Great news for racing games fans. Gran Turismo Sport is getting closer to release, even if there is no release date announced yet.
The game was originally scheduled to launch on November 15 in North America and Japan, but was then delayed.
Time Needed to Perfect the Game
Back then, Kazunori Yamauchi, the founder of Polyphony Digital, declared that the studio needed more time to perfect the gameplay, and it looks like they are now delivering with the new advancement. Other than the short trailer with some gameplay with a Peugeot Vision GT, there is another video with 50 minutes of gameplay on the tracks available in the beta version. All the videos show that the game runs at 60 fps.
On Wednesday, Polyphony released a new version of their close beta client for the PS4, mainly aimed to improve the game’s physics and the Force Feedback. The update will download 9 GB of data on your console. It is still possible to apply for the closed beta by visiting the game’s official site, although players will be selected with an undisclosed mechanism. The closed beta is now active in Europe, too.
Moreover, it is also possible to have a look to some of the game’s cars here. The game will have a total of 137 cars, but not all of them are real cars as the title will feature also concept models. There also will be 27 tracks.
Release in 2017
Gran Turismo Sport is aimed for a 2017 release, but no release date has been announced yet. Probably, more details will be available at the upcoming E3 in Los Angeles, to be held from June 13-15.
The game will be distributed exclusively to the PlayStation 4 and will also be compatible with PS VR. The title is available for pre-order from the PlayStation Store for $59.99. International prices may vary. By pre-ordering, gamers will receive a 3-Car Pack, $500,000 In-Game Credit, and Dynamic Theme.
