Gran Turismo has always had the big goal of being a serious simulator, and apparently, with the new title in the saga (GT 7), we’re going to have some improvements in the game engine, capable of adding a new layer of complexity to the races.
After all, in addition to the weather changing in real time… This will also impact the asphalt temperature, and even the air temperature!
Gran Turismo 7: Weather will affect air and asphalt temperatures as well as track humidity!
Therefore, as the saga of games Gran Turismo has always been based on car racing simulation. The new project will try to take advantage of the PlayStation 5’s capabilities to use real-time weather data, to try and bring some more ‘real’ hardships to the track.

After all, according to one of the most responsible for the franchise (Kazunori Yamauchi), the air temperature, humidity, and even the asphalt temperature, will be directly affected by temperature changes.
By the way, besides that, as the focus on immersion and “reality” is really big in this new version of the game. Gran Turismo 7 will also simulate the points on each track, where rain will cause more difficulties for drivers. In other words, effects such as aquaplaning or ‘spray’ on top of other cars.
However, in case you didn’t know, Gran Turismo 7 will arrive on both PS4 and PS5 sometime in 2022.

What is clear, it got many manufacturers to move, in order to be able to capture a slice of the pie of this emerging market.
That’s exactly why in recent months we’ve seen the release of several super-fast drives, such as the Corsair MP600 XT, the WD SN850, and of course, a new SSD made by Sony itself, or rather by its subsidiary Nextorage .
