Get ready to hit the track.
Gran Turismo Sport offered a tantalizing taste of the GT experience using the original PlayStation VR, but Gran Turismo 7 takes it to the next level with the introduction of PS VR2. With no compromises on the cars, tracks, races, and license tests, Gran Turismo 7 looks amazing and offers an immersive experience like never before. Here are four reasons why you should be excited about buckling up for GT7 in PlayStation VR2.
1. Incredible Visuals: Gran Turismo 7 looks stunning in its VR conversion, with improved image quality and clarity compared to GT Sport. The VR Showroom allows you to look around any of the 450+ cars in the game, with the plastics, wood paneling, leather, vinyl, and plastics all viewable up close.
2. Head Tracking: Being able to freely look around during a race with your view untethered from the front of your car provides tangible performance benefits. You can plan your next move while driving into a sharp corner by looking beyond the immediate turn to the rest of the track.
3. Sense of Scale and Speed: The increased tangibility of a race car’s purpose-built, rough-and-ready interior, along with the real limitations on visibility, dramatically heightens the sense of speed and intensity of a race. The mountain range at Dragon Tail feels genuinely huge and imposing, and the desert at Willow Springs feels more desert-like, with the vast emptiness perceptibly vast and empty.
4. No Camera Needed: The new PS VR2 hardware no longer requires a camera to track your position in 3D space, meaning you no longer have to be overly concerned with your position relative to the TV. This makes it far more likely to use the headset during daily play sessions.
The free Gran Turismo 7 PS VR2 update hits February 22. Get ready to hit the track and experience the ultimate in virtual motorsport!
