New Gran Turismo 5 Trailer: Night Racing

Stephanie Yoshimoto's Avatar Posted by Senior Product Marketing Manager

Hi PlayStation.Blog readers,

As you may have seen, a brand new trailer for Gran Turismo 5 was debuted on the God of War III Blu-ray disc. So for those of you who saw unofficial copies of it, I want to share that trailer in HD, which can also be found on the official Gran Turismo website along with all of the latest and greatest Gran Turismo news. Fans who purchase God of War III will also be able to view the trailer as a part of the Blu-ray when it is available on store shelves beginning this Tuesday, March 16.

I’m sure you noticed the teaser footage for night racing in this trailer. This feature was first revealed in the February issue of PlayStation The Official Magazine, as part of their 10-page cover story on GT5, but this trailer is the first opportunity fans have to see it in action. Night racing is just one of many new GT5 features.

The game will not only include improved features, but also a host of exciting new ones that will be revealed in the coming months. To whet your appetite even further, here are a few new GT5 screenshots that just came in!

As you may have heard, our Senior VP of Marketing and PSN, Peter Dille, announced at the GDC press conference that Gran Turismo 5 will be hitting store shelves this year. There’s lots in store for GT5 this year, so stay tuned here on the PS blog and the official GT website for the latest news and info on the game.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Special stage is back!! More night racing please. Was that the Rome circuit in this vid, my fav one and only rome circuit? I wasn’t sure, cause I don’t remember that big turn. If Rome night also came back, that would be tight too. Tokyo would be tight at night. Ooh, how bout wangan racing.

we all know the game looks good and the improved realism from the 350z demo but what about multiplayer for this game. i hope there is a lobby system because being paired with random people is not fun.

Big Mike,

Sony said way back in September last year that online would have private lobbies with voice and text chat. We’ll just have to see how deep the online features get…

Just noticed this but why do you say “night racing” is a “new feature”? Night racing is far from new in Gran Turismo unless you mean all tracks (or almost all) can be raced at night?

You guys are killing me with this game, really.

Really. :)

It sure has taking a long time for this to come out. I’ve been waiting ever since the PS3 lunch. It looks great… Two of my all time favorites are coming out this year….WOW

will it feature 24 hour day/night option? Racing the 24 hour race at the nurburgring in GT4 was not realistic enough. It would be a whole lot better to race the nordschlife in the dark against people online.

Do you know anything about the release date of GT5? Ive heard November 2010 and ive heard earlier too. Thanks!

Hi Stephanie and K.Y

One thing you should do with GT5 is making the clutch unavailable, because today people will do anything to win, and that’s really unfair, actually you should clean up the GT5p Ranking in the top, because it’s full if Cheaters..

and also the Online races are unfair, because it will be used, no matter what people tell you, WAKE UP!! Honesty is a city in Russia

And if you can’t make this happen for GT5, then it’s nothing worth.. no matter how great it looks :(..

I’m full of today’s unfair like drivers..

yes i’m angry and mad because of this..

the song is “Borrowed Time” by TC feat Sub Focus.
does no one here have an iPhone w/Shazam in their apps? i’m disappointed in you nerds. lol.


karphan | March 12th, 2010 at 3:59 pm
Someone posted the name of the song already but for some reason people are too lazy to look at everything here. This is the link to that song in the trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzJrdHBGN6c&feature=related
and I have info on a release date for Grand Turismo 6 it’s Feb 30th 2076.

Ok so it was posted once, but the fact is it’s been posted.

I agree with you about being happy that NASCAR is going to be a part of GT5. After seeing what EA NON-Sports had reduced the NASCAR videogame franchise to (the same crap year after year after year with botchy graphics, lacklustre gameplay both on and off-line) it’ll be a breath of fresh air now that PD has their hands on it. Based on what I’ve seen so far, hopefully PD will pick up the license full time.

Just imagine what a full-blown NASCAR game done in the style of GT (with full damage, of course) would be like. Mouth-watering graphics, pinpoint-accurate handling and solid online gameplay! Smething like this is exactly what the NASCAR franchise needs.

I cant help to wonder if all these “teaser vids” werent being worked on maybe we would have this game in outr hands.

I understand and appreciate everything they are doing to make a great game but since the PS3 was released not one decent racing game has come out. NOT ONE!!!!!! SOME OF US ARE STARTING TO LOOK TO THE COMPETITION! With Forza being available and again the PS3 user is left waiting……..AND WAITING as usual

Nice – hoping for variable weather like rain/wet racing as well

danielr4388 said:

Ok, I’ll ask a question that i haven’t seen yet… For those of us who bought Gran Turismo Prologue will we have to go out and buy the entire game or will sony reward fan loyalty (Ahem!)

Looks amazing. Definite system seller. Can’t wait to get my hands on the final product. My only fear is that PD are similar AI for the computer controlled racecars… please please please let it be good.

This game looks better and better. I really hope career mode is implemented well with unlockables and stuff, and especially it would be nice to have some sort of customizing beyond car colour. Race cars rarely ever are a solid colour. GT5 should take a page out of Racedriver: GRID’s book and have sponsors with custom decal placement and custom livery.

Honestly, havent we been waiting for this game since like ’07?

I really do wonder if this game is actually going to come out or if it was over-designed and the hardware cant support it so they keep delaying it.

I’ve really stopped paying attention to the updates personally.

Once again, here is the evidence the 2010 is the Official year of the PS3.

Hi people at Polyphony Digital … could you PLEASE spend less time releasing teaser trailers and ACTUALLY put this game on shelves now. It’s very annoying that you guys can endlessly supply trailers showing this new feature and that new feature but cannot even put your thumbs down on a definitive release date.

If it’s some marketing plan to release the GT5 further away from GOW 3 or whatever that useless game is called because you think you will sell more copies of GT5 during Christmas etc etc, it’s very disappointing because fans would buy both regardless. We have patiently waited for nearly a half decade, the least you could do is give us the game now.

If not the initial overhead cost of having to buy an XBOX360 system, I would have defected to Forza a long time ago. Yes it doesn’t have 60 billion cars but seriously, which person with a social life outside of a computer or television screen is going to spend that much time accumulating virtual ‘money’ to unlock and drive them?

Unless that’s the demographic you’re really making the game for. If it is then by all means continue developing it and don’t forget to say hi to the developers of Duke Nukem Forever while you’re at it.
