Gran Turismo Sport launches on 16 November 2016 in the EU, watch the new trailer and read all the info from the unveiling event in London.
Today, at an exclusive unveiling event with Kazunori Yamauchi, we learned that Gran Turismo Sport will release on 15th November 2016 in Japan, 16th November in North America and on 18th November in the EU.
Gran Turismo Sport places you straight in to the driving seat of some of the fastest, most aspirational cars on the planet. These include the very latest road cars recreated with unprecedented precision by the team at Polyphony Digital to deliver the most detailed and authentic models in Gran Turismo history.
Sport – the first new-gen entry in the Gran Turismo series – will include four sets of cars, made up of 137 “super-premium” real-world and fantasy vehicles.
19 tracks (including the return of dirt tracks) will be included, with 27 possible layouts.
It will also include a livery editor, a photo mode called “Scapes” (which will output at 4K resolution), a Twitter-esque timeline feature for events, and there will be an as-yet unspecified companion app released alongside the game. Also this latest iteration will feature PlayStation VR compatibility.
The game is available to pre-order now from both PlayStation Store and retailers across Europe. Before you race off to secure your copy though, you’ll need to decide which version is right for you. On top of the Standard Edition full game, we’ve also got several additional options:
- Gran Turismo Sport Collector’s Edition
- Gran Turismo Sport Steel Book Edition
- Gran Turismo Sport Bonus Edition
Gran Turismo Sport Collector’s Edition includes an exclusive miniature model of the Mercedes-AMG GTS and a detailed car-lover’s guide written by the experts at Polyphony Digital themselves. Both the Steel Book Edition and Bonus Edition, meanwhile, come jam-packed with a selection of digital exclusives and extras.
Selected retailers will also have a range of themed ‘head-start’ packs available to pre-order, so make sure to check in with your local shops to see what’s on offer.
Today’s unveiling also marked the first chance community members have had to get hands on with Gran Turismo Sport, as a select group from Europe, Asia and US competed in a special FIA-licenced GT tournament.
We can’t wait to get some more details and to play this game in November.
