Gran Turismo Sport released to mostly positive reviews in October, though the lack of noticeable wet-weather (rainy) conditions surprised many racing fans. With the exception of Northern Isle Speedway, rain is non-existent on all other tracks, which is a surprise when compared to Forza Motorsport 7 and Project Cars 2 that have implemented variable weather conditions on all tracks. And that looks to be changing according to a recent interview GT Planet had with Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi.
Yamauchi told GT Planet that the developers just have to work on adding wet conditions to previously released tracks via updates to the game as all of Gran Turismo Sports’ cars were built to be compatible with the rainy conditions and have functional windshield wipers that the developers could activate in the game.
Yes. It’s just a matter of adding wet conditions to other tracks through updates. All of the cars in the game are already built to be compatible with rain and have working windshield wipers.
He also told GT Planet that players should not expect these kinds of conditions to come to all of the game’s tracks, as tracks set in a more desert-like location or places that get minimal rainfall will likely not get this feature for obvious reasons.
[Weather] probably won’t be on all of the tracks. For example, you don’t need weather conditions at Willow Springs.
Gran Turismo Sport is currently available exclusively on PS4. Right now there is no timeline for when players can expect to see variable weather conditions in-game, as it seems like they’ll be patched in as the developers at Polyphony Digital update the game.
For those of you still playingGran Turismo 6 on PS3, you’ll have to jump over to Gran Turismo Sport soon, as Gran Turismo 6’s online features will be shut down in March 2018.
