Game News Gran Turismo 7: the series shows its evolution with a striking comparison
In 1997, a brand new saga appeared, the Gran Turismo license, which would turn motor racing games upside down with its exemplary realism and breathtaking graphics. Today, it can make you smile, especially when you compare this first Gran Turismo to Gran Turismo 7.
1997 vs. 2022
Firmly awaited by all racing game enthusiasts, Gran Turismo 7 will bring with it many new features, starting with the arrival of revolutionary AI or even realistic dynamic weather, but also its share of content. Indeed, the title exclusive to Sony platforms will offer no less than 90 routes and 400 vehicles at launch.
But in the end, what we expect above all from him is that he flatters our retinas, especially since with Gran Turismo 7, the franchise will finally take its first steps on next-gen. We then hope that the graphic gap will be there… and according to the last tweet made by the game developers, it seems that things are off to a good start. As you can see below, Polyphony Digital, the team behind Gran Turismo 7, offers us today a little funny comparison between the first Gran Turismo and Gran Turismo 7 therefore.
The vehicles of the first Gran Turismo consist of 300 polygons, while those of Gran Turismo 7 have 500,000 polygons.
As you can see, the evolution is great (and fortunately) between the game of 1997 and that of 2022. Indeed, with this seventh episode, the Castrol Tom’s Supra is more beautiful than ever and now displays a total of 500 000 polygons against just 300 in 1997. Now, we can’t wait to see what this will bring to the controller.
As a reminder, Gran Turismo 7 is expected on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 from March 4th.
Back to basics
To tell the truth, this is not the first time that Gran Turismo 7 compares itself with its elders. Kazunori Yamauchi, the boss of the Polyphony Digital studio and head of the design of Gran Turismo 7, has never even hidden to carry out a real return to basics: the introduction of the game itself takes shot for shot that of the first episodes of the saga!
Similarly, the title marks the return of a very essential component: a gigantic single player mode, license tests and car customization in support, something neglected during the PlayStation 4 generation with a Gran Turismo Sport based on multiplayer. No doubt, the Japanese developers hope there to reconnect with the original success: we will have to wait until March 4 to see what this new production has in store, both on PS5 and on PS4. A damn busy period for the Tenth Art, she who received in the space of a few weeks Horizon Forbidden West and a certain Elden Ring…
