We've been treated to a whole host of new details over on the official PlayStation website for a number of upcoming PS5 titles, teasing what fans can expect to see when the next-gen console makes its debut.
One particular highlight you'll want to read all about focuses in on how Gran Turismo 7 capitalises on the PS5's SSD, 3D audio feature, and DualSense Haptic feedback to create a true next-gen experience.
In Gran Turismo 7 the new SSD will allow players to select from a huge variety of cars without being plagued with long load times. Gone are the days where you'd have to wait a good few moments until you could actually see the car that you've selected in the game only to ultimately decide you want a different car and have to wait all over again for it to load in.
But the new SSD isn't the only promising feature of the PS5, the site also details how both the DualSense controller's haptic feedback coupled with the Tempest 3D Audio will allow players to feel properly immersed. While the haptic feedback lets you feel the way the tyres connect with the road, the 3D Audio gives you a real sense of where other cars and drivers are around you.
Along with all these new features, Sony has shared that Gran Turismo 7 will be targeting 60 FPS and will support ray-tracing, 4K and HDR. You can see some of these graphical elements in action with a few of the new screenshots below.
Of course Gran Turismo 7 isn't the only game coming to next-gen. Sony also shared some information for the upcoming psychological horror game Returnal and how that also makes the most of the new tech in the PS5. Just like with Gran Turismo, Returnal uses the SSD for fast loading between portals when players jump between worlds. In other words, you'll have near-instant load times so that you don't have to spend forever waiting whenever you die and have to restart a level.
When it comes to DualSense, players will be able to use the adaptive triggers to switch instinctively between firing modes in Returnal. You'll also be able to use the haptic feedback to get a sense of the in-game actions whether they're big or small. All in all, the new tech offers players a bunch of quality of life improvements when it comes to gaming on the PS5.
