Gran Turismo 7 gameplay shows a flying lap of Deep Forest Raceway

Gran Turismo GT7 Header

Gran Turismo 7 has some new gameplay footage released by Sony, and the video shows an uninterrupted flying lap of the Deep Forest Raceway. The camera angle is from a cockpit view giving players a very good representation of what it is like to drive a car. You can see the camera bounce and react pretty realistically to bumps as the lap goes on. In addition there is a lot of focus on the sound as you hear tyres against the tarmac and the roar of engines of the driver’s car, and the racers around them. Plus the visuals for Gran Turismo 7 look stunning.

Following in the racing line of Gran Turismo Sport, Polyphony Digital’s upcoming Gran Turismo 7 will also require an internet connection in order to save your profile. That’s regardless of whether you’re playing online competitive races, “offline” in the game’s campaign, and even using the livery editor, Scapes photo mode, GT Cafe or GT Auto. The only thing you can do without an internet connection is play the Arcade mode.

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.”

Gran Turismo 7 is coming out for PS5 and PS4 on 4th March 2022, a surprise cross-generational release considering its original announcement – if you want to upgrade from PS4 to PS5, you’ll be able to pay the $10 difference to do so.

From the heady days of the Mega Drive up until the modern day gaming has been my main hobby. I'll give almost any game a go.

  1. It looks pretty good but I was surprised to see (hear) that the engine over rev when you change up a gear is still there from GT Sport, it’s rather annoying! I cannot remember hearing it in any other racing series.
