The Long Awaited ‘Gran Turismo Sport’ Video Game will finally launch on October 17, 2017

The Long Awaited ‘Gran Turismo Sport’ Video Game will finally launch on October 17, 2017

The Gran Turismo Sport will launch on October 17th for North America and the 18th for Europe. It was originally set to launch November last year; the game’s release was delayed last August not to sacrifice quality for a quicker release date. But Polyphony, the game’s creator, just completed the closed beta phase it started in March and is now in the final stages of polishing the game.

Along with the launch date, more information about the game will be unveiled in between now and its release, including creative tools and all of the and tracks that will be available. They have created something that delivers an extraordinary experience in terms of the graphics, sound, and physics simulation; an experience that can only be enjoyed on PlayStation.


Most of the time, you will see cars sticking rigorously to the race line meaning, overtakes have to be done with either pinpoint precision or bullish aggression, there will be times when cars collide and crashes occur, forcing you to adapt and react to difficult situations. The lighting effects are far better than previous Gran Turismo entries, with the glare of the sun beautifully reflecting off the track and these gorgeous mounds of metal. However, the sun shone on every track, all the time. The continued lack of dynamic weather in a world where Driveclub delights us with glorious weather effects is a noticeable archaism.

The Gran Turismo Sport cars are stunning, photorealistic and something any car enthusiastic can stare at, for hours. Sport’s new ‘Scapes’ mode can place any number of cars in a series of over 1,000 photographs and manipulate lighting, focus and other effects being the best place for this, is the perfect example of how amazing the game can look, but in motion the game fails to wow.


Each car has its own unique behaviors and twist. Taking on the Nurburgring in a modest Mazda is certainly a different experience compared to a Ferrari 458. Learning to tame each car is part of the brilliance of Gran Turismo, and it was certainly enjoyable in my brief time with Sport.

When on long straights or having to nail a tight corner, the room disappeared and nothing existed but the road. The cars had a real sense of weight on the road and were all fun to master.


There will also be a few other editions of Gran Turismo Sport in addition to the standard package. The Limited Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition will include additional avatars, in-game credit and other perks. They’re priced at $70 and $80, respectively. The GT Sport will be available for PS4 only, as Gran Turismo has always been a Sony PlayStation console exclusive. However, the Forza Motorsport 7 is coming to PC. Right now, Forza Motorsport is the king of simcade racing, better than Gran Turismo.

Sony Offers 4 day Preview of Gran Turismo Sport Video game on PS4

Sony is offering up a four-day Gran Turismo Sport game preview, a week ahead of it’s long-time-coming release, October 17th. PlayStation Plus members can pre-load the demo October 7th, and will be able to take a few cars for a spin from October 9th through October 12th. The demo will offer the first chance for players test out GT Sport’s new features, including a photography mode and custom livery for the racing car of your choice. The teaser will also have a new matchmaking system built-in to ensure you are racing similarly-skilled drivers and not just getting lapped all the time.

The demo will also include a campaign mode, and any money earned here will be transferable to the game itself, up to $1 million of it, at least. The game will also be the first in the 20 year-old franchise to connect to PlayStation VR, although Sony isn’t saying whether the demo will include this feature. The game has take its time getting to the PlayStation 4, but Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi believes the GT team has ‘striven to create something that delivers an unprecedented experience in terms of the graphics, sound, and physics simulation; an experience that can only be enjoyed on PlayStation’. Playing ahead of launch might have its own benefits too: there’s those real prizes.
