PS4 Exclusive DriveClub Honks Its Horn at ESRB Ratings Board

Arguably one problem with the PlayStation 4’s success is just how secretive Sony’s being at the moment. Don’t get us wrong, it makes sense to replenish store shelves before dropping a bunch of exclusive game details – but it’s really frustrating knowing that great content is right around the corner, and we’re not allowed to peak behind the curtain.
One such game that’s been stuck in a security sealed showroom pretty much since its announcement last year is DriveClub. Yeah, we’ve been privy to a couple of early gameplay demos and even a handful of share button clips, but we bet that if you counted up all of the original footage that we’ve seen, it probably sits somewhere around the 15 minute mark.
Scarily, the game could be with us any day now, too. Speculation suggests that the next-gen racer is on target for its parent console’s 22nd February launch in Japan, meaning that the Western release can’t be too far behind. And a recent ESRB rating has added fuel to that line of thought, revealing that the semi-simulation driving game is good to go in North America.
The documentation itself is pretty predictable, but it does hint at some kind of user-generated content. We spoke to community manager Jamie Brayshaw earlier in the year, and he told us that you’ll be able to create custom car liveries for your team, so we assume that’s what’s being referenced here.
With hardware slowly flooding into stores around the world – and the game presumably now almost finished after its delay – we’re hopeful that we’re going to get a proper look at this soon. While we haven’t seen much, a lot of the more recent videos have looked very impressive indeed. Is this a title that you’re eager to park in your PS4 forecourt?
