Watch Eight Minutes of Gran Turismo Sport 4K Gameplay

Gran Turismo Sport GT Sport (6)

Sony just uploaded a new episode of PlayStation Underground to their YouTube channel, and this week’s episode revolves around Gran Turismo Sport‘s single-player campaign. The eight minute video shows off plenty of footage from Polyphony Digital’s upcoming racing game, and will give you a good idea of what to expect before it releases in October. It looks to be coming along rather nicely, especially in 4K.

Check out the Gran Turismo Sport campaign mode footage below:

PlayStation LifeStyle was lucky enough to go hands-on with Gran Turismo Sport at E3 2017. Here’s what writer Paulmichael Contreras had to say about the latest racing game published by Sony in his preview:

Gran Turismo Sport is a no-holds-barred racing simulator. Now, sure, we were playing in ideal settings, in a cockpit setup that your average gamer won’t be able to replicate. But Gran Turismo is fun to any racing fan, regardless as to how they are playing. Running with all of today’s latest graphical bells and whistles, and then some – 4K, HDR, 60 frames per second, extended color gamut – it’s going to be a hard game to beat on a technical front. Polyphony Digital is poised to give games like Forza Motorsport 7 a run for their money, if Gran Turismo Sport does indeed launch in Fall 2017 as currently scheduled.

He also got to go hands-on with the ridiculously cool (and equally as expensive) Thrustmaster T-GT controller:

Speaking of realism, the Thrustmaster T-GT deserves a mention here. At the aforementioned ~$800 price tag, this steering wheel is likely priced out of many gamers’ consideration. But it felt so unbelievably lifelike (I had to fight a lot harder than I thought I had to once I started to spin in a rally race) that I started to attempt to conjure up a budget where I could afford such a luxury, before I crashed back down to Earth and realized that I could buy a PSVR headset, lesser steering wheel, and still have money left over for a copy of Gran Turismo Sport. The T-GT is a wheel designed for those of us who are willing to sacrifice to create the perfect environment to play these kinds of games in. The type who obsess over getting lap times down by hundredths or even thousandths of a second. Rest assured, there is a market for these wheels, it’s just probably not most of us, and that’s not only due to price factors.

Gran Turismo Sport releases on October 17 in North America and October 18 in Europe for PlayStation 4.
