The day is nearly here that we can finally get our hands on GT7, as it launches for PS4 and PS5 on 4 March. Here’s some information that you will probably want to know in the leadup to the game’s release.

Which edition should you buy?

There are a few different versions of the game that can be bought. For £59.99/€69.99 on PlayStation 4 and £69.99/€79.99 on PlayStation 5, players can pick up the Standard Edition of the game and if pre-ordered, it will also come with an extra 100,000 credits and some cars to boot.

The cars in question are the Castrol TOM’S Toyota Supra GT500, the Porsche 917 Living Legend Concept and the Mazda RX-Vision GT3 Concept Stealth Model. It’s highly likely that these cars will still be available for players who didn’t pre-order the game, but that they won’t be immediately in player’s garages.

There’s also the 25th Anniversary Edition which is only available for PlayStation 5. Along with all the content available from pre-ordering the Standard Edition, players can also have a Toyota GR Yaris decked out in a livery reflecting the nationality of the PSN account it’s attached to. If a player pre-orders the physical copy of the Anniversary Edition, they get a copy of the Gran Turismo 7 official soundtrack and an extra 1,000,000 credits on top of the 100,000 the Standard Edition pre-order brings.

But if anyone wants an extra 500,000 on top of that, they can pre-order GT7 digitally. This does mean having to sacrifice the soundtrack, but that’s a small price to pay for having an extra bit of money to spend on cars, which there will be a lot of since GT7 is centred around car collection.

Don’t have a PS5 yet?

Supply issues for PS5 still continue so for those who can only get GT7 for PS4 – which reportedly does run very smoothly even for the previous generation hardware – there are plans in place for if and when any PS4 players do eventually get their hands on a PS5.

Once the PS5 version of the game is available with the PS4 version already recognised on the account, the upgrade will only cost players £9/€9/$10. Also, rest assured, the save data will transfer over from the PS4 to the PS5.
