Despite an apparent no-filming policy, short clips of GT Sport are slowly emerging from Gamescom 2016. Eagle-eyed GTPlanet member aceboy127 has spotted what appears to be a slight upgrade to the replay mode of the game.
Reviewing a race between packs of the newest MX-5 and the recently-revealed S-FR, a small menu bar can be seen at the very bottom of the screen. Offering a cleaner look than the comparable buttons in GT6, the menu shows that the rewind and fast-forward options both work in 10-second intervals.
The Replay Modes of previous GT games have been criticized for a comparative lack of fine-grain control. This could suggest Polyphony have taken note of these short-comings and have begun working to improve the level of power players have when reviewing races. With the FIA championship being a major part of the title, a more robust review system would be welcome.
As the game is still a work-in-progress, we’ll have to wait a few more months to see what — if any — improvements are available to gamers.
You can catch the full video here, which includes footage of the afore-mentioned race alongside glimpses of the familiar Tokyo and Nürburgring tracks as well.
GT Sport releases mid-November, 2016. Stay tuned for more details on the game as they make their way out of Gamescom.
