Gran Turismo 6 Has 1200 Cars, 7 New Tracks And Improved Engine

Gran Turismo 6 will include 1200 cars, 7 new tracks and an improved engine, Polyphony Digital has revealed at the Gran Turismo event happening now in Paris.

iAfrica has the press release and the site isn’t too worried about embargoes. Here are some snippets from the release:

GT6 for PlayStation 3 will bring new levels of authenticity to ‘the Real Driving Simulator’ as well as introducing stunning new tracks and cars and a revised user interface.

The press release also added that the game will feature a “new compact game engine” to “improve operation and increase the flexibility to expand it with downloadable content.”

iAfrica also suggested that Gran Turismo 6 will be built with connectivity to smartphones and tablets for social and community interactions.

All of the cars in Gran Turismo 5 will return in Gran Turismo 6, alongside the “notable” addition of historic cars, road cars and the latest race cars, pusing the total amount of cars in Gran Turismo 6 to 1200, with more being added in the future.

New customisation parts have also been added to Gran Turismo 6, with ‘several thousand aerodynamic parts and custom wheels’ to be made available for almost all cars.

Players will be able to personalize their own custom cars in-game too.

This press release also confirmed that there will be seven new locations in Gran Turismo 6, bringing the total to 33 with 71 different layouts. 19 of these layouts will be new.

The release also suggests that new tracks will be made available as DLC, while improvements have been made to the course maker.

GT Academy series will be returning and will feature new partnerships with tire manufacturer Yokohama Rubber and suspension company KW Automotive.

    i’m very intrigued to see what the connectivity with smartphones and tablets will be. a mobile gran turismo? or just a different way to tweak the settings and customize the cars?

    i used to love gt but gt5 was a majer letdown…….online was broken and when they fixed it. The online as just crap. as for the offline game it was pretty much the same as GT3 and GT4 but slighty prettier and only slightly at that……….people moan about call of duty recycling year after year but at least they have the sense to mix up the mechanics and change the storyline.

    Yeah, I’m looking forward to that, too.

    There’s a demo coming in July, bro. Probably after giving it a run your mind will be changed?
