Gran Turismo 7 is the eighth major entry in the Gran Turismo series. Developed with the aid of Polyphony Digital, a studio inside Sony Interactive Entertainment, the sequence first launched in 1997 on the first PlayStation console and has offered over 80,000,000 copies globally since.

For GTPlanet’s whole overview and first impressions of the game, be certain to watch our significant video below

Release Date
Gran Turismo 7 officially launched on PS4 and PS5 on March 4, 2022.

It had long been rumored that GT7 would be a launch title for the PlayStation 5, and the reality the game was once one of the first published for the platform helped feed that rumor. Later advertising positioned the title in 2021, originally in the first half of the year however leaning out to a general 2021 launch later on.

That got here earlier than Sony published production delays due to ongoing international events, resulting in the shift to a 2022 window, and the last confirmation of March 2022 in the September PlayStation Showcase.

Features
The hub for GT7 is a brand new dynamic World Map. We’ve viewed a few iterations of this so far, however,
the Gran Turismo resort you see above is the last form.

It consists of locations for all the main gameplay aspects, which gradually unlock as you develop thru the early components of the game, with the all-important “GT Cafe” dead center.

The village really has its own day/night cycle, and there’s one different refined dynamic feature: as your player level (Collector Level) increases, your home garage adjustments from a small building to a car collector’s dream warehouse.

Campaign Mode
GT7 brings back a traditional Gran Turismo marketing campaign mode, however, it’s a little different than you may be used to.

The simple principle is the same. You begin out as a beginner with a low-powered vehicle and head via entry-level races, licenses, and challenges to progress to higher levels.

Where it’s modified is how you go about this. Rather than jumping into races at unique levels locked in the back of licenses, every circuit hosts its very own individual race events and championships. The tracks themselves are originally locked, however, you can again get an entry by way of working via “menu books” in the GT Cafe.

That’s set up as an introductory and educational tool, which requires you to achieve certain matters collecting so many cars of a given type, passing a sure license test, tuning a car, winning a specific race, and doing so rewards you by way of unlocking features and circuits, alongside with different prizes.

Licenses and Missions are additionally on hand in their personal hubs, and the circuits host their very own Circuit Experience, time trial, drift trial, customized race, and arcade race events.

One significant feature of the single-player mode is automobile collection. Every car has a Car Collector Point value related to it (one point per full thousand credit of the new or equivalent price), and the extra you accumulate the greater your Collector Level. This replaces XP from previous games, so you’ll want to purchase and win lots of cars to level up.

Vehicle Tuning and Modification
This feature additionally returns after an absence in GT Sport, permitting gamers to modify their vehicles with the engine, suspension, drivetrain, and chassis parts, alongside tires.

There are 5 different grades of aspect type sports (or “entry”), club sports (or “city”), semi-racing, racing, and extreme and you can solely gain get right of entry to the higher grade items by way of elevating your Collector Level.

Various parts are as you’d expect, with simple tuning items like brake pads (from GT7’s technical partner in braking systems, Brembo ) and soft street tires at the Sports level, and the most radical upgrades at the Extreme level.

The Extreme section consists of new engines and whilst we’ve seen engine swaps teased we’re but to see simply how this may follow in the game or how far-reaching it is.

GT Auto

GT Auto returns too. In previous games, this was a place where players could wash their cars, change the oil, apply for new paint jobs, change the wheels, and fit visual tuning parts, and these functions all return under this umbrella.

There’s a maintenance and servicing section that allows you to take care of wear and tear, and also fit wide-body kits. The customization section houses wheel changes, custom body parts (including headlight changes), and paint and livery editing which are now separate functions.

Finally, there’s a section for personalizing your driver avatar, with new wearable items and a livery editor for your suit and helmet.

Used Cars

Used cars were entirely absent from GT Sport but return in GT7 in a couple of different ways.

Firstly there’s a regularly used car dealership, which stocks older cars and used versions of some of the new cars you’ll find in Grand Central. These latter cars will have a few miles on the clock, but they’re around 20% cheaper than the new alternatives.

The stock in the Used Car Dealership periodically rotates, and sometimes cars will appear to be sold out or as “limited stock”. It’s unclear how this functions precisely, however, the stock rotation looks to be connected to time spent at the track.

A second area is called “Hagerty Collection”, and this stocks more expensive “legends” machines: race models and rare and exclusive cars. The stock here rotates also, but you’ll need a sturdy wallet to even look here as cars cost upwards of 250,000cr and are priced dynamically using Hagerty’s real-world Valuation Tool.

Livery Editor

GT Sport’s livery editor function returns as part of GT Auto, giving GT7 the first combination of visual parts upgrades and a full livery editor in the series.

The editor looks to be almost identical to the version found in GT Sport but with a couple of tweaks to improve precision when placing decals, and some new areas for decals like vehicle windows.

