DriveClub’s Snow Effects are Very Impressive

By   /   Sep 18, 2014

A new gameplay trailer for DriveClub has been posted online which gives us another look at the game’s stunning dynamic weather effects.

In the video, Game Director Paul Rustchynsky drives within Scotland and Norway. If the tracks don’t catch your attention, the thick sleet and snow breaking out in the second race will.

When the sun sets, each of the snow particles are dynamically lit up by your headlights, making the whole experience a most delightful and impressive one. Suffice to say DriveClub looks to have one of the most realistic snow simulations, at least in a racing game.

Unfortunately, the dynamic weather effects will not be available at launch and will be released sometime later, hopefully within the year.

Last week Rustchynsky announced the game to have gone Gold and hence will be releasing on time on October 7 for the PlayStation 4. If you’re a PS Plus subscriber, you’ll be able to download a free trial of the game the same day.

The game will be getting a lot of free content, including tracks and cars right from the game’s release next month until June 2015. The incentive was decided to help ensure the community does not get too bored with the game and stick to it over the course of the months. The game already boasts 55 routes and 25 tracks, but more free tracks and maps will be added post-launch.
