A new downloadable update released this week sees Gran Turismo 7 players receive three new cars to race: the Volkswagen ID.R and Porsche Vision Gran Turismo Spyder concepts, and our favourite news, the S14 Nissan Silvia.

The popular PlayStation-based racing simulator went on sale earlier this year, and this ‘version 1.23’ update arrives – alongside bug fixes and Logitech G Pro Racing Wheel Support – as the latest enhancement available in the game.

The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo Spyder follows the reveal of a 950kW hardtop version last year, but of course, neither car is planned for a real-world production debut.

The new Legend cars are joined by a new Menu Book and two Extra Menu Books in the café component, with challenges focused around ‘The Silvia Sisters’, Corvettes, and mid-engined Porsche models.

The update has left some gamers unsatisfied, however, arguing that the numbers of cars on offer isn’t an issue – but rather, a lack of suitable events and a competitive enough AI (artificial intelligence) to deliver truly challenging and entertaining racing.

December 2021: New GT7 details

First announced back in June 2020 but with no sign of it since, Gran Turismo 7 has finally resurfaced.

The game was featured in Sony’s PlayStation Showcase 2021 livestream event today with a new trailer and the announcement of a global release on March 4, 2022 on both PlayStation 4 and 5 consoles.

The latest instalment in the venerable driving franchise is once again being directed by series creator Kazunori Yamauchi and built by his team at Polyphony Digital.

The game was originally scheduled to launch in 2021, but suffered production delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Its 2022 release will mark an almost nine-year gap between numbered instalments in the series, with Gran Turismo 6 having been released on the PlayStation 3 back in December 2013.

The most recent release in the series was the smaller-scale, online focused Gran Turismo Sport which launched on the PlayStation 4 at the tail-end of 2017.

Details of game modes and features can be found in a new post by Yamauchi over on the PlayStation Blog.

Players who purchase the PlayStation 4 version of the game either physically or digitally have been promised that they’ll be able to upgrade to a digital copy of the PlayStation 5 edition for a US$10 fee in a previous Blog post.

The Gran Turismo series has been famous since its beginnings for its protracted gestation cycle. The first game spent a full five years in development before releasing to critical acclaim and enormous sales on the original PlayStation in 1997. The franchise to date has shipped over 80 million units across thirteen titles.
