If you do not buy one the snazzy editions then you will be able to upgrade from the PS4 to PS5 version for a $10.

Hidden away in the small print on the PlayStation Blog was the news that Gran Turismo 7 won’t let you save without an internet connection. In an interview with Eurogamer the series creator Kaz Yamauchi explained that the reason “is just to prevent cheating overall from people trying to modify the save data, so that’s the reason for the online connection”.

He later clarified, “The online connection is required for the campaign mode. The only part of the game that doesn’t require an online connection is the arcade mode, because that has no effect on the save data, so that’s possible.”

This has the potential to be a bit of an annoyance for some players, even if internet connectivity feels like it’s a given in the modern gaming world. Where GT Sport was given a pass on the matter due to its clear focus on online multiplayer racing at launch (it did gradually get more offline race events), Gran Turismo 7 is a step back toward the more classical form of the series with tons of single player racing, car purchasing and upgrades, and I’m sure some would have hoped that would mean an escape from always online play.

Gran Turismo 7 will be coming out for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on 22nd March 2022.
