Gran Turismo Sport has just announced, scheduled to enter beta testing in early 2016, along with support for the PlayStation VR. Make sure you check out the trailer here.
That Gran Turismo SPORT will feature highly evolved graphics and sound quality, not to mention a totally revamped physics engine, should come as no surprise. The true beauty of Gran Turismo SPORT goes much deeper, as it will forever change the way driving games are seen. It will redefine the very definition of “gaming” and “motorsports.”
Two FIA online championships will be featured in Gran Turismo SPORT. What makes these new series special is that the gamer has the option of either playing or simply spectating to take in the motorsports experience as a fan. In the Nations Cup series, players can either drive for their home country or stay on the sidelines and root their countrymen on, while the Manufacturers Cup allows them to drive or support their favorite car maker. In both cases, the gamer is provided with the complete motorsports experience.
And best of all, the winner of each championship will be coroneted in the same way as a real-life race winner, at a prize-giving ceremony held by the FIA. This will mark a historic moment in video gaming as Gran Turismo will officially be recognized as a motorsport.
