PS5 Players Can Now Play Gran Turismo 7 In VR
With PS VR 2, you'll be able to race in a whole new way.
Polyphony Digital has announced that new content will be coming to Gran Turismo 7 as a part of the 1.29 update. The latest update introduces VR mode for PlayStation 5 players, new modes, new drivable cars, and more.
Thanks to a PlayStation Blog, we know that PlayStation 5 players who own a PS VR2 can access a new area called the VR Showroom from their garage or other in-game car dealerships. With the PS VR 2, players can see the HDR tone mapping and use a new eye-tracking feature that renders areas of the screen that they're looking at. In addition to that, PS VR 2 will also support dynamic 3D audio for a more immersive experience.
The update will also introduce Sophy Race Together limited-time mode that'll only be available for PlayStation 5 users. This mode will be available from February 21 to the end of March, and in it, players will race against the GT Sophy in a series of four circuits. Players can also race against the GT Sophy in a 1VS1 mode, where they'll be driving against the AI in another GT Sophy with the same stats.
In addition to the new mode, the Grand Valley returns to the series with an updated look. Highway 1 will be a course with high-speed sections with tight corners. There'll also be a 2000M South layout that'll have even harsher environments.
Five new cars will be introduced alongside the update. Players will be able to drive the following cars:
- Honda RA272 ’65
- Italdesign Exeneo Vision Gran Turismo Street and Off-Road Mode
- Citroën DS 21 Pallas ’70
- Porsche 911 Carrera RS (901) ’73
Lastly, Drift Stage and Move The Camera Up And Down have been added to the feature section. Support for drift photos has also been introduced, and a tutorial to guide you on drift photos.
