Introducing the 'Gran Turismo 7' February Update: Adding 5 New Cars, and the 'Grand Valley' Track!
Gran Turismo 7 will receive an update on 21 February 2023.
The following is a list of contents included with Update 1.29:
1. Five new cars, from iconic legends to an Italdesign Vision Gran Turismo, will be added.
DS 21 Pallas '70
Honda RA272 ʼ65
Italdesign EXENEO Vision Gran Turismo Street Mode
Italdesign EXENEO Vision Gran Turismo Off-road Mode
Porsche 911 Carrera RS (901) '73
2. The 'Grand Valley Highway 1' race track will be added.
Track Length: 5,099m, Elevation Difference: 97m, Number of Corners: 18, Longest Straight: 995m
A Gran Turismo classic, Grand Valley returns to the series with an all-new look. The full 'Highway 1' layout is a challenging course featuring full-throttle high speed sections along with tight winding technical corners. The shorter 2000m 'South' layout features harsh elevation changes and blind corners to keep drivers on their toes. An expansive environment where the ocean meets the mountains, as well as large bridge and tunnel sections, make for a dynamic location that recreates the excitement of driving the world's great winding seaside roads.
3. 'Drift Stage' and 'Move the camera up and down' will be added as a featured Curation in Scapes.
'Drift Photography' will also be added with this update. A tutorial will be available the first time you play after the update, which guides you through the steps for taking drift photos. Follow the on-screen advice and have fun shooting the perfect drift shots.
4. Full PlayStation®VR2 support will be added (PS5™ console version only.)
As of this Update, Gran Turismo 7 will feature full support for PlayStation®VR2 (PS VR2.) As well as being able to experience all events (including online races) and game modes (with the exception of '2P Split Screen') with unprecedented realism, players will also be able to access the PS VR2 exclusive 'VR Showroom' where they can examine super high definition car models in a variety of environments and lighting conditions.
The game fully utilises the next generation capabilities of PS VR2, using optimised HDR tone mapping, eye tracked foveated rendering (a technology that renders areas of the screen that the player is directly looking at in high definition) and dynamic 3D audio support to provide the most immersive gameplay yet.
5. Experience 'GT Sophy' in the 'Race Together' limited time event (PS5™ console version only.)
'Race Together' is a limited time event (available until late March) where players can experience racing against Gran Turismo Sophy; 'GT Sophy' is an AI racing agent developed in collaboration between Sony AI, Sony Interactive Entertainment, and Polyphony Digital. This game mode can be accessed from the banner in the top right of the World Map during the event period. (The event is available only on the PS5™ console version of the game. Unlocked after reaching Collector Level 6.)
Made to be accessible to players of all skill levels, 'Race Together' puts the player up against GT Sophy agents in races of different difficulty levels across four tracks, or they can choose to go 1-on-1 with GT Sophy in an equal conditions race. Experience head-to-head close up racing action like you've never seen before. As the race unfolds, GT Sophy will also express themselves to the player with emoticons.
