You were all waiting for it, it’s now official, PlayStation seems to have confirmed a definitive date for the release of the seventh opus of Gran Turismo. The world’s most popular car simulation game will be released for Playstation 4 and 5 on March 4, 2022. The announcement was made during the Playstation Showcase, an online event that features trailers for new games that will launch on PS5.
The new trailer for Gran Turismo 7, which lasts just over three minutes, mixes cinematics and scenes from the gameplay.
The first part of the teaser opens with a series of spectacular images highlighting technical attention to detail to make a specific model like the Porsche 917 Concept. The first few minutes, we also discover Toyota Supra Racing, a great classic of the Gran Turismo saga.
Once the cinematic side has passed, the music resumes and the sequences mixed between the game menus and the gameplay begin. Here we see some of the cars that will be featured in the game including the Nissan Skyline, Toyota GR 86, the Toyota GR Yaris, the Mazda MX-5 and various other sports cars.
Ferrari and Lamborghini also present
For fans of the two transalpine manufacturers, it is impossible not to notice the presence of the Ferrari FXX K, filmed both on the track and in its cockpit. The other protagonist of the trailer is the Lamborghini Huracán, which will be fully customizable, like most of the cars in the game.
Gran Turismo 7 will focus even more on car customization with a more complete editing system compared to previous opus. There is also a “Photo Trip” mode, where you can take photos of your car in the most beautiful places in the world, recreated with near-perfect graphics.
However, do not forget that patience is a virtue, and that it takes when you expect a Gran Turismo. The game has already been postponed once due to the pandemic, and given the constant delays experienced by Poliphony Digital, let’s say that another delay won’t really surprise us, especially since the production of the PlayStation 5 has had to hard to take off because, as within the automotive industry with the semiconductor crisis.
