    DriveClub is 1080p/30FPS locked

    Paul Rustchynsky 30 April, 2014 @ 4:22 pm 1.6
    We want to push the boundaries on PS4 with the visual detail in DRIVECLUB, so we’ve now locked the game to a rock solid 30fps. Doing so means that we don’t compromise on the staggering native 1080p visual quality or the seamlessly networked connectivity while you race.
    We’ve got a lot of experience at Evolution Studios and members of the team who worked on Gran Turismo, WRC, Grid, F1, MotorStorm, Project Gotham and more have all contributed to the handling dynamics. We’re confident that it gives everybody a fluid and authentic driving experience that is accessible for beginners, yet deep enough to satisfy even the most track-hardened racers.

    Didn't keep PGR from being an awesome game series. I suspect this game will do plenty well without 60fps. Of course, haters are gonna hate lol

    After seeing the graphics in this game that totally blow away the graphics in that other 60fps racing game I'm very happy. Plus day night cycles and dynamic lighting. Evolution said the 30fps is solid so thats good. I've always said 1080p 30fps was going to be the standard for these consoles anyway. But of course the haters are gonna hate. lol I cant wait to play this game. Looks amazing.

    It's F2P so no loss in checking it out. I'm still excited for it.

    I'm not a huge fan of racing or framerate, but from what i know it's best if such faced paced games are played on 60FPS. I think they should have lowered the graphics if it could achieve higher FPS.

    Uh, thats why it's only 30fps.

    When you are flying down a road at 100+ clicks you'll be less likely to notice how pretty the background is, but more likely to feel the framerate hold back your gameplay.

    The faster the game is moving, the more relevant framerate becomes.

    Need for speed Shift was 720p30. It was a great racer. Probably one of the best last-gen.

    1080p30 is perfectly acceptable. Begs the question of why they delayed in the first place, though?

    either way, im excited for this release.

    Meh. I'd rather have more car and track detail. The 60fps thing has never really been that noticeable to me. And when I'm racing at "100+ clicks" I do still see the environmental detail or lack thereof. But whatever, to each his own. I'm really looking forward to playing this.

    Evolution said it had to do with the social network features.

    Shame it isn't 60fps as racing games really benefit from that but no doubt it'll still be a really good game. As MC said, as long as it is stable.

One thing i hate about racers is how you're always looking dead straight out the front screen. in reality, you'd be looking where you're intending to go. whether your head moves, or your eyes, you seldom stay fixated on what's directly in front of you, you're always looking at either the apex of the corner, or your corner exit.

    and it took them a year? i call BS

    they probably wanted to avoid any issue with 'those' who's expectations exceed what's physically possible of a console so early in its lifetime.

    Probably did what shepard said and secretly added VR support

    I would be more upset about a more true to form simulator racer like Gran Turismo not reaching 60fps than a game like DriveClub. Not all racing games are the same.

    It would be cool to form a PSU car club once this game hits.

    It is not free to play actually. Sony allows non plus members to play F2P games but this is only "free" for plus members.

    I don't usually care about framerate, but didn't they say they were delaying to get it to 60fps? I guess it could have been for VR like said above, but just seems weird they wouldn't have said that in the beginning.

    i agree, PSU needs to totally destroy every other club in Driveclub.

    besides, you've got the best racer in the world right here, ME!

    Normally I'd agree but after experiencing Evolutions broken netcode in Motorstorm Apocolypse its actually not that hard to believe. lol Half the time you couldn't even access the servers or they would crash while youre in a race.

    Not trying to hate but after all the delays one would have guessed and expect they were focusing on important stuff such as locking in at 60fps and 1080p, not focusing on trying to make their 'social dynamic menu' which probably won't be something worth the wait, but still I'm excited to try this game.

    Probably delayed to pack it with even more content/cars/tracks and improved online competitive/integrated social features/ friend system. When sony delays something by almost a year, it means they think its going to be amazing if they polish it properly.

    if it was a crap no hoper, they would just push it out with no marketing and hope no one noticed.


    1080p 30FPS locked is good enough. Project gotham racing and need for speed shift are a testament to this.
