Polyphony Digital is set to release a course creator app for Gran Turismo 6, with it available on a number of mobile and tablet devices. The editor will not be coming to the actual game on PS3 though, with courses to be transferred via PlayStation Network accounts. The way it works is that you create a track in the app and then save it to your PSN ID, which will then allow you to download the track in Gran Turismo 6. These tracks can then be driven upon in Arcade mode, Open Lobby events, and shareable in Community Features.
The features of the app include:
- Four different locations will be available, including the Eiger, the Andalusia region in Spain , and the introduction of a new “Death Valley” location.
- Players will have full control of the shape and layout of the course, including the ability to set road width and the banking of corners.
- Roadside items such as plants, trees, buildings, signs, tents, and grandstands can be placed around the circuit.
- Curbing can be placed in custom areas along the edge of the track (though this won’t be in all locations).
Screens of the app were also acquired by GTPlanet.
