This is not a game. We repeat, this is not a game! In fact, Driving Essentials is a real driver training program which delivers a complete virtual driving instructor to Xbox One. Just remember… this is not a game – although you can earn Achievements!
Driving Essentials on Xbox One is something that the newly licensed or totally novice driver will want to spend time with, running as your virtual driving instructor to put you through your paces and ensure that when you do hit the road for real, you’ll be in a much more confident place.
Taking you through the most basic of driving skills, before moving on up and introducing more advanced skills and dangerous situations, Driving Essentials should come across as the name suggests, an essential for any new driver.
You see, you won’t just find yourself trundling down an open freeway without a care in the world, and instead Driving Essentials on Xbox One will thrust you into the madness of city driving, see you navigating rural backstreets, and working your way around commercial situations. Throw in night driving, the challenge of snow, fog and rain, and you’ll quickly understand how this is a full on interactive driving experience.
If you want a game, you should go and purchase Forza Horizon 4 right now, however if you are after a way of sharpening up your driving skills – and wish to earn some glorious Gamerscore and Acheivements in the process – then Driving Essentials is for you. Just remember, this is NOT a game!
A price tag of $59.99 may not be to everyone’s liking, and it may be more ‘fun’ to spend that cash on something a bit more enjoyable, but there is obviously a place in the market for a driving instructor like Driving Essentials, much in the same way as Rocksmith nails the guitar tutoring way of life.
If you wish to brush up on your skills and think that Driving Essentials is for you, then head to the Xbox Store right now. Just bear in mind that this is an experience which is currently limited to the North American region.
Oh, and if you hadn’t worked it out by now… THIS IS NOT A GAME! Apparently.
Driving Essentials, the premier driver training program, is now available on Xbox. This is not a game, but a real driver training program which, until now, was only offered on larger simulator systems. Driving Essentials offers a complete training program for novice and newly licensed drivers. A virtual driving instructor will take a new driver through a complete curriculum, starting with basic driving skills through more advanced and dangerous situations such as distracted driving. Driving Essentials provides a wide variety of roads and traffic scenarios, many of which would be too difficult or dangerous to train in a real car. The driver will experience city, highway, commercial, residential, and rural environments. In later lessons the driver will face the challenges of rain, snow and fog, as well as day and night scenarios. This is a fully interactive driving experience, not just classroom knowledge. You will be behind the wheel from the very first lesson. • Complete driver training curriculum • Virtual driving instructor • Autonomous traffic • City, Hwy, Commercial, Residential, Rural and Off-Road environments • Weather – Rain, snow, and fog • Distracted driving • Ability to experience risky scenarios in a safe environment
