Driveclub Game Director Paul Rustchynsky has said that Driveclub will run at 1080p and 30 frames per second, adding that this is "absolutely the best thing," for the game.
“[Striving for 60FPS] was something that we stated as an early target to ourselves," he said in an interview with VG247.
"As we’ve got more familiar with the hardware, and also, looking at what we wanted from the game, we decided that 1080p, 30 frames per second is absolutely the best thing, because what that allows us to do is to deliver the most detailed cars in-race that you will ever have seen.
“It’s allowed us to create some of the biggest tracks you will ever see in a racing game, with the most visually-dense environments, as well as a full global illumination system which allows us to make time of day, where shadows are cast, full-on reflections. It’s allowed us to push all those various areas.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Rustchynsky also confirmed to that the planned free version of Evolution Studios’ PS4 racer is still on the cards and was not affected by the game’s delay.
“We wanted to make sure we could have a vast number of people playing the game on day one, to allow people to create connections between one another, form clubs, send challenges and so on.
“The PlayStation Plus edition is still the same. You’ll have full multiplayer access, be able to send challenges, create clubs – the only thing you’re going to be limited on is content, so that’s cars and tracks. But if you want the full experience, obviously Blu-Ray is the way to go where you get everything included.”
Rustchynsky also added that there will be new and free content post-release.
“It’s something we want to keep the Driveclub community active with, so month-on-month you’ll see new cars and new tracks added to the experience, so whether you’re a Blu-Ray player of PlayStation Plus edition player, you’ll be able to continue the experience. But there will of course be additional paid-for content as well, which will be release afterwards.”
Driveclub will launch on PS4 on October 7 in North America, October 8 across Europe, and October 10 in the UK. You can pre-order below.
