Gran Turismo Sport is a racing game developed by Polyphony Digital and published by Sony for their PS4 platform. Like the previous installments in the series, the game aims to provide a realistic driving experience and accurately recreated high-performance cars. Campaign, Sports, and Arcade modes are included with both online and offline play. GT Sport is also fully compatible with the PlayStation VR headset.
What’s new in the upcoming title is a focus on structured competitive play and eSports. There will be two FIA-sanctioned online championships, one for countries and the other for manufacturers, with the winners awarded at the FIA’s annual prize-giving ceremony in Paris just like real drivers are. Not only that, players will be able to earn a Digital Race License recognized by real-world motorsport clubs in 22 different countries, according to the game’s producer and professional racer Kazunori Yamauchi.
