DriveClub PS4

Wow! This may well be the biggest week for new PlayStation releases since the PlayStation 4 launched last year. Now that Destiny is out of the way, the holiday season is really kicking off in style – and this edition of Out This Week has a little something for everyone. Whether you want to rock your birthday suit in Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed, crouch behind the sofa in Alien: Isolation, or lose your mind in Spelunky, Sony’s suite of systems have clearly got you covered. There can only be one Pick of the Week, though...

Pick of the Week: DriveClub

Alright, hold your horns, we know that this was on your wishlist a year ago – but the lengthy delay seems to have served DriveClub well. Evolution Studios’ next-gen racer not only looks the business these days, but its handling model has also been tuned to absolute perfection, providing all of the weight of a real vehicle – without leaving you doing wheel spins in the dirt Gran Turismo style. Well, unless you want to, of course.

The Runcorn-based developer claims that this game’s interactive menu was the reason behind its delay, and it’s certainly stacked with social features that will keep you up-to-date with the progress of your friends. Of course, community functionality is pointless without long-term support, and the studio’s committed to that with a content schedule that spans new features such as weather, tracks, and cars. Want to know the best part, though? You’ll get a ton of stuff for free.
