“Chocobo GP” is arriving on March 10, 2022
We got some more information about upcoming “Final Fantasy” racer “Chocobo GP” this week, including the fact that it will be available for purchase on March 10, 2022. In addition to the release date, it was revealed that a free-to-play version of the game called “Chocobo GP Lite” will be available as well, but won’t offer the same experience as the full game. The game still looks like a ton of fun to us, and we’re excited to give it a try early next year.
“Gran Turismo 7” has a new behind the scenes video
Sony has released a new “Gran Turismo 7” hype video, this one focused on what the superior technology of the PS5 means for the GT series. The video calls out the haptic feedback of the DualSense controllers as well as the controllers’ adaptive triggers, which can provide complex touch feedback and resistance to players. According to the video, the “Gran Turismo” team has taken advantage of this tech to improve how braking feels in the game, intending to provide a higher level of realism than ever before. The video also mentions that the game will support ray tracing, one of the hottest new features in the AAA gaming space of recent years, as well as 4K HDR resolution and 60FPS performance. Everything shown of the game continues to look stunning, and “GT 7” is sure to be one of the biggest racing game releases ever. Interested in pre-ordering? You can do that right here.
