4-Day Gran Turismo Sport Demo Available on October 9; Features Sport, Campaign & Arcade Mode
Sony has announced that a free 4-day Gran Turismo Sport demo will be made available next week on October 9 ahead of the game’s release later this month.
The demo will be made available on October 9th at 6:00pm PT and will officially end on October 12th at 8:00am PT. PS Plus members will be able to pre-load the demo starting from October 7th at 8:00am PT, with access to the game on October 9th, at 12:00am PT.
Personalized garage cars and earned in-game credits will carry over to the full game when it launches on October 17.
Included in the demo are the game’s campaign, sport, and arcade modes. Additionally, Sony and Polyphony Digital have also included the Scapes Photography mode and Custom Livery Editor.
At the start of the demo, drivers will have the option to experience a taste of Sport, Campaign, or Arcade mode. New features such as the innovative Scapes Photography mode and Custom Livery Editor are also available for the very first time.
In Sport mode, drivers can prove just how fast they are by putting down their fastest lap time. At the end of each qualifying session, it’s an all-out battle with up to 24 cars against drivers with similar performance abilities ensuring each race is equal, fair, and highly competitive.
Campaign mode gives players the chance to improve their driving skills across numerous challenges, missions, and circuit experiences. Each of these modes play a key role in making every driver better prepared for racing online against others. As you complete various trial and Daily Workouts, you will be awarded with numerous vehicle unlocks, in-game currency, and Experience Points, furthering your Driver Profile and personal garage.
For those looking to just jump in and drive, the Arcade mode offers a wide range of vehicle classes on three pre-selected circuit configurations with different terrains. Whether you want to go for high-speed oval racing on Northern Isle, hone your technical skills on Dragon Trail, or drift sideways through the corners in rally, race on your own terms as you choose from multiple driving aids including braking and or steering to hone your skills. You can also race against a friend offline in the classic 2-player split screen mode.
The True HDR workflow and physics-based rendering tech of Scapes must be experienced firsthand to be truly appreciated. This is not your traditional photo mode as each photo location contains all the light energy information of that scene, enabling you to place your personalized car in hundreds of real world locations.
To round out the demo experience, the Livery Editor allows you to add your own personal touch of customization through numerous logo designs. You can also change the color of the car, wheels, mirrors, hood, spoiler, and much more.
As said, the limited-time demo will be available on October 9. The full game will release on October 17 for PlayStation 4. You can check out our preview of the racer right here.
