One of the best selling video games in the history of video games is Gran Turismo. It has sold tens of millions of copies all around the world and on December 6th, 2013 the newest installment, Gran Turismo 6 (GT6) will hit the shelves just in time for Christmas. As expected gamers will find some of the best and most expensive cars on the planet right at their fingers tips for their racing enjoyment. The graphics are better than ever as well, showing a multitude of racing venues just as if you were in the car speeding through Rome yourself. With over 1200 cars available on 33 different tracks and 71 different layouts you’d think you would never get bored, but the designers took things to the next level.
Design Your Own Course
As a new feature the designers of GT6 have done a bit more to help blur the line between game and reality. This time around users will have the ability to design their own race tracks from roads that they travel everyday. That’s right you will be able to use an app downloaded to your smart phone and GPS tracking to track your drive to work or to the mall. The app will measure everything from turns to changes in altitude.
Do you live in the mountains? Just imagine the fun you’ll have designing raceways through the Blue Ridge mountains in Tennessee or the Rockies near Breckenridge. Track your commute to school or the office and master every turn to see how quickly you can get from point A to point B. Gamers will be able to share these self tracked and designed raceways with others users and friends too. The only limitation placed on designers will be keeping the track within a 20 square mile area. So there won’t be any designing of your own cross country race ways but the possibilities are still endless.
As Autoblog.com mentions the app will be available for download a few weeks after the initial release of the game and will definitely add a cool new spin on gaming. Of course your own custom track may have the same layout as the neighborhood where your girlfriend lives but the scenery won’t look the same. So a little imagination may be needed as you speed past the high school principals house with a certain finger out the window.
Gran Turismo 6 is available for pre-order now on Amazon and if you pre-order now Amazon will give you a 5 car pack and $1 million credit inside the game. This way you can jump right in and start with a few spectacular cars.
