Developer Polyphony Digital has updated Gran Turismo 7 to support the newly released PlayStation VR 2 headset. Included as part of the “Update 1.29” patch, owners of both GT7 and Sony’s latest VR kit will be able to experience racing with a new level of realism and authenticity.
Along with this new support comes a VR showroom where players can get an up-close look at their vehicle collection. These modes are not available in two player split screen.

PSVR 2’s Sense Wand is fully supported in Gran Turismo 7 and provide haptic feedback based on your driving style. The improved display in Sony’s new headset also features a specially calibrated HDR experience, improved rendering based on eye position (a feature the game uses to blur edges where the gamer isn’t looking), and 3D audio support.
All of this will be available to game and VR headset owners at no additional cost. Unfortunately, the PS4 version of Gran Turismo 7 won’t be getting any VR updates, but that makes sense given the tech used in this latest PSVR 2 kit.
