Get behind the wheel as DRIVECLUB revs its engines for a follow-up season of edge-of-your-seat racing.

Combining the stunning graphical power and interconnectivity of PlayStation 4 with the unparalleled immersion of PlayStation VR, DRIVECLUB VR transports you to some of world’s most stunning locales in some of the world’s most powerful production cars.

Experience Canada’s Fraser Valley or Japan’s serene Lake Shoji like never before, with a brand new suite of features including a “cruise control” mode that will let you take in the sights at your leisure and “Virtual Passenger” that will let you relive your best laps from the passenger seat.

A new selection of urban tracks swells the total number to a staggering 114. Strap into one of 80 iconic high-performance cars to screech through corners, blaze along straights and fight the finish line as though you could reach out and touch it.

If you want to try DriveClub VR before buying it, the racer will be included on the PlayStation VR Demo Disc in both North America and Europe.
