More GT5 Details: High/Low Beams, Dynamic Crowds, No BBQ Smell

EuroGamer was first to share new details that emerged from the private GT5 presentation Yamauchi hosted at E3 on Wednesday, and now we’ve got even more information from MotorTrend, Kotaku, IGN, and GameSpot. Now, in addition to the new details I’ve already covered, here’s what we know:

  • Polyphony Digital is working on reducing load times and is still tweaking graphics ahead of the November release date.
  • The game has nearly filled all of the space available on Blu-Ray disc.
  • You’ll have the option to synchronize the game’s time of day with the track’s current local time.
  • The crowds will be dynamic, so there will be more tents, cars, and motorhomes at longer races.
  • Yamauchi admits his team may have “actually gone too far in modeling some of this detail” and suggested it might be “more suited to the next generation of PlayStation.”
  • Both high and low-beam headlights will be included, so you can flash slower cars as you’re about to pass them (how awesome will this be during the 24 hour races!?!). All lights will illuminate dirt, smoke, or other debris in the air.
  • NASCAR insisted that all of their series’ cars be playable on all circuits in the game.
  • It was previously mentioned that only 9 NASCAR cars will be included, but this was incorrect. There are simply 9 cars in the E3 2010 demo, but “many more” are coming.
  • With the exception of profanity, all of the Nurburgring’s graffiti has been re-created, just as it is in real life. According to Kotaku, they will attempt to keep the graffiti up-to-date before the game is shipped.
  • Players will be able to maintain an online profile to share and watch friend’s progress and statistics.
  • All cars (including standard models) will accumulate dirt and will have functional horns.
  • All cars will have functioning reverse lights.
  • More information will be revealed at Gamescom in Germany on August 18-22.
  • More Formula 1 teams will bring their cars to the game, in addition to Ferrari.
  • “While racing the 24 hours of Nurburgring, you can smell people’s barbecues — we couldn’t recreate that.” — Kazunori Yamauchi

Unfortunately, despite all of these details, there is still much confusion regarding the status of interior views on the 800+ “standard” car models in the game. Kotaku provides the most optimistic description:

The developers have created fully modeled interiors for the Premium cars, as well as doing detailed modeling for the car’s undercarriage and even the exhaust pipes! The Standard cars apparently won’t have the exact interior modeling. For example, an Enzo’s interior will look like the real deal, but your typical Mustang’s will look like exactly like Mustang’s.

Take that for what you will – hopefully Yamauchi will be able to clear this up during his live Twitter interview with @Honda tomorrow (12:00 PM, Pacific time, Thursday June 17th).

      @Philmangt

      If they went to the trouble to provide us with high beam and low beam lights, you’d think they’d want to include a great deal of night time stages, possibly all of them, which hopefully means dynamic transitions.

      As the info said, it’s possible to calibrate it so it’s the same time of day at the real track. It’s not daytime at Suzaka all the time!

      I get your joke and it’s actually pretty funny :-), but if you take it seriously, you can substitute the lack of buttons by its combination. Or you can use some kind of select menu like we saw in Crysis when you wanted to use some of the superhero skills – all within the game without need to interrupt the gameplay. G27 is definitely not necessary. :-)

      I believe what they are saying is that the premiums will have exactly detailed interiors one for one, but the standards will have generic interiors across manufacturers so all ford standard cars will have standard ford interior not necessarily the exact one for that model car. At least i hope cos that would be lame if you could only have cockpit view on premium cars.

    Why don’t they update nurburgring graffiti online so whenever you play the track it is up to date. Flashing headlights is very cool, I wonder if the turning on/off of the headlights is automatic when it gets dark and what happens if you pick a car with no lights such as F1 cars or you crash head on and smash the headlights? The more details they add the more we need to see how it all works together.

      I’m just thinking here, but possibly the journalists are asked prior the interviews not to specifically ask about cockpits, either so they can reveal them at GC or TGS, or they don’t want us to know they aren’t included. Hopefully it isn’t the latter!

    Is there any sort of information regarding the soundtrack? I’m particularly fond of the PS1 generations of GT, and if I do remember, the soundtrack of the American version was completely different from the Japanese one (which I prefer, jazzier, funkier and classier to drive around!).

    Also, I really do hope that they keep Moon Over The Castle as the opening theme in all versions – that song is just amazingly beautiful!

