Sony and Polyphony Digital have released not one, but three new trailers for the upcoming GT Sport, featuring commentary from Nissan Pro drivers. These trailers go over how races will work with PlayStation VR, advanced matchmaking, and more. With professional racers testing out GT Sport, it’ll seem as though this latest Gran Turismo entry will be the most realistic feeling yet.

The first trailer is a bit of an introduction, titled ‘What do you race for?’:

Well, this is of course the best-looking Gran Turismo game to date, as should be expected. It runs in full 4K resolution, at a locked 60 frames-per-second. Not only that, but HDR is also supported, as is a wider-than-standard color gamut. What this means is that on the proper television, some of the game’s cars will appear more true-to-life than ever before. As Kazunori Yamauchi explained to us in a presentation before our session, at least 10 percent of all cars in previous games have paint colors which fall outside the conventional sRGB color space, so outputting in a wider color gamut will help to reproduce some manufacturers’ color schemes much more accurately, as the game utilizes the BT.2020 color specification. This attention to detail that some gamers might not get to see for a couple of generations’ worth of televisions may feel like overkill, but for motorsport aficionados, no detail is too small to be overlooked.

GT Sport will release October 17 exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
