Following the example offered by Lance McDonald with the Bloodborne patch at 60fps, the content creator known as Illusion has created an amateur update for DriveClub that unlocks 60 frames per second in the late Evolution Studios racing game.
As we can admire in the video packaged by Illusion, the DriveClub custom patch manages to tap into the additional computational power of PS4 PRO to increase the framerate without compromising on excessive resolution. Just like Lance McDonald’s update for Bloodborne, again the DriveClub 60fps patch runs exclusively on a standard or modified PlayStation 4 PRO console, so we avoid providing you with further details on the installation process.
To those who follow us, we remind you that in November 2020 the former director of Evolution studies, Paul Rustchynskydiscussed the possible Remasters or nextgen patches of DriveClub for PS5 stating that his latest racing effort, unfortunately, would no longer receive any kind of support from the original developers, consequently there would be no optimization in the framerate, in the resolution and in loading times.
As for Sony’s possible development of a sequel to DriveClub or MotorStormRustchynsky thought it right to point out that “their return is extremely unlikely”both because of the development costs to be incurred to re-obtain the licenses and, above all, due to the will expressed by the leaders of the Japanese technology giant to focus on Gran Turismo as a key franchise for PlayStation Studios racing games.
