Driveclub runs at 1080p/30FPS, director says it's 'absolutely' the best thing for the game


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.

Only 30FPS? MK8 does 1080p and 60 FPS ;)

I know a lot of people have said, "Well it's just another racing game" same can be said for any game released, "it's another FPS" "it's another RPG" but I'm really interested to see how the online side of this works, from what I've read so far it's sounding very interesting!

You said it, Wii U has more games running at 1080p 60 FPS than Xbone and PS4 combined ;)

Forza 5 is 1080p and 60FPS on Xbox ONE, and that is down to the Cloud. Without the cloud they would not have gotten it to be 60FPS

Good old Tony... The developers of Forza 5 stated themselves that the cloud meant it was a lot easier and quicker to create the online features meaning they could spend more time on making it 1080p and 60fps. So actually, if it wasn't for the fact that they release a new Forza every bloody year (meaning strict time restraints) they could've achieved that regardless of the cloud. The cloud has nothing to do with the resolution or fps. Read the statement above properly, they could've made it 60fps but it would've affected other areas of the game like level of detail, they've gone with what they decided works best all round, and its looking pretty damn good

Either way Wii U is clearly the only true next gen console! Will you buy me one Gloria? ;)

Haha... oh dear. Gloria wrong yet again. Mario Kart 8 is 720p native res, not 1080p. The Wii U has one game that runs both 1080p native and 60fps: Rayman Legends (Which runs at this even on PS3/360 as well it's worth noting). Nothing else. Oh, and Tony, Forza 5's framerate had nothing to do with "the cloud", and everything to do with the notable graphical downgrade the game received between it's E3 2013 unveiling and it actually hitting store shelves.

If PS4 had the cloud or they delay the game further then Drive Club could get 60FPS too? How many Wii U games have 1080p and 60FPs that have also been released on Xbox ONE and PS4? How did Thief do on Wii U for example?

Developer prioritising resolution over framerate in a racing game... complete and utter failure.

Gloria, have a read: http://www.destructoid.com/mario-kart-8-is-stunning-and-fierce-in-hd-272799.phtml?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter - take particular note of the part that states "The graphics are crisp, detailed, and very dense in design, and not to mention this game runs at a rock solid 60FPS and at 720p."

Eurogamer says 1080p http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-04-03-gorgeous-mario-kart-8-retro-tracks-compared-to-originals

Well, they're the only ones saying it, and even the comments in that article are filled with people pointing out that they're wrong in making that claim as well. All media released for MK8 so far(Screens, video) has been 720p so far, and there hasn't been a single mention of native 1080p by Nintendo themselves, when it was something they were regularly touting when Wind Waker HD was being pushed. If you have any solid verification on the matter though, I'd be happy to be proven wrong.
