Publish date:

A track editor, go karting and a stunt arena – those are just three of the until now unknown new features that will be filling out Gran Turismo 5's already bulging feature-set when it finally hits the grid on November 2nd.

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,” SCE Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida told

Not only will Gran Turismo 5 deliver an even more comprehensive set of cars and courses than gamers saw with previous iterations, it will also feature new game-enhancing graphical effects such as damage, night racing and weather.

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.”

The new announcement follow shortly after confirmation of a whole host of other additions including real-time damage modelling, 1000+ licensed vehicles, 32-player online multiplayer, voice chat and YouTube video uploading.

Oh, and the game will support 3D too.
