GT5 Gets Weather Changes, Night Racing & Damage Rendering
Audi is obviously looking forward to being in the coming Gran Turismo 5.
After all, the Quattro company has created a http://www.yukom-client.de/client_space/audi_ar_08/#/nuerburgring/realtiyandillusion to promote its car on the Nürburgring in real life and in the game, and it interviewed GT5 mastermind Kazunori Yamauchi about what fans can expect.
To quote: Yamauchi-san revealed that the game is going to offer not only more vehicles, more online features, and increased detail, but it will also include night racing, damage rendering (previously confirmed), and weather changes.
If you watch the Audi R8 Meets Gran Turismo 5 video, one of the game developers even talks of one day providing weather reports for an entire 24-hour race, and you can read the interview with Yamauchi-san by clicking on a PDF link http://www.gtplanet.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/audi-r8-meets-gran-turismo-5.pdf. The graphical and gameplay additions are surely welcome and long overdue, and could return GT5 to the head of the racing sim pack - whenever it finally gets here...
