As we head into 2022, Gran Turismo 7 is tantalisingly close. We’ve got an official release date and a bunch of new gameplay trailers to go on and we can’t wait to try it out next year.

Developer Polyphony has kept fans waiting for GT7. With the game originally announced for a June 2021 launch, we sure have had a long wait. From what we’ve seen so far though, this extra time has been put to great use and we can’t wait to try GT7 out.

So what can players expect when it comes to Gran Turismo 7? Let’s take a look!

Latest news – Daytona PS5 Gameplay

With just under two months until the game launches, it’s no surprise that we got some new GT7 gameplay to start 2022. This trailer didn’t disappoint either, as these four minutes around the Daytona International Speedway are the best we’ve experienced so far:

Release date

Gran Turismo 7 finally has an official release date!

Following several delays and trailers with ‘2022’ as the release date, it’s incredibly exciting to have an exact date to be looking out for.

Those wanting to race on PS4 and PS5 can get their hands on Gran Turismo 7 on 4 March, 2022.

We now also have pre-orders and news about editions, so things really are ramping up.

Pre-Order

If you know you’re going to be sinking your teeth into the next iteration in the Gran Turismo franchise, then it may be worth preordering.

Thankfully, these have just gone live, so you can do so now! You can pre-order the game from the PlayStation Store here.

The game will cost £59.99 on PS4, £69.99 for the game on PS4 and PS5, and an awesome 25th Anniversary Edition for £89.99.

A game like no other before

Polyphony CEO Kazunori Yamauchi popped up again on the official Gran Turismo YouTube channel to discuss all the benefits of the PS5 and how real GT7 will feel.

The DualSense controller should revolutionise GT7 for controller racers, with the adaptive triggers letting brake lockups and grip loss be truly felt rather than just a visual.

Trailer

The announcement trailer was first shown way back in June 2020 and blew us away. We then waited months for more information about the game.

We saw a few smaller glimpses of gameplay, but nothing quite like the PlayStation Showcase.

The latest trailer showed a re-designed home screen, gave us a taste of the livery editor, and showed off a lot of the cars and tracks that will feature in the game.

Gameplay

We’ve got a lot better idea about the gameplay in GT7 now that the first onboard clip has dropped. The graphics and sound look and sound next-level and we can’t wait to play it.

Those significant AI improvements that Kazunori Yamauchi has been talking about are in full flow here too. The AI genuinely look a lot better and more difficult to pass than previous games.

The DualSense controller, with its haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, will make GT7 a new experience for pad players, while Thrustmaster has developed the T-GT II specifically for GT7. The new wheel promises improved responsiveness and real-time force feedback.

There is also dynamic weather. This is more than just rain appearing out of nowhere. You’ll spot clouds moving ominously in as you race, track temperatures will fluctuate and impact your grip, while some areas of the track will dry faster than others based on the surrounding environment.

PS4 vs PS5

Initially advertised as a PS5 exclusive, it’s been known for a while that Gran Turismo 7 will be available on PS4 as well as the new console.

There will be no features or modes that are exclusive to the PS5, and the two generations of the console can race against eachother online. However, in the battle of PS4 vs PS5 it isn’t really close.

PS5 will have 4K resolution and lightning-fast load times, while the PS4 will hit 1080p and feel sluggish when loading in comparison. Surprisingly, the framerate is also the same between the two titles!

However, there is confirmation that the PS4 version will be $10 (and we assume £10) cheaper than the PS5 one. Players will also be able to upgrade from PS4 to PS5 with the only extra fee being making up the $10 difference.

Home Page

The home page is back and better than ever before, with, as promised, an aesthetic akin to Gran Turismo 4.

It showcases a number of game features including a tuning shop, car dealerships, and more which we’re sure will be revealed soon.

Campaign Mode

The career mode of old makes a return, and we’re incredibly excited to see it back.

Along with images of the new home screen, we caught glimpses of how drivers will progress through the various stages of racing.

It really does seem like we’re getting a Gran Turismo game that harks back to the awesome titles like Gran Turismo 4 and 3.

Tuning Shop

Speaking of high horsepower vehicles, the tuning shop makes a triumphant return.

Gran Turismo Sport saw the mode removed, so we’re happy to see it back in GT7. There will also be plenty of buying options, with second-hand sellers, showrooms, and dealerships to browse.
