Campaign mode returns

After focusing on online and esports play in GT Sport, GT7 will be a return to glory for the single-player experience that we all love Gran Turismo for.

Players will have 20,000 credits to start their journey with and need to buy a car to go racing in the Sunday Cup. It's then all about working your way up.

GT Cafe

The GT Cafe is a new game mode that will appear in Gran Turismo 7.

In this mode, players have to collect cars to earn rewards, while also learning about automotive history. This mode, which will be the game's main campaign mode, is designed to provide players a place to learn about cars and the cultural background behind certain significant models.

Trophy list revealed

We're now just three days away until the release of Gran Turismo 7! After copies of GT7 were accidentally sent by Amazon to some lucky players early in the US, the full Gran Turismo 7 trophy list has leaked.

In GT7, there are 53 trophies to collect including 47 Bronze, four Silver, one Gold, and one Platinum. With fewer trophies requiring online play, it should be easier for trophy hunters to get the Platinum in GT7 than GT Sport.

Best wheels for Gran Turismo 7

On PlayStation 5, DualSense support will add a new layer of immersion when playing Gran Turismo 7 on a controller. But to get the most out of it, you need to race with a wheel.

We've put together a handy buyers guide for the best racing wheels for Gran Turismo 7. From the entry-level RWA Apex to the premium Thrustmaster T-GT II, we've got every budget covered.
