at once & rendering an open-world with such draw distances.

    Driveclub does look jaw dropping though, definitely the best looking racer on consoles to date.

    @2 it’s never going to be 60 fps. Everyone seems happy with 30 fps car porn these days. Except for me which is why I’ve stopped buying racers :(

    @tenthousandgothsonacid 60FPS was a target before launch of the PS4, so it’s entirely possible given the extra time Evolution’s had & still has.

    The only people that can state where the frame rate’s going to fall are the developers, nothing’s set in stone until they reveal the details.
