2007-06-15 03:12:40 PGR4 Dynamic Weather Interview (video)

Ben Ward: There are 10 different types of weather:

* Clear: A normal, sunny day. Your cornering will be sharp, assuming you have the skills.

* Overcast: There will be lots of cloud cover, but no change to your vehicle dynamics.

* Light Rain: A little drizzle, but nothing to change your driving style too much. The track surface will be slightly slippery, and you’ll find that too much gas will lead to your backend sliding around more than usual.

* Heavy Rain: Lots and lots of the wet stuff. Your visibility will be reduced, and you’ll be peering between frantic windscreen wipers when using in-car view. Deep puddles form around the track, and should be avoided at all costs.

* Wet: The aftermath of a heavy rainfall. Clouds are still brooding in the sky. The track is wet, but the puddles are dissipating and everything is slowly drying up.

* Storm: Danger time. Rain, clouds, thunder, lightning. The sky is black, and your chase camera will be obscured by heavy rainfall. Keeping your car on the track will be difficult… but racking up the sliding Kudos won’t be!

* Light fog: A slight haze rests over the city, giving a slight reduction in visibility. It does not affect vehicle dynamics, but stay on your toes and don’t let any corners creep up on you.

* Heavy fog: A huge cloud descends over the track. Visibility is severely reduced, and finding your way is difficult. On some tracks you can drive uphill and rise above the fog, so use this opportunity to scout out the route below.

* Icy: A really, really cold day. Puddles are starting to freeze over, so watch out for them. You’d be silly to go out without wearing a bobble hat.

* Snow: The track is icy and slippery, snow is falling from the sky, and all the puddles have completely frozen over. You’ll need to drive slower and avoid the icy patches; even if it means straying from the racing line.

The trees need work. Only complaint, but other then that. Fantastic.

For some reason these videos really move me. I feel like I'm on the verge of crying watching them.. It must be a combination of the music and how much I like the series and long for its return I think. Hard to explain really, but very real. :O

The trees need A LOT of work. I have a feeling that's not going to change, so I guess we'll have to deal with them again. I wonder when a game like RSC will come and show all racing games how trees are done, just like last gen.

But yeah, it looks amazing and weather is going to add SOOOOOO much to the gameplay, wow. Amazing!

The trees only look 'meh' in the initial opening buildup, in motion they look fine.

What they need is something to make them rustle in the wind.

I doubt we'll see the trees change much. That was the only negative thing I could really point out about PGR3 visually as well. I don't think it's a big deal.. the ring in motion looked pretty decent in PGR3.. and the brief glimpses of the first person view in this look spectacular.

Yeah I think it's noticable only because you have that long panning sequence at the start of this. Once you see cars whizzing around and you "ride with them" I think it all looks smashing to be truthful.

But I AM biased...! :P

I blame the fact that they used speedtree to make like, one tree, and then copied and pasted it about a billion times :)

I hope it gets delayed to 2008, during a dry spell. Fall/Winter 2007 is too chock full of titles right now. come out this time next year, improve the trees, etc.

With Forza, DIRT, and all the other titles coming, I don't know if I'll have the time or wallet for PGR4.

PGR4 is why I'm not buying any other racers this year.. except FM2.

Based on that vid, the Car interior, Snow effects, lighting , horizons look awesome!!

But what on earth happened to the car exteriors, they look much better in PGR3. Trees seem to look worse too.

what? you're really gonna pass on Flatout Utlimate Carnage? I think this will be a tremendous fun-racer to fill the Multiplayer void until PGR is released ;)

SEGA Rally could also be good, if they do thingz right . . ..

This is going to be insane. It'll be like rallying, only on the road all the time!

The only thing I see wrong, Is that the precipitation still looks like its falling THROUGH the road.
