Game News Gran Turismo 7 is full of PS5 gameplay at the heart of the legendary Daytona circuit
After a lackluster Gran Turismo Sport episode, the Polyphony Digital franchise is about to return to center stage. In a few weeks, Sony will draw a new exclusive for its latest machine, the PS5. To kill two birds with one stone, the Japanese firm is highlighting the performance of the machine and the emblematic Daytona circuit, which was recently confirmed.
The year 2022 should mark a boost for the catalog of the playstation5. A month before the release of Gran Turismo 7, the manufacturer will launch the second part of the adventures of Aloy in Horizon: Forbidden West. But let’s get back to the asphalt and the cars of the Polyphony Digital franchise, which is about to make a resounding return, almost four and a half years after the only game stamped Gran Turismo on PS4. Since its revelation during the PlayStation Showcase last September, the game has been putting the gum on its communication with great shots of images and trailers in 4K.
True to its reputation, Polyphony Digital is giving it a layer today with a new gameplay extract that gives pride of place to the mythical Daytona International Speedway circuit. This very morning, we mentioned in our columns the return of the iconic track, as well as some information that suggests a real return to basics with this seventh numbered opus.
The PS5 foot to the floor on the emblematic circuit!
The Polyphony Digital developers are smart because, thanks to the multitude of trailers and gameplay sequences released, they take the opportunity to make us see what the PS5 has under the hood. Nothing like it to give us a real taste of what the future of the Gran Turismo license has in store for us, and we have to believe that this future will be made in the company of the glories of the past.
Today, it’s not just the PS5 which is in the spotlight since it must share the spotlight with the Daytona circuit. To experience this race, Polyphony immerses us in the middle of the cockpit to offer us nearly four minutes of speed and adrenaline. If you must not be left behind by your competitors, it is difficult not to take the time to admire the sublime play of light and the rendering of the climatic conditions.
So it’s pushed over 280 km/h that we discover, or rediscover, the layout of the Daytona International Speedway. Finally, the camera makes us take a little height to admire the ballet of vehicles which follow one another on the asphalt, as well as the care given to the reproduction of the many racing cars within the game.
Waiting for the release of Gran Turismo, lulled by the roar of the engines, is no longer very long since the game will be in the hands of PS5 and PS4 players from March 4. With that, we’ll let you wait with the sublime extract available at the top of the article!
