As copies of Gran Turismo 7 are somewhat unexpectedly now landing in players’ postboxes, we’re starting to see some pieces of information about the game leaking out into the wild, too. The first of these is, of course, the game’s set of PSN Trophy awards, which has been posted on Twitter.
Trophies are essentially additional tasks for each game — they may be challenges you’ll find during gameplay, specific tasks that require a little digging, or feats of endurance — that are pinned to your PlayStation profile for all to see.
There are three tiers of trophy, with Bronze trophies worth 15 points for minor tasks, Silver trophies worth 30 points for more significant challenges, and Gold trophies worth 90 points for the most time-consuming or difficult events. Collect all the trophies in a given game and you’ll be rewarded with a Platinum trophy worth 300 points.
They’re loaded up the moment you start a game for the first time, and as a result those players who are popping in their new GT7 discs are finding out, and sharing, the list for the game.
All titles since January 1 2009 have been required to include Trophies, which means GT7 will be the fourth Gran Turismo to feature them, and as a result we already knew what to expect for some of the list.
There’s some good news right away. The incredibly time-consuming and difficult trophies from GT Sport — which required you to win 91 onlines races or reach player level 50 — have gone. In fact the list as a whole looks considerably more achieveable than GT Sport’s, which means there’ll be many more platinums this time round.
As usual there’s trophies for driving fast, with 200mph, 500km/h, and 600km/h targets for three different trophies (you’ll want a Dodge Tomahawk and Special Stage Route X for that last one).
There’s also some interesting distance milestones in the mix too. You’ll need to drive as far as the first ever 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1923 and the length of Route 66 (again), and get social to drive the distance of an Atlantic crossing and the entire German Autobahn network in online modes.
Three photo challenges return from Sport, as you’ll need to take 100 photos, and snap an R18 at Le Mans and a BMW Gr.3 car at the Nurburgring again. There’s also challenges for buying various cars — including the same one ten times — and getting through Circuit Experiences.
Curiously there’s only one gold trophy this time round, and it’s awarded for earning gold times in all of the game’s licences. However there’s a second, hidden gold trophy which will be awarded for completing Menu Book 39, which unlocks the finale movie.
