Gamescom Gran Turismo 6 Trailer
The new trailer for Gran Turismo 6 clearly shows the improvements developer, Polyphony Digital, made since the previous trailer. From the footage we can see there are not any framerate drops or performance issues that we saw in the previously released demo. As always with pre-release game trailers, it has to be kept in mind that this is not a finished product.
When using 1080p resolution, the Gran Turismo 6 demo has been plagued with framerate drops when using certain views as well as when using the new transparency and lighting effects. The workaround was to downgrade to 720p resolution. Hopefully this will be remedied when the final game is released on December 6th 2013.
The Gamescom trailer also showcases new cars, Chevrolet Corvette Stingray anyone? How about a Pagani Huayra? Seeing this trailer makes me want to buy a PlayStation 3 just to play the game. Will we see you on the grid then? I certainly hope so.
Gran Turismo 6 will be released on December 6th, 2013 on the PlayStation 3.
