What to Expect
Although Gran Turismo Sport is definitely an incredible racing game, it wasn't the definitive Gran Turismo experience that appeared in GT6.
Gran Turismo 7 is set to be a return to that classic GT experience and even throwback to the golden age of Gran Turismo 1-4.
With the return of a career/campaign mode signalling more focus on single-player experience and the tuning shop making a glorious comeback we couldn't be more excited about GT7.
In an interview with the Guardian, Simon Rutter of PlayStation Europe noted that the game will “benefit from almost every single technological enhancement”.
“Sitting in the cockpit, the 3D audio allows you to hear the thunderous roar of a Ferrari behind you or in front of you, and you can recognise the difference between that and the engine noise of a Maserati.
“Driving the car using the DualSense controller, you’ll have a different feeling in your hands from the smooth undulating tarmac of a racetrack, compared to the gritty sensation on a gravel track,” Rutter claimed. “Pressing a soft accelerator will feel very different than pressing on a stiff brake pedal or gear paddle.”
CEO of Polyphony Digital, Kazunori Yamuchi, revealed the latest title would include a return of a campaign mode.
This is an exciting addition as players have been asking for a return of the career mode.

Tuning is also making a return in Gran Turismo 7, this is another feature that was removed and is making a return.
Tuning was removed in GT Sport and players have been asking for it back ever since.
It's good to see it's making a return.
