DriveClub videos give you a glimpse of dynamic weather system

PlayStation 4 exclusive DriveClub won't be getting a dynamic weather system until after the game's launch, but developer Evolution Studios released some new gameplay videos today on Instagram and Facebook to show it off.

Evolution debuted DriveClub's dynamic weather engine during E3 2014, but told Polygon at the time that the system wouldn't be ready in time for the game's release, which is set for Oct. 7. in an interview with the PlayStation Blog today, DriveClub art director Alex Perkins explained that the weather conditions will run the gamut from a drizzle to a downpour and flurries to a blizzard.

"You can expect it to change dynamically and unpredictably while you race — because we've designed it to be just like real weather systems," said Perkins. "Lots of things play into this, like elevation, wind speed and temperature."

Perkins gave the example of driving in Norway, where the snow will get heavier as you go up a mountain. The conditions can even get to the point of zero visibility. Players will be able to fully customize the weather themselves, and create unique challenges to share with friends.

You can see DriveClub's weather in action in the two videos below, and check out another one on Facebook.
