Following multiple delays, Sony has revealed that the PS4 exclusive Driveclub is now on track for an October debut. Although the early buzz surrounding Driveclub has been somewhat mixed, the fact that Sony is willing to launch the game during one of the most competitive release windows of the year does seem to demonstrate its faith in the product. As reported by CVG, the publisher is also still planning to make a free-to-play version available to PlayStation Plus subscribers.
The latest (rather moody) trailer for the game begins with misty mountains and windswept highways, before dissolving into slow motion imagery of some of the most highly coveted speed machines. The almost pornographic camera lingers on the smallest details such as hubcaps and headlines. If you’re just a casual racing fan, you’ll probably want to skip to around 50 second mark, the point at which actual racing footage finally makes an appearance.
Development duties are being handles by Sony first party Evolution Studios, best known for its work on the MotorStorm series.
