Sony exec: Track editor in Gran Turismo 5

Gran Turismo 5 will come with track creation tools, SCE Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has apparently revealed. Speaking in a Q&A on the official PlayStation EU blog, he almost casually mentions that “creating and sharing your own track” are among options available to players.

Says the executive when asked what can be expected from the oft-delayed racer: “Gran Turismo 5 will offer gamers an experience more rich, more in-depth and more exciting than they might expect … it will also feature new game-enhancing graphical effects such as damage, night racing and weather.”

He continues: “These innovations are twinned with the option to join millions of like-minded individuals globally within the Gran Turismo community and to find a driving experience to suit, whether that is taking on the Top Gear test track, chucking cars around stunt arenas, go-karting, creating and sharing your own track or intense head-to-head races.”

The game was just last week dated for a November launch.
