FORMAT PS5, PS4 / ETA 4 MAR / PUB PLAYSTATION STUDIOS DEV POLYPHONY DIGITAL / PLAYERS MULTI
While it’s been a long time coming – number six was released almost eight years ago – the seventh main entry in the GT series is now so close, we can smell the burning rubber. March may seem like an agonisingly long way away right now, but all signs point to it being worth the wait.
This is, at its heart, the Gran Turismo you may already know and love and, best of all, players on both PS5 and PS4 get to come along for the ride. With a continued emphasis on realism, GT7 is pitching itself as the best racing sim yet. Hundreds of real cars, all handling differently with realistic physics, in realistic weather conditions, and all rendered in painstaking detail – yet that is just scratching the surface. There will be, as teased in the PlayStation Showcase trailer, a wide variety of locations to show your skills off in. Traditional race tracks, city streets, mountains, deserts, snow… you need to be ready for anything. You’re racing all across the world and, as this is a sim, there are plenty of real-world circuits for you to test yourself on. Like the idea of popping over to Australia to hurl yourself around the Mount Panorama Circuit? Polyphony Digital has you covered. Fancy tackling the Fuji International Speedway at the foot of (shocker) Mount Fuji? This is the game for you. All rendered in a multitude of conditions, using “meteorological observation data” to simulate how the weather and time of day can affect a track.

NEW RESEARCH: BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTION (BFR) TRAINING and Betaine for Enhanced Muscle Growth
Synergy is a phenomenon that occurs when combining one stimulus with another causes an effect greater than either stimuli alone. In other words, one plus one is somehow greater than two.
