Gran Turismo 7 is set for release in March 2022, and we’ve got details on each special edition of the game. As confirmed by PlayStation, there’s going to be a standard edition as well as a 25th Anniversary Edition. These come with differing preorder bonuses and extra content, so you might need some help deciding which one to get. That’s why our handy guide will explore the difference between the two versions, to help you make up your mind.
Gran Turismo 7 | Standard and 25th Anniversary Edition Differences
Firstly, the good news is that whichever version of Gran Turismo 7 you preorder, it’ll come with some free bonuses. You’ll get:
- Toyota Castrol TOM’s Supra
- Mazda RX-VISION GT3 Concept
- Porsche 917K Living Legend
- 100,000 in-game credits
The physical version of the 25th Anniversary Edition also comes with these:
- Exclusive steelbook case
- 1,100,000 in-game credits
- Toyota GR Yaris
- 30 Manufacturer/Partner Avatars
Evidently, you get a lot more with the special edition — especially the credits, which will let you purchase practically anything at launch. There’s some exclusive cars and skins, too: The Yaris even comes with country-exclusive skins, depending on your region. However, it’s also worth remembering that these bonuses come at a price. The standard edition of Gran Turismo 7 will cost $69.99 on PS5, with the special edition at $89.99. You’ll have to decide whether the extra $20 is worth all those bonus items.
Equally, there’s an upgrade fee if you start off with a PS4 copy of the game, and wish to upgrade to PS5 down the line. That’s a $10 flat fee – though you can’t upgrade your 25th Anniversary Edition across consoles. That’s par for the course at this point, though, as Sony’s new business model confirms.
There you have it, the various versions of Gran Turismo 7. The differences are small, but could prove crucial when the game actually launches — so make your decision wisely!
