Gran Turismo 7: Release delayed, features, Career Mode, DualSense & more
Polyphony and Sony are brewing up the next installment of the amazing series. What can fans expect?
Those lucky enough to have a PS5 are having to wait patiently for Gran Turismo 7 to arrive.
Sony recently confirmed the game has been pushed back into 2022, so we still have some time to wait.
We’re not totally in the dark when it comes to GT7 though, so let’s take a look at what we know so far!
Latest News – GT7 features in haptic feedback video
You would think Sony has no need to market the PS5 anymore, but I guess they have to keep the hype up while supply is low.
A new trailer about the benefits of haptic feedback gives us a tiny look at Gran Turismo 7:
At the moment there is no official release date for Gran Turismo 7.
There were several PS5 adverts that quoted Gran Turismo 7’s release in “the first half of 2021”, but we now know otherwise.
The game won’t land until 2022, which is probably a delay of at least 12 months. That would put the release around June 2022, but Gran Turismo games have traditionally launched in the build up to Christmas.
We don’t expect to see a full release untile September 2022.
The announcement trailer was first shown way back in June 2020, and blew us away.
Since then several PS5 trailers have shown off very small glimpses of cinematic play, but we’be hand nothing as comprehensive as this. Revealing the return of Trial Mountain and lots of other key features.
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.
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?
A GT4-esque home screen showed off the return of a career mode!
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!
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.
GT7 will be more like old titles
One thing we wanted to see most in GT7 was the return of a true career mode that harks back to the ‘good old days’.
In fact, a return to the golden days of Gran Turismo wouldn’t go amiss. Well, it seems that is happeneing.
In a recent interview, Yamauchi said that “Gran Turismo 7 will return to the royal purpose of full volumes like [Gran Turismo] 1-4”. Exciting news indeed, as it seems the game we truly want is on the way!
