In a blog post all about Gran Turismo Sport, Sony gave an overview of what to expect from the racer:
GT Sport is the world’s first racing experience to be built from the ground up to bring global, online competitions sanctioned by the highest governing body of international motorsports, the FIA (Federation International Automobile). Create your legacy as you represent and compete for your home country or favorite manufacturer through multiple race classes, including GT3, Prototype, Rally, and more.
By pre-ordering GT Sport, you’ll receive a three-car pack that includes early access to the Ford Mustang Group B Rally Car, Toyota FT-1 Vision GT Group 3, and Peugeot 908 HDi FAP LMP1. Retailer specific bonuses in North America include early access to the Chevrolet Corvette Group 3 and Nissan NISMO GT-R GT3 N24 at GameStop; GT-themed PS4 Avatar, a GT Sport dynamic theme, and $500,000 in-game credit on the PlayStation Store; and $500,000 in-game credit at Amazon.
PlayStation Europe says to check your local retailer for the different bonuses.
In addition to the standard edition, there’s a $69.99 USD/$89.99 CAD Limited Edition featuring more than $130 worth of content:
- GT Sport Starter Pack (8x Cars) – Gain immediate access to cars within various race class, including GT4, Rally, and more
- $1MM In-Game Credit – Build and customize your personalized garage
- Livery Sticker Pack – Bonus livery of numerous brands and logos
- 30x PS4 GT Sport Themed Avatars – Based on selected GT Sport featured vehicles

In Europe, the special editions include a Collector’s Edition, Steel Book Edition, and Bonus Edition:
Gran Turismo Sport Collector’s Edition includes an exclusive miniature model of the Mercedes-AMG GTS and a detailed car-lover’s guide written by the experts at Polyphony Digital themselves. Both the Steel Book Edition and Bonus Edition, meanwhile, come jam-packed with a selection of digital exclusives and extras.
At a roundtable today, Game Director Kazunori Yamauchi revealed that Gran Turismo Sport won’t be receiving a beta after all. He said they’re sorry about not including it, but doing so saved them three months of time as it takes just “as much effort as the finished master code.”
As for PlayStation VR, it looks like GT Sport will fully support it at launch in all game modes.
