New Driver to inject a bit of comedy
Reflections, the studio behind the upcoming Driver title, Driver: San Francisco has said that they hope to bring a bit more comedy to the series.
Martin Edmonson, co-founder of Reflections has admitted that they have chosen to move away from the seriousness of the dialogue in the previous entries in the series.
He said: "We have focused back on the original core feel of Driver, that sense of being down in the thick of a street level Hollywood car chase and all of the exhilaration that comes with that. Driver is unique in that respect actually and it's great having people play the game and declare 'Driver is definitely back'. Other games have encouraged us, though, to take a lighter, more humorous approach to the game and character dialogue Driver in the past was always pretty serious and that seems to be going down well with people."
"But the other side to 'competing' is innovation, both technically and with gameplay, something Reflections has always strived to do. Whilst maintaining the familiarity and feeling of past Driver games, Shift [which lefts players 'possess' and jump between cars] is something totally unique to the driving genre," Edmonson added.
