The upcoming racing game Driveclub for PS4 is boasting exceptional realism in vehicle renderings and a unique scoring system that "doesn't revolve around coming in first," along with a central social element to cooperation and competition as showcased in this trailer.
Graphics look pretty impressive to me, and gamers who have been lamenting a lack of the team-verses-team experience usually monopolized by shooters will be stoked to finally give it a try in racing. Will cooperative battling will be portable to this genre?
The "Challenges" focused scoring system is a bit of a shake-up as well, taking some emphasis of finishing races in first in an attempt to appeal to a broader range of gamers as explained here:
The game's slated to be released October 7th.
