Are you looking forward to the PS4 exclusive DriveClub but annoyed with Sony that no release date has been announced yet? Well be annoyed no longer, Sony has finally broken its silence by releasing a trailer that tells you exactly when to expect the game: October 8, 2014.

Yes, even in South Africa. We checked.

In case you need a refresher, DriveClub is an arcade racer with a social bent that lets you form online car clubs with friends, challenge other clubs to beat your track times and much more. Think GRID 2, but with incredible next-gen graphics and social connectivity.

Even if the social aspect doesn’t flip your switches, there’s no denying that the game sports some pretty mouth-watering graphics: all of the footage you’re about to see was taken directly from the game itself. This is no prettied-up pre-render, and that’s amazing.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
