GAMERS, start your engines – there’s a new Gran Turismo game on the way.
We’ve put together a quick guide to the Gran Turismo release date, news, modes and platforms while you wait for launch day.
What is Gran Turismo 7?
Gran Turismo is an iconic video game racing series dating all the way back to 1997.
And Gran Turismo 7 is the latest and greatest entry to the franchise, due out in 2021.
Importantly, it’s the first in the series to debut on the next-gen PlayStation 5 (as a console exclusive, no less).
Like previous entries before it, GT 7 will be a standard racing sim with stunning graphics.
The popular GT Simulation Mode is returning, as well as special events, the driving school, car tuning, a used cars dealership and more.
Sony has also built extra functionality into the game for the new DualSense joypad that ships with the PS5.
You’ll also enjoy real-time ray-traced lighting effects, 3D spatial audio, and reduced loading times.
The game is expected to run in glorious 4K resolution at 60 frames per second on the PS5, with support for HDR to boot.
Gran Turismo 7 release date – when is it out?
The game was first announced during Sony’s PS5 reveal on June 11, 2020.
Sadly, Sony didn’t announce a release date to go with it.
Worse still, there’s been no word since about when the game will be out.
All we know is that it’ll launch at some time in 2021.
In other news, HOAR’s favourite alternative to a games console is the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset.
Grab a VR headset and you’ll be able to play the legendary Beat Saber – like Guitar Hero, but with lightsabers.
And Dell’s Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition is a gaming PC powerhouse that crushes both the new consoles.
