11 seconds of new Driveclub footage [Update 2]

'Lighting and atmospheric optics about to receive upgrade.'

Evolution Studios has shared a new 11-second gameplay video of Driveclub on the game’s official Facebook page.

“This is a glimpse of #DRIVECLUB in action,” reads the text accompanying the video. “The video was captured direct from #PS4, showing a cool #PS4SHARE moment from a race up on a 7,703 ft tall mountain in Norway.”

It continued, “The sun, the clouds and the ambient lighting inside the car will all look better soon, because we’re about to upgrade the lighting and atmospheric optics. When we do, we will share a full race with you. You won’t have to wait much longer.”

Watch the footage below. Driveclub is due out in early 2014.

Update next day: Evolution Studios posted another 10 seconds of gameplay footage today. I don’t want to make a new post, because it’s 10 seconds.

“More wheel-to-wheel gameplay from #DRIVECLUB, captured direct from #PS4,” Evolution said in the Facebook post. “When you race with the AI, drivers will take risks and exploit mistakes just like you would, which makes for some lively #PS4SHARE moments.

“As well as the lighting upgrades we mentioned yesterday, we also want to let you know that the AI and the audio are still being improved too, because we care about even the smallest details. You can expect to hear better engine and collision sounds in the game, which we’ll keep showing you more of during development.”

Watch the footage below.

Update 10/27: And another six seconds have been shared today.

“A rare glimpse of a #DRIVECLUB stampede in Bandipur, a tropical dry forest region in India,” said Evolution. “This is another #PS4SHARE moment, showing gameplay captured direct from #PS4.

“As well as the lighting upgrade, AI enhancements and audio improvements we’ve told you are coming, we’re about to start improving the reflections in the mirrors too – so this video doesn’t represent the final game.”
