One of the stranger new additions to Gran Turismo 7 is the Music Rally, an entirely new mode which puts a focus on audio rather than racing. Speaking during a media presentation earlier this week, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi explained that he wanted to find a way for fans to enjoy the game’s enormous soundtrack while driving.
The solution is a bizarre mode, which sees you driving through checkpoints to “replenish” beats. These beats are “spent” on the tempo of the song, meaning you’ll need to drive quicker if the music has a faster BPM. Despite this, the overall concept of the mode is to allow you to enjoy the audio, rather than to focus too much on racing.
It’s a weird addition, but it looks like it could be fun – especially if you’re a fan of the game’s soundtrack, which will feature 70 artists and over 300 songs. Other musical additions include a new replay option which will sync camera transitions to audio from the soundtrack, allowing you to create unique videos of your races.
I was not a fan of the pop music they chose during the stream but if there's more of that classical stuff I'm game. Ish. And if somehow I could incorporate Spotify that would be groovy, as the kids say. Don't they? Anyhoo..music mode will be the last mode I play. I'd have to have completed everything else twice before I'd be bothered with it.....unless it has Muse tracks.
Music is one of the most fun parts if racing games.... This mode sounds pretty fun. I'm not much of a GT player and wouldn't pay full price, but when is hits sales, this mode might be what makes me pull the trigger!
would have been nice to have Spotify integration for this mode.
The songs that fit with racing games:
Red Zone by Tatsh + NAOKI.
STAY by Victoria.
Beat of The Rising Sun by Dave Rodgers
RIDE ON THE LIGHT (HI GREAT MIX) by Mr.T (Tomoyuki Uchida)
@Anti-Matter Well it depends on the racing game. The reason Mario Kart has that specific jazz fusion soundtrack is because that’s the music they used for F1 coverage in Japan. Of course Eurobeat works with Initial D but that’s not the vibe Gran Turismo emanates at all.
This was so strange. It sounded pretty decent…almost like a time trail arcade mode but having to keep the music going. Or the potential to gather extra beats and create new mixes when racing with people. But then I watched ign preview and it’s being more sold as a kids mode
"These beats are “spent” on the tempo of the song, meaning you’ll need to drive quicker if the music has a faster BPM."
Oh, try to ride with this song.
Delta MAX by DM ASHURA from DDR UNIVERSE 3.
BPM = from 100 then gradually speed up by 1 BPM every quarter beat until 573 BPM.
How fast can you go ?
I look forward to the music, I wouldn't have found King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Nonagon Infinity, without GT Sport 😀
Eurobeat song is always perfect for racing games. 😁
I always play racing games with the game audio down and spotify playing my music anyway so I'll just keep doing that.
I hope you can still customise the menu music. Can add the Forza 4 menu soundtrack and call it a day.
This is a really cool addition. Who hasn't driven along to the tempo of a song in real life? People get in flow states all the time when listening to music, so this is a really natural extension for a game if done right.
Best have some Scooter in there.
Shame. The time they invested in this they could have put in to the engine, the physics, the online, the controller/wheel - anything but the one thing many will turn off the second the opening video completes - the music.
fgs what a waste of resources (imho).
@riceNpea "And if somehow I could incorporate Spotify that would be groovy, as the kids say. Don't they?"
I think its either sick, peng or lit nowdays. Rediculous street words 🤣🤣
It would be a suprise if you can add your own music, Sony hasn't allowed it in beat saber so i doubt it will be in here either. I remember ages ago i got beat hazard on PC and had to pay for a DLC to use my own music. I'm sure there's licence issues and the like expecially to use Spotify. Anyways it looks a fun mode to play when you just want a quick spin.

Good luck trying to stream this mode unless some kind of arrangement has been made. You'll get DMCA'd inside 5 minutes and Twitch will probably permaban you - unless you're Pokimane, because simp money. And Twitch likes simp money.
