Gran Turismo Sport forges a new standard for the racing
genre and empowers gamers to develop their virtual careers on the track with
advanced online competition on PlayStation 4. With multiple class divisions,
gamers of all skill levels will compete for a chance to become legends in the
world’s first and only online championships certified by the FIA (Fédération
Internationale de l'Automobile).
GT League – Based on the classic ‘GT Mode’ campaign of
previous titles in the franchise, players can race through a series of cup
competitions from beginner to pro levels. From fan-favourite series like the
Sunday Cup and Clubman Cup to endurance racing and more.
Campaign – Master the art of racing with the Campaign mode
in Gran Turismo Sport, featuring the ‘Driving School’ where you learn skills
for racing, and ‘Mission Challenges,’ where you can test yourself on a variety
of different track configurations across different stages. Real life video
tutorials are provided for the missions, allowing you to learn strategy for the
more difficult challenges. Even beginner racers will learn to progress through
the lessons with ease.
Premium Cars – Over 180 of some of the most highly coveted
cars in automotive culture, from Vision Gran Turismo concept vehicles to Gran
Turismo Sport prototypes, all have been remodelled from the ground up for the PlayStation
4 with revamped engine sounds unique to each of the cars.
FIA-Certified Online Championships – Represent and compete
on behalf of home country or favourite car manufacturer through two certified
Championships – Nations Cup & Manufacturer Fan Cup.
Advanced Matchmaking – Race against friends with multiple
class divisions across age, region, and driving behaviour, allowing drivers of
varying skill levels and sportsmanship to compete and develop individually.
Brand Central – A new form of car discovery through an interactive
past, present, and future timeline through the lens of auto manufacturers. Discover
decades of automotive heritage from the greatest manufacturers and racing legends
with curated and premium video content, factual and insightful information, exclusive
GT Vision cars, Scapes scenes, and more.
Livery Customization – With a fully featured livery editor,
personalize vehicles with performance brand stickers and logos with the freedom
to design the exteriors of cars as you please. From stock cars to race cars, possibilities
for exterior designs are limitless, and these newly created designs can be seen
and shared with other players in the game.
Realistic ‘Scapes’ Photography – Featuring stunning real-world
images from over 1,000 locations across the globe, create custom static 4K images
for sharing on social media in this new format of photography that has been
born from True HDR workflow and physics-based rendering technologies. Because
each image also contains spacial information for that scene, players can ‘place’
cars into real-world locations and photographs.
Historic Race Circuits – Race through 27 different tracks across 19
locations from around the world, including the ever-popular Nürburgring, the
legendary Tokyo Expressway, and the half-mile oval track of Northern Isle
Social Networking – Gran Turismo Sport offers a communication
space between friends, expanding through cars and driving, including a gallery
in which you can display content you have created, and a timeline of you and
your friends’ activities. Content such as replays, photos, livery sets and
decals can be shared between friends and the wider Gran Turismo community.
Dynamic 4K and HDR on PS4 Pro – Compatible with the best
imaging technologies available today, providing Dynamic 4K, 60fps, HDR and Wide
Colour Gamut on the new PS4 Pro. Not only has the output been made to support
HDR TV signal formats, a True HDR workflow was specially established to
maintain true HDR and wide colour processing from the initial material
capturing processes to the final output – even on standard PS4 hardware.
VR Tour – Discover the realism of the driver’s seat with
Gran Turismo Sport on the PlayStation VR, offering the user a 360-degree 3D
environment to experience. Using the dedicated ‘VR Tour’ experience in the
Arcade Mode, drive one-on-one races as though you are really sitting in the
driver seat, surrounded by a real car interior.
