Night Racing, Weather, Indy Cars (IRL) Confirmed for GT5

Our own user Digital-Nitrate has discovered an early copy of the February issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine, and it’s got some pretty incredible news! Indy (“IRL”) cars have been confirmed, in addition to “weather effects, as well as night racing for all tracks”! Here’s a nice little summary of everything that’s discussed and confirmed:

  • 1,000+ vehicles
  • All vehicles have modeled cockpits (170 premium cars will have interior damage modeling)
  • All vehicles will have both physical and mechanical damage modeling
  • Indy (IRL) cars and tracks
  • NASCAR cars and track
  • Up to 16 players online
  • High-definition video uploads directly to YouTube
  • Multi-display rendering
  • Head-tracking
  • Full weather and night racing on all tracks
  • Night/Day on all tracks

    tire marks should be in it because the creator, what ever his name is, said in an interview somewhere that he likes to pay attention to detail like a tree on the side of the road that is there in real life and you might not no that, so if he wants to make it that real i think that little things like tire marks and reverse lights are a must have, and tire marks do make my experience much better, and for those of us that like to muck around would like it too, it gets boring just racing around tracks its all the same, they need to have a open world stage and more customizing and i no allot of you just race fanboys hate but the majority of people want a bit more freedom than just a car and a circle to play with, thats why forza is not such a bad game it has a real community, i could go on and on but i just hope gt5 delivers.

    Oh my god… I think I just came in my pants a little bit! This game is going to be insane! Forget Forza 3, it’s just a Gran Turismo clone. It can never beat the real thing!

    When this game comes out I wont eat, sleep or leave the house for months! Lol, I’ll have my girlfriend saying “c’mon honey, lets have sex…” and I’ll be like “no bitch! can’t you see I’ve nearly got enough money for the Lamborghini Murcielago!?!?”

    Okay, people. I had a chance to look at the actual magazine article. Let me just tell you… Polyphony Digital never fails to deliver on surprises. I noticed the two pictures of night racing with the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. The track in question was most likely Special Stage Route 5. The environment actually looks and seems dark. The night pictures from the pages of that magazine has about the most realistic night look I’ve seen in any GT. It’s actually DARK, and I even noted reflections of the paint on the road. This game will blow minds.

    I’m very impressed with the night driving deal as much as any other news tidbits from this magazine. How can you NOT be excited for this if you are a GT fan?

    As good as all this news is, I still can’t stand the uber-stiff chase cam. This is my preferred view to play the game.

    After playing the time trial demo, it seems even stiffer than GT4, which I forced myself to get used to, just so I was able to play the game. It’s a nightmare on the rally when the rigidity of the camera makes it appears that the car remains motionless and the track just spins around it. As it does whenever you spin off the track. It makes me feel sick and sends my eyes funny!

    I’ve owned and played every single incarnation of GT. They went back to the more loose chase cam for GTPSP, a la GT1-3, to which I rejoiced, and hope it would be like this for GT5.

    The thing is with me, I just love to see the latest car I’ve just bought in the game in all it’s HD rendered glory, not the bumper cam where all I see are 2 giant dials, that’s basically a total waste of time rendering the car!

    I suppose the cockpit cam is the next best thing, but it’s not ideal for how I like to play the game. Which is why it won’t be an essential purchase. More a rent to see if I get on with either the stiff ‘rotating track round the car’ cam, or the cockpit cam.

    I dont believe this until i see it in action.. And how can they do it so quickly? I mean, they also need to make physics for rain then.. How quick can they be? Of course, the game was already done by summer 2009, so i guess they’ve spent a lot of time making all these add-ons (: But i wanna see it before i believe in it. Getting hyped now, and they suddently announce that this is fake, would simply kill me ;S. so no Hype.

    “We don’t need skid marks, more than half of us use cockpit view and the only time we look back is to see how close the competition is. Next some people gonna complain about it raining and the windshield wipers not working then because your MTM or LeBree exhaust system on your B6 S4 sounds different than the exhaust on GT5 you’ll complain about that too.

    Some of you never played racing sims, do you? It is true, you can´t see skid marks of your own car while driving. But you can see skid marks of your opponents or while watching replays. It is just a little feature and if it is missed, it will not ruin the game. But it increases the realism, cause you can imagine, where all the skid marks on the track are coming from and it is possible to calculate situations on track or reactions of other drivers-

    But it is definetly stupid to publish a game as “the real driving simulation” or what ever but forgot to include those simple features.

    So don´t be stupid and believe, that skid marks are totally dispensable.

    Weather and day / night may not be dynamic. Don’t assume this. It may just have some wet tracks and ‘night lighting’ for all tracks. I am a little concerned that the article cannot confirm rollover (which I thought PD had done so already), but talk about such features as weather and night driving.

    The damage issue has been cleared up. The 170 premium cars thing was an issue before but damage for all cars, with interior damage for premium (race) cars is brilliant news.

    Also happy to hear about the inclusion of Indycar. Even though I do not watch it, the inclusion of as many different race cars is a good move.

    Multi-display sounds great, too.

