New artwork of Polyphony’s Gran Turismo Sport has leaked online, giving us a new look at the rather mysterious new GT title.
Announced back in October, details on Gran Turismo Sport are still rather sparse and the new previews don’t exactly help to clear up any confusion as it is hard to judge whether we`re looking at in-game screenshots. While some of the shots below look more likely to show in-game footage, others appear to be composite images made with real-life backgrounds.
Gran Turismo Sport looks to be placing a major emphasis on online competition and E-Sports, incorporating the partnership with the FIA that was announced a year ago.
Part of this co-operation will be two FIA-sanctioned online championships, “Nations Cup” and “Manufacturers Cup” alongside other E-Sports related events. Furthermore, Gran Turismo Sport is also destined to become the new home of Gran Turismo’s famous GT Academy competition that has helped several gamers to a career in racing.
Gran Turismo Sport will not just be about online racing though as a fairly extensive offline component has been confirmed as well, considering of several game modes.
In terms of technical information, Gran Turismo Sport is confirmed to come with a major overhaul in terms of graphics and sounds, not surprising considering the title has a brand new platform to work with. The title will also extensively support Sony’s upcoming virtual reality headset.
Many questions remain unanswered as there’s no clear confirmation on the title’s scope of content & features and whether Gran Turismo Sport is essentially Gran Turismo 7 or more like a Gran Turismo Prologue type of affair as it is the first GT title on the PS4 platform.
