DriveClub 'Challenges' hope to appeal to all

Sony has released a new video in which it explains the challenges in DriveClub.

Whether you are first or last, the game will reward you with FAME for completing Faceoffs and Challenges, therefore as you race, you’ll be given the option of taking part in smaller challenges on certain sections of the track – maintaining a high average speed, holding a racing line, or pulling off an drift. Put in a good performance and you’ll accrue points for your club and set new markers for friends to try and match.

“I like the idea that that you don’t have to be in first place,” explained Game Director Paul Rustchynsky to the PS Blog. “I want everybody to enjoy the thrill of racing.

“I play a lot of racing games and I’m a pretty good driver, but I’m not always the guy who’s in first place. I like to have fun and take risks, rather than obsess about perfecting every single corner. The problem for drivers like me, and I think we’re in the majority, is that racing becomes too intense and intimidating when it’s all about winning.

“It’s demoralising when you make a mistake and it costs you the race. With DRIVECLUB we challenged ourselves to design a better game that deals with this aspect of racing. What we’ve come up with is a racer that constantly gives you new goals to aim for, whether you’re way out in front of the pack or find yourself spinning out of control because you pushed your car a little too far."

DriveClub is out this October. Check out a new video explaining more and pre-order below.

It does sound interesting. I'm going to download it on PS+ and see what I think but at the moment I'm more interested in Project Cars which is due to release the following month, not to mention today's announcement of Forza Horzion 2, a title I'd personally take over either at this moment in time.

I've never much cared for Forza, and the fact that the sequel will be shackled to cross-gen limitations would be of much concern even if I was to be honest.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
