Sony confirms "Create-Your-Own-Track" feature on Gran Turismo 5
Now that we already know when Gran Turismo 5 is going to be released, we’re now being bombarded with news about possible new features for the game. One of which apparently, is a new kink in the racing game franchise that allows us to design our very own race track.
Sure, it’s been in the rumor oven for quite some time now, but according to Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida in an interview with the UK Playstation blog, the design-your-own-track feature will be available on GT5. That’s not all, too. In addition to this "track creating and sharing", Yoshida also confirms some more new wrinkles to the game, including go-karts and an all-new weather system.
"Gran Turismo 5 will offer gamers an experience more rich, more in-depth and more exciting than they might expect – even from a series as closely identified with innovation and invention as Gran Turismo," Yoshida said.
"These innovations are twinned with the option to join millions of like-minded individuals globally within the Gran Turismo community and to find a driving experience to suit, whether that is taking on the Top Gear test track, chucking cars around stunt arenas, go-karting, creating and sharing your own track or intense head-to-head races. Who, where and what to drive is completely down to the individual."
We’re going out on a limb here, but it certainly looks like we’re going to be in for quite a revolutionary game, after all.
