Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced a Gran Turismo Sport open beta that will be held starting from March 17th for the USA players.
During the open beta, participants will be able to compete online with a selected number of cars and tracks, that will be often changed in order to provide a variety of configurations. Also, the open beta of Gran Turismo sport will support the Sportsmanship Rating and Driver Rating.
The first will keep track of the drivers’ behavior, while the other one will take note of the overall speed and performance.

The initial phase of the closed BETA, starting on March 17th, will only be open to selected US PSN IDs, so be sure to check your “Messages” on the PS4 dashboard to see if you’ve been invited.
During the initial phase, our servers will be open for users during specific times across the day. We will share these times closer to the BETA launch across our social channels and GT.com.
Polyphony Digital, the development team of the game, has announced that Gran Turismo Sport will support PS VR, but won’t be entirely playable in VR.
According to Polyphony Digital President, Kazanori Yamauchi, Gran Turismo Sport won’t be playable in VR from start to end, but will have a VR Tour mode instead. It means that you might not be able to race with the headset plugged in.
Gran Turismo Sport is a racing video game in development at Polyphony Digital and will release in 2017 for Sony’s PlayStation 4.
