Kazunori Yamauchi, the president off Polyphony Digital, shared a few words in the blogpost about the upcoming free VR update for owners of Gran Turismo 7 and teases a bit as to what fans can expect.
“We’re thrilled that Gran Turismo 7 will be a PS VR2 launch title! Through a free upgrade, for those who have already purchased Gran Turismo 7, players will experience all cars and tracks in VR like never before,” Yamauchi said. “GT7 in VR takes full advantage of PS VR2’s next gen features. With eye tracking and foveated rendering, players will experience stunning visual fidelity while racing in any of the 450+ cars. While 2-player splitscreen races are not supported in VR, all other races, including online races, will be available. From the Nürburgring to Tsukuba, tracks can be experienced exactly as they are in real life.”
Sony noted that this final launch software lineup is “subject to change without notice.” Furthermore, IGN is confirming with certain developers whose games are not on this list but stated intention to launch alongside PS VR2 like Among Us 2, and will update this as we hear back.
