Gamers worried about microtransactions invading the industry will not have little to fear about GT Sport. Creator Kazunori Yamauchi has confirmed that the racing title will not have microtransactions. This announcement comes from a Gema Show Indo video, and is transcribed by GT World. This news is a big change from Gran Turismo 6 (which you can read a review on!), as it included microtransactions.

With Gran Turismo Sport’s release coming soon, hype yourself up for the game by reading about the campaign mode:

  • Driving School – Drive. Turn. Stop. Let’s learn how to operate a car! Things will gradually become more difficult, but there are videos to refer to when you get stuck.
  • Mission Challenge – Outrun your rivals! Knock over the cones! Clear a variety of missions in tough situations!
  • Circuit Experience – Learn where to brake and where to drive on each track. Watching the videos to learn the track’s key features is [a] great way to improve quickly!

Or how much easier it is for Polyphony Digital to develop for the PlayStation 4 over the PlayStation 3:

Compared to that the PS4 is a piece of hardware that really has the ability to answer to our expectations,” said Yamauchi. “I’ve said this over and over again but this, Gran Turismo Sport, it really has the level of innovation you haven’t seen since Gran Turismo 1 and we’re having a lot of fun developing it, and we’re discovering a lot of things as we develop it.

So it was actually good for us that we started developing for PS4 later on because we then really had the time to do [research and development] on the performance of the hardware which enables us to do things like the physics-based rendering, so it was really good for us that we weren’t in a rush to get something out.

GT Sport will release October 17 for the PlayStation 4.
