Gran Turismo Sport finally receives its much-requested rainy weather effects this Thursday.
Since the game’s original release back in 2017, fans cried out for more varied weather effects, and Polyphony Digital is finally responding. Even if it is a couple of years late, but they are bringing it in at least. Gran Turismo Sport regularly receives content updates, adding new cars, new tracks, and more. For those who aren’t familiar with why Gran Turismo Sport is the biggest entry yet, here is the developer’s official description of the title.
Excluding the CAD data used by automobile makers for their manufacturing, the 3D models created for Gran Turismo Sport are the highest quality, highest precision models in the world. From the curves of the body, edges, spacing between body panels to the headlights and turn signals, every detail of the car has been precisely recreated.
From popular real life race circuits, oval tracks, dirt tracks set in nature and an urban expressway based on public roads, a large variety of tracks have been provided in game. The True HDR workflow has enabled the recreation of light and colors that is true to nature, and it is possible to drive the tracks in a large variety of daylight and sky conditions. Gran Turismo Sport is equipped with the latest vehicle physics simulation that includes knowledge gained from both the real and the virtual. A physics simulation that is ‘easy to drive because it is realistic’ has been achieved.
Gran Turismo Sport is currently available as a PS4 exclusive. You can check out the video below showcasing the update’s new weather.