    To be honest, Skidmarks isn’t something that i’d go crazy over. nor was damage. but skidmarks would make the game more embracing. and im not talking about really thick black lines either, something simple but effective, and even if they go away on the next lap or 2nd lap so be it. if they ever do it via a patch my thoughts on the game wont change either way.

    There is NO DYNAMIC weather from what i see. just day/night (settings) and rain on and off settings and maybe snow for WRC.

    This has made my day.
    in some ways GT is a car collection, anyone with a PS can drive cars from all over the world. GT4 had a collection of real world tracks( thank you PD for La Sarth & the Nurb) I belive there will be a collection of race series in GT5. Kaz wanted to show the world American raceing, not to make us happy or what ever, but because he has already given American car culture THE WORLD!

    The F1 collection in GT3 was amazing! After unlocking them and learning their stories I became an even bigger fan, I could have never imagined this before GT3’s launch. So on the eve of what will most likely be the greatest F1 season ever, the greatest game ever will be released, and both will change the world!

    WOW!! This is great great news!!

    Can you imagine night racing on “The Ring”? That will just blow my mind. It will be interesting to see on a track like this if times are different from day racing to night due to the lack of light?

    Also, I wondering if rain can fall while its dark? A mixture of both? Only time will tell! :)

    I can’t say I doubted any of this..

    Once GT5 arrives, my life as a social human being outside of my house ceases to exist.

    Nice feature list!!

    Amazing news! I still can’t believe how much stuff they added to the series!

    Also, could that poster be our first look at the game cover? It sure looks like it!

    Hey Dave my PS3 died last night. YLOD :( Hopefully it’ll be fixed soon so I can play GT5 against you.

    Thank you so much for posting in such a high resolution. It’s so wonderful to see these on a 50″ KURO plasma on my PS3. The PS3’s zoom and pan features are almost better than having a mag in my hands!!!

    Thank you again!

    you can opt not to load your files right away. my plan is to play the game from scratch for a month or two and then load my GTpsp and prologue files. that way i can get to drive most of the cars without grinding forever.

    very excited about night driving on all tracks! i only have a few questions left about the game. the main one is what the max number of cars on track is.

    they forgot to mention, that the Super GT Series is also included. You see it in the last trailer. On another site, I read, that it is not be sure, if the weather system is included or not. It is ready, but the decission is not made.

    night racing is going to be epic, i guess that means night time colours within the cockpit too (lighting)

    @s0l1dsn8k3: They didn’t actually mentioned day/night cycle. I’m a bit pessimistic about that, because the only thing they mention is night racing for every circuit. I would, of course, be very happy to see 24h endurance races with day/night cycle.

    What? We have January 6th and they got a copy of February? How is that possible? I would not be surprised, when this is a fake.

    But if it is true, I am a happy young man. All tracks with night and weather….how the hell did they managed that in 2 month? I hope, it looks realistic and not so crappy like the first try of damage system. That is the second part, where I hope, it does a good job. I will see deformations and not parts falling off.

    Letßs hope the best and let´s hope, that we Europeans do not have to wait till end of the year.

    This is the bomb we’ve all been waiting for.

    Finally … a “TRUE” 24hr endurance race. Let’s hope they also have the option to save mid-race for A Spec so I don’t want to leave the PS3 on all day all night just so I can resume and continue later. I never really played GT4’s 24hr races because of that and I didn’t like using the B Spec driver. I want to DRIVE IT!

    Nascar and IRL are definitely American-Pleasers, but it’s still a great bonus. The “All tracks” statement needs a bit clarification though. Looking forward to the complete track list to confirm this.

    Can’t wait till the spring time when it comes out. It’s gonna make Forza 3 look so …. last decade.

      @pegaz2507: The features have been mentioned before, but Yamauchi has since mentioned that they might not make it into the game for whatever reason. This is big news because they’re 100% confirmed now.

    I don’t understand why people complain about Nascar being in. It’s not like this hurt the number of other cars in there. I love playing NASCAR (not so much watching it) and I’m not an american. It’s not very polite hating the americans because they get something. My only concern is that NASCAR with 16 cars is not a real NASCAR.

    I think they didn’t yet showd deformation either, did they? Only parts of cars falling off, not deformating the shape itself.. And where is that Weather change part?? I cant find it 0_0

    Good article but it says it’s not known if the cars will roll over, I thought that was confirmed on the actual PD website? Also the head tracking section says you can look out of the side and rear windows, I can kind of get the side window but how do you look out the back window by moving your head and still see what’s going on!? Anyway I can’t wait for this game and I hope the info keeps coming.

    (sorry for the double post) Ive just been reading through it, and it said that your cars and money from prologue can be carried over to GT5, its sounds all very good, but what happened to going to the second hand dealer and buying a 90’s saloon, and gradually improving it? (eventually becoming ur trusty pride and joy) Imagine racing the sunday cup in an F430 and u get the idea…

    …nice, just to include LMS series (or mix of all endurance series to have many cars for Le Mans with GTs and LMPs). And weather confirmed, thats something i look forward more than damage.
    I think that in the end GT5 will surpass (most of) our hopes and wishes ;)
