Free Gran Turismo Sport Demo Coming Next Week

For those who can’t wait to get their hands on the upcoming Gran Turismo: Sport, Sony has officially announced that a free, 4-day demo of the game will be available starting next Monday.

According to Ken Chan – Product Manage at SCEA – on the PlayStation blog, the demo will run from Monday, October 9 through Thursday, October 12. PS Plus members can pre-load the demo starting on October 7 at 8:00am PT. According to the post, any in-game credits earned (up to $1MM) and any unlocked vehicles will be transferable to the full game when it launches on October 17.

More on the upcoming demo:

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 against other 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.

Gran Turismo Sport Launches on October 17 for the PlayStation 4.