Notably, players will be able to import their GT Sport liveries and decals into GT7, by an automatic process that carries over any shared items.

Gran Turismo Cafe

This new feature for GT7 is really the core of the single-player game. The official site describes it as a place to “help players navigate through the beginning of the game”, with guidance on how and where to collect groups of vehicles of historic relevance.

In reality, it is the main part of the game that you need to progress through to gain access to everything. The Cafe will serve up “menu books”, which consist of challenges that the player needs to achieve, with icons guiding you to where you need to go to do so.

This could be a collection of cars they should try to gather, basic game functions like washing your car or gaining a license, and myriad other things. Completing each book grants rewards which include unlocking tracks and game features in the early stages.

As with other sections of the game, there’s an in-game personality the cafe’s owner, Luca, in this case, to tell you about the things you need to do and the results. In the case of car collections, that will include the history and significance of the vehicles, and sometimes even the people responsible for creating the cars, including designers, will talk to the player about the vehicles.

There are more than 30 of these books, and completing them all will reveal what Yamauchi calls a “so-called ending”, presumably unlocking the “Finale” trophy and ending movie, though he also says GT7 doesn’t really have a defined ending

Dynamic Weather and Time
Polyphony Digital has worked with atmospheric information from a vast range of sources, which include NASA, to be able to replicate true skies and lighting conditions, taking into account aerosol particle counts.

We’ve additionally seen dynamic surface moisture indications in the second trailer, and PD has extra recently verified that rain can fall and the music can dry.

All circuits will feature dynamic time running from morning to evening, and dynamic weather switching between sunny and cloudy. However, solely some will have full-time cycles presently verified as Daytona, Le Mans, Nurburgring, and Spa and solely some will experience rain and dry cycles.

Online Multiplayer

Two areas of the new main hub refer to multiplayer modes. The first is a dedicated Multiplayer icon, under which it’s likely you’ll find all of the various types of casual online racing. There’s also an icon depicting the Gran Turismo world champion trophy, which probably represents the competitive online modes.

Yamauchi has stated that the online offerings in GT7 will be equivalent to those of GT Sport, so we can expect a return of things like the Daily Races, Time Trials, and the important official Online Championships.

Music Rally

This brand-new feature for Gran Turismo 7 will see players driving not against the clock or opponents, but music, and it’s the very first thing you’ll encounter in the game.

Players start out with a number of “beats”, which depletes as the music plays; each beat of the song takes one beat off your limit. Your goal is to get to the next checkpoint to replenish your beats before they run out. You’ll need to drive as far as you can before reaching zero beats.

Naturally, you’ll be able to drive in a more leisurely manner to songs that have fewer beats per minute, and slightly more frantically if the music gets really fast. In essence, it’s a checkpoint rally in the style of GT6’s Sierra Rally, but with semiquavers instead of seconds.

The idea is to allow people to enjoy the music, which they might not ordinarily listen to while trying to set fast laps, in a fun environment, and also make a mode that kids can get involved with.

Other Features

Brand Central, Scapes, and the Discover section – for finding other users’ liveries, decals, replays, and photos – all make a return from GT Sport, though Discover is now called Showcase.

Performance Points return from GT5/GT6. This was a method of rating cars according to theoretical performance capability. It does not appear to replace GT Sport’s car classification and Balance of Performance systems, rather work alongside it to refine what vehicles may be allowed into a given race; we have already seen cars that were Gr.X in GT Sport racing with Gr.1 machines, and a Gr.3/Gr.4 mixed class race.

Unlike earlier games, which relied on a formula based on the age of the chassis and drivetrain type, modified by the parts fitted to the car, GT7’s PP calculation comes from a simulated lap run in the background each time you make tuning changes to your car.

Driving Wheel Compatibility

When the PS4 came out, fans were dismayed to find that PS4 didn’t support many popular PS3-compatible wheels. However, Sony has confirmed that peripherals supported on PS4 will continue to be supported by PS5.

Gran Turismo has always supported a wide range of wheels and has officially partnered with Fanatec for the wheel of Gran Turismo 7. This will be the Fanatec GT DD Pro, though you’ll need to wait until just after the game has launched to order one unless you’ve paid for express shipping.

Fanatec has also supplied official GT wheels previously, in a more unusual capacity. The brand stepped in for the 2019 GT World Tour Tokyo event after Thrustmaster discovered a fault with the supplied T-GT wheels.

PlayStation 5 Technology

Players who opt for the PlayStation 5 version of the title will see some benefits over the PlayStation 4 version.

Obviously, the first of those comes in the department of graphics. While all versions of GT7 should run at 60fps in a maximum resolution of 1080p on PS4, 1800p on PS4 Pro, and 4K on PS5 & PS5 players will also have a special ray-tracing mode outside of regular gameplay.

