Tutte le informazioni del caso sono già disponibili sul sito ufficiale gtddpro.fanatec.com, dal 26 Novembre sarà possibile ordinare i vari modelli, con la versione base da 5Nm al prezzo di euro 699,95 e la consegna prevista nel Marzo 2022.
Fanatec introduces the Gran Turismo™ DD Pro, the first official Direct Drive Wheel for the Gran Turismo™ series. The ready-to-race package, officially licensed for PlayStation®5 consoles and PlayStation®4 consoles, includes a high-performance direct-drive wheel base, steering wheel, and pedals. It was developed in parallel with the CSL DD, in close collaboration with Sony Interactive Entertainment and Polyphony Digital.
When Fanatec was founded in 1997, the goal was to create gaming hardware that would elevate the user experience through innovative design and cutting-edge technology. Since then, the company has positioned itself as the leading brand in sim racing, consistently raising the bar with products that focus on ease of use and driving immersion. The Gran Turismo™ DD Pro is a milestone product, setting new standards for performance.
The collaboration between Fanatec and Polyphony Digital starts with the Gran Turismo™ DD Pro, the first ever Direct Drive system developed for a Gran Turismo™ game. The Gran Turismo™ DD Pro is compatible with Gran Turismo™ Sport and Gran Turismo™ 7, the latest game in the series, set to release in 2022, and has bespoke inputs, tailored specifically for that game.
Fanatec, CEO, Thomas Jackermeier:
“The community has asked for an affordable direct drive wheel with load cell pedal and we took a lot of efforts to make the impossible come true. The steering wheel was entirely designed in collaboration with Polyphony Digital and we worked closely together to make everything work perfectly with Gran Turismo™Sport and the upcoming Gran Turismo™ 7 which is announced for release in 2022. Direct Drive is the new standard in sim racing and every racer who tried it once will never go back to a belt drive wheel.”
