In a new State of Play, PlayStation officially revealed that Gran Turismo 7 will have 300 purchasable cars at its shopping mall dealership.
In a new State of Play, PlayStation has officially revealed Gran Turismo 7‘s world map, which includes a brand-new in-game shopping mall that allows players to purchase more than 300 different post-2001 cars. The Gran Turismo series has released quality experiences for each console generation and is generally considered to be a major selling point for PlayStation consoles due to its renowned reputation as one of the best racing video game franchises. Set to be the eighth mainline installment in the long-running franchise, Gran Turismo 7 will launch in early March on both PS4 and PS5 and set in motion a new visually stunning expansive ride through many new features and next-generation console-specific extras for both long-time fans and newcomers.
Releasing during the series’ 25th anniversary, Gran Turismo 7 aims to have a strong emphasis on realism and immersion. The racing simulator includes limited ray tracing technology to produce incredibly realistic lighting effects and reflections and features a dynamic weather system affected by air, temperature, humidity, and road surface that will change how players will race. Like the previous installment in the series GT Sport, Gran Turismo 7 will require an online connection to play in both offline and online modes. This is ostensibly used to dissuade cheaters, but many players have expressed frustration with the feature, believing it will lead to connectivity issues and ruin the whole experience.
In an expansive new in-depth look during the State of Play, PlayStation has revealed Gran Turismo 7‘s brand-new car dealership. Titled “Brand Central,” the international dealership is a shopping mall where players will be able to purchase roughly 300 car models manufactured after the year 2001, with over 50 brands from North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. In addition to purchasing vehicles, players will be able to view each automotive manufacturer’s museum, which will help them learn the history and origin of each brand with unique images and texts.
While the Brand Central is confirmed to have around 300 vehicles for players to purchase, 100 more vehicles are expected to make an appearance. In a recent trailer, Kazunori Yamauchi, the game director and CEO of Polyphony Digital revealed that Gran Turismo 7 would include over 400 cars for players to collect. With the addition of 300 purchasable cars, players will be able to unlock 100 more through progression when the game launches.
Gran Turismo 7 appears to have taken the vehicle roster award, as the title has been confirmed to have almost 3 times more vehicles than the previous installment on the launch date. Gran Turismo 7‘s release is right around the corner, so PlayStation players can begin prepping their systems on February 25, as the long-anticipated racing sim is set to officially release on March 4.
Gran Turismo 7 officially launches on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on March 4, 2022.
