Did the first 8 'beginner' driving school in campaign last night, not too bad. Then tried the first 8 missions... with varying success. Had to do the speedway oval circuit one to hit 155mph sooo many times. Hard but not utterly unforgiving with the sides of the circuit haha.

Need a bit longer at it tonight to see whether it's a launch purchase or not. Found the cornering a bit sticky and overly switchy but need to try out a few more cars first i reckon. Graphics look lush even on a 2k setting :clap:

I found with the speedway race, sports hard tyres where making it difficult for me to turn.

I changed to racing softs for the race in the video and gave me much more movement when turning... Probably how I crashed so early in the race more slack with my moves :rolleyes:

Anyone else tried the Beta? I'm not sure what i think. Tried a few races vs AI last night and even on Begineer setting they race faultlessly! Tried some MP lobbies after that and was very hit and miss to even find anything decent.

Following the release of the limited time demo, we’re excited to share more exciting news with everyone; Gran Turismo and Lewis Hamilton will be joining forces in the latest iteration of the franchise, GT Sport. Lewis will be appearing in game as a mentor to share his racing wisdom with players from around the world to help them improve their driving technique.

Take a look at the video below to hear from Lewis in his own words.

“I have been playing Gran Turismo since I was a child, so to actually be part of the gameplay design has been an incredible experience.” – Lewis Hamilton

Lewis will reveal his driving philosophy and techniques through driving images and interviews for players of Gran Turismo Sport, providing valuable advice to many players who strive to be as fast and strong as Lewis himself.

The team at PDI are really excited to have Lewis as part of the team:

“From watching Lewis drive on TV all these years, I had an idea of how he might drive, but the experience of watching him drive in person was well beyond my wildest expectations. And I’m really glad to be able to share his driving and philosophy with the players in Gran Turismo.” – Kazunori Yamauchi

Demo is pretty limited unsurprisingly. There does seem to be very little offline/campaign content - driving licence stuff, missions, challenges etc... but most of it should be in online racing. Competitive through "Sport" which i tried and gave up on - it only offered 3 races 20 mins apart each hour and they needed the right cars + qualifying... meh. Tried the "lobby" area which is the normal MP bit but with no one on my friends list on to test that out i tried lobbies with randoms... as fugly an experience as you'd expect. It doesn't feel very pick up and play to me.

Don't think it's a day one purchase for me, just didn't feel fun enough. Will probably hang on 3-4 weeks for NFS Payback instead.

Built from the ground up for PS4, GT Sport is Polyphony‘s most ambitious undertaking yet, utilising the latest technologies to deliver “The Real Driving Simulator” experience the franchise has come to be known for.

Focusing on what the franchise does best, GT Sport doubles down on the energy, performance, and adrenaline of motorsport racing. GT Sport is the culmination of Polyphony’s career, with the acclaimed studio and their team of engineers-cum-developers fine-tuning the best motorsport vehicles, along with their most interesting and race-worthy tracks.

Taking GT3: A-Spec’s love for only the best, GT5’s ground-breaking online mode, and GT6’s industry accreditation, GT Sport races onto the PlayStation 4 with the full weight of one of the industry’s most celebrated and experienced developers behind it.

Not only does the PlayStation 4 allow for unparalleled photo-realistic graphics and physics simulation never seen before, but GT Sport’s mechanics were designed not just for the professional driver, but to align with human intuition.

GT Sport is optimised for the very beginner with accessibility features, and right up to the seasoned professionals and core Gran Turismo racers.

Tried the demo last night with a few time trials and a 10 lap race on speedway the game looks excellent and plays really well was a lot of fun, enhancements with hdr look great.

time trial on dirt, off to a bumpy start but found my wheels and took to driving ok:

next up a 10 lap race on speedway (daytona, daytona, daytona) involved in a collision after the first corner of the race, felt like the good old days of the vgf gt5 league :rolleyes:

Edited video with a few different angles of the collision after the first corner... looks like I was to blame :oops:

Did somebody say Daytona?

Lewis Hamilton vs. the Nürburgring
Also dropping today, we’re excited to introduce the first of our Lewis Hamilton mentor videos, as Lewis goes head to head with the infamous Nürburgring circuit.

With two videos, one aimed at beginners and one for the more seasoned racer, the four-time world champion offers guidance and tips on how to navigate this notoriously challenging circuit.

Both videos provide a real insight into how Lewis races – from how he selects his racing lines and braking points, to his general racing philosophy that guides how he tackles every circuit.

Both the beginner and expert videos can be found in the Lewis Hamilton section of the Brand Central area. Rarely has Lewis provided this level of insight into what makes him one of the best racers in the world, so be sure to check them out before you take to the track.

Take a sneak peek below at what you can look forward to seeing in-game.

Remember to stay tuned to Gran Turismo and PlayStation channels to ensure you’re up-to-date with the latest news.

For now though, from everyone at Polyphony Digital, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

Sony’s flagship racer Gran Turismo Sport will be getting 10 new cars in a free update this week.

The news comes by way of a cryptic tweet from series producer Kaz Yamauchi, who posted the silhouettes of 10 cars at the weekend.

Thankfully, helpful petrolheads and Gran Turismo fans were quick to jump in to identify the mystery vehicles.

Models like the Toyota Supra – which has appeared in every numbered Gran Turismo up to now – drew the most hype, along with cult classics like the Lamborghini Diablo, Dodge Viper and McLaren F1.

The most common predictions for cars coming to the game with this new update are as follows:

  • Toyota Supra
  • Lamborghini Diablo
  • Dodge Viper
  • McLaren F1
  • Toyota 2000GT
  • Toyota FT1
  • Jaguar XJ
  • Ford GT
  • Ferrari 330
  • And another Ferrari – opinions are pretty split between the GTO and 308.
