Replays are coming to Driveclub next week as part of the March 16 update and Evolution Studios has shared a preview of what a replay can look like in the game.
The nearly three minute video shows all of the four camera set types that can be swapped between when viewing replays. A entire replay can be watched from any one of these camera sets or they can be swapped between on the fly.
Here’s a rundown of all four cameras:
Trackside cameras: fixed position cameras from spectator view points that follow the action. They are centred around the driver you have selected at any given moment in the replay (which you can change at any time).
Vehicle cameras: fixed position cameras attached inside and outside the vehicle. You can cycle through these cameras at any time with the R1 button.
Gameplay cameras: the six gameplay cameras you’re used to while driving (bumper, bonnet, dashboard, cockpit, near chase, far chase). You can switch between these cameras at any time with R1 and of course rotate and look-back whenever you like.
“Replay” camera: this simply combines the 3 camera sets above and transitions seamlessly between them automatically. How it plays out is different every time.
Photo-mode can be entered from any camera at any time and players can pause, rewind and fast forward (with L2 and R2) to get straight to the best bits and relive them over and over from every camera angle. There is, however, only one chance to save a replay, at the end of the event, but they can be watched infinitely. 50 replay slots available to each player (and each slot can hold a replay equal to or less than 10 minutes long). Finally, like photo-mode, the UI can be hidden and the Share button can be used to save and share moments or races.
