With development budgets beginning to eclipse the Nürburgring in size, it looks like Evolution Studios will be aiming to make back some of its investment with an extensive DLC offering for PlayStation 4 launch title DriveClub. Speaking as part of Game Informer’s cover story, the company revealed that the racer will be one of Sony’s biggest from a DLC perspective, with plenty of additional cars up for grabs.
Elsewhere, the developer also mentioned that the title’s vehicle handling will sit somewhere between simulation and arcade – perhaps akin to Codemasters’ recent DiRT releases. You’ll be able to customise races by adapting the weather, time of day, and more. In addition, any progress that you make in single player and multiplayer will be tracked by a unified profile.
You needn’t worry about superfluous use of the touch pad, either. Currently the Runcorn-based studio is only using it for menus, though it is considering support for cameras, too. There’s plenty more information about the next generation title in the latest issue of Game Informer. You can find out how to purchase the magazine through here.
