Gran Turismo 7 Will Bring Back Many Features That Were Missing in GT Sport

Gran Turismo 7

Polyphony Digital revealed their next project Gran Turismo 7 which is currently under development for PlayStation 5. The trailer was released during the recent PlayStation 5 reveal event and it appears to be finally going back to its roots. While the current-gen GT Sport was a half-baked title, it still looked amazing and had the best driving mechanics one could ask for in a racing simulation game.

Gran Turismo 7 is officially going back to the numbered series and the trailer also showed that tons of missing features are coming back to the franchise with the release of Gran Turismo 7. While most of the UI and other mechanics look like a copy/paste job from the GT Sport, it will further add in more features that the series is known for from its very first title back on PS1. Not a lot of details have been shared about the game at this point but the trailer showed us plenty of things worthy of our attention.

The very first thing that you will notice is that one of the most iconic circuits The Trial Mountain is coming back to the franchise. For some reason, this track was missing in GT Sport but long-term drivers would be glad to know that this track is coming back to GT7. However, this track certainly looks a little bit different. For starters, the straight-section looks stretched from GT6, and also the chicane on the end of the track is now a proper corner with tighter bends so you will not be able to blast past this chicane at full speed.

Careful braking and cornering will now be required for this particular section of the track. Apart from these visible changes, the rest of the track looks pretty much the same. It certainly looks beautiful. Another thing that I noticed during the trailer was that one particular scene shows that it is cloudy but then the clouds move away and it becomes sunny. This might mean that dynamic weather or time could be coming to the game however it will depend on how much power PS5 is able to make to allow the game to run at 60fps with all the visuals features added to the game.

Fans will be glad to know that the Simulation Mode is coming back to Gran Turismo 7 as well. This mode will allow you to create your own legend as you start with slow cars, make money by taking part in races, championships, and challenges and then move above the ranks by getting better cars and improving your driving skills along the way. The parts shop is also back along with different other features such as GT Café, GT World, GT Auto, and Used Cars.

A full-fledged GT game also means that we will get tons of more vehicles in the game as well and not just cars built for racing. Some of the new cars in the trailer include the Porsche 917K and Ford GT40 Mark IV. Along with the cars, the game should include plenty more racetracks in the game as well. These additional details will be revealed as we get closer to the game’s launch. At this point, no release date or window has been announced for Gran Turismo 7.
