Following a recent leak, Sony has officially announced Gran Turismo Sport demo which will continue for 4 days. Gran Turismo Demo will start on October 9, 2017, and will continue till October 12 and those with PS Plus membership will get to try out the demo on October 7.

Players’ progress from the Gran Turismo Sport demo such as personalized garage vehicles and more will be transferred automatically to the full version should they decide to purchase it.

The GT Sport demo will give fans an in-depth look at some of the new features, geared to define the future of motorsports for all levels of drivers, from first timers to 20 year veterans of the franchise. You drive and tune on your own terms, while the new matchmaking system ensures you’re always racing against others of similar abilities.

Players will have the option to get into the campaign mode or the arcade mode and note that Gran Turismo Sport demo will only give you a taste of these two game modes. You can check out full details regarding the upcoming demo by following this link.

Gran Turismo Sport is coming to PS4, however, according to the studio, they have developed the game with a theoretical PS5 in mind. According to Yamauchi, “It takes six months to create a single car. It’s over-specced for PS4 Pro. So we are building for future versions of the console rather than the one we see today”.

The studio further claims that Gran Turismo Sport will have no problem running at 8K on PlayStation 5, saying “I think it would be no problem to run it at 8K even”.

Also, there will be no microtransactions in the game which makes sense since 85% of Gran Turismo Sport content is single-player only.

Gran Turismo Sport is an upcoming racing video game in development at Polyphony Digital and will launch on October 17, 2017, exclusively for PlayStation 4.
