Gran Turismo is a successful racing series for the PlayStation console. The first part was released 25 years ago in 1997. Now comes the seventh sequel and there is something to look forward to.
March 4, 2022 is the release date for a new episode of the legendary racing series Gran Turismo (GT). As usual with GT, you can play it on PlayStation consoles, specifically PS4 and PS5. Developers at Polyphony Digital released a new trailer a few days ago, as well as a list of new features that GT 7 fans can rely on.
The full predecessor of this new episode is not Grants, but Gran Turismo Sport which was released in 2017. The series focuses mainly on the online world, whereas Gran Turismo 7 will return to its roots. The new simulator already has more than 400 race cars, including more than 90 track layouts in 34 locations (more will be added after updates).
You will be able to buy a car from three different “dealers”. In one you get a new car, in the second for a cheaper used car and in the third for a rare historic car with a high value.
The novelty is the so-called GT Cafe, where players will receive the book “Menu Book”, which will help them collect cars and at the same time introduce them to the depths of the history of individual models. Another new and interesting mode is Music Rally, where your task is to cover as far as possible while listening to a specific song.
For photography lovers, there is a selection of incredibly realistic images of your car in more than 2,500 places around the world. In the case of the new Race Photo mode, you can pause the race you are participating in and take a live picture of it. Since Gran Turismo is available online, you can share your work with other players through your own storefront.
There is a big change in the weather. Now it could be that the tire grip affects the cold in the morning. You’ll even have a radar at your disposal so you can choose the right tire selection for the race. For some tracks, there will also be an all-day regime option, meaning you’ll be driving day and night, and the game will also show you that you may have been playing for a while.
Meteorologist himself, Michelin, as well as the face of the Gran Turismo racing series and seven-time Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton, contributed to this increase.
The newer PS5 will run at 60 frames per second. The player also needs to be connected to the internet, even if he only wants to play singleplayer. Developers want to prevent cheating in different career modes. It’s also important for Czech fans of Gran Turisma that new episodes will have Czech subtitles from the start. If you’re not into the single-driver campaign, there’s also multiplayer, which will offer countless adrenaline-pumping fun with players from all over the world.
You can buy Gran Turismo first on the PS4 console for CZK 1,799, for the latest PS5 console, the number goes up to CZK 1,999.
