Mercedes Releases World’s First 360-Degree Video Captured In A Racing Game

Despite not winning over as many reviewers as the Gran Turismo gaming series, Driveclub has still managed to sell over 2 million copies world wide.

Looking at this 360-degree footage might help you understand why so many people adore this racing game. Aside from the beautifully crafted supercars, you get to experience intricate online play as well as dynamic weather such as rain and snow, plus a day-night cycle that may or may not remind you of Atari’s Test Drive Unlimited 2.

Even though it’s not an “open world” game in itself, Driveclub still offers plenty of driving modes for all users to enjoy. In this video, you’ll get to see some dynamic weather at work as well as a few cameos from a bunch of other Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

Of course, in the middle of all this 360-degree action is the Mercedes-AMG S65 Coupe, which at certain points is surrounded by the likes of the old C63 AMG Coupe Black Series, the SLS and at one point something that looks a lot like the AMG GT, though it’s hard to tell from those angles.

Currently, those that own a PS4 and have bought this game can experience a wide range of Mercedes-Benz AMG models such as the AMG GT3, AMG GT S, CLA 45 and SL 65 45h Anniversary Edition, aside from the ones we mentioned before.

As always, these types of videos are best enjoyed when viewed on a mobile device, so that you can tilt away at it, instead of dragging your cursor across the image as you would on a PC.
