Gran Turismo Sport’s VR Mode Will Be Limited, But Still Offer Racing Thrills
Only 1 vs. 1 races available with PlayStation VR in Gran Turismo Sport’s dedicated VR Drive mode.
We’ve known for some time that Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) Gran Turismo Sport would launch with PlayStation VR compatibility, but to what degree has remained a mystery. That has now changed, with SIE committing to offering a virtual reality (VR) mode at the launch of Gran Turismo Sport later this year.
While expectations of full compatibility may be a bit far fetched, it appears that Gran Turismo Sport’s VR mode may be more limited than that of the popular Driveclub VR. According to SIE, the included VR Drive mode will offer only 1 vs. 1 races. An update to the Gran Turismo Sport page on the official Gran Turimso website reads:
“The game is compatible with the PS VR, providing the user a 360 degree 3D environment to experience. There is a dedicated VR Drive mode in the Arcade Mode where you can drive one on one races as though you are really sitting in the driver seat, surrounded by a real car interior. [sic]”
Gran Turismo Sport will launch exclusively for PlayStation 4 in October 2017, and VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on the included VR Drive gameplay mode.