    1. JimInPT

      If they’re really running tight for disc space, they can ditch the crappy soundtracks completely as far as I’m concerned. When I install GT, the very first thing I do is go to Options and turn off all the music.

      Cars make their own music, and listening to it is not only part of the experience but necessary to improve performance.

    Now i even have to wash my car in a game in addition to my real car.

    btw. i`m pretty sure customization/tuning is a pretty big part of the game. GT was always about buying and tuning your cars, buying a Dodge RAM full of turbos and stuffing it in every car in your garage ^^ So there is no way PD skipped that part.

    I just hope they do it right and not like Forza did it. Why can I tune my camshaft, which makes the engine rev higher, without ever getting a new rev meter ?

    1. 280z06

      Im sure they meant exterior customization. There is no reason NOT to include engine, suspension, transmission, ect. The tuning i think is what made this game. The range and effects it has on the car were noticeable and that is what tugged in me and all my friends into this game. More customization the better, I think forza did well on that facet. On that note, time to bust out GT1 and see if i can tame my 9xxhp R33 again haha! Racing SS tires never wear(unless enduro)! I Cannot wait!

      While it is a nice touch, it’s not a new one – Metropolis Street Racer on the Dreamcast also used current local time for each track to control day/night, except that was the default and you had to fiddle about to override it. The problem there was that if you usually played at the same time (after work), the same tracks would always be at night etc.
      The amount of detail that has gone into GT5 though is just incredible. Slightly concerned about the loading times with that much content!

      Don’t get me wrong. I’m still so hyped for this game and I wish it could be bought tomorrow and it’s a definite buy for me, but still I am a little afraid to be satisfied too early…

    This business about the interior views really does worry me, I would hate to keep switching between interior & front bumper as for me it takes time to adjust and anything other than interior view just sucks however great news that the cars will accumulate dirt and have working horns.

    Are the NASCAR tracks going to be lit at night?
    Is there going to be a restriction on racing NASCAR/F1 at night on tracks that aren’t lit?

      There would have to be some sort of restriction in place I’d say! Unless they flood light the tracks for these cars at night.

      Or, you just floor it in the dark and hope you make it round! haha

    This is amazing, Highbeams, reverse lights, time synchronization, F1 cars. and they haven’t even revealed everything yet..

    My faith in gt5 has been restored. They will probably reveal so much more at Gamescom

    Am I able to see the interior in my Honda civic ballade sports?
    I am still confused. If we get a better standard interior than Flopza’s I will be a happy bunny.

    Just one thing: haven’t heard anything about AI… Please let it be improved. At least to the point it’s aware of your presence in the track.

    I don’t think I’m ever going to leave the house between now and November just in case I die. I cannot wait!! I really hope Bathurst is in there also a mountain to track stage from japan or something. Talking of photo mode ‘going into 3rd person mode means controlling a character, no?if so you should ne able to walk the tracks as well.

    Just reading these comments makes me feel weird. I know everyone wants what they want, and will be a bit disappointed if they don’t get it…ie skidmarks, AI, cockpit views, etc. Or making fun of things like the dynamic crowds, reverse lights and horns. But can you see what we are getting? We are getting WRC, JGTC(if thats what it is called anymore), NASCAR, FORMULA 1(maybe), D1GP cars, exotic cars, muscle cars, vintage cars, concept cars, everyday cars, slow cars, fast cars, basically we are getting A LOT! With beautifully rendered tracks. I am awe inspired by the sheer magnitude of this game. Its not even a game anymore, its something more. We are gettin all of this..for 60 bucks? Compare that to NFS series who pumps out a game per year..same price. This is Kaz’s dream not a profit pumping machine. So anyways yay!

      Yeah, I hope, we get a vintage-car race 1920s and 1930s only, around the Colloseum or something. PS2 couldn’t handle that, but PS3 can, maybe with less than 16 cars

    This post completely made my day… Reverse lights, low/high beams, up-to-date graffiti, local time of day, horns, Formula One, HORNS! (did I say “horns” twice? Well of course I did!) Though it is too bad we don’t get to smell the barbecues. Haha

      Yeah, I’m hoping that too… Forza’s engine sounds are incredible, and IMO, it adds to the realistic driving experience. (I’m not saying Forza 3 is realistic, I’m talking in general)
