Gran Turismo Sport
Don’t hold out for Gran Turismo 7 – this is it
Upon being asked whether this is GT7 or a prelude to it, Polyphony Digital legend Kazunori Yamauchi ponders for a moment, before saying “thinking back now, we could have called it GT7”. That’s that sorted, then. And with the same physics engine powering the action, this does feel like an enhanced version of PS3 podium-topper GT6. While there are new features such as PS VR support in a dedicated Tour Mode, new tracks, and interior views for every car, it’s the online side of the game that’s received the biggest overhaul. It’s now a legitimate motorsport, recognised by the FIA itself. Yep, the era of esports has arrived in Gran Turismo, and it’s wonderful. You’ll be able to support your favourite marquee online in the Manufacturer Cup or get patriotic in the Nations Cup, with the finals streamed to the world each week – and we’re promised a full commentary team and TV-style presentation to frame the latter. Oh, and if you actually win the online world championship? You’ll get presented your trophy in Paris like all the other racing drivers. Amazing. It’s still the Gran Turismo you know and love, but it just got serious. We can’t wait.
