When Gran Turismo 7 launches in March, you’ll want to know everything you can about Sony’s racing sim series, so keep reading to find out more.
Over 400 cars and over 90 tracks (spanning more than 34 locations) are included in the latest Gran Turismo game, which is expected to be the best and most realistic yet.
More about Gran Turismo 7 is being revealed by developer Polyphony Digital as the game nears its release, including its new and returning modes, gameplay, and how the PS5’s technical capabilities will be utilised – as well as much more. With all of this information, it’s safe to say that Gran Turismo 7 will be well-known when it launches on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 next month.
Polyphony Digital recently held a preview event for Gran Turismo 7, describing it as “the best of Gran Turismo through the ages,” with the latest entry “designed to celebrate all aspects of car culture.

Gran Turismo 7: cut to the chase
- What is it? A racing game with an emphasis on simulation
- When can I play it? March 4, 2022
- What can I play it on? PS5 and PS4
The Covid-19 pandemic impacted development of Gran Turismo 7, which resulted in a delay of its initial 2021 release date.
Gran Turismo was originally rumoured to be a PS5 exclusive, but Sony reversed course and announced that the racing sim would also be available on PS4.
Sony confirmed that a PS4 release was indeed on the way after outrage over Horizon Forbidden West’s PS4 to PS5 upgrade policy led to multiple rumours. PS4 Gran Turismo 7 players can still purchase an upgrade to the PS5 edition for $10 / £10 digitally, as Sony promised at the time.
GRAN TURISMO 7 TRAILERS
Sony hosted a special Gran Turismo 7 edition of State of Play in advance of the game’s March release, providing an in-depth look at its features, modes, and gameplay. See for yourself what I mean below:
Gran Turismo 7 – Powered by PS5 (behind the scenes)
Behind-the-scenes footage from December 2021 shows Kazunori Yamauchi talking about the “tangible” realism that the PS5’s power adds to the game.
DualSense controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers have been used, for example, to replicate the feel of the brakes. Additionally, the inclusion of Ray Tracing in addition to the previously mentioned 4K, 60fps, and HDR settings is cited as improving the game’s realism and “natural feeling.” Short clips of the game on PS5 interspersed with the interview are shown.
New gameplay at the Deep Forest Raceway
In December 2021, Sony revealed a new look at Gran Turismo 7, showing off a cockpit-view PS5 gameplay trailer set on the series’ beloved Deep Forest Raceway.
Porsche Vision GT
When Gran Turismo 7 was released in December 2021, Polyphony Digital released the Porsche Vision GT, a virtual car designed specifically for the game. It’s still unclear exactly what the car will look like, but you can see some of the design decisions that went into it in a presentation from Porsche. You can also check out the trailer for the upcoming release here:
Gran Turismo 7 – Tracks (Behind the Scenes)
An in-depth look at how Gran Turismo 7 tracks were created was discussed by Gran Turismo 7 producer Kazunori Yamauchi in a behind-the-scenes video. An interesting look at lighting conditions and dynamic weather can be found here, but the full track list hasn’t been confirmed or anything like that.
Gran Turismo 7 – Tunes (Behind The Scenes)
CEO Kazunori Yamauchi of Polyphony Digital re-emerged in November 2021, where he discussed his passion for automobile customization. Changing the way a car performs, looks, and feels on the road can have a significant impact on how it drives. You should be able to get the exact setup you want with GT7 because it has the most tuning parts available in the series’ history.
Gran Turismo 7 – Livery (Behind The Scenes)
Kazunori Yamauchi, CEO of Polyphony Digital, discusses the role of liveries in racing and how they can transform a blank canvas into a medium of expression in this trailer for GT7. More people should be able to design their own cars now that GT7’s usability has been improved.
Gran Turismo 7 – Collectors (Behind The Scenes)
What it means to be a car collector is explained by Polyphony Digital’s CEO Kazunori Yamauchi in this October 2021 trailer. It’s all down below.
Gran Turismo 7 x Porsche – first look
This is good news for Porsche fans, as Gran Turismo 7 will feature a wide variety of Porsche models, including the 917 Living Legend concept car, which pays homage to a car that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the 1970s.
Release date trailer
Playstation Showcase 2021 kicked off with the release of a Gran Turismo 7 trailer that showcased its cars, tracks and more. Finally, the game’s release date was given to us: March 4, 2022. Here’s a link to it:
Three minutes of Gran Turismo gameplay were shown off at Sony’s PS5 game reveal event in March of this year. In addition to seeing a race on the legendary Trial Mountain circuit, we got a good look at Gran Turismo 7.
GRAN TURISMO 7 CAR LIST
There will be more than 400 cars in Gran Turismo 7 when it launches, and more will be added in post-launch updates.
Brand Central, Used Car Dealer, and Legendary Car Dealer are the three car dealerships in Gran Turismo 7.
As of 2001 or later, Brand Central will be selling cars, with approximately 300 models to choose from. In addition, this dealer has a museum dedicated to each manufacturer, so players can learn more about their past.
You might expect that the Used Car Dealer specialises in used vehicles at lower prices than Brand Central or Legendary Car Dealer. Trends like the rise of Japanese sports cars could lead to popular used cars being sold for more money than they originally cost. Every day, a new car will be added to this collection.
Finally, we arrive at the pinnacle of the automotive industry. As a result, the Legendary Car Dealer is more expensive than the other two dealerships specialising in classic cars.
So, what vehicles can we expect to drive? Gran Turismo Wiki has given us a good idea of the vehicles that will be available in Gran Turismo 7 based on the trailers and showcases that have been released. So far, these are the vehicles we’ve seen:

GRAN TURISMO 7 GAMEPLAY AND MODES
Gran Turismo 7 brings back the World Map, a birds-eye view that serves as a hub for players to access all of the game’s content.
So, what can you expect? In its initial state, Gran Turismo 7 comes with over 34 locations and 97 layouts. There are a variety of real-world and fantasy tracks to race on in the World Circuits, including some of the most well-known tracks from previous Gran Turismo games like Trial Mountain, Deep Forest, and High-Speed Ring (all of which return with stunning visuals).
Time Trial, Drift Trial, Custom Races, and a Meeting Place are all new additions to the Gran Turismo 7 racing experience. With the Circuit Experience feature, you can practise your gripping skills while competing in the Sunday Cup and Clubman Cup at your favourite track! This means there will be over a hundred races.
Licence Tests and Mission Races will also be available to players. Mini-games are used to teach driving techniques from the ground up in License Tests. Races such as drag races, on the other hand, are not unique in their own right. Scapes, a character from Gran Turismo Sport, is also returning. For the purpose of taking HDR photos, players can use this custom photo mode to set up their favourite vehicles against a high-resolution photo backdrop.
There will be numerous ways to play and interact with others in Gran Turismo 7. To play with friends in real life, the game will feature two-player split-screen mode, as well as lobby and meeting places where you can meet up with people online. In Sport mode, you can compete against other players from around the world in a high-speed drag race.
For Gran Turismo 7, there is a new mode called Café, which is basically the game’s campaign mode. The Café in Gran Turismo 7 is a place where players can go to learn more about the automotive culture that permeates the game’s vast world. In addition to the 30 assignments in the Menu Books, the Café owner will explain the history and culture of the cars involved in each assignment when the player completes it.
In addition, the original designers of the cars you’re driving will stop by and appear in person to talk about their memories of the automobiles you’re currently driving.
Simulated performance point measurement will also be included in Gran Turismo 7 as a mini-game. A formula involving weight, power, and tyre grip is no longer used to calculate performance points, which show the car’s overall performance. These points are now calculated through simulation. Using a sim, Gran Turismo 7 calculates a car’s performance points in the background and displays the results. Players will be able to play a mini-game in which they compare their settings to the system’s base performance in order to find the optimal configuration.
Players will be able to customise their cars with over 650 aero parts, 130 wheels, and 1200 measurements of paint data. Also included in GT7 is a Livery Editor, which allows players to paint and decorate their cars, with a higher sticker limit and the ability to change your oil and wash it.
The Showcase feature in Gran Turismo 7 allows you to share screenshots, videos, and other user-generated content with your friends and the rest of the world, making it easy for them to find and download. Replays and photos are also included in this.
Finally, a new Music Rally mode has been added to Gran Turismo 7. The goal of Gran Turismo 7’s Music Rally mode is for players to simply drive along, take in the scenery, and, of course, enjoy the game’s soundtrack.
For the mode level, players must listen to a music track the entire time, with the twist that you lose ‘beats’ rather than seconds as you drive through it. Race over when your beats are depleted but if you can keep going without running out, you’ve done it. There are also “gates” (pink banners) that you can pass through while driving to receive additional beats.
It’s possible that some songs have more beats than others, while tracks with different tempo changes have beats that rise and fall in accordance. This mode will feature music from previous Gran Turismo games, but Polyphony has not confirmed whether all of Gran Turismo’s 300+ music tracks and 90+ race tracks will be available.
You don’t have to “driving fast” in Music Rally to collect extra beats; it’s all about competing with your friends, and how many beats you’ve gathered will be shown in the “Music Replay” after the rally is over.
There are a slew of modes returning and new ones appearing in GT7, which suggests that the series is returning to its roots. Prior to GT Sport and GT6’s launch, many gamers complained that there wasn’t a lot of content in the game.
GRAN TURISMO 7 NEWS AND RUMORS
Due to a breakthrough in artificial intelligence, Gran Turismo 7 players will be able to race against a superhuman AI competitor known as “Gran Turismo Sophy.”
Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital collaborated with Sony AI on GT Sophy, which has been in development for five years. One of Sony’s most advanced racing AIs, Sophy has been trained to win against the best GT Sport drivers in the world and uses an entirely new artificial intelligence algorithm that has made it possible for the company to create a sophisticated racing opponent.
Gran Turismo Sophy, unlike most AI opponents, reacts and drives like a real human and had to learn three essential driving skills using deep reinforcement learning (essentially, the process of repeating and learning countless scenarios until the best outcome is achieved).
Although GT Sophy will be available to race against in Gran Turismo 7, no exact date has been given as to when the AI will make its debut.
Graphics modes are two
A Frame Rate mode and a Ray Tracing mode will be available in Gran Turismo 7, making it possible to customise the game’s visuals to suit your preferences.
GT7’s standard frame rate is 60 fps, but Frame Rate mode aims to keep the frame rate as high as possible throughout the game, whether it’s during a race or a replay.
When a player’s quick response time is not required, such as in race replays or 3D stages or rendering for the Photo Mode, Ray Tracing mode applies Ray Tracing to these modes. Lighting and reflections are better reproduced in this mode.
Maximizing PS5’s Potential
Despite the fact that Gran Turismo 7 will be released on the PS4 platform, the game will make use of the PS5’s exclusive features, such as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers on the DualSense controller, a lightning-fast SSD, and 3D audio.
The PS5’s SSD will significantly reduce loading times. Gran Turismo fans will be relieved to hear that loading times will be a fraction of what they have been in the past, according to Sony executive vice-president Simon Rutter in an interview with The Guardian.
When you play Gran Turismo 7, you’ll be able to feel bumps in the road and see whether your tyres are slipping thanks to the PS5 DualSense controller and haptic feedback. With its many circuits, you’ll also be able to feel the vibrations that mimic a car’s engine, transmission, and body resonance.
When a driver applies the brakes hard, the anti-lock brakes (ABS) pump the brake pedal to slow the car down. This pumping action is similar to what the DualSense adaptive triggers can detect in different car models.
The PS5’s Tempest 3D audio technology will be supported by Gran Turismo 7. Players will be able to hear helicopters flying overhead, as well as the rain pelting their windshields and roofs as they race. Objects like fences, concrete walls, and other barriers will realistically reflect sound waves back to the listener.
Headphones are the best way to experience GT 7’s spatial audio, according to developer Polyphony Digital, who recently held a preview event for the upcoming racing game.
The wheel’s official design has been revealed.
To celebrate the release of Gran Turismo 7, Fanatec has unveiled the official racing wheel, which will set you back $699.95 / €699.95, making it more expensive than the PlayStation 5.