This enables real-time ray-tracing, a technique for calculating the path of light rays as they reflect off objects. It allows for more realistic lighting and “inter-reflection” (where parts of an object can reflect off other parts, such as door mirrors reflecting in a car body). The ray-tracing mode will be available where 60fps isn’t necessary, such as in Scapes and race replays.

PS5 also supports 3D audio, using a technology known as Ambisonics. This turns the equivalent of a 16-channel audio output (on PS4) into hundreds of channels, taking information from around the vehicle in three dimensions and as it reflects off other surfaces. This will be best experienced using headphones like the official PlayStation 5 Pulse items.

In addition, the PS5’s high data transfer rate SSD will cut loading times by an order of magnitude. Whereas it would take up to a minute to load a track in GT Sport, the PS5 version of GT7 could load it up in a second, according to Yamauchi.

there are the DualSense controller’s haptic functions. GT7 will use the feature to transmit vibrations at 20-200Hz to allow players to feel things like the road surface, front tire slip, and the resonance of the car body itself. Yamauchi states that the adaptive triggers will feel slightly different depending on the car too.

Car List

GT7 launched with a stable of 424 cars from 62 manufacturers. Although there hasn’t been any specific announcement on post-launch content updates, we know that PD will support GT7 with more content just as it did with GT Sport.

For the most part, the car list is the same as that of the predecessor title, although there’s a handful of cars that haven’t made the transition. That means that the 424-strong car list consists of roughly 330 cars from GT Sport and more than 90 cars that are both brand-new and returning to the series having skipped out on Sport.

Over time this list will expand with updates, and we’ll mark DLC cars on the list with an asterisk.

It’s important to note that not all vehicles are available all the time. Only cars newer than 2001 are available in the main “Brand Central” area of the game, while older, regular cars — including some from 2001 and on appearing in the “Used Cars” dealer, which has 15 cars at any one time and rotates its stock list at a rate of about three cars a day.

More exclusive, valuable, and famous machinery appears in the Hagerty Collection/”Legends Cars”, which has a stock of five vehicles at any given time, switching out at about one a day and subject to dynamic pricing. Some new cars in Brand Central can only be purchased by seemingly random “Invites” too.

We’ve flagged these cars on the list with appropriate markers: (N)ew, (U)sed, (L)legends, (I)invite. As yet we haven’t seen all of the Used or Legends cars, so we’ll update this list as we learn more. There are also 97 cars available as prizes — of which you can win a maximum of 91 for events in GT Cafe.

Track List

At launch GT7 has 34 circuit locations and 97 courses, matching with the confirmed official tallies in both regards. Of course, we’re also expecting these numbers to rise with post-launch support.

As with the car list, the majority of these will be directly from GT Sport, though most have been visually reworked. Sport’s final tally is 29 locations and 83 routes, which means five more locations and 14 tracks.

We already knew four of the new circuits, with Daytona coming back from GT6, and long-serving original tracks High-Speed Ring and Trial Mountain returning after skipping a game. A trailer in October 2021 also strongly hinted at Deep Forest Raceway’s return with a neat easter egg, and that was later confirmed.

However, the fifth location looks to come from the separation of the Sardegna location into two, with track and offroad courses counted as different locations. That means that the Apricot Hill teasers, appearing in a similar form to the teasers for Daytona and Deep Forest, won’t be fulfilled at the launch at least.

That leaves six layouts, which come by way of new routes at the Autodrome Lago Maggiore (East End and West End) and Alsace (Test Course) locations, with reverse variants.

The full launch day list is as follows, with circuits that didn’t appear in GT Sport highlighted with asterisks.

Critical Reception

The review embargo lifted on March 2, and thus far it seems that GT7 has been very positively received across the various media outlets and reviewers.

At present, the scores across review aggregator sites are hovering at around the 90% mark, which makes it the highest-scoring GT game on any of the last three console generations. The majority highlight how the game folds together the best of previous GT titles and how it performs on the PS5 hardware.

In GTPlanet’s own review, we gave GT7 4.5 stars out of five, equivalent to 90%.

Trophy List

As with all PlayStation titles since 2009, Gran Turismo 7 has full support for Trophies. There are 54 for you to pick up in total 53 from gameplay and the “Platinum” for collecting all the others with some familiar tasks to get through in order to acquire them.

Surprisingly, there are only two Gold-tier Trophies, with one for gaining golds on all of your license tests, and the other a hidden Trophy for reaching the ending movies. There are also only a handful of Silver-tier rewards too, with the overwhelming majority being Bronze.

Thankfully the marathon online-focused challenges from GT Sport have gone. They contributed to the incredible rarity of that title’s Platinum trophy, requiring a significant number of online wins and pole positions. For the most part, the GT7 challenges are less of a slog, although there are a couple involving driving for certain distances that will require more than a little time!
