There are 39 menu books in Gran Turismo 7 single player world map career mode and it takes a long time to go through all of them. It takes so long that once you complete all of the menu books and thereby unlock all of GT7’s tracks and modes, you may not know how to play GT7 without Luca forcing you to do it every step of the way. The good news is that GT7 is getting better after you finish the cafe. After such a long, linear, tightly scripted slog, you can finally play the game the way you want, and here are just a few of the options open to you.
GT7 has three different multiplayer modes: Lobby, 2P Split Screen and Sport. Taken together, these modes cater to a wide range of player preferences, ranging from purely social to highly competitive. The daily races and championships in Sport mode are your best bet if you really want to put your driving (and tuning) skills to the test.
Get all trophies
Even if you’re not a dedicated trophy hunter, trophies can still be a great way to set goals in open-end games like GT7. By the time you’ve completed the cafe, you’ve probably unlocked about half of all the trophies in the game, leaving about 30 more trophies left. Almost all of GT7’s trophies simply require you to play the game a lot of in various ways, with only the Hard Work Pays Off trophy, which requires you to earn gold with all licenses, which requires a fairly high level of skill.
Collect all cars
There are currently 424 cars in GT7, with more likely to be added in future updates. The cafe requires you to collect around 70 of these, which leaves another 350 to save. Can you really claim to have experienced GT7 fully if you haven’t driven every car it has to offer?
Customize your cars
If you’re more the creative type than the competitive type, then GT7 offers a huge range of car customization tools that you can use to make your rides truly unique. Visit the GT Auto Pavilion and choose from hundreds of wheels, liveries and colors, custom parts and racing merchandise. And if you really want to express yourself, there’s a powerful livery editor to plaster your car with unique designs of your own creation.
Complete all missions
There are 48 missions to complete in GT7, divided into sets of 8. Completing a set gives you a gift car, and earning gold for a whole set gives you another, better gift car. While some missions feel a lot like license tests, some of them are fun special race types like endurance races, drag races, and drift challenges.
Get all licenses
To complete all of the menu books in GT7, you only need to advance to the National A license, leaving three more licenses to purchase. The International B, International A, and Super licenses don’t give you access to any additional competitions (at least not yet), but completing them will give you some extra credits and gift cars.
Win all World Circuits races and championships
Most menu book objectives only require third or better place in races and championships. So if you’re looking for an extra challenge, how about setting out to win them all? There are also plenty of races that aren’t tied to the menu books, many of which have strict PP limits and are quite difficult to win. You don’t really complete GT7 until you get first place in all of them.
Compete with yourself in time trials
Going head-to-head is exciting, but you will never have a tighter competition than racing against yourself. Each circuit has an opportunity to race against the clock on different PP levels. You will be surprised at how fiercely you compete against your own ghost car.
Play arcade mode
Arcade mode is perfect when you just need a quick GT7 fix without spending hours tinkering around in the tuning shop. Simply select a racetrack, select arcade mode, then select difficulty, and the game will automatically match you with suitable rivals for your current car.
Play custom races
If you are fed up with Luca explaining you exactly how to play GT7 during the Menu Book saga, then make use of the custom races option. It allows you to set every parameter for a race, so for example if you’re tired of all the “overtake challenges” that count as racing in preset races and championships, you can choose Gri’s start. You can also race against your own cars so you know the PPs are roughly balanced every time and that the race is fair.
