Get ready race fans; on March 17th the closed beta for Gran Turismo Sport begins. The beta will offer online racing and a varying group of tracks and cars to choose from.
This beta will also allow players to interact with the Driver Profile function. The function will allow for better matchmaking in online races. According to, founder of Polyphony Digital and creator of Gran Turismo Kazunori Yamauchi, “the introduction of Sportsmanship Rating (tracks a player’s behavior and manners on-track) and Driver Rating (represents the overall speed of the player and how well they perform in races) will ensure those that race online will be equally matched, naturally creating a balanced group of competitive drivers for every race”.
Initially the closed beta will only be open to players in the U.S. and only for select PSN ID’s. It will also only be available at specific times during the day. Keep an eye on your PS4 dashboard messages In case you are one of the lucky ones.
Polyphony says, “Stay Tuned” for information on a larger beta coming soon.
