Gran Turismo Sport Demo Drives onto PS4 Next Week

Gran Turismo Sport is getting a special demo on PlayStation 4, with any and all progress able to carry over to the full game when it releases later in October.


Gran Turismo Sport is set to arrive on PlayStation 4 later in October, but Sony and Polyphony Digital are looking to get to the starting line a little early. It was announced Tuesday morning that GT Sport would get a special demo set to launch on Monday, October 9, with all in-game progress set to carry over to the main game.

According to PlayStation.Blog, PlayStation Plus members can jump right into the demo on October 9 at 12AM PT. The rest of the PlayStation 4 faithful can start their engines on that same day at 6PM PT. The demo is set to last through October 12 at 8AM PT.

The demo will feature Sport, Campaign, Arcade, Scapes Photography, and Custom Livery Editor. Those playing in the campaign can start unlocking vehicles, in-game currency, and experience out of the gate. As mentioned, any progress earned will count towards the main game when Gran Turismo Sport releases in full. Players can also customize their unlocks with the Custom Livery Editor or take photos of their cars with the detailed real-world backdrops in the Scapes Photography mode. Those playing around in Arcade mode can also play with a friend via local split-screen.

Once the demo ends, the wait for the full game will be a brief one. Gran Turismo Sport will hit PlayStation 4 on October 17, five days after the end of the demo.
