Sony has announced the appearance of the new chapter of legendary Gran Turismo series and its collaboration with automakers. The famous game blurs the line between the real and virtual racing for the 15th anniversary of the game.
Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. has announced that the sixth generation of Gran Turismo auto-simulator will be released by the end of 2013. The news was revealed by the legendary Gran Turismo creator, Kazunori Yamauchi on the 15th anniversary of the series. The sales of this game reached the number of 70 million copies, so there was lots of celebrating to do.
The new GT6 for PlayStation 3 will not only be closer to reality, but will have some new cars added to it as well. The general interface of the game will also be improved. Each user will be able to change the game as he wishes with downloadable content. And on top of that the game will expand the opportunities for mobile devices interaction to make the communication between players easier.
GT6 will still have all of the old cars and tracks from the 2010 game but apart from that will be filled with a great choice of retro cars, serial cars and racing cars. By the time the game comes out the number of available vehicles will reach 1200 and will be increased later. The Gran Turismo 6 will have seven new race tracks, including the legendary Silverstone. This means the total number of tracks will be 33, and the different variations of tracks will increase to 71. Some additional tracks will be regularly published online where the players will be able to download them.
The time remaining before the official premiere of the game will be used to perform different projects with auto manufacturers. GT Academy project, for example, is performed in collaboration with Nissan Company. Other Companies that participated in GT’s 6 creation and improvement include Yokohama Rubber and KW Automotive that helped make the cars in the game even more realistic. And the greatest part of the game is, according to Kazunori Yamauchi, that it will constantly improve.
