Before its launch, you can try out Polyphony Digital’s new game!
Sony announced on the PlayStation Blog that Gran Turismo Sport is getting a demo. There are massive differences between the US and EU regions, so we’ll detail these separately. In North America, PlayStation Plus subscribers can access the demo from October 9, 12 AM Pacific, and everyone else can give it a shot from 6 PM Pacific. The preload starts from 8 AM PT on October 7, and the demo will end on October 12, at 8 AM. In Europe, the demo starts at 10 AM BST on October 9, and it will end on October 12, at 2 PM BST, with the preload starting on October 7, 10 AM BST. The EU blog mentioned no advantage for the PlayStation Plus subscribers.
Quoting the post about the content of the demo: „In Sport mode, drivers can prove just how fast they are by putting down their fastest lap time. At the end of each qualifying session, it’s an all-out battle with up to 24 cars against drivers with similar performance abilities ensuring each race is equal, fair, and highly competitive.
Campaign mode gives players the chance to improve their driving skills across numerous challenges, missions, and circuit experiences. Each of these modes plays a key role in making every driver better prepared for racing online against others. As you complete various trial and Daily Workouts, you will be awarded numerous vehicle unlocks, in-game currency, and Experience Points, furthering your Driver Profile and personal garage.
For those looking just to jump in and drive, the Arcade mode offers a wide range of vehicle classes on three pre-selected circuit configurations with different terrains. Whether you want to go for high-speed oval racing on Northern Isle, hone your technical skills on Dragon Trail, or drift sideways through the corners in a rally, race on your terms as you choose from multiple driving aids including braking and or steering to hone your skills. You can also race against a friend offline in the classic 2-player split screen mode.
The True HDR workflow and physics-based rendering tech of Scapes must be experienced firsthand to be truly appreciated. This is not your traditional photo mode as each photo location contains all the light energy information of that scene, enabling you to place your personalized car in hundreds of real-world locations. To round out the demo experience, the Livery Editor allows you to add your personal touch of customization through numerous logo designs. You can also change the color of the car, wheels, mirrors, hood, spoiler, and much more.”
Gran Turismo Sport will launch on October 17, as a PlayStation 4-exclusive.
