Although Gran Turismo Sport has been pushed back to next year, that hasn’t stopped developer Polyphony Digital from showing off what graphical improvements you can expect when the game hits in 2017.
Gran Turismo Sport will ship with 4K support for the PS4 Pro version of the game. It will also make use of the high dynamic range (HDR) feature now available on the PS4 and PS4 Pro.
PS VR owners aren’t left out either with a fully-fledged VR experience promised as well. And for some reasons, Polyphony Digital is touting a wide colour palette that should allow you to “see the depth” of what the game is trying to achieve.
While these additions could be seen as par for the course from casual racing fans, it was a statement to the series’ biggest supporters. Early previews called out the game’s lacklustre visuals. So much so that it felt that it was not inline with main entries in the series such as Gran Turismo 6. Rather, appearing to be similar to the series’ Prologue variants except at full price. The latest trailer looks to assuage such fears.
Considering that the last game to try a threadbare approach to content was Street Fighter V – which resulted it in getting an extremely mixed critical response and not meeting Capcom’s sales targets, it seems that Sony isn’t interested in repeating the Street Fighter V maker’s mistakes.
