After presenting DriveClub VR as a tech demo as far back as last fall’s Paris Games Week, it seems Sony is moving forward with a full virtual reality release. A listing for DriveClub VR popped up from the ESRB, listing plenty of features not originally included in the tech demo.
While the tech demo was only a single race, on a single track, the ESRB listing says, “Players can engage in traditional races, time trials, and drifting challenges.”
The Sony exclusive racer DriveClub released in 2014. Following a delayed release and a troubled launch, the game never quite found the audience it was looking for, leading Sony to close developer Evolution Studios last month. “Evolution has been an important part of SCE Worldwide Studios for over 10 years—working on ground-breaking racing titles like WRC, Motorstorm and Driveclub,” Sony said at the time. “This decision [to close the studio] should not take anything away from the great work that Evolution has produced.” Not long after, CodeMasters absorbed the racing developer.
PSVR, Sony’s virtual reality headset, is set to release for $399 this October. With E3 just around the corner, look for more information on PSVR and DriveClub VR in the months ahead.
