Members of the press who visited Polyphony Digital last week were treated to something special: an unpublished Gran Turismo 5 trailer showcasing an apparently more impressive damage model. The news comes from Spanish site MeriStation, making them first to mention this clip. Unfortunately, cameras were carefully controlled in the screening room, so we have only this description to go by:
After the lecture, the lights went to witness in all its splendor the trailer unpublished announced that no one outside those walls had seen so far. It was a moment of excitement because, obviously, everyone wanted to see the deformation and damage.
The video begins with a street circuit and with electronic music in the background. Then we can see the cars, especially new ones at its best going around the track, the GT style of life. We see cars NASCAR, rally, Lamborghinis and Bugattis. We see the pits in full and frenetic action. The images come from the replay mode. We run at night. The modeling is clearly at the level expected. And finally we see the first deformation and cracks on cars. There are a few shouts of excitement among those present. They are short but intense second accident. A lack of a better word, awesome.
We also see a Ferrari with a big city in the background. The camera rises to give a more global perspective. The video ends. The truth is that we are left wanting more. A little short, but intense. When just the trailer, the media present burst into applause greeting. Yamauchi, amid which he said are still working on the night mode to make it as realistic as possible.
If the video is as polished as it is described, this could indicate it will be released publicly in the coming weeks and months. Needless to say, if anyone did manage to record this, please let me know…
