We've probably long passed the point where we should be praising DriveClub's visuals, but it's an agonisingly slow news day and we figured that this clip was worth a post. Prior to the racer's servers exploding, developer Evolution Studios talked a lot about the title's dynamic lightning and volumetric clouds – but what do these visual flourishes actually look like?

Well, this timelapse video should give you a decent enough idea. It shows sped up shots of several scenes from the game, and it makes for a really rather impressive watch. While it's not something that you notice quite as much in the heat of a face-off, the theory is that no two races on the same track will ever be the identical, because the lighting conditions will always be different. Nifty.
