Rage quitting is one of the most annoying things about online gaming. The developers behind Driveclub are hoping to change that, with a system that rewards gamers for sticking it out and completing smaller challenges around the tracks they are racing on.
“In so many racing games there’s that ‘all or nothing’ mentality. One moment you’re in first place, and then suddenly you crash and you’ve lost everything. The preceding few minutes of superb driving count for nothing,” says Game Director Paul Rustchynsky.
“With DRIVECLUB, if you’re racing online and you make a mistake it’s not game over. You don’t lose everything and you’ve still got dynamic Face-offs to keep playing for."
In short, to keep players from quitting early, DriveClub plans to give gamers more things to aspire to than just getting first place. Check out three new screenshots we just added as well!
