Polyphony Digital has showcased the improved tuning mode in the upcoming Gran Turismo 7 game in a new video.
Tuning cars can be a somewhat controversial aspect of racing games. On one side of the argument, improving the speed and handling of a car using new parts is a fun way to diversify how a car can be used, and on the other side, it breaks from realism and allows players to do things with certain cars that couldn't be achieved in real life.
But Sony and Polyphony Digital have decided to lean more toward the former position and allow players more tuning options than any previous Gran Turismo title. A new video shared on the GT YouTube channel shows creator Kazunori Yamauchi sharing information on the importance of tuning cars and how players can expect GT7 to embrace this mentality.
Calling back to titles prior to Gran Turismo Sport, the tuning in GT7 will allow for various grades of of parts like ECU, intake, exhaust, brakes, engine, weight reduction, suspension, tires and more to be installed.
Gran Turismo 7 has a scheduled release date of March 4th, 2022. Be sure to check back to RD often as more pre-release details are shared from Sony and PD.
