Gran Turismo 5’s gamescom Announcements

Chris Hinojosa-Miranda's Avatar Posted by Producer

Guten Tag Gran Turismo fans! We’re coming to you semi-live and sort-of on-location from ze lovely German city of Cologne, site of this year’s gamescom, with a quick update on the latest news on Gran Turismo 5 and some of the features we’ll have ready for you come November 2nd. Below are some brief notes on these features, but for a more detailed break down, brand new screenshots and some cool historical bits, visit the official Gran Turismo website.


Single Player Career Modes: A-Spec and B-Spec
In A-Spec, you are the driver and it will be your driving skills that decide where you stand on the grid.

B-Spec, you are the Team Director, and your job is to study the competition and properly play to your driver’s strengths to come out on top. Winning will be a team effort, with every race a chance to improve your driver’s technique and help him develop into a top-tier driver. This is a brand new style of racing.


Garage: A Virtual Rolodex for Your Rides
Gran Turismo 5 gives you the chance to own over 1000 hyper-detailed cars, and the Garage section will be their home, complete with numerous easy-to-use categorizing tools that would make Melvil Dewey rethink his system.


Your personal collection will come from a couple of different areas, two of the main ones being Dealers (for new cars) or Used Car Dealers. But regardless of where you purchased, every car will be more than welcome to enter the Tuning Shop for body and suspension kits, exhaust systems and more performance parts than you can shake a stick at.

My Lounge: Virtual Track Days, Anytime, Anywhere.
Gran Turismo 5’s new revamped online system takes the essence of spending a day at the track and recreates the same level of excitement and competition in your game room (minus the smell of burnt rubber and bald tires).


Course Maker: Unleash your Inner-Architect
Be inspired by Gran Turismo’s 70 track variations to generate a super-hybrid course or come up with a dream course the likes that no one has ever seen before …

Kart Racing: A Pro-Driver’s Training Wheels
A large majority of real-life professional drivers had their start on karts, as they are a perfect way for first time drivers to learn racing theory and seasoned pros to hone their skills … and the same goes for Gran Turismo drivers. Gran Turismo’s Kart racing mode gives you a chance to experience this kind of training (virtually of course ) … click here for a preview of what is in store for you.

The items above are brief blips on a much more robust breakdown (complete with screenshots) available on the official Gran Turismo website.

See you online! Tschüs!

You know back in the day when I was trying to decide if I wanted an xbox or a ps2, I went to my cousins house. He had a ps2 and gt3. Having played gt and gt2 a little in the past I knew it was a good fancies. Playing gt3 that day made my decision. Love how real these guys make the game feel and seeing all this gt5 news puts a vary big smile on my face. Even my dad (61) a big nascar fan is taking about getting a ps3 with a racing weel just for this game.

And Also please add Pro Drifting racing to GT5. Thats the only thing its missing and it will be the bomb.
Not saying it isnt going to be the bomb. But Drifting would be great add

Kart racing? That’s kind of neat, but for the US, dirt track racing would have been better (midgets, sprint cars, etc).

Forza Who ? GT5 looks fantastic beautiful and all the content is insane. Guess i must play a whole life to discover everything.

Any word on how deep the car customization will be? Is it like previous GTs where we purchased upgrades but weren’t visibly apparent or will we be able to alter the looks of the exterior of the cars (or even repaint them isntead of having to buy the same car again but with a differnt color)?

Hi sorry if this has already been asked and answered but is there an official list of what cars will be available in the game? and will there be car packs of newer models available in the future?
