Earlier today, Nofi kindly brought to our attention some pretty incredible footage of the upcoming Gran Turismo 5. Well, now, developers Polyphony Digital have released upon us an official trailer which showcases some new features for the game.
Marvel as day turns into night, but more importantly, how the sun turns into a cloudy, rainy day. The visual water effects shown from inside the cabin are simply incredible. Never before have you seen rain like this.
Now I know, rain in a game is nothing new, nor normally something to get excited about it. But, if the guys at Polyphony put half the effort in to the rest of the game as they have done with the water, then GT5 is shaping up to be a winner.
The trailer also has some other very nice reveals too. Like snow. Yes, it even snows in GT5. Really, what else can it do? Well, how about the first official sighting of the full (and amazing) Le Mans circuit. Or some new vehicles, like the lastest Subaru Impreza STI saloon, a classic Jaguar, Peugeot’s all-conquring 908 racer, the legendary VW Campervan (which was shown in the earlier clips) and the Pagani Zonda R. Phew!
Lastly, there appears to be a 2 new tracks which have not been seen in the world of Gran Turismo. One is a rally track that showcases the snow, while the second appears to be a narrow street circuit, which is used to show off the night time driving.
Anyway, enough talking, watch the trailer below.
