Driveclub will allow players to form clubs with up to six players tasked to complete challenges and take home accolades. The inspiration behind the tracks and environment for the game are from real places across the world. The game features dynamic weather and day-night cycle.
Paul Rustchynsky, game director of Driveclub, has made use of forums on NeoGAF and Twitter to answer some of the questions from fans.
He addressed the issue of missing shadows under some lighting conditions. Caas seem to float on the ashphalt, DualShockers reported.
His reply was, "I have to admit that it took me a while to get used to this, but it is entirely physically accurate – we don't use fake shadows or mask sunlight by ambient occlusion, which often hides this 'effect'... Under strong lighting conditions and from the right angle there won't be a shadow visible beneath the car... Nothing is faked or baked in this image either. Number plates have been obviously obscured though."
He also assured the fans that the team is improving the tunnel lighting in the game. And future game update will bring all the necessary improvements he said.
Players who have been asking for the split-screen feature can be happy to note the reply from Rustchynsky, "There are no plans currently, bit it's not out of the question."
Driveclub will be released in US on 7 October 2014; Europe on 8 October 2014 and UK on 10 October 2014, exclusively for PlayStation 4.
