Sony today announced Gran Turismo 6 (GT6), the latest
version of PlayStation's best-selling franchise, will be
released in Holiday, 2013.
The news was revealed today by legendary Gran Turismo
creator Kazunori Yamauchi at an event held to celebrate 15
years of the 70-million-selling series.
GT6 for PlayStation 3 promises to bring new levels of
authenticity to 'the Real Driving Simulator' as well as
introducing new tracks and cars and a revised user
interface. A new compact game engine will improve operation
and increase the flexibility to expand it with downloadable
content. Meanwhile, the game is also set for expanded
connectivity with other devices such as smart phones and
tablets and increased social and community functions.
All of the cars and tracks from Gran Turismo 5, which has
sold over 10 million copies since launching in 2010, will be
retained in GT6. Notable new additions to the line-up of
historic cars, road cars and the latest race cars, brings
the total car list to 1,200 at launch, with new cars set to
be continually added online. Several thousand aerodynamic
parts and custom wheels will be available for almost all
cars, and players can personalize their own custom cars in
game to the greatest ever level possible.
The UK's famous Silverstone Circuit will be just one of
seven new locations in Gran Turismo 6, taking the total to
33, with 71 different layouts available, 19 of them brand
new. There will also be regular additions of new tracks set
to be made available online.
GT6 will also be available for PS4, but not immediately.
