Everyone was waiting for Gran Turismo 7 to be released for PS4, but ended up being shocked to learn that Polyphony Digital would be releasing Gran Turismo Sport first. We aren’t quite sure exactly when we will get to play the game, but do know the beta will be out pretty soon (early 2016). However, you can already pre-order the game on Amazon.
GT Sport differentiates from GT6, and presumably GT7, by being an online game where players can race each other in a “real life” competition. This is all thanks to a partnership with FIA. Two online championships will be going on, Nations Cup, which is players racing for their home country and the Manufacturers Cup, which will be about players using their favorite car manufacture. Similar in a way to GT Academy, if you win the championship, you actually go on to collect a real life trophy alongside real life motorsports champions. This is pretty huge as it will be the first time in history that a video game will be recognized as a real world motoring sport.
