Gran Turismo SPORT Revealed at Paris Game Week

Sign in to follow this  



The PlayStation conference at Paris Game Week has finished and with it we got our first look and information about Gran Turismo SPORT for PlayStation 4.


The next instalment in the GT series, due in 2016 (we'll see) is taking full advantage of their partnership with the FIA (Federation Internationale de l'Automobile) and will have players competing in year-long championships with their favourite manufacturers and racing for their own country's honour. And In a first for video game racing, it is said that the winners will be awarded their spoils in the same manner as real world motorsport champions at an FIA prize giving ceremony.

FIA Gran Turismo Championships

In Gran Turismo Sport, there will be two online championships officially sanctioned by the FIA (Federation Internationale de l’Automobile) running simultaneously. In the Nations Cup, players will be able represent their home country. Whilst in the Manufacturers Cup, players will be driving on behalf of their favorite car manufacturer.


Players will not only be able to race as drivers themselves, they’ll also be able to root for their home country or their favorite manufacturers teams.


The winner of the championship will be awarded in the same manner as real life motorsports champions, at the FIA prize giving ceremony. This will be a historic moment, the first time a video game will officially be recognised as part of the real motoring world.

The usual graphical, audio and physics updates were mentioned and it is not clear at this time how many cars will be in or if we will see the 'standards' return (hope not!), but what we do know is it looks damn good, it showed us some great looking cars and one driver had a very very shiny helmet.


A Beta for GT Sport is due in Spring 2016.
