Gran Turismo Sport Is Coming To PS4 On November

GT Fans, the moment you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived!

Following the exclusive event in London today, CEO of Polyphony Digital Kazunori Yamauchi officially announced Gran Turismo Sport on PS4 would be released on November 15th, 2016, on which the date coincides with the 3rd anniversary of PS4. Gran Turismo Sport is the first Gran Turismo title made for the PlayStation 4 and first overall since 2013's Gran Turismo 6, and it will also be compatible with Sony's PlayStation VR headset upon its launch this October.

GT mastermind Yamauchi-san gave the game a 40-minute introduction at a presentation in London Thursday morning, where he explained that every car model was made from scratch, all will have an interior view, and that they will be a mix of real and “fantasy cars.” Gran Turismo Sport will have the first half-mile oval in a game of the series, and a new race track based on the highways of Japan. Classic real race-spots like Brands Hatch, Willow Springs and the Nürburgring will be drivable. Dirt tracks(!) will also be in the mix. Looks like we’re getting a ton of car customization options and some kind of decorative photo mode as well.

Sony also made a new Gran Turismo Sport gameplay trailer available, and it's full of gleaming cars moving through insanely detailed versions of some of the world's great racetracks. You can view the trailer below.

 

The gameplay footage reveals quite a bit about the new game, which has been built to support PlayStation VR from the ground up. There are a ton of new photo locations, and you can stage multiple cars in those settings. There's a livery editor, so complex custom paint schemes are now possible. 

Sony has also announced the pre-order offerings for GT Sport, which you can check on PlayStation Blog. You can also check out Yamauchi-san’s briefing below for all the details the studio is releasing so far on the game. I'm not a fan of the Gran Turismo games, but I feel excited for the fans who are anticipating the release of GT Sport. The release date of GT Sport is also a perfect timing for Sony since it is dated during the holiday season. And with the release of PS VR, it looks like the sales of PS4 will sky-rocket on November. So are you getting Gran Turismo Sport on November 15?

Have they announced any official wheel compatibility? I assume because GT5 and GT6 fully supported the Logitech wheels, GT Sport will too, but I haven't heard anything.

The sight of stock 2015+ Mustang and Hellcat give me hope for a well rounded car list finally in GT. American sports cars have always been far and in between in these game. I hope the german car list increases as well. BMW and Benz properties have been under utilized as well.

Overall, this looks good, but not sold yet. Hopefully the collision mechanics have been overhauled and the racing actually feels like racing, not a driving simulator with robotic competition.

But the graphics are gorgeous. Looks like they learned from that premium/standard mess they pulled in GT5/6!!!

Definitely, the A.I. needs work for sure, and being able to enable full damage on all game modes would be nice.

And yeah I was surprised there wasn't a reaction by anyone when he said all interiors will be completely modelled. Lol

Just saw the trailer, looks awesome. Last one I played(and didn't finish was gt5) kind of excited about it after watching the trailer. Loving all the paint customization options. Probably won't get it day one but eventually.
By the way, I'm one of those psx members that rarely post. Just wanted to say great job to everyone posting the articles. This has been my #1 gaming site for years now. Was a little worried when Ben said his "goodbye " but not anymore. Thank you everyone that has been posting the articles.

i was hoping for more detailed graphics.
The cars seem fine but some of those tracks look so clean and unweathered, having a synthetic vibe to them.
Sure it's a sim and all but Gran Turismo has usually been a visual powerhouse.

I wonder if Forza has anything to do with that.

With what now?

BTW, I tried the Forza beta on PC. In some ways I really like it but in other ways things bothered me. The real fast cars I tried, like the Lambroghini or Ferrari's seemed to control way too "fun"

I suppose I couldve turned off TCS but I would imagine in real life there's some level of computed traction logic those nice cars actually have. TCS in Forza seems too good to be true, making it feel fake.

I do really like how the rain builds puddles on the tracks dynamically, making for hazard zones to avoid on the track.
