Big name franchises with VR capabilities are something to be cherished as the platform continues to grow. As seen with Resident Evil 7 early this year, recognized names do wonders for exposure and inspire people to test VR out. The Gran Turismo series is a legendary series of racers and its next installment, along with its limited VR mode, has been revealed to have an October 17th, 2017 release date.
Revealed on the official PlayStation blog including a statement from Polyphony Digital’s president Kazunori Yamauchi, Gran Turismo Sport will be coming to PlayStation with limited and digital deluxe editions in addition to the standard edition. The limited edition ($69.99 MSRP, $89.99 CAN) will include a starter pack of 8 cars, $1 million in-game credit, a sticker pack, 30 GT sport avatars, a chrome helmet for your driver profile, and a steel book case. For those more inclined for digital purchases, the deluxe version ($79.99 MSRP, $99.99 CAN) will include 12 starter cars, double the in-game credit, 60 avatars, and the chrome helmet.
“We’ve strived to create something that delivers an unprecedented experience in terms of the graphics, sound, and physics simulation; an experience that can only be enjoyed on PlayStation,” Yamauchi says. He also expressed that more information about the game will be revealed between now and the release date, including a “full reveal on all the cars and tracks you can look forward to racing on launch day”.
Hopefully, with that news, we’ll get details on exactly what cars and tracks will be available for the game’s included limited PSVR mode. Read our impressions of GT Sport’s VR mode from E3 and get ready to hit the pavement on October 17th for PS4.
