Amongst the pre-PlayStation E3 conference earlier this morning, Sony took to its official PlayStation Twitter to announce a bevy of games information before the show itself had even begun. One of these was further confirmation of the visual fidelity and game speed of Gran Turismo Sport, the latest game from the oft-tardy Polyphonic Digital.
The PlayStation twitter account announced prior to the PlayStation E3 conference that Gran Turismo Sport would in fact be running at 4K60, that’s 4K resolution 60 frames per second.
But we already knew that, PlayStation has previously stated this saying it will run in 4K60 at 1800p checkerboard. So what does that mean to you? It still looks really charming. Provided you have a PlayStation 4 Pro of course.
Gran Turismo Sport has been in development for quite some time, and it has only been in recent weeks that Polyphonic Digital has been keen to showcase even more of the game. I don’t know why they were being so coy, it looks flipping great.
It will be based on the iRacing style, whereby its primary focus is on that of an online racing community. With all the official licensing in place from the likes of the FIA (the motorsports governing body), it’s in a prime position to do quite well.
The official line on this is:
‘Gran Turismo 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’.
So we know it is coming out later this year, and it will be great to see the Ferrari red that Kazunori Yamauchi has been gushing about in previous interviews. Just to see if it is all it’s cracked up to be. To be fair, it does look rather grand.
Gran Turismo Sport will release on PlayStation 4 this year, probably.
