A slate of new Gran Turismo 7 details have been revealed by creative director Kazunori Yamauchi.

In a new interview with Eurogamer, Yamauchi gave us a number of new details about the upcoming racing game. Firstly, Gran Turismo 7 will feature cross-play between the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game, the former of which was only just revealed earlier this year after Gran Turismo 7 had originally been unveiled as a PS5-exclusive game. In addition, Gran Turismo 7 will have a climate and simulations of time in real time when you reach both consoles. This means that we can see the climatic cycles, actively change in the individual races, as well as time sending this morning to noon, and for example sunset.

Next, if you liked GT Sport, then there’s good news. Yamauchi reveals that Gran Turismo 7 will upgrade the physical car damage from the former game, and just like this, Yamauchi is interested in bringing back past features from the Gran Turismo series, but doesn’t specify which features in particular.

Just earlier this month, it was revealed that Gran Turismo 7 will finally be launching on March 4, 2022. It’s been a relatively long road for the latest entry in the GT series, especially with a delay out of an original release window earlier this year in 2021, but now Polyphony Digital’s racing sim is finally on track to launch within the next seven months.
