Aging hardware like PS4, Nintendo Switch can hold back LEGO 2K Drive
LEGO 2K Drive is bringing a fresh take on the arcade racing genre to PS5 and PS4 on May 19, and we’re excited to check out the AAA title when it does.
One interesting tidbit stood out to us Recent interview with VGC, however, when executive producer Mark Pearce hints that older generation consoles may be holding the title back. LEGO Drive 2K is not an open world game, and instead of being a seamless playspace, it consists of standalone biomes that you can fast travel between.
Pearce describes the situation this way, commenting that “we went through a lot of work and discussions about all the different ways we could do it. [an open world]And we all really wanted to [players] Just travel from one to the other. But… on some platforms, it’s just not… you can’t wait three minutes for someone to load something, right?”
