Gran Turismo might be greatly associated with PlayStation due to it exclusive tie-in with the console but somehow, it has yet to made a proper debut on PlayStation 4. That about to change later this year as the brand new Gran Turismo Sport will be released for the console on 15 November.
When the game was announced to the world earlier today, something interesting has caught our eyes: it seems that Kuala Lumpur will be featured on Gran Turismo Sport. However, the capital will appear in the game not as a circuit (to our knowledge at the moment) but as one of the sceneries in the game’s new photography-oriented Scapes mode.
Of course, there are other new additions as well including several new circuits such as Tokyo Expressway, Northern Isle Speedway, and Dirt Course. At the same time, Gran Turismo Sport will also feature an offline campaign mode in the style of driving school in order to allow gamers to learn and polish their driving skills.
There’s also the Sport Mode which the online segment of the game and will feature two FIA-certified championship series. The winners of these series will be honored at the annual FIA prize ceremony alongside winners from real life FIA-certified championships such as Formula 1 and WRC which showed how serious the partnership between the people behind Gran Turismo and the world’s motorsports body.
In fact, Gran Turismo Sport players will also able to obtain FIA Gran Turismo Digital License from local sports or motorsports authority that will have the same value as a real life motorsports license. Polyphony Digital stated that 22 countries have agreed to be part of the program although the list will only be revealed later on.
Additionally, spectators are able to watch top racers going against each other in Sport Mode through what Polyphony called as Gran Turismo Live. Such broadcast apparently will take place in the weekends and will be presented in manners that resembles real-life racing events which even include multi-angle race views, and live commentary.
Not to forget, the game will come with a Livery Editor as well. All in all, the new Gran Turismo Sport sounds like something that PlayStation 4 owners and racing game fans alike should look forward to when it goes out into the market this November.
