Gran Turismo Sport Teased During E3 Gaming Convention

By -


New Gran Turismo Sport trailer teased, and it is gorgeous.

It’s that time of year again: E3, the electronic expo, is happening now in Los Angeles. This is the biggest gaming convention in the world. Unsurprisingly, a lot of game producers use E3 as a showcase for projects and upcoming games. This year in particular has been good for gamers and car enthusiasts alike. We covered the combination launch of Forza Motorsport 7 and the new Porsche GT2 RS. Additionally, just before E3, Need for Speed announced it’s comeback with “Need for Speed Payback.” Now, Polyphony Digital, creators of the Gran Turismo franchise, have announced their latest offering: Gran Turismo Sport.

Gran Turismo Sport has been a long term project for the brand. There has not been a mainline Gran Turismo game since 2013’s Gran Turismo 6. Needless to say, pressure is on for Polyphony Digital to produce something world class. Sport has been involved in a closed beta phase for a while now, meaning that fans of the game can sample an unfinished version of the upcoming title.

Curious? Here is an excellent visualization of how GT Sport stacks up against some of it’s fierce competition:

Naturally, the game is stunning to look at, however, as has always been the case, the engine note doesn’t quite stack up to the pretty visuals. I can look beyond however, as the game play is certain to be fantastic. With a release date of Fall, 2017, GT Sport will soon be in the hands of the buying public. What do you think? Will you pick up a copy of latest racing title coming to the Playstation 4? Gran Turismo Sport E3 Announcement
