Just when we think gaming is at its very best, it just keeps getting better. It was only a few months ago we saw Ride 4’s breathtaking hyper-realistic graphics, and now another racing game is promising even more innovation and immersion.
Gran Turismo 7 (or GT7) is set to release on PlayStation 4 and 5 next March, and already there is loads of hype surrounding it and its incredibly immersive gaming experience. The creator of the series has revealed a handful of the racing game’s innovative features in an exclusive video, and it is sparking plenty of excitement amongst the gaming community.

In a brand new behind-the-scenes video on YouTube, the creator of GT7, Kazunori Yamauchi, has said that “we’ve [GT7 team] have finally achieved a level of realism that’s kind of tangible”. Yamauchi goes on to describe how the game’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers will be used to recreate the feel of the breaks in the race cars. The game will also use ray tracing (an advanced light render graphic) to make the cars look even better, and we are seriously impressed by how hyper-realistic these cars look.
We can’t quite fathom how well-designed these graphics are, and we think that Gran Turismo 7 might give Ride 4 a run for its money in terms of realism. It seems like users on Twitter are feeling just as impressed by the game as we are. One user tweeted, “Forza wishes it was this immersive,” and another responded, “Might be the first racing game I buy in over a decade”.