Direct drive steering wheels, such as Fanatec’s Gran Turismo DD Pro, allow gamers to experience the most realistic, next-generation driving experience possible. Polyphony Digital, the company behind Gran Turismo 7’s development, is credited with creating the wheel, which is included in the bundle along with the wheel base, steering wheel, and pedals, according to Fanatec. The wheel can be used on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. Pre-orders for delivery in March 2022 are now open.
Online play is the primary mode of Gran Turismo 7.
Internet connectivity is required to play most of Gran Turismo 7, including the campaign mode.
Kazunori Yamauchi, the series creator, told Eurogamer that in order to keep players from cheating, they need to be connected to the internet.
According to Yamauchi, “the requirement for the online connection isn’t specific to the Cafe. In order to prevent cheating by preventing people from altering the save data, an online connection is required.
Because it doesn’t use save data, the arcade mode of the game is the only one that doesn’t require a connection to the internet.
First look at Gran Turismo 7 pre-order and 25th Anniversary Edition goodies
Gran Turismo 7’s pre-order bonuses and a special 25th anniversary edition have been announced by Sony. You will receive the following items if you pre-order the game. Mazda RX-VISION GT3 Concept (Stealth), Porsche 917K Living Legend, and 100,000 in-game Credit for the Toyota Castrol TOM’S Supra (CR).
The 25th Anniversary Edition of Gran Turismo 7 includes a SteelBook case, 1,100,000 in-game credits, a Toyota GR Yaris with country-specific livery, 30 Manufacturer / Partner Avatars, the Music of Gran Turismo Official Soundtrack, and the same cars as the regular edition.
The unpredictable weather is back.
With Gran Turismo 7’s “real-time” weather and time system, you’ll be able to race from dawn to dusk, with both having an impact on driving conditions.
With the addition of an improved damage model and the absence of the feature in GT7’s predecessor, Gran Turismo Sport.
Crossplay has confirmed its participation in the event.
The creator of Gran Turismo 7 has confirmed that the game will be playable on PS5 and PS4.
Eurogamer spoke to Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi, and he confirmed that the upcoming PS4 and PS5 racing games will be able to compete against one another.
Is there a PlayStation VR 2?
PlayStation VR’s second iteration, known as PSVR 2, is set to be released by Sony. Gran Turismo 7 may not be able to take advantage of this new technology, as this announcement suggests. It appears very likely, given the success of Gran Turismo Sport on PSVR. However, Sony has made no official announcements as of yet. There are, however, encouraging signs. PSVR 2 will feature “experiences synonymous with PlayStation” in June 2021, which suggests games like Gran Turismo, which Sony has exclusive rights to.
In 2019, in a roundtable interview with GT Planet, Kazunori Yamauchi, creator of the Gran Turismo series, revealed that Polyphony Digital is interested in virtual reality when it comes to harnessing the power of next-gen consoles.
“The first thing that will be affected by more power is virtual reality,” Yamauchi said to GT Planet. In my opinion, there is nothing else that requires such a large amount of computing power.” For a driving game, VR is ideal. I’m a firm believer in the technology’s potential.
GPU power and the hardware for VR, including display devices, are critical to VR’s development.” Because there is always some kind of hardware limit in place, you can never have enough computing power to get the job done. Naturally, that will improve over time, and we’ll be sure to keep an eye on it.”
Considering that PSVR 2 is expected to advance the technology, it appears that Gran Turismo 7 may have some kind of VR support.
“No compromises” on the finer points
At the FIA Gran Turismo Championships in December 2020, Polyphony CEO Kazunori Yamauchi stressed the importance of attention to detail (via VGC).
“At Polyphony Digital, we’re always looking for the best,” Yamauchi said. There are no concessions that we are willing to make at this point in time. Everyone deserves the best from us. And it’s not just me who believes this; our company’s 200 or so employees do as well.
They say in Japan that “divinity comes from the tiniest of details, and it’s absolutely true.” Production style is how much attention you pay to the fine details, how to perfect it and hone it in, and applying an incredible amount of attention to this..”
Despite the fact that this is good news for Gran Turismo 7, it also explains why the game’s release date has been pushed back from 2021 to 2022.
