Gran Turismo Sport Announced For PS4, Beta Early Next Year.

Paris Games Week is on, and Sony has kicked it off with a press conference that included a hearty dose of new announcements and details for PlayStation VR, including heavy-hitter franchises Tekken and Gran Turismo.During the announcement, Yamauchi detailed two year-long championships that players will be able to participate in, which culminate in a ceremony where winners will celebrate alongside real-world racing champions. “Building on its legacy as the most realistic and accessible driving simulator, GT Sport has partnered with the FIA to push the boundaries of racing games”, reads the game’s blurb. The PlayStation 4 accessory looks like it’s going to play a large role in Sony’s 2016 offerings when it launches sometime in the first half of next year. Details are slim right now, but Gran Turismo Sport will have everything you expect (ie. sleek cars going fast in a realistic environment) and will additionally introduce an online racing series that will reportedly be “recognized alongside real world motor racing by the FIA” (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile).

The first is called the Nations Cup where you represent your nation, and the second is the Manufacturer Fan Cup that will allow you to race for different auto companies. Sony began its VR showing with a new trailer for RIGS, a competitive title that, based on what I’ve seen of it, I’m going to describe as “Robot Quidditch.” There are mech suits, goals, and team-based shooting, all from a first-person perspective.

The GT series is Sony’s most successful racing franchise and there have been numerous hints at the officially unannounced Gran Turismo 7 being in development. The trailer showed off an arena based in Dubai, full of smooth edges and multi-level paths, all surrounded by a lovely view of the futuristic version of the city. GT Sport seems to be created to deliver on the classic commitment to realism that the franchise is known for while adding a range of new features that can draw in a new group of gamers.

Polyphony Digital’s Kazunori Yamauchi was on stage to announce the game (alongside his adorable notepad-wielding translator), but didn’t offer an awful lot of detail. Another first-person game, this one had a trailer where the player character crept nervously under a dino stampede before pausing in their tracks before a menacing T-Rex type, Jurassic Park style. The best part of each announcement, however, was the glimpse we got of face models in highly CG environments pretending to be immersed in the magic of virtual reality.
