These guys are crazy.
DriveClub looks amazing, and that has to do with the amount of care that has gone into the details of the game, with each individual aspect of the game’s environment being rendered carefully to replicate and duplicate the real world experience. And when I say that they they have paid an excruciating amount of detail to all of these aspects, I mean it. For example, did you know that the clouds in the are all modeled in 3D, so that they can diffuse light realistically? And that they actually respond to and scatter properly as a result of, the wind, depending on its velocity?
Or, did you know that each individual light source on the race track is painstakingly crafted individually and rendered independently, so that you get a level of illumination that is unparalleled in any other game on the market? Or that car sounds in DriveClub are so accurate that BMW and Mercedes-Benz AMG have requested copies in order to replace the archived files they previously stored?
I mean, that’s some dedication to authenticity right there. Hats off to you, Evolution.
