Gran Turismo Sport, the latest entry in the series developed by Polyphony Digital, is quickly approaching its release date, and Sony took advantage of the Tokyo Game Show 2017 to show more of the game.
The new gameplay footage, which can be checked out below, showcases the Suzuka track as well as many of the game's features.
Speaking about the Gran Turismo Sport features, it's been reported last week that most of them will require an active internet connection. This is a consequence of the online championship endorsed by the FIA, requiring things to be as fair as possible.
This year’s Gran Turismo includes a world first — the only video game with an online Championship endorsed by the world’s motoring governing body, the FIA. As a competition endorsed by the same organization that oversees some of the biggest races in the world we’re taking racing integrity very seriously for the FIA GT Championship.
In order to ensure fair racing for all, GT Sport will require an internet connection for the majority of functionality. This connectivity requirement is to ensure that progress, car availability, and driver ratings are properly maintained at all times.
PlayStation Plus will only be needed for online multiplayer. Portions of the Arcade Mode, including limited two-player split screen, single-player races on select tracks, and time trials can still be played in an offline environment.
Gran Turismo Sport releases exclusively on PlayStation 4 on October 17th in all regions.
