At tonight’s PlayStation meeting, Sony revealed Drive Club, a game that has existed as a concept for over ten years. Drive Club is your traditional racing game, focused on the best cars in the best locations, but Drive Club also puts an emphasis on team-based play. The exact details of this focus are not yet clear, but they surely will be soon enough.
Drive Club will feature access from other devices such as smartphones, so you can access your account and clubhouse from anywhere in the world. They make a big deal about the extreme detail of the graphics, which unfortunately will go largely unnoticed for their extreme development cost. They then talk up the experience, such as “breathing.” Sounds like a lot of hyperbole for what seems to be a pretty generic game, but I’m willing to bet Drive Club will pleasantly surprise us all.
