Sony has finally revealed that it will start shipping Gran Turismo 6 this holiday season, and since PS4 is also being launched soon, I am confident that the new game will be released on the PS4 platform. Not doing so may upset racing game fans and even compel some potential buyers not to get the next-gen console from Sony; however, only a PS3 version is guaranteed for now.
Speaking of the game itself, it will include cars and tracks from its previous version – Gran Turismo 5, which sold more than 10 million copies since its release in 2010, along with new additions to the great line-up of latest racing cars, road cars and historic cars in the series. This brings us to a total of 1,200 cars at launch, with more cars to be continuously added through DLCs. Thousands of aerodynamic parts and the ability to add custom wheels to almost all cars will be featured in the title. Players can even make their own custom car, and personalize it to a level which no game has provided yet.
This will not be just another simple update to the series, this time; Sony is taking it up a notch with lots of new cars and a revamped user interface. The upcoming game will also introduce a new game engine with a better performance and the ability to extend the game’s capability via downloadable content. It is also said to provide more connections with other devices such as tablets and mobiles. GT6 will also offer more community and social functions than its previous version.
The title also introduces 7 new sites, bringing them up to a total of 33 locations. With 19 new track layouts, the game now has 71 layouts. New tracks will also continue to be added through DLCs. The revamped course maker will make the game even better.
Gran Turismo 6 also features a new aerodynamics model, along with improved suspension and kinematics models. Even GT academy will be bigger than ever because of a new deal with Nissan.
“Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale ’11”, “Alpine A110 1600S ’68”, “Audi Sport quattro S1 Rally Car ’86”, “Ferrari Dino 246 GT ’71”, “KTM X-BOW R ’12”, “Light Car Company Rocket ’07”, “Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 ’11”, “Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 N24 Schulze Motorsport” and “Tesla Motors Model S Signature Performance ’12” are the cars that were featured in the GT6 demo by Sony.
With all the new features, the game surely seems to be amazing which will definitely provide racing game fans something to cherish.
