Driver: San Francisco
Driver Teaser Wheelspins Out of the Ubisoft Garage
Written By
View author's profile

There's a Driver teaser site with a live-action trailer riffing the original Driver's opening sequence, showing an anonymous, incredibly skillful wheelman skidding around in a sexy Ford Mustang, which speeds from 1999 to 2010 and transforms into a yellow Dodge Challenger - the iconic muscle car used by Kowalski in 1971 car chase classic, Vanishing Point.

Counting down to the big reveal at E3, if you go onto the Driver Facebook page and click on the 'Like' button, you can find out the mysterious driver's identity. It turns out that original Driver star John Tanner is making a comeback for the reboot, which takes place in (presumably modern day) San Francisco. Also, note the San Francisco 49ers keyring. 

You can see the trailer via this link to the Driver teaser site, and then link through to Facebook to see the extended Tanner ID card version of the video. Now go! Put the pedal to the metal!

Hopefully it's more like Drive 1 on the Playstation. Clocked up so many hours on that bad boy.

It just clicked, everything that happens in that video is what you had to do in the original Driver game during the test.

Driver 1 was actually just pure awesome. Never played the others (apart from 3, but that was shit), but if this is anything like the first, COUNT ME IN! :D

By the way, you can find out the identity of the driver by following the Facebook link on that site.

Let's just say I'm quite happy.

@9; It's to drum up interested and to basically say "Hey guys this is going to be Driver 1."

@ #9...Really??? Did you play the original dude? How can that not make you nostalgic for the game.

I thought that trailer was one of the best teasers they could give for this game. It gets me all amped up and excited to play it.

That's the damn tutorial level from the first game! I failed that level so many times... One hell of a traumatic experience for me.

@15 - well said my friend, well said!

Im looking forward to this, i recognised it when he was going through around the concrete posts, but it truly hit home when he crossed it off the list! I hope they do this game justice, it deserves it!

Now i just have to hope someone will redo Destruction Derby (or a new and improved flatout!)

Aww, I was hoping for something like Driver: Parallel Lines. That was my favourite Driver game by far, absolutely loved that game.

Oh well, this will have to do.

Is this going to be a full remake of the first game, but made to look more like GTAIV ? I hope that you can actually get out of your car unlike the first Driver game.

Anyway, I'll be keeping this on my radar as I liked the first Driver even though it was a tough game !

Completing the Garage on PC was near impossible even with a pad. I had a mate who i sat and watched complete the last mission with the President flawlessly on PSX, then brought him round to mine to do the garage on PC and he couldn't get past it either... So i never got into it

Always had a soft spot in my heart for the driver games except I disliked the second one they made on the original Xbox.
