During Sony's increasingly hazy unveiling of the PS4 last week, we didn't get to see much of the Evolution Studios-developed racer "DriveClub" in action beyond an almost pornographically-detailed seat texture demo. But some of the assembled journalists did get some face time with Matt Southern, boss at the studio behind "World Championship Rally" and "Motorstorm," who laid out some of his team's lofty ambitions for the next-gen racer, which include Facebook challenges (it will have them) and trying to enhance the game outside of the game (hey, do you have a tablet?).
"DriveClub," according to Southern, will hit the sweet spot between racing sim and arcade title, part of the "everything to everyone" approach some devs are rallying around (this seems to be the vision of Bungie's "Destiny" as well). Ultimately, though, Southern was pretty tight-lipped about "DriveClub"--par for the course with anything involving the PS4, which Sony has been maddeningly evasive about. Still, if you'd like to hear about how a Sony console will be launching without a "Gran Turismo" title, read on.
