So we’ve written a fair amount about DRIVECLUB, the upcoming socially-connected PS4 racing game, but we haven’t gone into a whole lot of detail about how its social aspects are going to work. To be honest, that’s because we don’t really know much about it beyond that gamers can form clubs and work together to earn accolades. Whatever that means.

The marketing people over at Sony clearly got the message that most people think “WTF is a drive club and why should I care?” when it comes to the game, and so they made these very helpful videos that explain the game’s social concepts a little better.

Neither video doesn’t feature any in-game footage or anything quite as usefulĀ as an actual demonstration of how it’s going to work, though, it’s all done with animations. I must admit, it all sounds cool, I just wish I could picture what it’s going to look like in-game. Guess they want me to buy it or something.

Anyway, here are the vids. Enjoy!

How clubs work and why you should be in one:

How face-offs and challenges will work:

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.
