With the release of the PS5 successfully out of the way, all eyes turn to one of the console’s leading exclusives.

This is, of course, Gran Turismo 7, the latest racing game from Polyphony Digital.

The latest Gran Turismo title boasts phenomenal visuals coupled with a return to the GT franchise we have come to love.

Let’s take a look at what we know so far!

Latest News – Release window shifts again

The latest news is none other than a new PlayStation 5 advert that moves the GT7 release date window!

Shown during the NFL playoffs, clips of Gran Turismo 7 were shown once again, with a byline that read “Gran Turismo 7 – Anticipated first half 2021”.

There was no new gameplay, but it just keeps the hype train rolling!

Release Date

At the moment there is no official release date for Gran Turismo 7.

The latest from PlayStation is that the game will arrive in the first half of 2021.

I WANNA PLAY!: There is still no official release date for the game

There were rumours of a launch day release, aligned with the PS5, however, this hasn’t happened.

Text in the latest PlayStation advert says the game will arrive in the first half of 2021.

Based on that we expect to see it in June 2021.

Trailer

The announcement of the trailer was shown back in June this year, and blew us away. But there is some new footage available for us to drool over.

Mixed in with lots of other games, there isn’t a lot new here and it is all cinematic, but it certainly gets the blood pumping.

RAY-TRACING: The game looks visually stunning

With lifelike lighting and shadows, the game is shaping up to be an absolute blockbuster.

PS5

The PS5 has brought us a number of exciting hardware changes.

Not only is there the increased power of the console itself, there is also the new controller and headset.

Boasting some exciting features such as adaptive triggers and haptic feedback.

NEW TECH: The latest DualSense controller is a game changer

This should help immensely with immersion as you truly feel the track beneath the car.

The Pulse 3D headset will also help, as you will be surrounded by the chaos of racing!

Gameplay

We’ve only seen a trailer so far, so it’s hard to truly gauge how the game feels.

However, the visuals are stunning regardless, so we’re sure the game will look good.

GLORIOUS: GT7 looks every bit the racing game for next-gen

The gameplay will feel new and fresh regardless for controller players, thanks to the aforementioned PS5 controller features.

When it comes to new features there are plenty on the wishlist, but what do we know so far?

Career Mode

A GT4-esque home screen showed off the return of a career mode!

GT7 Career Mode
STARTED FROM THE BOTTOM: A fully-fledged career mode returns

The mode may be called campaign mode, but a return to a fully-fledged career mode is welcomed by all fans.

We hope to see the return of second-hand Honda jazz’s with 450hp!

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. Hopefully it will be accompanied by an expanded garage of cars.

Tracks

All the gameplay from the reveal was done on the returning fan favourite, Trial Mountain.

There was a menu shot that showed Northern Isle Speedway, Blue Moon Bay Speedway, and Willow Springs which will all return from GT Sport.

In addition, there’s Daytona, which was in GT6 but is not yet in GT Sport.
