GTPlanet has been able to confirm that Gran Turismo 7 will support the ability for players to import their created liveries and decals from Gran Turismo Sport.
Livery creation has been one of GT Sport’s major successes. The title was the first in the series to support a full vehicle livery editor and it’s one of the best in the business. Combined with a facility to upload custom-made vector graphics into the game, it’s allowed players to create some impressive liveries with relatively little effort.
It’s something Kazunori Yamauchi himself has commented on, bringing up the fact that just over 12 months after Gt Sport launched, players had created 51 million liveries compared to only taking 33 million photographs, despite livery creation being a more labor-intensive task.
However, with GT7 arriving soon, players have been wondering what will happen to all those liveries they’ve made and decals they’ve uploaded for Sport. Would they be able to bring them across into GT7, or would they expire when GTS is retired?
We raised the question with Yamauchi during a round-table Q&A session supporting today’s State of Play event, and the response was great news for the livery creators out there.
“Yes,” said Yamauchi, “you will be able to migrate those things from GT Sport to GT7.”
Of course, as we’ve already seen, GT7’s livery editor has a couple of differences from the one in GT Sport, including the ability to place window decals, so players might want to tweak their creations a little in the new editor. However this should mean that they won’t have to start from scratch.
GT7 will launch on March 4, on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
