OK, so if you haven’t bought Driveclub so far and you forgot to check out the news, you should know the game was firstly released without its main breakthrough feature - the dynamic weather system. Recently though, Driveclub received a massive 1.4 GB patch, which finally brought it to our expectancies.
Don’t get us wrong, we had the occasion to test the game in its initial release form and that wasn’t bad at all regarding the graphical part. It’s still by far one of the best-looking racing games out there.

And it doesn’t feel bad also. Although the developers put their blood and sweat into the eye-candy part, they haven’t forgot to slide in a decent physics system, solid racing mechanics and the trendy social events. But more on that can be read here in our friends’ review over at Softpedia.

What were you saying about that weather system?

As with the new weather system, it really improves the overall gaming experience and you should also know that it’s fully adjustable in certain modes. You can choose to race on bone dry asphalt or flick the thunderstorm switch and soak everything. Of, course, there’s the third option that leaves the game to make realistic transition from sunny to pouring rain depending on altitude, temperatures and nearby water basins.

The game perfectly manages to simulate wet surfaces depending on the amount of rainfall, an effect which can be seen at its best right down on the asphalt. Puddles will naturally form or disappear along with the warmth of the sun and yes, the game uses individual water droplets, both in the case of falling rain or those that form on the cars.

Unfortunately, we couldn’t take a screen capture out of our PS4 to show you all the features here, but you can see most of them in this little video bellow.
