Greetings Gran Turismo fans! Now that we are in the final countdown to the launch of GT Sport, we thought there was no better way to show our appreciation than by giving the PS community a head start on their racing journey. We are excited to announce a free GT Sport 4-day demo, available via PlayStation Store from October 9th through October 12th.

PS Plus members will be able to pre-load the demo starting from October 7th at 8:00am PT, with access to the game on October 9th, at 12:00am PT. For everyone else, download and access to the demo starts October 9th at 6:00pm PT. The demo officially ends October 12th at 8:00am PT.

You won’t want to miss this limited time demo, as your earned in-game credit (up to $1MM) and personalized garage vehicles are transferable to the full game when it launches October 17th.

The GT Sport demo will give fans an in-depth look at some of the new features, geared to define the future of motorsports for all levels of drivers, from first timers to 20 year veterans of the franchise. You drive and tune on your own terms, while the new matchmaking system ensures you’re always racing against others of similar abilities.

At the start of the demo, drivers will have the option to experience a taste of Sport, Campaign, or Arcade mode. New features such as the innovative Scapes Photography mode and Custom Livery Editor are also available for the very first time.

In Sport mode, drivers can prove just how fast they are by putting down their fastest lap time. At the end of each qualifying session, it’s an all-out battle with up to 24 cars against drivers with similar performance abilities ensuring each race is equal, fair, and highly competitive.

Campaign mode gives players the chance to improve their driving skills across numerous challenges, missions, and circuit experiences. Each of these modes play a key role in making every driver better prepared for racing online against others. As you complete various trial and Daily Workouts, you will be awarded with numerous vehicle unlocks, in-game currency, and Experience Points, furthering your Driver Profile and personal garage.

For those looking to just jump in and drive, the Arcade mode offers a wide range of vehicle classes on three pre-selected circuit configurations with different terrains. Whether you want to go for high-speed oval racing on Northern Isle, hone your technical skills on Dragon Trail, or drift sideways through the corners in rally, race on your own terms as you choose from multiple driving aids including braking and or steering to hone your skills. You can also race against a friend offline in the classic 2-player split screen mode.

The True HDR workflow and physics-based rendering tech of Scapes must be experienced firsthand to be truly appreciated. This is not your traditional photo mode as each photo location contains all the light energy information of that scene, enabling you to place your personalized car in hundreds of real world locations.

To round out the demo experience, the Livery Editor allows you to add your own personal touch of customization through numerous logo designs. You can also change the color of the car, wheels, mirrors, hood, spoiler, and much more.

Hopefully they demo alleviates the usual concerns I have when a game release sneaks up on me.

Nice. I've been tossing between either getting Driveclub or wait for this as my one racing game to show off the PS4 (Pro), this seems like the better candidate owing to the Pro enhancements. The demo should be a great taste for me.

It says pre-load the demo on the 7th if you're on PS+ and then play on the 9th.

Edit: You've changed it now.

Good way to do a stress test of the servers for the actual release, but I have to say after the Drive Club debacle, if the online ends up having issues on a game that was ostensibly made to be played online, Sony will only have itself to blame on this one (well, and PD/ Kaz too if they pushed the online shift).

Will probably give this a try as a PS+ user even though I suck at racers, because why not?

Hope it's every bit as good as it should be for racing fans on Playstation :)

Nice 4 days of demo, then just a 5 day wait until the game comes out.

Not a big racer guy but I will of course try this.

First thing I searched for when I got into the thread. IQ in VR on an OG PS4 is the make-or-break factor for me with this game. If it doesn't look any better than Drive Club or Dirt Rally, I'll pass.

Still I'll have to wait to see what's available and what's not in the full game as I don't plan on getting PSN+ for one game.

This.
It could backfire big-time for Sony and PD.

Hopefully they are prepared.

"disturbing" means something that leads to high anxiety.

On the other hand, I'm super pleased that this demo is even going to exist since I haven't had a single chance to try this game beforehand!

I'll try the demo, probably the first GT I won't buy though. Not interested in multi player and driving school only.

Edit:

Seems like its a free demo on Australian PS Store

PS Plus exclusive on USA PS Store
