Dynamic weather/snow as well

 

We've just confirmed that DRIVECLUB will have dynamic rain and snow, which will affect car handling. Plus it looks amazing ;)

It looks very nice visually.

That is something you can appreciate while watching the game in motion.

Just a note, it turns out that DriveClub will not be getting those weather effects at launch. They will come in an update 'shortly' after launch:

I'm not sure why they don't just wait until that is ready, they already delayed it once to make it better.

I highly doubt they'll look that good.

New video/interview, but it has footage throughout talking about dynamic weather

 

 

The lighting with dash cam looks droolworthy

Agreed and we're all used to that by now..our industry and hobby are now just like Maxim and FHM...touch up galore. Of course when you actually meet the object of desire in real life sometimes they look even better au naturelle, sometimes they...don't look that good.

Looks like they might be having issues with background texture popping, take a look at mountain around 1.45

Yeah that was your average texture pop, at least we know this IS actual gameplay now...you get pop on any platform and regardless of spec, it's like the bane of graphics. Occasional is fine, most games don't really have it bad - like RAGE bad on the day it launched, which was patched couple days later. Hopefully Driveclub will get this minimized before launch as well.

Call my a cynic but those look like bullshots to me. I doubt we will see it look like that in-game. Perhaps only in some kind of enhanced Photo mode like Forza had.

"It's all being complemented now by a full weather system being prepared for release soon after launch, and being shown off for the first time at E3. On the Scottish glens of Loch Duich, turbulent weather rolls in, skies thickening before bursting onto the roadsCrowds at the side of the track reach for their macs and umbrellas, winds tug at the trackside scenery while puddles form in the divots and dips of the road surface, as well as across the grass of the glens and across the gravel - Evolution's very, very proud of its gravel, and rightly so..

Over in Norway, dawn breaks over powdered mountains, sending a dreamy purplish blue out across the environment. The heat from the sun dynamically melts the snow, with northern-facing surfaces reacting first. As that sun sets and a storm rolls in, road-signs are reflected in the slicked tarmac, while headlights catch individual rain droplets. The attention to detail is underlined when Evolution pauses the action and sweeps through the static action, ascending up through the clouds - DriveClub's game world is rendered all the way to the heavens, some two kilometres up."

Weather system due AFTER launch? Shouldn't it be a core mechanic? E.g weather affecting handling etc? What are they smoking? Sounds like it is a rush job :/

A rush job? You do know its delayed a year, right?

If Forza can release without core mechanics so can drive club. Am I right,?

Yeah and needs another year by the sounds of it.  Releasing a game and having core game engine mechanics as post-release DLC is awful.

Yeah... But they all do it.

Besides a dynamic core feature it is not.
