Gran Turismo Sport is the latest game in the epic PlayStation driving sim franchise. It’s coming out on November 15, 2016, but you can get your first taste of what just might be the most realistic driving experience you can have on your TV right here.
GT mastermind Yamauchi-san gave the game a 40-minute introduction at a presentation in London Thursday morning, where he explained that every car model was made from scratch, all will have an interior view, and that they will be a mix of real and “fantasy cars.”
Gran Turismo Sport will have the first half-mile oval in a game of the series, and a new race track based on the highways of Japan. Classic real race-spots like Brands Hatch , Willow Springs and the Nürburgring will be drivable. Dirt tracks(!) will also be in the mix.
Looks like we’re getting a ton of car customization options and some kind of decorative photo mode as well.
I’m actually going to play a demo of the game in a couple hours on a simulator, and I’ll give you a quick breakdown of my impressions when I get back. So far all we can tell is that the images in the trailer look downright delicious, but then again I still hold Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit III as the standard of car gaming.
For now, check out Yamauchi-san’s briefing for all the details the studio is releasing so far:
