Why does Gran Turismo 7 require an Internet connection in practically all of its modes?

The next installment in the Polyphony Digital driving series has already been placed on the starting grid, with a release date set for 2022. Gran Turismo 7, which is in development for the PS4 and PS5, will include an Internet connection requirement in practically all of its game modes. In an interview with Eurogamer, Kazunori Yamauchi, the game's director, stated that this choice was made to prevent cheats from taking advantage of the situation.

“The online connection requirement isn't unique to GT Cafe; it's simply to avoid cheating by allowing individuals to change the save data. That is the primary reason for the need for an Internet connection.”

Furthermore, he says that they have chosen this option for two other functions: “One is to direct users to their next aim and for them to acquire some of these cars.” The other is for when they return with the cars they were assigned to. It gives some background on this culture as well as the history of the vehicles they have added to their collection.

Gran Turismo 7 on PS5 has two graphic modes.

Yamauchi revealed the two graphical options that users can configure when playing PlayStation version 5 in statements to MeriStation. The fact is that it is in line with other items in the console, i.e., one that prioritizes image quality and will work at 4K resolution, and another that prioritizes frame rate, which will remain at 60 frames per second.

Gran Turismo 7 will be published for PS4 and PS5 on March 4, 2022. The upgrade to the new generation will not be free if the title was purchased on the previous computer. You will have to spend 10 euros to do it from now on.
