The latest presentation from Sony State of Play offered a closer look at the cars, tracks and game modes that Gran Turismo 7 will be unveiled when it launches on the PS5 and PS4 on March 4, 2022. In addition to offering a deep car simulator experience with a huge amount of customization options for each car, there are some new and returning features to give returnees fans (or first time players) have a lot to do.
Starting with some key highlights of the show, the game will offer over 400 cars on launch day, along with 34 racetracks and 90 track layouts. There will be multiplayer for two players with a split screen (along with online play) and like most PS5 games, Gran Turismo 7 includes a frame rate mode of 60 frames per second or a beam tracking mode that limits to 30 frames per second. Sony did not share technical details about the PS4 version of the game.
The game will have some other exclusive features for the PS5. The DualSense controller’s haptic will feel different depending on the surface you are driving on. The haptic will also be affected by engine and drive vibrations, along with the overall resonance of the car’s body. The adaptive triggers of the controller will be used to simulate the unique braking system of each car, as well as pulsation to simulate anti-lock braking systems.
In addition to a campaign in which you will rise in rank and earn credits to spend on better cars, there is a Café mode in which you can fulfill car-specific goals while learning insights into each historical model from people, responsible for their design. Whether you’re new to automotive culture or a fan who wants to learn more, this seems like a quieter part of the game.
Gran Turismo 7 focuses on music with the introduction of two features, Music Replays and Music Rally mode. For music replays, you can save a replay of a race that is tuned to music with randomly selected camera locations. The replay is cut out and rotated to the music, which is set as a backgammon to make them more exciting to watch.
Music Rally is probably the most arcade mode Gran Turismo more. The purpose of this game mode is simply to enjoy music while driving. You start the race and to maintain momentum, there are checkpoints where you fill in a timer that decreases. The challenges of a time attack are not exactly my idea of a relaxing time, but we’ll see how that turns out in the final product. I was hoping for more than a Flight Sim-as a free device that completely eliminates heads-up display, with music playing in the background.
The state of the game does not discuss whether Gran Turismo 7 there will be realistic car damage modeling – a feature long-time fans wanted – although the game offers deeper cosmetic customization. You will be able to add stickers and stickers to the cars, as well as adjust the racing suit and helmet to your liking. Your creations can be shared with other players through an in-game platform.
Given that this was the great performance of Sony Gran Turismo 7, we may not hear much more about this until the game comes out. But since the launch is in early March, at least you won’t have to wait too long.
