State of Play Gran Turismo 7 Breakdown- Graphics and Simulation
Lets check out the State of Play for Gran Turismo 7
State of play just happened, entirely focused on the much anticipated Gran Turismo 7 which releases on March 4th. With it being the 25th anniversary of GT, Playstation is getting ready for a large launch. We will be breaking down all the information you need to know about the most realistic and customizable Gran Turismo game to date.
The matrix but with cars
Gran Turismo 7 is getting us closer and closer to digital singularity. Eventually, the simulations of weather systems, friction, and aerodynamics will become so accurate to reality in these games we cannot tell the difference.
The weather system in GT7 takes meteorological data from all over the world to build an incredible simulacrum of what could be going on within that location in the GT7 world. The weather in GT7’s circuits based in japan will the different from the weather in a circuit based in California. The rain will affect the friction from your car on the road, the weather might then change and the rain will evaporate as it would in reality. With lower laying areas having puddles that end up evaporating last.
A fully simulated version of the water cycle is not something we expected from GT7 but it’s exciting to see these behind the scene aspects of a game being improved upon and talked about.
Playing on the PS5
The PS5 Gran Turismo 7 will have some immersive features. With the Duelsense controller, the haptic feedback will simulate the feel of holding the steering wheel. Since you actually feel all of the vibration from the front wheels through the steering wheel this makes sense. GT7 will also take advantage of the 3D audio for the PS5, allowing for a realistic soundscape for players who own the PS5’s headphones.
The graphical quality on the PS5 will also be better than before as Gran Turismo will be using ray tracing. This allows for much more accurate lighting along with real-time reflections making the cars within GT7 look photorealistic.
