Sony Computer Entertainment today announced Gran Turismo 6 will be released this holiday for the PlayStation 3. A demo will be available in July.
Gran Turismo 6 will 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 will be retained in GT6, but 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. The improved course maker function will provide scenery spanning several tens of square kilometers including the magnificent backdrop of Andalucia.
