‘Gran Turismo Sport’ Update Brings Time Trials to ‘PSVR Mode’

News Bits


Gran Turismo Sport (2017), the VR-compatible PS4 racing sim, just got an update that lets PSVR owners take a crack at all available circuits in time trial mode.

GT Sport isn’t exactly a fully fledged PSVR title as such, since you can’t play the full game in VR. You’re instead relegated to a much less extensive “VR Arcade” mode that features all racetracks but only a single AI opponent with a non-adjustable (and frankly laughable) difficulty.

Small recompense: you’ll now be able speed around all available circuits in time trial mode, which at very least adds a touch more replayablity to the title which has basically languished for PSVR owners since launch – outside the odd update that added more cars and tracks to the list, that is.

And no, the game still doesn’t feature multiplayer, and it’s possible it never will, according to a GameWatch interview (Japanese) with game designer Kazunori Yamauchi.

“Although I do not have plans for multiplayer at the moment, I am planning to make time trials possible in VR mode with future updates,” said Yamauchi.

    Looking at a video posted on YouTube it looks like all of the tracks are available on the VR Time Trial mode, not just the two highlighted in the press release

    Does this man hate VR or something?

    • Olivér Láng

      Kind a yes. He was disappointed with the first gen. version of VR. He was hoping to have better resolution, better fov, etc. So he did not like it, we should not either.

        Let’s be honest, on PS4 VR it looks like you are swimming in a mass of pixels. Compared to my PC it’s pathetic.

    This is why DriveClubVR is still the best VR racing game available. Dirt Rally also … DriveClub is AMAZING!
