Polyphony Digital has not missed its usual appointment every month to prepare a new update for Gran Turismo 7 and thus expand its content even more with a few new features. In fact, the new one that will be available for free download tomorrow, February 21stit will be the version 1.29 and it will come full of surprises.
To begin with, the most important of all is that it will bring compatibility with PlayStation VR2, the PS5 virtual reality device that will hit stores on February 22. In this way, the emotion of racing can be experienced even more realistically with optimized HDR, with intelligent eye tracking and compatibility with 3D audio to make the experience more immersive.
The only thing that the device will not be compatible with is the split screen mode for two players, although it will allow take a look at the collection of cars in high definition in different scenarios and I can choose the point of view, either from the inside of them or from the outside to see how they look on the outside.
Beyond all this, the update will welcome the event Gran Turismo Sophy Race Together. This is a mode that can only be played for a while and in which it will be possible to compete against an artificial intelligence racing. The purpose is to transmit more than ever what it is to compete against the machine and incidentally so that the creators of the game can use that data for future installments of the saga.
In another vein, the grand valley circuit, one of the most classic of the franchise that has always been present since the first Gran Turismo, has returned completely renewed with new sections, curves and more challenging areas. In it you can compete with any of the vehicles that have been distributed to date or with any of the following that will arrive tomorrow:
- Citroen DS 21 Pallas ’70
- Honda RA272 ’65
- Italdesign EXENEO Vision Gran Turismo
- Porsche 911 Carrera RS (901) ’73
Finally, we must not forget that the Scapes mode has all the necessary tools to photograph the cars in very impressive moments and thus obtain shots worthy of being framed. Especially with this update that adds the “Drifts” and “Move the camera up and down” options.
