The Long-Awaited Return

The Long-Awaited Return

March has arrived, and with it, the long-awaited next instalment of the Gran Turismo franchise is finally here. Available for PS4 and Ps5, Gran Turismo 7 is the eighth main chapter of the series, featuring over 420 cars from more than 60 brands to suit every gamer’s taste and preference.

The number and variety of car options have always been a big selling point for the GT series, especially for those who love building their own virtual garage. Brand Central is the place for purchasing around 300 vehicles produced in or after 2001. The lineup in the Used Car Dealership is said to be updated every day, and players have the chance to grab used models at a lower price. The fun lies in the brand new Legendary Car Dealership, as it offers rare and iconic cars with high historical value, such as the Jeep Willys MB from 1945, Mercedes S Barker Tourer from 1929, and Aston Martin DBS from 1964. The offers are always changing as only five vehicles are listed at a single time — you’re going to need deep pockets to obtain sufficient credits in order to pick one up, though.

The level of customisation is also the highest it’s ever been, while the Museum and Café sections are great for finding out more about the history and culture of different automakers. A new play mode named Music Rally has also been introduced for music lovers, as players must drive according to the beats of the song.

With tracks in 34 different locations and 97 unique layouts, together with time and weather simulation models, no two races are ever the same.

The PS5 version of the game makes full use of the Haptic Feedback and Adaptive Triggers of the DualSense controller — players will sense a vibration frequency matching the situation when things like tyre lock occur, allowing them to feel the car’s behaviour and the road surface more accurately. 3D Audio is also supported on PS5, which controls the direction of the sound coming at the player in order to put the final touch on this new step up in console-based simulator accuracy and realism.
