Gran Turismo 5 – Watch A GT-R Deal With Some Heavy Rain

1 min read


Gran Turismo 5 is the final corner and is shifting down to prepare itself for a final explosion of power down the pit straight.

In other words, it’s nearly out and it’s looking so very, very good right now. Someone managed to spot this video of Gran Turismo 5 at the Tokyo Game Show that shows lap of Nissan GT-R in the rain. Boy, oh boy does it look good.

You know in previous generation’s games, I really couldn’t care less about weather, it just made things more difficult.

These days with the weather system and effects in games like F1 2010 and Gran Turismo 5, the addition of droplets on the windshield, spray, haze and more means that a race has become a really great challenge and adds more to the game. Following closely behind another car with spray hitting the windshield and their lights being the only indicator of where they are can be incredibly exhilarating, not to mention atmospheric.

Check out the full gameplay video after the jump.
